Freezing eggs

The quality of a woman's eggs decreases with age, as does the chance of getting pregnant. Therefore, for couples who want to have children, but the time is not right, we recommend freezing the woman's eggs for a more suitable time.

A woman is most fertile up to the age of 35, and this is also the best time to freeze her eggs.

The process of freezing eggs

The process of retrieving and freezing eggs is preceded by a gynaecological examination, blood tests and hormonal preparation. The situation is different for each woman, which is why we approach each patient individually. We recommend that you first contact our coordinators, who will be happy to advise you and arrange a consultation, during which you will learn all the necessary information and plan the next step.

We also offer couples from all over the world the opportunity to have their partner's sperm frozen. Sperm quality also decreases with age. The quality of healthy sperm can also be affected by the environment in which the man lives.
