Egg freezing and storage
There are all kinds of reasons why you might not be ready to start your family. However studies show that female fertility begins to decline in your 30s. Storing your eggs in your late 20s to mid 30s is the perfect back-up plan, giving you the freedom to wait until the time is right for you.

What does treatment with EGGsafe-AI involve?
The egg freezing process can be split into stages - stimulation, egg collection, freezing and storage.
During this stage you take medication that encourages your ovaries to safely produce as many eggs as possible.
Once you have completed your course of medication, you will come in to Care for egg collection. Usually under mild sedation or local anaesthetic, we collect the eggs from your ovaries using a needle guided by an ultrasound probe. The procedure takes around 30 minutes.
Freezing and storage
After collection, our embryologists will take photos of your eggs using AI assisted image analysis which generates a report showing the likelihood of each egg successfully fertilizing and becoming a blastocyst. All of the suitable eggs will be frozen and stored for possible future use.
If you choose EGGsafe, we'll guide you through this cycle until we've been able to freeze 20 eggs in up to 4 cycles.
