It is important for patients to know that egg freezing is not a guarantee of future pregnancy, but is rather an insurance policy. As with most insurance policies, one hopes to never use it.

In response to the growing egg freezing trend and curiosity among women in their late 20s and early 30s, ACRM offers egg freezing or vitrification services to allow women to proactively plan for the future and to essentially pause the biological clock.
Egg Freezing refers to the process whereby a mature egg, retrieved from the ovary following several days of hormone stimulation, is cryopreserved. ACRM uses a state-of-the-art technique called vitrification rather than actual “freezing” to protect the egg and increase the success rate of future pregnancy.
There are many reasons why a woman may want to freeze her eggs; whether it’s because they are not at the right time in their life to start their family, concern over their age and the effect on fertility, or a medical condition.
The discussion will be led by Dr. Robin Fogle, a board certified reproductive endocrinologist. The event will include a presentation and an in-depth discussion of female fertility and egg freezing. Possible topics include the egg freezing process, affording egg freezing, and what to consider when making your decision to freeze.
“Egg freezing is a very personal decision,” Dr. Fogle said. “It is important for patients to know that egg freezing is not a guarantee of future pregnancy, but is rather an insurance policy. As with most insurance policies, one hopes to never use it.”
