"Our egg freezing center is unique in that it offers twenty of the best fertility experts throughout New England, New York, and Arizona.”
Boston, Massachusetts (PRWEB) June 29, 2015
Boston IVF and IVF New England, two of the largest fertility centers in the country, today announced the launch of The Egg Freezing Center at Boston IVF and IVF New England, a comprehensive fertility preservation program that empowers women to take control of their future fertility.
Egg freezing is the process of retrieving, freezing and storing a woman’s eggs for future use, effectively allowing women to suspend the biological clock and bank their eggs for future use. Female fertility begins to decline near age 30, and the older a woman gets, the chances of a successful pregnancy declines and the likelihood of infertility increases.
The Egg Freezing Center at Boston IVF and IVF New England combines to form the most experienced and successful egg preservation program available in the Northeast. With over 75,000 babies born since 1986, both centers are recognized as pioneers in the specialty of egg freezing.
In 2006 Boston IVF was responsible for the first Boston egg freezing birth to result from a frozen egg.
“When considering egg freezing programs, patients must ask how many babies at each center has resulted from cycles using frozen eggs,” said Dr. Brian Berger, co-director of The Egg Freezing Center at Boston IVF and IVF New England. “Many programs have performed hundreds of egg freezing cycles, but relatively few have thawed eggs and reported live birth rates from those frozen eggs. Boston IVF and IVF New England are among the few centers in the world that have performed hundreds of egg thaw cycles, and reported exceptional live birth rates from frozen eggs,” he continued.
Egg freezing benefits women who are not in a suitable relationship right now, are focused on their career, or just aren’t ready to have children. It locks in their chance of a successful pregnancy in the future at the age their eggs are harvested; so if they freeze their eggs at age 30 and use them at 40, the success rate is that of a 30 year old. The technology is also a valuable option for women who are facing a cancer diagnosis and will have chemotherapy or radiation treatments, which negatively affects their fertility.
Women are born with over 2 million eggs at birth, and the number declines sharply over time. At age 30, a woman possesses roughly 100,000 eggs and by the time she reaches menopause at age 45, the number of viable eggs is close to zero.
"Our Boston egg freezing center is unique in that it offers twenty of the best fertility experts not only throughout New England, but also in New York and Arizona,” said Dr. David Ryley, Reproductive Endocrinologist at The Egg Freezing Center at Boston IVF and IVF New England."
"We utilize egg freezing technologies on a daily basis, which is a significant indicator of our success.”
