What is Fertility Preservation?
Fertility preservation is the cryopreservation or freezing of eggs, embryos, sperm or other reproductive tissue in order to protect your options and build a family in the future. There are many types of fertility preservation including sperm, egg and tissue freezing. Fertility preservation is ideal for cancer patients about to undergo radiation or chemotherapy, for women with a history of early menopause and for other individuals that may not be ready to have a family now, but would like to have one in the future.
Types of Fertility Preservation
- Egg Freezing - Also known oocyte vitrification, egg banking and egg cryopreservation.
- Sperm - Also known sperm banking and sperm cryopreservation.
Additionally, we offer cryopreservation of the remaining embryos after an IVF cycle.
