Why should I freeze my eggs? 

Dianne, 34

I froze my eggs because I had just broken up with my long term boyfriend, knew my fertility was declining and wanted to do something to feel as though I was investing in my future, giving myself an option for down the track.

It can come as a surprise to realise that despite spending years actively trying to avoid pregnancy, the human reproductive system is not all that efficient. At the peak of fertility in a woman’s 20s she has just a 25 per cent chance of getting pregnant naturally each month. A woman is born with all her eggs but the quality and quantity of a woman’s egg supply rapidly begins to deteriorate after the age of 25.

Should I freeze my eggs at 35?

As age is a key factor in a woman’s ability to conceive, it’s important to consider if children are a part of the future. Many women choose to freeze their eggs because they’re aware of the impact of age on fertility so want to give themselves options in later years.

Whilst egg freezing doesn’t guarantee a baby and is not an insurance policy, many women want to take control of their fertility, to the extent that’s possible. Taking some control over the future can be empowering. Egg freezing provides many with a sense that they are doing all they can, investing in themselves and ensuring that when they are ready to have children, they are confident they considered all the options available to them at an earlier age. Egg freezing for many is an insurance against regret.

What age should I freeze my eggs?

As egg quantity and quality decreases with age, the younger you freeze your eggs, the better. Early 20s to early 30s will offer you the best chance of a baby in the future.

The egg is the largest cell in the human body, full of delicate structures. Beyond the age of 35, a woman’s eggs become more fragile and less likely to survive the freeze/thaw process and create healthy embryos. Maximum chance of success decreases with age.

Taking advantage of prime reproductive age is crucial but understandably in your younger years you are less concerned about your family building timeframe. Make sure you strike a balance that is right for you, consider how many eggs and the quality of eggs you want to freeze when making a decision. If you wait too long, you may be freezing your infertility. 

We recommend consulting a specialist as soon as you start considering egg freezing, so you can talk through options and timeframes with a doctor based on investigative test results, personal circumstances and your hopes for the future.

What is the egg freezing process?

The egg freezing process is a method that’s relatively straightforward. After pre-treatment tests, you will meet with a Fertility Specialist who determines your treatment plan. Counselling will also be offered to help decide if this decision is right for you. Egg stimulation, egg collection, vitrification and storage follow.

Pre-treatment investigations

To start, you will undergo three key tests – two blood tests and one ultrasound. These will be ordered by our Fertility GP during your first appointment. You will then meet with a Fertility Specialist who determines your treatment plan. Counselling will also be offered.

Egg stimulation

Over a period of around ten days we stimulate the ovaries by self-administered injections. You will also be required to attend the clinic for a few early morning blood tests and ultrasounds.

Egg collection

A short 10-20 minute procedure to collect your eggs is the next step in Genea’s Day Surgery in Sydney’s CBD. Although it’s a quick visit, a day off work is recommended.

Vitrification and storage

Your eggs are then vitrified using the latest in freezing technology – Genea’s exclusive freezing system Gavi® - and then safely stored with us until you’re ready to use them. 

Egg freezing success rates

Although egg freezing has greatly improved over the past decade, it should not be considered an insurance policy. The reality is that freezing your eggs and storing them does not guarantee a baby.

However, preserving your fertility through egg freezing can be one way of maximising the potential of having a baby later in life.

Your age at the time of egg freezing is an important consideration and directly impacts the success rates of future IVF cycles using frozen eggs. The overall clinical experience has been that success rates with frozen eggs decline with maternal age (at time of egg collection). Read more about fertility and age.

Limited data exists on egg freezing success rates as fewer than 10 per cent of patients return to use their eggs, such a small cohort doesn’t provide a statistically significant reflection of pregnancy rates as a result of treatment however, it is important for you to consider Genea’s IVF success rates, should you return to use your eggs in the hope of having a baby. The decision you make today will impact your future. As leaders in the IVF field, you can rest assured that should you require IVF, you’re in the best hands down the track.

Our leading science

At Genea Horizon, we use the world’s first automated vitrification instrument, Gavi® to freeze eggs. Traditionally done by hand by scientists, vitrification is a time consuming process which requires a high degree of precision and is vulnerable to human and environmental variances. Gavi®, automates and standardises key stages of the process and ensures eggs are consistently snap frozen, then stores them in a personalised Gavi® pod until they are needed in years to come.

Ensuring you have access to leading science is key when considering egg freezing. Genea Horizon draws on over 30 years’ experience in fertility treatment to offer women the latest, most innovative technologies in the fertility sector. Protecting your eggs in optimal fluid, offering consistency in freezing results, storing your eggs in the ideal environment- all maximise the potential for patients to have a baby in the future.

Genea processes, instruments and products are sold around the world but are exclusive to our clinics in Australia.

On occasion, Genea may use another clinically proven method of vitrification.
