  • Egg freezing is a relatively new concept. The
    process of rapid freezing, where eggs are
    immersed in liquid nitrogen and rapidly chilled,
    was only invented in 2005, and it was only
    declared mainstream rather than experimental as a
    fertility treatment in 2012. Arguments about
    failure rates can get pretty heated clinicians
    point to the fact that it seems to have the same
    baby-making success as IVF with a non-frozen egg
    (there are a lot of similarities between the
    procedures), but others don't think that rate's
    good enough - it averages 20-35 percent - to
    justify the expense and invasiveness.

Getting Your Eggs Ready To Be Harvested Can Take
A Month
  • Harvesting eggs (above) from your nethers isn't a
    matter of going in, having them scraped off, and
    wandering on your merry way. The process of
    preparing for egg harvest is very similar to IVF
    you're injected with hormones that stimulate egg
    production and often put on birth control as
    well. This can take over a month, and is liable
    to give you hormonal side affects, including hot
    flashes, nausea, and headaches.
  • Once your body's produced excess eggs, they're
    removed (while you're knocked out, don't worry)
    by a needle into the vagina. Sexy, right? Up till
    this point the procedure is identical to IVF -
    it's what comes next that marks it as different.

Your Eggs Can Be Frozen Either Quickly Or Slowly
  • You may not know this, but there are two
    different ways to freeze eggs once they've been
    taken out of your system. One is called
    vitrification, where eggs are rapidly dehydrated
    using antifreeze (yes, that antifreeze, and no,
    it doesn't harm them) and then plunged into
    liquid nitrogen, freezing them.
  • There's another way, too, which is older and can
    lead to more damage to the eggs. It's known as
    slow freeze, and involves gradually freezing the
    eggs but most clinics now use the vitrification
    method, which was invented in 2005, as it's less
    likely to cause any problems with the eggs'
    viability when they're eventually thawed.

5
Eggs Are Kept Frozen At -320 F
  • This is an industry standard. To give you some
    idea (not that it's possible), the lowest winter
    temperature ever recorded in the Antarctic, the
    coldest place on Earth, is -128.56. In technical
    terms, it is fcking cold.

6
When You're Ready, They're Thawed Fertilized
  • Getting a frozen egg ready for pregnancy isn't
    left up to chance. Instead, once it's thawed -
    which happens incredibly rapidly, usually in a
    day, through immersion in warming liquid - it's
    fertilized by fresh semen from your chosen
    baby-daddy, using an injection directly into the
    egg. Then, after 16 hours, the egg that have been
    injected are inspected, to see if any have been
    fertilized and become embryos.
  • They continue to be watched for three to five
    days, and that's when a fertilized embryo might
    be implanted in your uterus - which, by the way,
    has been prepared for the possibility by a course
    of ovary-blocking medication, so it's not
    producing new eggs.

7
Only 5,000 Babies Have Been Made Using Frozen Eggs
  • Exact data is hard to come by, but only 5,000
    babies are estimated to have been successfully
    born thanks to frozen eggs. The longest anybody
    has seen an egg thawed successfully is 10 years,
    but that was an aberration most common freezing
    periods are measured in months, not years.
    Nobody's ever studied whether the eggs could
    survive any longer, and clinicians will not
    recommend that you risk it.

8
The Success Rate Is Only 24 Percent
  • Out of 414 egg thaws in 2013, according to TIME,
    83 live babies resulted. It's a success rate of
    24 percent - which is good, but not
    earth-shattering. It's also dependent on what age
    you are when you freeze your eggs the older you
    are, the more likely the eggs won't be viable. So
    you should do a lot of research on the financial
    commitments and your family history of
    infertility before you go ahead it may not be
    the right choice for you.

The Minimum Recommended Number Of Eggs To Freeze
Is 10
  • Want to up your chances of a future baby as much
    as possible? Do a batch of eggs in one go. The
    normal number recommended by clinics is 10-20 -
    because it makes the possibility of a viable
    thawed egg that becomes fertilized a lot more
    probable. It's a "just in case" situation - there
    are a lot of reasons that eggs may not become
    embryos or survive the freezing process intact,
    so more eggs means more probability.

The Cost Of The Procedure Is More Expensive Than
Storing The Eggs
  • The two big expenses of freezing your eggs are at
    the start and the end. The freezing process will
    cost an average of 10,000, plus fertility drugs,
    and the thawing and fertilization will take
    another 10,000 chunk. Depending on your state,
    your clinic, and other ideas - like whether
    you're part of an egg-sharing program where other
    women may use your eggs - the cost of storing the
    eggs is calculated yearly, and hits at about
    500. Because fertility treatment is normally
    viewed as an elective procedure, it's unlikely
    that insurance will cover it.

You Can Also Freeze Fertilized Embryos Instead
  • Eggs are delicate things, and not all of them may
    make it out of the nitrogen vat with the
    capability to bear a kid. There is, however,
    another option if you already have a partner or
    sperm donor picked out, it's possible to freeze a
    fertilized embryo too. People sometimes do this
    with unused eggs after an IVF cycle the egg is
    injected with sperm, fertilized, and then frozen
    indefinitely. Unfortunately, this can lead to
    legal complications if you then break up, as
    Sofia Vergara's legal battle over embryos with ex
    - fiance Nick Loeb demonstrates.

  • Whatever your choices, make sure you've got all
    your financial, legal, health, and emotional
    ducks in a row before you make the plunge. Or
    duck eggs, as it were.
