The technology of egg freezing didn’t happen overnight.
Here’s how it went down.
The birth of twins in Georgia is the first successful pregnancy using a frozen egg in the United States.
Vitrification is introduced and revolutionizes the way eggs are frozen, and, increases the success rates of IVF.
It’s official: Experts deem egg freezing no longer “experimental.”
Slow and steady does not always win the race. This older technique sometimes failed to perfectly preserve eggs and prevent them from becoming crystallized. Only around 50% of frozen eggs were typically viable following the old freezing process.
Vitrification is a huge improvement in the egg freezing process. It essentially flash-freezes a woman’s eggs, preventing the egg from any crystallization and damage. Vitrification freezes your eggs in a glass-like state and jumps the viability rate up to 90-95%.
Now that you’ve got the big picture, we’ll show you how you fit into it.
