Fertility preservation involves saving and protecting your reproductive potential, giving you the option to have biological children at a later date. Fertility preservation is one of the services we offer at MCRM Fertility. Infertility clinics have the technology and expertise to help you preserve your fertility options so that you can pursue parenthood should circumstances change.
Can Infertility Clinics Help With Fertility Preservation?
Infertility clinics can evaluate your situation and help you decide which fertility preservation method is most suitable. When you visit us at MCRM Fertility, we will explain all your options, discuss the risks and benefits of each, and work with you to develop a personalized fertility preservation plan. Here are some of the preservation services we offer:
- Egg (oocyte) cryopreservation: Egg cryopreservation involves retrieving and freezing a woman’s eggs. It starts with fertility medications to stimulate egg production, followed by a minor procedure under general anesthesia to retrieve the eggs. The eggs are then frozen and stored for later use.
- Sperm cryopreservation: Sperm cryopreservation involves collecting, freezing, and storing a man’s healthy sperm sample for future use.
- Embryo preservation: Embryo preservation is another option we offer at MCRM Fertility. It involves fertilizing eggs with sperm and then freezing and storing the resulting embryos. We pride ourselves in our advanced technology and safe processes that make embryo preservation a reliable option for many clients.
Situations Where Fertility Preservation May Be Necessary
Many situations may necessitate fertility preservation. Some common ones include:
- Cancer treatment: Radiation therapy or chemotherapy may have a detrimental effect on your reproductive system. Rather than risking your future fertility, especially if you don’t already have kids, you may consider preserving eggs or sperm before undergoing cancer treatment.
- Surgery: Certain surgeries may also cause permanent harm to your reproductive system. If you’re due for surgery that will affect your fertility, cryopreservation of eggs or sperm may be a good idea. If you’re not sure about the safety of the procedure, our fertility specialists are happy to advise.
- Military deployment: Joining the military comes with its own risks, including injuries that could make it difficult to conceive naturally. If you face deployment soon, fertility preservation can give you peace of mind knowing that you can still pursue parenthood in the future.
- Personal choices: Sometimes, you may not be ready to start a family yet. You may be building your career, and a kid may not fit into your lifestyle. You may also not have found a suitable partner to start a life with. To minimize the risks of age-related fertility decline, especially for women, egg preservation can provide a viable option for parenthood when the time is right.
