I had a very positive experience with egg freezing at New Hope. My initial conference with Dr. Zhang was very pleasant. The staff was extremely polite and professional every time I went. I never waited long at all. It's always immaculately clean and I loved the aromatherapy scent in the air. I was able to freeze 22 eggs. I was 39 at the time. The retrieval was not anxiety producing and I didn't feel rushed. If I end up using the frozen eggs, I'll go back to NHFC for the rest of the treatment. – Jessica T posted on Yelp and Facebook 1.21.20
New Hope’s One Good Egg Policy
The production of one good egg in an IVF cycle is critical to a successful transfer and implantation attempt. This is because one high quality egg is key to an accomplished IVF pregnancy. Low quality eggs are not suitable for fertilization. Our fertility specialists consistently achieve high pregnancy success rates for patients by using cutting-edge IVF protocols that produce high quality eggs.
State-of-the-Art Egg Freezing Technology
Only high quality eggs are frozen (cryopreserved) for future thawing and fertilization in vitro using Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI). ICSI is the direct injection of a sperm into an egg. Resulting embryos then begin to grow and are closely monitored in our high-tech controlled lab for five to six days (Blastocyst stage) prior to transfer into the patient's uterus for likely implantation.
Growing Trend of Egg Freezing
80 percent of the eggs cryopreserved today are for women who are choosing to delay childbearing past their prime reproductive years.
The latest data from the Human Fertilisation and Embryo Authority (HFEA) shows the following trends in egg freezing.
- 32 percent of women freezing their eggs were under the age of 35
- 62 percent of women freezing their eggs were under 38
- 27 percent of women thawing their eggs for fertilization and implantation were over the age of 44
Social Acceptance of Egg Freezing
Single women who are approaching their mid-thirties and beyond are seeking to freeze their eggs in order to preserve their chance of motherhood in the future. Women should not be faced with a lifetime of childlessness because they cannot find the right partner. Nor should they feel pressured into a relationship because of an aging ovarian reserve.
Prime Candidates for Egg Freezing
- Today’s modern women who are focused on their education and career opportunities
- Women whose circumstances in life are not presently conducive to rearing children
- Women who have not be able to find their life partner
- Women who are facing cancer treatment – chemo or radiation – that could damage the quality of their eggs and/or destroy their ovarian function by sending them into premature menopause
- Women who are undergoing IVF and are likely to produce excessive eggs, but have ethical or religious concerns over freezing embryos
