EGGsafe-AI is an egg freezing package available exclusively at CARE. EGGsafe-AI makes egg freezing and storage more simple and effective.
We use a non-invasive, image analysis of your eggs powered by Artificial Intelligence: it delivers the insights for EGGsafe-AI with CARE.
The AI tool is based on thousands of egg images and is able to detect signals and patterns within the egg that the human eye can’t see. The AI software was able to outperform senior embryologists by more than 20% at predicting whether an egg was of high enough quality to reach a blastocyst stage.
With this assessment your clinic team can give you more personalized feedback on the quality of your eggs, including a report with images of your eggs. This empowers you to make informed decisions about your future fertility.

By ensuring you meet these criteria, we'll be able to offer you treatment knowing you have a realistic chance of producing enough eggs for storage to give you a high and realistic chance of having a baby when you are ready.
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.
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*
*up to 4 cycles
When you are ready to start your family, you can use your frozen eggs in IVF treatment. A treatment plan will be devised for you, and your eggs thawed in the embryology lab, using special warming solutions. They are then fertilised with sperm (either your partner’s or donor sperm) to create embryos.
At the appropriate time, your embryos will be transferred to your uterus in a straightforward non-surgical procedure. Your doctor will use ultrasound guidance to insert a soft catheter through the cervix and into the uterus. The embryo or embryos pass through the catheter and into your uterus, where hopefully, one will implant.
After a period of approximately 2 weeks you will take a pregnancy test.

It makes egg freezing simpler and, we believe, could make it more effective. The fixed price of the EGGsafe-AI package includes all egg collections and the preparation, cryopreservation (freezing) and storage of your eggs for two years, with an additional cost for medication. You can also extend the storage time if you need to. Ultimately, by collecting and freezing 20 eggs in total, we believe when you're ready to start your family we'll be able to give you your very best chance of success.
