How Egg Freezing Works

At Generation Next Fertility, we have the best equipment, personnel, and facility in New York City. For our egg freezing, we use a flash-freezing technique called vitrification which dehydrates and freezes the eggs instantaneously, contributing to our incredible 90% survival rate when thawing.

Your eggs will be frozen right here in our state-of-the-art lab. Once they are frozen, we move the eggs into a liquid nitrogen storage tank. Here, they will stay safe until you decide you are ready to use them.

What is the best time to freeze my eggs?

According to ASRM (American Society of Reproductive Medicine) the best time to freeze your eggs is in your 20s and 30s. During this time you have a higher ovarian reserve (the amount of eggs in your ovaries).

How long does the egg freezing process take?

The egg freezing process typically takes between 10-14 days. The process begins with the start of medication and ends with your egg retrieval.

What are the side effects of egg freezing?

In very rare cases, (1-5% of) patients may experience Egg Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome. OHSS is associated with swollen ovaries and the collection of fluid in the abdominal cavity. After the egg retrieval, it is typical to experience spotting, cramping and nausea for a few days.
