An average woman, at the age of 25 might have only 3,00,000 egg cells. As per a survey, it has been noticed that only 300-400 eggs are released through ovulation during the entire reproductive years of a woman. Hence, it becomes needless to say that the decline in the quantity and quality of the eggs accelerates in her late 30s.

Considering the increasing age, the risk of miscarriages, difficulty in conceiving or birth defects can be seen. In view of the same, experts suggest the optimal age for a woman to enter Egg Freezing as 38 and under.

How many eggs should I freeze?

There is no stereotype answer to this question, as it varies with the age of a woman as well as on one's future family goals also.

Let's get it clear, age sets a bar for women to decide that how efficiently your eggs can work. For example, any woman who is under 35 has around 85 percent chance of having a baby with 15 frozen eggs whereas if a woman who is 38-year-old freezes the same 15 eggs, she stands only 60 percent of chance to be pregnant. So, to be on a safer side any woman who exceeds 38 years of age needs to freeze 30 or more eggs.

The other key factor that needs to be considered is one's family goals. How many kids do you want? One? Three? Or even if you are right now not sure about having kids but still want to reserve that option for future.

It all depends on your decision that what size of family are you planning for. If your plans are to have bigger family then accordingly our Fertility Expert would be advising you that you will need a bigger bank of eggs to be frozen.

Does the Egg Retrieval process hurt?

Thankfully, with the technological advancement the process involves imaging and anaesthesia, as the egg retrieval process is performed under sedation hence it would be completely painless.

Some blood works and ultrasound would be required though the entire process is simple and comfortable.

Though, few patients during this process sometimes can have feeling of fullness or bloating in the pelvic area, as we try to grow a number of Egg follicles to a mature size, but it's quite rare.

Most women are able to get back to their work, the very next day of Egg Retrieval. However, discomfort can be easily managed by applying the heating pad.

What happens to the eggs when I am ready to conceive?

When you are ready to take a call of being a mother, the eggs that you have harvested, they are being retrieved from the storage bank and enters the final stage where they are thawed in order to ensure the high success rate for achieving pregnancy.

Here, the role of your partner comes in.

Post which, the embryo would be transferred after which monitoring would be done to ensure successful pregnancy.

How many eggs would I will be able to freeze in one cycle?

As every individual is different similarly, the number of predicted egg yield also differs for everyone.

As per an analysis, it has been discovered that a woman under 35 freezes 15 eggs per cycle whereas a woman over age 40 will freeze half that, or less.

In addition, to rule out how many eggs will be produced in a cycle. Our Fertility clinic offers a Fertility Assessment where a blood investigation would be conducted to measure patient's Anti - Mullerian hormone. This hormone produces the follicles, which contains immature egg cells, as we all know that hormones in your blood are a good indicator of ovarian reserve.

This blood investigation would be followed with Antral Follicle Count Scan, in which a trans vaginal scan is taken of woman's ovary to determine the number of follicles and immature cells in each ovary.

Both the tests would be performed under the Specialist's supervision and consultation post which the Specialist will discuss your results with you and would use them to visualise how many cycles are required to obtain the recommended number of eggs.

How long the Frozen Eggs can be stored?

Good question.

Let's hear the fact, scientifically speaking, frozen eggs have no ' expiration date' for a reason that cryopreservation involves rapidly cooling the eggs down to 196'C, a temperature at which all biological activity including aging stops. As per the studies, there have been many healthy babies born from eggs frozen for ten years with the successful thaw coming after 14 years. It is evident, once frozen, the health and viability of those eggs does not gets compromised by any means.

What if I am over 30 years of age?

In our Fertility centres, our Experts often come across such patients who have turned or have crossed their 30s and seems worried to consider Egg Freezing as with an increasing age the egg quality and quantity starts declining. Well, to authenticate this our Experts advice the patients to undergo relevant imaging and blood work, such as anti - Mullerian hormone test to identify the clear picture regarding the quantity and quality of the eggs as well as how well the ovaries are functioning.
