As Ireland’s leading fertility clinic, we are able to offer Egg Freezing services with the best success rates in Ireland. Egg freezing is one of the fastest growing fertility treatments, and Waterstone Clinic is at the forefront of this technology. We are the only clinic in Ireland with a licence to use open freezing for eggs, which is the most successful method available, in order to deliver the best results possible.
Why freeze your eggs?
There are two main reasons why preserving your fertility may be a good option:
- To offset any concerns about age-related fertility issues, and the decline of fertility (sometimes called “social egg freezing”)
- To preserve fertility ahead of medical treatments that may affect fertility, such as chemotherapy (sometimes called “medical egg freezing”)
For women wishing to preserve their fertility and freeze eggs for “social” reasons, egg freezing offers a route whereby if you do not wish to start your family now, but think you might in future, you can preserve your current fertility and give yourself a higher chance at success when you are ready. For example: if you are 32 years of age and freeze your eggs for 6 years, when you come back to use your eggs at age 38, you will be using 32-year old eggs, which will be of higher quality than your 38 year old eggs, as those eggs will have been frozen and not aged.
