Egg freezing is the most common type of fertility preservation treatment for women diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Through Conventional IVF, a woman’s natural egg production is stimulated with fertility drugs into producing several eggs. Typically, 10 to 15 eggs are produced per fresh IVF cycle. These eggs are then surgically retrieved and cryopreserved using an advanced technique known as vitrification.
Vitrification – Flash Freezing Method
Our founder – Dr. John Zhang – was one of the first doctors in the United States to implement vitrification as a method of freezing eggs. The Doctor was one of the first doctors in New York to facilitate a live birth using egg freezing fertility preservation.
Vitrification is a flash-freezing method preventing the formation of ice crystals between the cells forming an egg. Ice crystals can damage an egg’s cells. By surgically retrieving and cryopreserving a woman’s eggs through vitrification for future fertilization, the eggs are protected from the adverse effects of ovarian cancer treatments, such as chemo and radiation.
Embryo Cryopreservation and Future FET Procedures
When egg freezing is not recommended by a patient’s oncologist, or it is not the preferred option by the patient herself – embryo cryopreservation – is commonly used to preserve a couple’s future fertility through IVF and FET technology.
- Embryo cryopreservation is the process of surgically retrieving eggs, fertilizing them in vitro (in a laboratory setting), and then freezing high quality embryos for future transfer.
- A couple can increase their chances of conceiving a child biologically related to both the mother and father.
- When thawed, embryos can be transferred to the mother’s uterus – or – to the uterus of a gestational surrogate should the mother’s uterus be unamenable to transfer and implantation.
- Frozen embryos can give a couple the best chances of pregnancy after recovery from ovarian cancer.
Ovarian Tissue Transplant
The outer membrane of an ovary is where a woman’s eggs are located. Ovarian tissue freezing is accomplished in an outpatient surgical procedure by removing a thin piece of the outer membrane of one of the woman’s ovary – the preserved ovary. This ovarian tissue is cryopreserved for later transplant to the woman’s other ovary – the non-preserved ovary.
