If you are not ready to have children but are concerned about your future fertility, freezing your eggs is one option for fertility preservation. You can freeze your eggs now and use them in an IVF cycle later; in recent years, improved techniques have greatly improved the effectiveness of egg cryopreservation. Below, we will take a look at how and where you can find the best place to freeze your eggs in Springfield.
Reasons to Choose Egg Freezing
Women typically choose to freeze their eggs because their career or personal goals do not match up with their “biological clock.” A woman is most fertile in her 20s, with fertility dropping dramatically after the age of 36 – but more and more women are choosing to build a career while they are younger and put off childbearing until later.
Even when you freeze your eggs, there is still a chance that you will not be able to get pregnant when the time comes. However, egg cryopreservation does boost your chances of being able to start a family when you are ready.
Although egg freezing is the right choice for some women, for others a better choice may be embryo freezing. Embryo freezing requires a male partner with whom you want to create embryos, so this method is most commonly recommended for married couples.
Choosing an Egg Freezing Program
The quality of the egg cryopreservation program will have a significant impact on how successful your treatment is. Some things to ask yourself include:
- How long has the clinic been around?
- What are the clinic’s IVF success rates?
- Do you feel comfortable with the doctor’s bedside manner?
- Is the clinic affordable?
- Does the doctor offer egg cryopreservation protocols, such as rapid freezing, which are proven to be the most effective?
