What is Involved in an Egg Freezing Cycle?
Your egg freezing cycle can be divided into 4 phases. These are
- Priming: involves using medication to ensure that your eggs are in a healthy environment and are all at the same stage of development when we stimulate them
- Stimulation: involves injecting medication that stimulates the ovaries to grow multiple eggs
- Egg Retrieval is a simple procedure that involves removing the mature eggs
- Egg Freezing is where the eggs are flash-frozen and stored
