What is the postponed motherhood?

The ability to give birth to a healthy baby at any age became real due to the oocyte ultra fast freezing technology at a temperature of -196 Celsius. This method differs from classical freezing process, because the fluid inside the oocyte does not turn into a crystal, thus excluding harm to its living structure. Instead it is transferred immediately into «hibernating state», ensuring oocytes safe preservation after they are thawed many years later.

Preserving one’s biological material is a kind of insurance for the future. If a girl feels not ready to become a mother in a certain time period, or she has given birth to a first child and would like to postpone the birth of a second child, without depleting healthy oocytes ability, she can choose «Postponed motherhood» program to provide herself with her own healthy, young genetic material to a later date.

When should you сonsider using oocytes cryopreservation program?

1

«Postponed motherhood» is indicated to everyone who plans to have a baby after 30 years of age. Due to the fact that oocytes number and quality decrease with every year, especially after 30 years of age, the percentage of embryos containing chromosomal disorders and abnormalities is growing. For this reason, oocyte freezing is the most reliable way to give birth to a healthy baby actually at any age.

In case of a premature decrease in the number of oocytes, when it is impossible to plan on conceiving a baby within a given period, when close relatives went through an early menopause. Currently, the «Oocyte banking» term is used relating to the process when during several menstrual cycles oocytes are frozen in a cryobank, if it is not possible to fertilize them with the sperm of a husband or a donor.

Program stages overview:

Medical exam is to be conducted before initiating a program;

Ovarian stimulation (is conducted during 11-12 days under ultrasound monitoring control until the follicles reach 18-20 mm), followed by a prescribed drug to trigger final oocyte maturation;

Follicle puncture for oocyte retrieval is performed under intravenous anesthesia in comfortable conditions of a medical center;

Evaluation of oocytes quality, washing and getting them ready for cryopreservation;

Vitrification (freezing) of the obtained oocytes with their subsequent storage in liquid nitrogen at a temperature of -196 Celsius;

Thawing and fertilization. After a certain time, when a woman is ready for motherhood, well preserved oocytes are fertilized, embryos are cultured and preparations for transferring a healthy embryo into the uterine cavity are made.

The birth of a healthy child in each family that chooses our medical center is our top priority.
