Egg and Embryo Freezing

Appointment New Patient Appointment or 214-645-8300

 Cryopreservation is a common process to freeze eggs and embryos.

A common use of cryopreservation is to freeze and store eggs and embryos when a woman defers pregnancy or there are fertility concerns due to impending medical treatment such as cancer therapy or surgery.

Cryopreservation can give a woman or a couple peace of mind and provide the option to have a baby at a later time. 

Cryopreservation Process

When an ovary is stimulated, multiple eggs are produced. Some of these eggs can be fertilized and transferred to the uterus. The remaining embryos, if viable, can be frozen for future use.
