Flinders Fertility - Egg, Sperm & Embryo Storage

Bedford Park, South Australia - Australia

Eggs, sperm and embryos can all be frozen and stored, in case you need them in the future. It is a relatively straightforward procedure that has helped many Australian men and women on their path to a family. The technical name for the freezing process is "cryopreservation", and the storage process is called "cryogenic storage". As well as supporting ongoing education and research in the field of Reproductive Medicine and Women’s Health, flindersfertility, formerly known as Flinders Reproductive Medicine, is dedicated to providing patients with equitable and accessible fertility treatment, which is why we offer the most affordable IVF Treatment in South Australia.

As egg freezing technology improves, it may also be used by patients who are undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment. Women who produce many excess eggs may eventually be able to elect to freeze their eggs unfertilized, rather than freezing fertilized embryos. Our lab is equipped with the latest technology for cryopreservation and storage, and we were one of the first clinics in New York City to establish an Egg Freezing Program for
