Why Choose Egg Freezing?

Career and Education

Many women choose to focus on their careers or education before starting a family. Egg freezing allows them the flexibility to pursue their goals without sacrificing their reproductive potential.

Relationship Status

Women who have not yet found the right partner can freeze their eggs to preserve their fertility until they are ready to start a family.

Genetic Concerns

For women with a family history of early menopause or other fertility-related conditions, egg freezing can serve as a proactive measure to safeguard their reproductive future.

The Egg Freezing Process

Our experienced team at PFCLA guides patients through the egg freezing process with care and precision.


Initial Consultation

Our fertility specialists review your medical history, discuss your goals, and determine if egg freezing is the right choice for you.


Ovarian Stimulation

You will undergo hormone injections to stimulate the growth and maturation of multiple eggs within your ovaries. This process typically takes 10-12 days and is closely monitored with blood tests and ultrasounds.


Egg Retrieval

Under light sedation, a skilled PFCLA physician retrieves mature eggs using a minimally invasive, ultrasound-guided procedure.



Our expert embryologists carefully freeze and store your eggs in our state-of-the-art laboratory using a process called vitrification, which ensures optimal preservation.



Your frozen eggs are securely stored in our facility until you are ready to use them for conception.

Egg Freezing FAQs

To help you better understand the egg freezing process, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions:

Is Egg Freezing Right for You?

The optimal time to consider egg freezing is when a woman is in her reproductive prime, typically before the age of 35. During this time, both egg quality and quantity are at their peak, increasing the chances of successful preservation and future pregnancy. However, women who are older than 35 should not be discouraged from exploring this option, as individual circumstances vary, and successful outcomes can still be achieved. Consultation with a fertility specialist can help determine the best time for egg freezing based on a woman's unique situation.

Step 1: Fertility Assessment
If you're considering egg freezing and want to understand your current fertility status, scheduling a fertility assessment is the first step. A fertility assessment typically involves a comprehensive evaluation of your reproductive health, including blood tests to measure hormone levels, ultrasounds to assess the ovaries and uterus, and a review of your medical and family history. These tests provide valuable insights into your fertility and can help guide you in making informed decisions about egg freezing and other fertility preservation options.

Step 2: Consult with a Fertility Specialist
Once you have decided to explore egg freezing, it's crucial to consult with a fertility specialist experienced in the field. During the consultation, the specialist will review your fertility assessment results, discuss the egg freezing process in detail, and address any questions or concerns you may have. They will also work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that takes into account your unique needs and goals, ensuring you are well-informed and confident in your decision to proceed with egg freezing.

Step 3: Egg Retrieval and Cryopreservation
After completing a fertility assessment and consulting with a fertility specialist, you can decide if egg freezing is the right choice for you. If you choose to move forward with the process, your fertility team will guide you through each step, from ovarian stimulation and egg retrieval to the cryopreservation and storage of your eggs. By taking this proactive approach to fertility preservation, you can secure your reproductive future and expand your family planning options, giving you the freedom to start a family when you are ready.
