Is Freezing Your Eggs Before Chemotherapy The Right Move

Egg freezing allows women to preserve their fertility for a number of reasons.  For women who have a cancer diagnosis, egg freezing enables them to harvest and save their eggs before they are negatively impacted by chemotherapy.  The process of harvesting and freezing eggs gives women facing chemotherapy peace of mind knowing that they have eggs ready for them once they’ve completed treatment and are ready to start a family.   

The health of each client is at the forefront of fertility care experts.  To ensure that each patient receives the care that she needs, the fertility care team that oversees the egg freezing cycle reviews the case with her medical team.  This way each woman is adequately monitored and the fertility medication is reviewed to ensure the treatment protocol does not interfere with her existing medical treatment.   

During an egg harvesting cycle, fertility medication is given to promote the maturation of multiple eggs.  These eggs are harvested, frozen, and then stored until the woman has completed her chemotherapy treatment and is ready to use them.  During a fertility preservation cycle a woman can expect:

  • To be closely monitored through blood work and ultrasound
  • To have regular follow ups with the fertility care team
  • To be prescribed fertility medication in order to produce multiple eggs
  • To have the eggs retrieved in an outpatient microsurgery procedure
  • To receive follow up care
