It is common for a woman’s biological clock to be out of sync with their goals and aspirations. Women are most fertile and have the highest quality eggs from their teenage years until age 35. For many women, this is not the ideal time to start a family. Egg freezing allows women to harvest their eggs when they are at their peak in order to preserve their fertility. This way, when the woman is ready to start a family, she can rest assured that she has eggs stored that are of a high quality and are well suited for fertilization.
New Hope Fertility Center is conveniently located in Manhattan and provides personalized fertility care including egg freezing and banking. By customizing each woman’s treatment plan, New Hope is able to have high success rates addressing and preventing infertility.
In order to preserve fertility, each woman undergoes an in vitro fertilization protocol that is customized to her unique needs.
- Oral and injectable fertility medication is used to promote the growth of multiple eggs.
- Each woman is closely monitored in order to watch her progress and make adjustments as needed.
- Once the eggs are mature, they are harvested in an outpatient procedure.
- The eggs are evaluated for quality with the ones best suited for fertilization stored for use when the woman is ready.
Using the newest technology, New Hope has a success rate of 98% for eggs surviving the freezing and thawing process with vitrification. This is in contrast to the 55% survival rate experienced with traditional freezing methods. Vitrification flash freezes eggs, reducing the temperature from 98.6 to the storage level in a matter of seconds. With traditional freezing methods, the eggs were slowly brought down to storage temperature. The slow speed of the freezing process allows for the formation of ice crystals which can damage the egg. Additionally, vitrification removes the water in an egg and replaces it with cryoprotectants. This process further reduces the likelihood of the eggs developing ice crystals.
