What Is Oocyte (Egg) Storage?

Oocyte storage is the storage of a woman’s frozen oocytes for future use. To collect oocytes, women are often administered fertility drugs to stimulate the ovaries into producing more eggs. The eggs can then be used in one of many different types of fertilization methods, or frozen and stored for future treatment cycles or donation. If eggs are to be stored, they are cryopreserved by either the vitrification technique or the more conventional slow-freeze method and transferred to liquid nitrogen-filled tanks for long-term cryopreservation. Oocyte freezing, once considered experimental, is now successful and widely offered by clinics around the globe. The American Society for Reproductive Medicine lifted the experimental label from Oocyte freezing in young women in late 2012 due to the successful data which has been presented.

How Do I Get Started With Oocyte Storage?

We do not provide oocyte retrieval or freezing services ourselves. We have established valuable and long-lasting relationships with clinics that do. These clinics are part of our network of retrieval or freezing centers, our Fertility Preservation Network who provides our patients with oocyte freezing services. After preservation, ReproTech coordinates the transportation of your frozen oocytes to our facilities for their long-term storage.

Oocyte storage consultation appointments are available for scheduling within one to three days of your initial call. To begin the process of freezing your oocytes, please visit our Network of Freezing Centers to find an Oocyte Freezing Center near you.
