How long do frozen eggs last?
Storage at a very low temperature does not affect the quality of the eggs. When the time is right for you to start a family with frozen eggs, we will perform assisted reproduction using the latest IVF methods and first-class laboratory procedures.
What is the appropriate age for freezing eggs?
Unfortunately, time plays a much more significant role in egg quality than it does in sperm quality, so preventive cryopreservation of reproductive cells is particularly relevant to women. Biologically, the ideal age for pregnancy is between 20 and 30 years of age, but with the increasing demands of society and individual life circumstances, this is often not met.
According to studies, the quality of eggs begins to decline each month after the age of 35, cumulatively by up to 15% per year. After the age of 40, only 20% of women get pregnant without complications. Freezing eggs is an effective way to preserve them in a reproductively viable condition for potential future fertilisation. However, in order for the method to be successful, healthy and young eggs need to be frozen — the ideal age is under 30, and although eggs can be retrieved at almost any age, we recommend freezing by 35 years old at the latest. This is because freezing eggs later reduces the chances of the fertilised egg developing into a healthy embryo. If you are considering fertility preservation, don’t delay and contact us today.
