Discover The Benefits Of Egg
Egg freezing has long been the holy grail of the fertility
world, especially for women seeking to have a baby after age 35.
Although sperm and embryos (fertilized eggs) have been
successfully frozen for the purposes of fertility preservation
for decades, the freezing of unfertilized eggs (oocytes) has
only recently been successful.
Breakthroughs & Accomplishments
In the past, difficulty
with egg freezing was due to an egg’s tendency to develop ice
crystals during the egg freezing process (which compromise the
integrity of the egg), as well as hardening of the egg’s outer
membrane, making fertilization difficult. Two recent
breakthroughs have allowed scientists to overcome these
The first is the development of a new culture media system that
protects the egg from damage during the freezing/thawing
process. The media system dehydrates the egg during freezing and
dehydrates the egg during thawing, thereby minimizing the
formation of ice crystals. The second breakthrough is a
fertilization technique known as ICSI (Intra-Cytoplasmic Sperm
Injection). With ICSI, the embryologist injects the egg with a
single sperm in order to fertilize it.
While egg freezing is still considered investigational by the
American Society for Reproductive Medicine, by applying these
new advances in oocyte cryopreservation, our scientists have
realized a sharp increase in post-thaw egg freezing survival
rates (as high as 90%) and fertilization rates (as high as 80%).
These improvements have led to pregnancy success rates from
frozen eggs of up to 35% per embryo transfer, and have
facilitated a dramatic increase in the number of babies born
from frozen eggs to over 200 worldwide.
Experience & Innovation
Extend Fertility is the only company to offer egg freezing
nation-wide. All Extend Fertility partner centers are carefully
trained and monitored by recognized experts in the field of egg
freezing, including Dr. Raffaella Fabbri of Bologna, Italy who
is responsible for the largest number of frozen egg babies born
worldwide (70 babies to date). Over 100 women have chosen to
freeze their eggs at an Extend Fertility partner center many are
intent on having their own baby after age 35.
Extend Fertility is committed to advancing the science of egg
freezing. Working together to maximize success, Extend
Fertility’s partner centers have made several proprietary
improvements to the existing published protocols, often yielding
better results than appear in the current literature. Our
partner women's fertility centers are also currently involved in
an ongoing egg freezing research study to improve the published
data and significantly increase the number of babies born from
previously frozen eggs (publication expected in 2006).
Our women's fertility services are delivered through a network
of leading fertility centers across the country. Partner
fertility centers are nominated, approved and trained by Extend
Fertility's Scientific and Medical Advisory Boards, which are
comprised of experts in the field of egg freezing and
reproductive medicine. The experience and infrastructure of our
partner centers provide our clients with the best possible
fertility preservation experience and customer care especially
for women who would like to have a baby after age 35.
Extend Fertility understands that our clients may not live near
one of our partner centers. The majority of our fertility
treatment process can be done from any location — patients only
need to travel to an Extend Fertility partner center for their
egg retrieval procedure.
