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.

Egg Freezing involves stimulating the ovaries to mature eggs before they are ready to be collected and frozen in the laboratory using the latest technology called Vitrification (fast freezing).

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