What is egg freezing?

As women grow older, the quality and quantity of their eggs can decline; making it more difficult to have a baby with their own eggs.

Egg freezing is a treatment which offers women who may not be ready to start a family the option to freeze younger, healthier eggs for use in the future. The process involves stimulating the ovaries to mature eggs, so they are ready to be collected and then frozen in the laboratory using the latest technology called vitrification (fast freezing).

Chances of success from egg freezing are usually affected by the age at which you freeze your eggs. If you freeze your eggs before the age of 35, your success rate will be higher than if you freeze them later, as your eggs will typically be of a higher quality and quantity.

If you have any questions about egg freezing or how to start treatment please contact our experienced team who will be happy to help.


Could freezing my eggs be right for me?

There are many reasons why women choose to freeze their eggs. For example, you may not be quite ready to start a family, perhaps due to not finding the right partner or needing to focus on your career. Egg freezing offers you the option to preserve younger, healthier eggs for use in the future, to improve your chances of having a baby when you are ready.

Our Egg freezing treatment has some simple criteria which patients need to meet: 

39 Be 39 years old or younger

We can provide treatment to women up to & including 39 years old.

If you meet these criteria we will book you in for your initial consultation and assessment. It is important to understand that there are a number of complex medical conditions which could mean you are not eligible for treatment at abc ivf due to our simplified process and protocols. Your personal eligibility for treatment will be decided by your clinician after the scan and initial consultation has taken place.

Frequently asked questions

We are aiming to freeze 10 - 12 eggs per cycle and a patient may need more than one cycle to be confident they have an appropriate number of eggs stored.

Yes, it is still an option. We will tailor the treatment for you. Sometimes we induce your period by giving you some progesterone tablets, and then you can begin your egg freezing cycle.

Yes, you can. If you wish to fertilise them using donor then you will need to pay an additional charge of £1,300 for the donor sperm. If you wish to fertilise them with a partners sperm then you need to be aware of the laws around consent of both partners for using these embryos in the future. To freeze your embryos you will pay for an egg freezing cycle plus £495 to fertilise the eggs. 

If you wish to freeze half of your eggs and fertilise half your eggs then you will also need to be additional freezing and storage for the fertilised eggs. This is £1,140 for freezing and 2 years of storage. Annual storage is £395 after that.

What our patients say

Egg freezing success rates

The success rates of egg freezing and thawing have increased, particularly following the development of vitrification technology.  

Eggs frozen using vitrification can have a higher survival rate - up to 80% of frozen eggs can now survive thawing. This high survival rate can help increase the success of conceiving when using thawed eggs in the future. For women who freeze their eggs under the age of 35 the live birth success rate per embryo transferred can be up to 40% and for women who freeze their eggs in their late 30's or early 40's the success rates could be in single digits.

As with any fertility treatment, egg freezing success rates depend on a number of factors, including the age of the woman at the time of freezing. The optimum age to freeze your eggs is in your 20s or 30s, when egg quality and quantity tends to be best, resulting in higher chances of success. However, it is important to check your individualised success rates with your fertility consultant before making a decision.
