Should I freeze my eggs?
The (modern) age old question. Should I freeze my eggs?
The proper cryopreservation of the egg is arguably one of the trickiest tasks in the fertility laboratory. Compared to embryo freezing, it’s success rates are lower, due to the fact that we are freezing a single cell as opposed to over 100 cells in an embryo. The loss of a cell in an embryo is unlikely to affect the outcome, in contrast, the loss of a cell in an egg leads to the loss of the egg. Nonetheless, egg freezing has come a long way since it’s advent, and with vitrification, we are able to better preserve the integrity of the egg.
At ARGC, we pride ourselves in having some of the most experienced embryologists in the country. With a very diverse background, our lab staff bring in their vast array of expertise and know-how from all over the world to ensure that we are giving you the best chance of success.
Since the inception of ARGC in 1995, we have consistently achieved the highest success rates per cycles started in IVF in the UK every single year. In 1999 we were the first clinic to be licensed to freeze eggs in the UK and in 2000 were the first clinic to thaw eggs and use them. We are now offering the most affordable egg freezing treatment in the country for the appropriate candidates.
