Why is Fertility Preservation Recommended?

Medical Reasons

For women undergoing cancer treatment, chemotherapy can render patients infertile. This fertility technology enables women to focus on their treatment and preserve their fertility for later when they recover and are ready to conceive.

Other medical reasons include being at risk of needing repeated ovarian surgery to treat diseases such as endometriosis or being at risk of losing ovarian function due to autoimmune diseases that also require chemotherapy, bone marrow transplants

Personal Reasons

As women pursue their education and career, egg freezing gives women reassurance that their eggs are no longer aging with them. Egg freezing is ideally suited to women under 35 and for this procedure to be most effective, the earlier you elect to freeze your eggs the better chance of a successful pregnancy later on when you are ready to start a family.

For women who have not yet met their partner or want to experience single motherhood, egg freezing allows them to stop their biological clock as the egg stays the same age as when it was frozen.

What does Fertility Preservation consist of?

Fertility Preservation consists of several assisted reproduction procedures to help achieve pregnancy in the future. For women, we offer egg freezing, which is the process of retrieving and preserving the patient's eggs at very low temperatures through vitrification for an indefinite period.

The eggs will not age, remaining the same when retrieved and frozen.

It consists of the following procedures:

Ovarian Stimulation

The patient starts on medication to stimulate ovaries and help follicles mature for collection and is monitored to ensure the medicine has the desired effect, or it may be adjusted if the patient is over or under-stimulated.

Once our fertility consultant confirms that the right number of follicles is achieved, we will schedule an appointment for the egg retrieval procedure.  

retrieval day

Egg Retrieval Day

Generally, this procedure is scheduled approximately 12 days after starting medication. 

Recovery time is short or minimal, with no cuts or stitches. Most patients return to work the following day.


Egg Retrieval Process

The egg retrieval procedure is relatively quick and painless and conducted under light sedation.

Our fertility specialist collects the eggs using a fine catheter through the vaginal wall into the ovary with light suction. 


Egg Vitrification

We follow a procedure called egg vitrification. Egg vitrification is the fast freeze method using liquid nitrogen in which the eggs are frozen at -196º to ensure they remain young and in the best conditions for the future. 


Egg Preservation

Your frozen eggs are stored in our state-of-the-art facilities, in a controlled lab environment to ensure optimal preservation for future use. 


Thawing for Use

 The success rate using thawed eggs is similar to the use of fresh eggs.

When you are ready, you will need to book an IVF procedure to have those eggs fertilized with your partner's or a donor's sperm.


Our high success rates give proof of our experience helping single women, couples, and families to conceive. This is what our patients say about their experience at Panama Fertility.  Find testimonials from other couples in your situation and the techniques we use for patients like you.

Marybeth & Steve

Our journey had been a long one and unsuccessful trying to get pregnant. We decided to visit a fertility clinic near where we live, and it wasn't the experience we were looking for. I mentioned the idea of medical tourism and we found Panama Fertility. Some of the reasons we decided to choose Panama Fertility is the cost difference. We made a virtual appointment with the clinic, and we felt very comfortable with the doctor. He explained how the whole process could work, we could live in South Florida and just travel for the treatments. However we had been working from home, and decided to move to Panama. Loved the people, loved the country. And it's a much nicer lifestyle at a fraction of the price. Everybody in the clinic has been very friendly. And now we're looking forward to our success story.

Rebeca & Jonathan

After 11 years of marriage and three years without success, we knew something was wrong. Despite visiting specialists and undergoing tests, we never received a conclusive answer. Eventually, we gave up on the idea of becoming parents. However, during the pandemic, we decided to explore our options and discovered Panama Fertility. From the first visit, we received a clear plan and felt supported by Dr. Mario Vega, who was always accessible. The process was relaxed, and to our surprise, we conceived on the first try. The clinic's supportive atmosphere relieved all our stress. The level of professionalism and customer service is exceptional. We wholeheartedly recommend Panama Fertility.

What is the process of egg freezing at Panama Fertility?

At Panama Fertility, the egg-freezing process begins with ovarian stimulation, where fertility medications are administered to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple mature eggs. The progress of ovarian stimulation is monitored through ultrasounds and hormone level measurements. Once the eggs reach the desired stage, they are retrieved through a minimally invasive procedure. The eggs are then carefully frozen using advanced cryopreservation techniques for future use.

How long can eggs be frozen and stored at Panama Fertility?

Eggs can be frozen and stored at Panama Fertility for an extended period, typically up to 10 years or longer, following local regulations and the clinic's policies. The state-of-the-art cryopreservation facility ensures the eggs are stored and maintained optimally to preserve their viability.

What factors should I consider when deciding to freeze my eggs?

It's important to consider your age, as egg quality and quantity decline as you age. The younger you are when you freeze your eggs, the higher your chances of future success.
