Following extraction, an embryologist will examine the eggs. Only the mature eggs will be frozen. Most clinics employ a flash-freezing method called vitrification, which freezes the eggs at -197 degrees Celsius in under one minute. Vitrification is the preferred freezing method due to its high “post-thaw” survival rate, exceeding 90%. In contrast, the old freezing method resulted in a survival rate of only about 60%.
Frozen eggs are stored in tanks filled with liquid nitrogen, known as Dewars. These tanks are kept in assisted reproduction centres.
What Happens After Egg Freezing?
When you are ready to conceive, the eggs will be thawed and fertilized by injecting them with sperm. Upon successful fertilization, the resulting embryos will be transferred to the uterus.
