Can we freeze my eggs?

Egg freezing is one way of preserving your fertility so you can use them later on for more fertility treatment. You might want to consider freezing your eggs if:

  • You have a medical condition or need treatment for a medical condition that will affect your fertility, such as cancer (in this case NHS funding may be available depending on where you live).
  • You’re at risk of injury or death (for example, you’re a member of the Armed Forces who is being deployed to a war zone).
  • If you’re a female transitioning to a male, you may want to preserve your fertility before you start hormone therapy or have reconstructive surgery. Both treatments can lead to the partial or total loss of your fertility.
  • You don’t want to have leftover embryos after IVF treatment for ethical reasons.
