NYU Fertility Center - Cryopreservation of Eggs, Sperm and Embryos

New York, NY - United States

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 the general public. By freezing eggs, sperm and embryos in appropriate cases, we can help simplify and lower the cost of future IVF cycles. Patients can also transfer frozen specimens to our facility.
