Every woman is born with a finite number of eggs.
Over time, however, these eggs lose their ability to function properly.
The resulting decline in reproductive ability can make it difficult
or impossible for a woman to get pregnant at the point in her life
when she feels ready to start a family.
Freezing healthy eggs and storing them for future fertilization
and implantation is one solution. However, with conventional freezing
technology, the process is inefficient in terms of egg survival
and pregnancy rate.
To improve the efficiency of egg freezing, the CHA team has developed
an innovative technique of flash freezing human eggs. This technique,
called vitrification, is currently available at our Center.
Although it is a new process, CHA's vitrification technique has
demonstrated superior results with successful pregnancy rates far
above that of the conventional method of slow freezing.
