Fertility preservation is a great option for patients concerned about their future fertility. While it does not guarantee pregnancy, it does offer a plan to fall back on should natural conception be unsuccessful.
What is fertility preservation?
Fertility preservation is the cryopreservation (freezing) of human reproductive tissue to be used later for In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) therapies or intrauterine insemination (IUI). Using liquid nitrogen, human tissues such as semen, eggs, and embryos are frozen at temperatures exceeding 350 degrees below freezing. They are then stored in specially designed tanks until such time that the patient is ready to begin a family.
Carolinas Fertility Institute (CFI), is a nation-leading clinic in North and South Carolina that captures your current vitality and preserves it for the future. We offer elective egg preservation (oocyte cryopreservation) for patients interested in preventing age-related declines in fertility, as well as egg and sperm cryopreservation for oncology patients prior to chemotherapy.
Through our fertility preservation program, Ovest, we perform all necessary procedures at one of our three convenient office locations. This program is unlike preservation services offered by other clinics which typically involve off-site storage of your frozen eggs that are later shipped back for use.
Regardless of your reason for interest, cryopreservation and cryostorage are advances in the medical field that allow patients another opportunity at having a family.
