Egg freezing is a method of fertility preservation, which allows women to freeze eggs for later use. This can be for medical or social reasons. Women undergoing egg freezing generally take medication for a number of days to increase the growth of the eggs before they are collected in a short theatre procedure.
Egg vitrification is a newly developed technique which allows eggs to be rapidly frozen, preserving their structural integrity. Our egg survival rate following vitrification is very high, around 70%, which helps to increase the success of having a baby in the future.
