Also called “egg (or oocyte) vitrification, egg cryopreservation and egg storage”
What is egg freezing? This is a fertility treatment that collects eggs from the body and stores them for future use by freezing them with a technique called vitrification. The eggs are collected through IVF treatment. These eggs can be thawed out (or warmed) in the future and fertilized with sperm to produce embryos. These embryos can then be placed inside the prepared womb (uterus) to give a chance of pregnancy. Egg freezing effectively suspends the egg in time, to preserve fertility, until later when the woman wishes a pregnancy.
