Oocyte Cryopreservation or egg freezing is the process of extracting, freezing and storing of a woman's eggs. Most importantly, egg freezing allows a woman to halt the ticking of her biological clock and bank her eggs for future use.
Depending upon the protocol that your physician has assigned to you, will depend on how long the entire egg freezing process will take from start to finish. But, generally speaking, it takes 4-6 weeks to complete an egg freezing cycle.
Egg freezing is becoming more widespread as women learn they can preserve their fertility. Along with awareness comes the intimidating breakdown of how much it costs. Although it is costly, it is the way to go when choosing to delay parenthood.
