What is Ovarian Tissue Cryopreservation?

Ovarian Cryopreservation is the process of cryopreserving, or freezing, a small portion of tissue from the ovary of a woman. The tissue is frozen to be able to be used later to help women conceive. It is used to prolong fertility and make it possible for women to conceive after their biological clocks say that they can’t. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Who does it

There are many reasons that a woman might want to undergo the process of ovarian cryopreservation. One of the most common reasons is a woman who is undergoing cancer treatments. It is also a good choice for women who want to preserve their fertility for a long period of time. Sometimes, if very young women are at risk for premature ovarian failure, they might want to undergo ovarian cryopreservation.

Why it’s done

Ovarian Cryopreservation is done to prolong fertility. It is used for women who want to have the option of getting pregnant later in life. There can be a variety of reasons that a woman might want to preserve her fertility. She might want to get pregnant later in life, or she might have a medical condition that will make it harder for her to get pregnant later on in life.

How it’s done

The process of ovarian cryopreservation is actually quite simple. Part of the ovary is removed, and slowly frozen. It is then stored in liquid nitrogen until it is needed. Once it is needed, the tissue is thawed, and implanted back into the body, where it starts to produce new eggs. A woman can then get pregnant naturally, just like any other woman. The most recent research suggests that up to ninety percent of tissue survives during ovarian cryopreservation, making it a great choice for many women.

Where it’s done

Ovarian Cryopreservation, used to be somewhat of a new and revolutionary procedure, but it is now pretty common. It is no longer considered investigational. You can find fertility clinics everywhere that can do these procedures for you. Ask your doctor if he or she can recommend a fertility clinic to do the procedure, our you can easily find a fertility clinic on your own that can help you. You should always talk at length with your doctor to make sure that ovarian cryopreservation is the right choice for your family.
