Fertility Preservation

Providing you with options to
preserve your fertility ready to start
a family later in life.

INTRODUCTION
At IVF London, we offer egg, sperm and embryo freezing (known as Cryopreservation) for individuals and couples as a method of successfully preserving their fertility so that they can still start a family later on in life.
For Women
Women may want to freeze their eggs for medical reasons, e.g. they have been diagnosed with cancer or another serious illness, are about to undergo medical treatment or perhaps because they are at risk of early menopause. All these circumstances are likely to affect their ovaries which can prevent them from producing eggs in the future.

Single women or women wishing to delay childbearing due to career/social reasons may decide that they want to preserve their fertility at an optimum time in their reproductive life, in preparation for treatment later on. If freezing for social reasons it is advisable to freeze your eggs whilst you are younger in age as the quality and quantity of your eggs declines with age.

For Men
Men can choose to freeze their sperm for medical reasons, e.g. they have been diagnosed with cancer or another serious illness which is likely to impact their reproductive organs and can prevent them from producing healthy sperm in the future.

Others may wish to consider freezing their sperm if they are about to undergo a vasectomy procedure and are not sure if they may change their mind in future, if they are about to deploy for army service and are concerned about any likelihood of death, or they have been recently diagnosed with a low or a deteriorating quality of sperm and would like to preserve their fertility at this current time.

For Couples
Couples who have recently undergone a cycle of IVF may have good quality embryos spare from their treatment cycle which they can choose to preserve to add a sibling to their family.
