Oocyte freezing is another emerging technology. The oocyte, as opposed to the embryo, is quite a responsive to the cryopreservation process. This relates to the high-water content within the egg, which predisposes it to ice crystal damage. Lately, breakthroughs happen to be produced in the process, leading to improved survival during the time of thawing. Techniques involving vitrification (fast-freezing) which have revolutionized the success with egg freezing happen to be developed. It is anticipated that egg freezing will become a typical approach to preserve fertility in females not prepared to possess a family and, for the first time in human history, the biological clock can be stopped.
The indications for oocyte freezing are manifold. It provides chance to women undergoing cancer treatment to preserve fertility. Additionally, it would help the younger woman who does not anticipate motherhood soon and wishes to preserve her fertility. Finally, couples undergoing IVF could freeze extra eggs rather than embryos. When the couple decides their family is complete, it is much simpler emotionally to discard frozen eggs instead of frozen embryos.
