Fertility preservation procedures like egg or sperm freezing allow you to delay starting a family until the time is right for you, whether to start a career, travel, or due to being diagnosed with a medical condition that might affect fertility.
Female fertility preservation involves egg freezing. We have helped hundreds of women delay having a baby in order to pursue a career, travel, reach educational or personal goals, or simply wait for just the right partner to start a family with. The egg freezing process is very similar to in vitro fertilization (IVF), in that ovaries are stimulated to produce eggs, which are then retrieved, frozen and stored for later use.
Unless there is a clinical reason, egg freezing is often seen as an elective process and therefore isn't covered under some insurance policies. We offer exclusive elective egg freezing financing and discounts other practices do not.
Single women, heterosexual couples and same-sex female couples may decide to undergo in vitro fertilization, then freeze resulting embryos for use in the future when the time is right. In embryo freezing, a woman's eggs are harvested just like in egg freezing, but then are fertilized with either a partner or donor's sperm before freezing a number of the healthiest embryos for future use.
Male fertility preservation involves sperm freezing. Men may consider sperm freezing after being diagnosed with cancer or other illness that either treatment or medications might affect sperm quality or production.
Men who travel may want to consider sperm cryopreservation. For example, freezing before traveling to a region where Zika virus is present removes the possibility of infecting offspring. Or, if your treatment plan calls for IVF, freezing sperm will avoid having to change travel plans.
Becca's Success Story
I always knew I wanted to pursue a career before even thinking about having kids. When I heard about the egg freezing program at Morgan Fertility, I figured it couldn't hurt to investigate. I was happy to hear about the financing options and what the process actually entailed. It ended up being totally within my reach and it really gave me the peace of mind I wanted to do the things that are important to me now, before I have a family. - Becca R.
