I am Dr. Akansha Mishra, IVF Specialist. Today we will discuss egg or oocyte freezing. Mai iske baare mein isliya baat karna chahti hun kyuki ye technical hai and this is our expertise. And this topic is very relevant in today's scenario. Ismein hum lady ke eggs ko sperm ke sath nahi milate. Ye ek fertility preservation ka tarika hai. Jismein lady ke eggs aise freeze ho jaate hain ki hum unki chice ka sperm leke, unke embryo banake baby bana sakte hain. Kin logon ke liia egg freezing relevant hai? Iske 2 reasons hain medical and social. Social ye ho sakte hain ki lady shaadi ke liya taiyaar nahi hai ya fir divorce hone se vo dusri shaadi ke baare mein soch rahi hai.

Another reason jo lady bahut hi career oriented hoti hain. Jo career mein kuch karna chahti hain and then baby plan karna chahti hain. But after 35 humari fertility reduce hone lag jaati hai. Eggs ki quality reduce hoti hai. Isliya jaruri hai ki time rehte fertility ko vahin hi preserve kar liya jaaye. Un eggs ko preserve kar liya jaaye jis se aage conceive karne mein koi dikkat na ho. Medical reasons mein jo ladies cancer therapies ke liya jana chahti hain. Like cancer therapies se aap ki ovaries mein bahut hi farak padta hai and fir vo eggs banane ke capable nahi ho paati hain. Aise patients ke liya bahut jaruri hai ki unki fertility baad ke liya preserve kar li jaaye. Dusra reason premature ovarian failure ho sakta hai. Ye unke liya hain jinhein pata hai ki genetically unmein problem hai, toh unke liya important hai ki 22-23 saal ki age mein hi eggs freeze kar ke rakh liya jaayein.

Ismein step 1 evaluation hota hai. Hum aap ki medical history lete hain. Hum janna chahte hain ki aap eggs freeze kyun karana chahte hain. Jab ye ho jaate hai toh hum periods ke 2nd day se ovary ko stimulate karna shuru kar dete hain. Naturally, humari body mein 1-2 eggs bante hain. Yhana hum ovary ko apne control mein laake jo stimulation hormones hain unki dose thodi badha ke aap ko injections dete hain hormones ke. Is se jitne jyada eggs ek baari mein bana paayein, vo bana lete hain. Stimulation 10-11 days ke aas pass chalta hai. Jab eggs mature ho jaate hain toh hum halke sibation mein unhein extract kar lete hain. Ye ek normal ultrasound jaisa hi hota hai. Uske baad hum eggs ko vitrification ke through freeze kar lete hain. Hum eggs ki saari biological activities ko stop kar dete hain. Inko hum kitne bhi saalon tak rakh sakte hain. Ye procedure hum 2007 se kar rahein hain. Ye bahut hi technical and delicate procedure hota hai. Eggs body ke sabse bade cells hote hain. Inmein bahut paani hota hai and inhein freeze karna bahut mushkil hota hai. Lekin isi area mein humari expertize hai.

So, agar aap humare paas apne eggs freeze karta hain toh unki guarantee 98-99% hai. Eggs freeze karne ka matlab ye nahi hai ki unhein freeze kar ke rakh lena. Jaruri ye hai ki vo usi form mein aane chahiyai and unki fertility preserve rehni chahiyai. Ismein hum dekhte hain ki ek live birth ke liya kitne eggs freeze kar ke rakhne chahiyai. So, 4-5 frozen eggs se bhi ek liver birth mili hai. So, fir bhi hum kahenge ki 8 eggs freeze hain toh ek live birth ka promise hum aap ko de sakte hain. So, the last question, is egg fertility is safe for the a newborn baby? Numerous studies mein dikhaya gaya hai ki egg freezing is completely safe. So, we empower women to take charge of their fertility and decide when is the best time to have their baby. In absence of this technique, logon ke liya mushkil ho jata tha ki konsa sperm use karna hai. Unhein kabhi kabhi donor sperm ke liya bhi jana padta tha. So, now a woman can decide when does she want to become a mother. Ab unhein apna career hold pe rakhne ki jarurat nahi hai.And agar unhein cancer treatment ke liya jana hai toh unhein worried hone ki jarurat nahi hai ki futture mein unke bache ho payenge ya nahi. So, we give freedom to a woman and this is the message that we want to give that you have the power to decide when you want to be a mother.

Thank You.
