Frequently Asked Questions - Infinite
What is egg freezing?

Egg freezing, also known as mature oocyte cryopreservation, is a method used to save women’s ability to get pregnant in the future.

Eggs harvested from your ovaries are frozen unfertilized and stored for later use. A frozen egg can be thawed, combined with sperm in a lab and implanted in your uterus (in vitro fertilization).

Why would I consider preserving my eggs?

The average age women get pregnant is constantly rising while the ability to conceive is naturally decreasing, a decrease that gets even steeper as the years pass by.Ideally, freezing eggs should be the obvious choice for any woman who might consider conceiving in the future and would like to increase her fertility possibilities for when the time comes.
Some of those who freeze their eggs - will never need to use it. Either because they will end up not choosing to get pregnant in the future or because they will naturally conceive.

However, freezing your eggs today preserves the quality of your eggs as they are now and might be the only option to conceive a child with your own genetic material when in the future you choose to have it.
