If you're looking to preserve your fertility, we offer a unique egg storage package.

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 with EGGsafe 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 is EGGsafe?

EGGsafe is an egg freezing package available exclusively at CARE. EGGsafe makes egg freezing and storage more simple and effective.

CARE embryologists have conducted research to identify an optimal number of eggs that we believe should be stored to give you a good chance of achieving a pregnancy, when you're ready. With EGGsafe we aim to store and keep 20 eggs for you (up to 4 cycles to collect eggs if required).


Can anyone choose EGGsafe?

To go ahead with EGGsafe you will need to

  • be under 36 years of age
  • have a body mass index (BMI) of 35 or less
  • have an antral follicle count (AFC) of over 14

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.


What does treatment with EGGsafe 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.

Egg collection

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, we carefully assess and prepare your eggs and those suitable 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


Why should I choose EGGsafe?

It makes egg freezing simpler and, we believe, could make it more effective. The fixed price of the EGGsafe 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.

Only you can decide when you're ready to start a family - with EGGsafe you can wait until the time is right for you.
