Egg freezing or oocyte cryopreservation is a method in which the eggs (oocytes) are removed from a woman's body, frozen, and stored in specific conditions to preserve the reproductivity of a woman. This advanced method is a part of the IVF cycle or recommended by doctors for women with cancer.
Cancer in itself does not affect the reproductivity of a woman unless it is a type of reproductive cancer. The cancer treatments, however, impact the reproductive organs to the extent that the woman may lose her ability to reproduce after freeing herself from cancer. Hence, egg freezing is recommended before starting cancer treatment to preserve the fertility of a woman. The doctor can also recommend egg freezing in cases where the woman is at risk of developing a serious ovarian disease or going through a surgery that may damage the ovaries.
As a woman grows older, the quality of her eggs deteriorates. The eggs are more prone to chromosomal abnormalities and thus the baby born out of such eggs may have certain diseases. If a woman, however, freezes her eggs in the reproductive stage, the chances of having chromosomal abnormalities are zero to minimal.
In recent times, this method of storing eggs is becoming increasingly popular and coming out as a boon for women. It is also highly practised by women who choose to delay maternity due to financial or professional reasons. This enables them to become pregnant even in the later stage of their lives.
