Egg Freezing Parties

Typically held in a private setting, egg freezing parties provide a way for women to learn about fertility preservation without fear of judgment.  In a social setting fertility experts are able to provide detailed information about fertility preservation and answer questions about the process.  Women may be able to speak with others who have had the procedure done so they have a feel for what they may experience.  Information is presented in a pressure free environment so that everyone feels comfortable. 

Fertility Preservation

Biologically, women are most fertile before age 35.  Unfortunately, this time frame is also where many women are focused on their career.  It is common for women to feel torn between pursuing and focusing on their career and starting a family.  It is widely understood that waiting to try and conceive could make having a child more difficult in the future.   This does not have to be the case.  By freezing eggs, women can preserve their fertility and focus on their career without worrying that they are sacrificing their future family. 

Process To Freeze Eggs

Once thought of as experimental, the process of freezing and storing eggs is now a widely accepted fertility treatment.  This change in attitude is largely due to vitrification, a state of the art method of flash freezing eggs. 

Historically, eggs were frozen using a slow dunk process that gradulally reduced the temperature of the eggs.  This gradual cooling set the stage for ice crystal formation – which created devastating damage to eggs.  Ice crystals were largely responsible for the low survival rate of 55 percent for the freezing and thawing process.  Vitrification applies a cryoprotectant to eggs to add a layer of protection.  Then, the eggs are flash frozen.  This change in procedure eliminates the likelihood of ice crystal formation and results in a survival rate of 98 percent.
