Many couples or individuals who seek treatment at a fertility clinic do so because they have been trying to get pregnant for some time without success. They are looking for a top-notch fertility specialist who can help them to conceive immediately. But what do they do if the goal is to ensure fertility at a yet-to-be-determined future date?
There are many reasons why a woman may need or choose to postpone starting a family and therefore reduce her chances of getting pregnant in the future. For example, more women than ever in history are electing to delay child-bearing until their 30’s or even 40’s. Though the popular saying “40 is the new 30” may hold true for things like general youthful appearance or energy, it does not transfer to fertility. A woman’s chance of conceiving drops every year after the age of 30, with a steeper decline after the age of 35.
Alternately, a woman who is diagnosed with cancer and must undergo treatments such as radiation or chemotherapy has no choice but to wait until she receives a clean bill of health before she attempts to get pregnant. Unfortunately, the very treatment which may have saved her life has a devastatingly destructive effect on a woman’s ability to conceive.
Planning a future family
Fortunately, advances in fertility treatments have produced a way for individuals or couples to plan for the future when faced with a delay in starting their families. Whether a woman is electing to postpone child-bearing or faced with fighting cancer, renowned reproductive endocrinologist Dr. Eva Littman of the highly successful Red Rock Fertility Center in Las Vegas can perform Oocyte Cryopreservation (Egg Freezing).
Egg Freezing is a relatively simple process. After administering hormone treatments for 8-10 days, the professionals at Red Rock Fertility will perform aspiration of eggs under anesthesia in their offices. These eggs can then be frozen for up to twelve years before being implanted into the patient. Then, when a woman is woman is ready to be pregnant, the egg can be thawed, fertilized with sperm and implanted using In Vitro Fertilization.
