Different Techniques That Can Be Used For Egg Freezing!

Different Techniques That Can Be Used For Egg Freezing!

Egg Freezing, which is also known as mature oocyte cryopreservation, refers to the method through which reproductive potential is restored among women. Eggs get harvested from the ovaries, frozen and in an unfertilized manner and are stored for purpose of using them later on. The egg freezing procedure is recommended for those women, who would like to delay conceiving baby due to various kinds of reasons.

Before the freezing of eggs, it is important to first retrieve the eggs. Let us look at how the eggs are retrieved, followed by the procedure of egg freezing through two different ways.

Retrieval of Egg

Egg Retrieval takes place just like it is done in case of in vitro fertilization (IVF). Women would need to be put under medication for hormones or through injections, which shall lead to the stimulation of ovaries, leading to more eggs getting matured. After this women would receive the necessary medication to stimulate ovulation and then the extraction of eggs takes place through the use of a needle. Specialists perform this whole procedure by putting women under the effect of anesthesia and are also guided by ultrasounds. Once the extraction is completed, the freezing takes place.

There are two different techniques involved in the egg freezing process. They include:

Slow Egg Freezing Method

A substance called cryoprotectant is used in order to protect the biological tissues from getting damaged out of freezing. This slow freezing method of getting eggs freezed relies on low initial concentrations of crytoprotectant. The cryoprotectant in low concentration is introduced when the egg is at a relatively warm temperature and still continues to experience the usual functions of a living cell. Then the cryptoprotectant would spread all throughtout thus fill the egg, hence replacing most of the water inside the egg. The egg is then inserted into a small container made of plastic and ultimately get placed inside a cooling chamber. The lowering of temperature, to around -6 degree centigrade, takes place through injecting very tiny amounts of liquid nitrogen into the cooling chamber. The cooling process is controlled by a computer.

The main purpose of these techniques is to avoid ice crystals from getting formed in the egg. During the spreading of the cryoprotectant, if the ice crystals are still present, they can cause damage to the egg and hence the egg may not survive the process of thawing. Then the temperature is lowered further to around -32 degree centigrade. By this time, the egg’s metabolic rate become slow. The container where the egg was placed, is then dipped inside the liquid nitrogen, forming a solid.

Rapid Egg Freezing Method or Vitrification

At the time of rapid freezing method, there is high concentration of initial cryoprotectant whereas the cell remains at room temperature. The egg is unable to stay for long in this temperature and thus gets poured immediately onto the liquid nitrogen. Cryoprotectant spreads at a rapid rate so as to avoid ice-crystal from getting damaged. Vitrification is a very new method for freeing eggs. Recent research has shown that vitrification of eggs largely improves the possibility for survival after thawing and the rates of pregnancy.

Embryo Freezing And Cryo Preservation - Know More About It!

Embryo Freezing And Cryo Preservation - Know More About It!

Cryopreservation is usually performed as a component of in vitro fertilization, which also tends to include ovarian hyperstimulation, retrieval of egg and embryo transfer. With the frozen embryos available, a woman need not undergo stimulation through fertility drugs for having an embryo transfer during a cycle of an infertility treatment. When sperm gets collected during microsurgery or through other means and being frozen for a subsequent cycle of IVF, additional surgery might well be avoided.

Embryo Cryopreservation

At the time of standard manner of treatment for infertility, hormones get used to stimulate the development of multiple eggs. Then, after those eggs are retrieved and fertilized in the laboratory, more embryos might be created than those, which could be transferred quite reasonably to the uterus of a woman. Now, when such extra embryos are of sufficiently good quality, they might get cryopreserved or in simple language, frozen, so that they could get transferred at some future date. Approximately in 25% of IVF cycles, embryo cryopreservation becomes possible, which in turn provides the opportunity to have an extra embryo transferred, without going through the inconvenience and bearing the expense of a full cycle of IVF.

Embryos may get frozen on Day 2 / Day 3 / Day 5 stage. We can freeze the embryos at the age of 40yrs also. One thing should be noted that not all embryos are right candidates for cryopreservation. Unfortunate thing is that some embryos could well get damaged by cryopreservation and certain experiences have even show that high quality embryos are more likely to suvive and become capable of getting developed further after freezing, than other types of embryos. Embryos, which divide slowly or are somehow irregular in other ways, do not perform well after cryopreservation, hence do not get frozen. These problems generally tend to arise among older women, so cryopreservation is normally not a recommended option for patients around the age 40 and older.

Once the embryos are placed in a cryoprotectant solution, they are made to freeze in a computer-controlled device, which is specifically designed for embryo cryopreservation. Embryo storage for a long-term basis takes place in liquid nitrogen at a temperature of -320 degree Fahrenheit.

Embryos that are cryopressed, get replaced either during a natural menstrual cycle or in case of a hormonally controlled cycle. Reasonable amount of care is taken to minimize the possibility of damage caused as a result of cryopreservation. Now, depending upon the stage of embryo during the time of freezing, around 60 and 90% survive this process of freezing. The rate of pregnancy after those embryos get transferred is quite similar to that of those, when embryos are fresh.

Extended amount of storage in liquid nitrogen does not have any effect on an apparent basis on their viability. The embryos which get frozen after numerous years of cryostorage perform equally well as those which are frozen for only a couple of months.

Since the year of 1983, the procedure of cryopreservation has lead to the birth of thousands of babies on a worldwide basis. Though this has been used on an extensive basis, yet there have not been any report of any kinds of increase in birth defects due to cryopreservation.

Who Are The Ideal Candidates For Egg Freezing?

Who Are The Ideal Candidates For Egg Freezing?

The freezing of sperm and embryos has been recognized for long as way to pursue treatments for fertility later on in life. Nowadays, the new techniques for freezing of eggs have lead to greater success. Due to this reason, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine no longer takes egg freezing as a procedure for experimental purposes.

 

Ideal Candidates for Egg Freezing

Now, we look into the candidates, who are ideal for going through the process of egg freezing. They include:

Women Who Intend To Put Off Childbearing: Generally fertility tends to decline with the advancement of age in women. Along with that, women who are in their twenties or thirties have less risk of miscarriage taking place and giving birth to babies with defects, in comparison to aged women. This happens mainly because of the increase in the percentage of embryos with abnormalities in chromosome, which occurs with advancement of age. Due to the problems that are associated with reproductive aging, a lot of women have preferred to use donor eggs, in order to increase their possibilities of bearing a child. Though this is an extremely effective method, yet the choice becomes hard to make as it involves the greatest amount of sacrifice.

Egg Freezing for Cancer Patients: Egg Freezing can be an extremely useful proposition for those who are diagnosed with cancer. The health data from 2001 onwards in the United States shows that around 8% of women who have been diagnosed with cancer, were aged below 40 years. The year 2007, saw an estimated 180,000 women getting diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. Around 5% of all those women who were aged below 40 years during the time of diagnosis, have never had the chance of becoming pregnant. Most of these women have stayed single. Women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, 81% of those young women, who would go through treatments in the form of chemotherapy and radiation will remain alive and be free of ailments after a period of 5 years.

An unfortunate thing for all these women, who are in the childbearing age, chemotherapy and radiation would cause serious damage to the follicles which are in the process of getting matured in the ovaries.

Now, if a woman who has been diagnosed with cancer, looks to get involved with a male partner to conceive but still not ready to go for pregnancy, the ideal option would to create embryos through In Vitro Fertilization or IVF and go on to freeze the embryos. Embryo Cryptopreservation has gone on for year in a successful manner and is now known as the gold standard in preserving fertility.

Egg Freezing for Soldiers: Soldiers are also possible candidates, who could be ideal for egg freezing but unfortunately they tend to get overlooked. These people are often vulnerable towards getting pelvic injuries, which cause damage to their reproductive systems. Military records have shown that since the year 2003, well in excess of 1800 members, most of whom were Army troops, in Afghanistan and Iraq have gone on to suffer such injuries. There are cases when these injuries might well make a soldier incapable of bearing children.
