A Great Article Regarding Egg Freezing and Thawing August 15, 2012

The Donor Network Alliance posted an informative article on Egg Freezing and Thawing that came through my twitter this morning.

ImageDr. Licciardi has written, “Just as not every follicle gives up an egg, not every egg we get is usable. This mostly has to do with egg maturity. We can’t use an immature egg, it will not fertilize later. Basically, getting an egg to mature after we retrieve it is of little value, we count on the eggs to mature in the ovary before we get them. We need tree-ripened fruit.”

The article goes on to talk about the eggs themselves, “There is a bit of a waiting game to get your results. In fresh IVF, you know within a few days where you stand. With egg freezing, you will not know how many good embryos you have until you thaw the eggs maybe years later.”

I encourage you to read the full article found at the DONOR NETWORK ALLIANCE
