As we all know, human fertility is precious and finite. Our optimal fertility occurs according to a biological clock that often does not coincide with medical conditions or individual timelines for having children. For many, fertility can be preserved here at The Center and the timing of your reproduction can be better synced with the rest of your life.
Our fertility experts can help you determine if fertility preservation is a good option for you and in many cases where time is of the utmost concern, can see you quickly so as not to interfere with other medical interventions. Our fertility experts offer the most up to date advanced medical technologies and guarantee the highest level of skill and expertise in successfully using them.
Patients seeking to postpone their family building
People with female reproductive organs are in a race against time when it comes to fertility. The number and quality of eggs starts to decrease even before we are born and our fertility peaks as early as our late twenties. For many, this timeline is not in accordance with other life goals and aspirations such as career pursuits, travel, or establishing financial and relationship security. Freezing your eggs affords you the opportunity to build your family when you are ready.
The process for freezing your eggs involves an initial consult with one of our fertility experts, a series of diagnostic evaluations and tests, and then an individualized treatment plan to stimulate your ovaries to produce a maximum amount of eggs for freezing. Your eggs will be collected during a surgical procedure, evaluated and frozen in our laboratory. Once frozen, they can be stored for many years and can be thawed when you are ready to use them.
Patients undergoing chemotherapy or other treatments that impact fertility
For patients who produce sperm, the fertility preservation process consists of making an appointment at the Center to produce a semen sample for analysis and freezing. Your referring doctor (oncologist, primary care, etc.) will submit a requisition for this process and an urgent, time sensitive appointment can be made often within 24 hours.
Your semen sample will be evaluated by the laboratory professionals at the Center and will be frozen in as many vials as possible in order to maximize your future utilization. In some cases, we may recommend that you return to produce another sample so that we can freeze as many vials as possible. The results of your semen analysis and the number of stored vials will be communicated to you by your referring physician.
For patients who produce eggs, the fertility preservation process begins with a consult with one of our fertility experts. This appointment can usually occur within days of you or your doctor reaching out to us in order to expedite the process and not delay your treatments. We will perform a series of diagnostic evaluations and then design an individualized treatment plan to stimulate your ovaries in order to produce as many eggs as possible for freezing. Your eggs will be collected during a surgical procedure, evaluated and frozen in our laboratory. Once frozen, they can be stored for many years and thawed when you are ready to use them.
