In this article, we will tell you about the things you should know before egg freezing: what are benefits and limitations? If you are ready for pregnancy planning, let’s find out and take a look together.

Benefits of Egg Freezing

  2. Lower the risks of health problems especially when a woman needs some medical treatments that can be harmful to her fertility and can damage her eggs.
  3. Less chance of chromosome abnormalities
  4. Reduce the risks of infertility: Pregnancy at the older age is possible but we suggest freezing the eggs before 35 years of age.
  5. Increase the chance of successful pregnancy with ICSI program.
  6. Quality of eggs will not drop even a mother is getting older.
  7. Enable pregnancy plan in a long-term since the eggs can be frozen as long as desired.

Limitations of Egg Freezing

  1. Complications of egg stimulation
  2. Nausea after egg retrieval: We recommend resting at the clinic or hospital about 1-2 hours to monitor the symptoms before going home.
  3. Abdominal pain: A slight pain can be cured by painkillers. However, in case of abdominal discomfort or pelvic pain, it is recommended to see the doctor immediately.
  4. Injuries from the process of needle aspiration to extract the eggs out of ovary, e.g., light vaginal bleeding, injury to intestine or bladder.
  5. Effects of hormone medicines: flatulence, nausea, headache, abdominal pain. These symptoms need to be monitored. In case of serious abnormalities, kindly visit the doctor urgently.
