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. Other factors include your personal and medical history and your future family planning goals. Consulting with a fertility specialist at Panama Fertility can help you make an informed decision based on your circumstances.
What are the potential risks or side effects of egg freezing?
Egg freezing is generally considered safe, but like any medical procedure, there are potential risks. These may include a small chance of complications during the egg retrieval procedure and possible damage to the eggs during the freezing and thawing. The fertility specialists at Panama Fertility will provide detailed information about the potential risks and side effects and address any concerns you may have.
