Oocyte Freezing


Dr. Supriya Puranik is a renowned IVF specialist in Pune with over 20 years of experience treating fertility problems. As a leading specialist in her field, Dr. Puranik has introduced several cutting-edge treatments that have helped couples realize their dreams of becoming parents. One such treatment is oocyte freezing.

What is Oocyte Freezing?

Oocyte freezing, also known as egg freezing, is a fertility preservation technique that enables women to delay pregnancy by freezing their eggs for future use. During the procedure, healthy eggs are extracted from the ovaries and frozen at a specialized laboratory until the patient is ready to conceive.

The Process:

Oocyte freezing involves several steps:

Step 1: Stimulation of Ovaries

The process’s first step is the ovaries’ hormonal stimulation to promote multiple egg formation.

Step 2: Egg Retrieval

The eggs are retrieved from the ovaries using ultrasound-guided follicular aspiration, a minimally invasive procedure performed under sedation. The procedure involves the placement of a thin needle into the ovarian follicle to retrieve the eggs.

Step 3: Egg Freezing

The retrieved eggs are frozen using a vitrification process, where they are rapidly cooled to a very low temperature, preventing the formation of ice crystals that could damage the oocyte. The frozen eggs will remain viable for several years, typically up to 10 years.

Eligibility Criteria:

Oocyte freezing may be suitable for women who are:

  • Cancer Patients:

Women diagnosed with cancer are about to undergo chemotherapy, radiation, or other cancer treatments that may damage their fertility.

  • Women Interested in Delayed Fertility:

Women who wish to delay pregnancy for personal, educational, or career reasons.

  • Women with Low Egg Reserve:

Women with low egg reserves have failed in previous IVF attempts, where significant numbers of viable eggs cannot be retrieved.

Get in Touch:

Oocyte freezing is a safe and effective method for women to preserve their fertility and increase their chances of becoming biological parents. Dr. Supriya Puranik‘s extensive experience and expertise in fertility treatments help patients understand the process and its implications for their health and well-being. If you have fertility preservation concerns, contact Dr. Puranik’s clinic for a consultation to discuss your needs and eligibility for oocyte freezing.
