Egg Vitrification makes it possible for women to freeze eggs to be fertilised in the future, whether for social/personal or medical reasons. For women with cancer, this treatment is the best way to preserve their fertility prior to undergoing cancer treatment. The age and quality of the eggs will always be the same as when they were originally frozen.
Vitrification is an ultra rapid freezing procedure during which the eggs are exposed to a sudden drop in temperature from 23ºC to minus 196ºC. The complete process begins with hormone stimulation to retrieve eggs from the female’s ovaries for the purpose of vitrifying them in the laboratory and keeping them stored in an authorised bank with the guarantees of confidentiality, security and proper identification.
