During ivf treatments fertility drugs are administered to heighten your egg production. Follicles produced in this manner are then developed in laboratory until they are large enough for the extraction of the eggs. These eggs need to be kept at a low temperature. Therefore they are stored in liquid nitrogen thereby maintaining their fertility for as long as required. This process is called egg freezing.
Certainly! You have the right to specify –
- The duration of storage.
- The use of eggs (your own treatment, donation, research etc)
- The instructions as to what to do with them if your incapable of taking decisions due to old age, mental illness or death.
- You may also withdraw consent at anytime before the eggs are used for treatment, research or training.
