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). Your doctor can help you understand how egg freezing
works, the potential risks and whether this method of fertility preservation is
right for you based on your needs and reproductive history.
