Fertility Preservation : Embryo and Oocyte Cryopreservation

Embryo and Oocyte Cryopreservation

Cryopreservation refers to the freezing of eggs (oocytes). Oocyte preservation is an important option for women undergoing cancer treatment, for those who may wish to postpone childbearing for personal or medical reasons, or for women with a family history of early menopause. Recent advances have resulted in improved oocyte survival, fertilization and pregnancy rates.
