What is egg freezing?

Egg freezing is an advanced scientific process that involves freezing one or more unfertilized eggs when they are young and healthy, to help a woman achieve pregnancy later. Egg freezing is also known as mature oocyte cryopreservation. It involves the hormonal stimulation of the ovaries, followed by transvaginal retrieval and subsequent freezing and storage of a woman's viable eggs. In India, the first baby from frozen eggs was born to a 37-year-old woman from Arakkonam in the Vellore district.

Diagnostic tests before egg freezing

Before egg freezing, fertility specialists suggest a few diagnostic tests to get a reliable indication of ovarian reserve. Some common diagnostic tests performed before egg freezing are mentioned below: 

  • Blood tests: It is done on the second or third day of the period to get information about the egg supply. Blood tests help in indicating the level of different hormones such as, Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH). A high level of Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) indicates a good quantity of eggs, while a low level of Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) indicates a low quantity of eggs. 
  • Transvaginal ultrasound: This test is performed to check the functioning of the uterus and the ovaries. The ultrasound helps in counting the number of egg follicles or the structures that hold individual eggs in your ovaries. This number is known as your antral follicle count. The higher the antral follicle count, the higher the ovarian reserve. 

Egg freezing process

  • Before the egg freezing procedure, the fertility specialist performs a brief assessment of the ovarian reserve to check the number of oocytes, and ensure that a woman has enough oocytes to freeze her eggs. Fertility specialists suggest blood tests and a pelvic ultrasound to check the number of oocytes and levels of different hormones. After analyzing the test results, the doctor decides whether to proceed with egg freezing, or if the woman requires some medication. 
  • After that, the fertility specialist conducts ovarian stimulation, similar to IVF. In this procedure, hormonal medications are injected into the ovaries. The fertility specialist then monitors the growth of ovarian follicles and when enough follicles develop, they retrieve the eggs through vaginal aspiration under sedation.  
  • After the egg retrieval, the fertility specialist examines the eggs under a microscope and identifies the mature ones for cryopreservation in the lab. The procedure used to preserve the eggs in a rapid cooling of a liquid nitrogen medium is known as Vitrification.

Frequently Asked Question

How long can I preserve my eggs for?

According to the reports of USC fertility, frozen eggs can be stored for longer than 14 years. There is no evidence that states any birth defects or genetic abnormalities caused by eggs that have been kept preserved for 14 years.

How many eggs should I freeze?

It depends on three primary factors: 

  • Number of children you’d like to have
  • Your age when you are freezing your eggs
  • Number of eggs the doctor is able to retrieve from one cycle

However, to ensure the success of your future pregnancy doctor encourages you to freeze 30-35 eggs. However, the recommendation changes with increasing age. As women get older, they may need to freeze more eggs, as the chance of an egg causing a pregnancy generally declines with advancing age. 


What factors should I consider before freezing my eggs?

You must consider the following factors before egg freezing: 

  • Cost of egg freezing
  • Egg retrieval is a medical procedure that comes with certain risks and complications. Therefore, make sure you are aware of all the risks. 
  • There is no 100% guarantee of a successful pregnancy.


At what age should I consider egg freezing?

Studies suggest that the ideal age for egg freezing is under 35. Women who freeze their eggs before they turn 35 have a better chance of a successful pregnancy as compared to those who freeze their eggs after that.

Are there any side effects of egg freezing?

In some cases, egg freezing may cause minor side effects such as bloating, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. These side effects are likely to go away with time and proper medication. The possibility of severe side effects is very rare. 


What is the success rate of egg freezing?

Women who freeze 10-20 eggs under 35 years of age have the highest number of births per treatment cycle, according to HFEA data. This rate declines with age.

Can egg freezing affect my fertility?

No, egg freezing does not affect your fertility and wouldn’t lower your ovarian reserve. In short, the process of egg freezing doesn’t take anything away from your egg reserve and won’t affect your chance of getting pregnant naturally in the future.

How to prepare for egg freezing?

  • Enrich your diet with omega-3. Fish, canola oil, nuts, and seeds may help improve your chances of having good egg production.
  • Avoid alcohol. High alcohol consumption increases the chances of chronic oxidative stress that may hamper the normal functioning of ovaries. 
  • Limit your caffeine intake. High levels of caffeine decrease the chances of fertility.
