As Ireland’s leading fertility clinic, we offer the most successful egg freezing programme in Ireland. We were the first clinic in Ireland with a licence to use the open vitrification progress for freezing eggs, which is the most successful method available and delivers the best results possible.
Why freeze your eggs?
Having your family might not be a priority or part of your plan yet, but biology hasn’t changed with modern times. Fertility declines with age, and egg freezing can take some of the pressure off around important life choices and keep options available later. Having your fertility tested will let you know if this is something you should consider. If you are undergoing any medical treatments such as chemotherapy, egg freezing before your treatment will preserve your fertility should your treatment impact it.
If you have trouble conceiving when you begin trying for your family, having frozen eggs gives you reassurance as the quality of your eggs will have been preserved. This can give you a higher chance of conceiving years later. As we age, our eggs age with us, reducing in number and in quality. Frozen eggs have preserved quality: For example, if you are 32 years of age at the time of freezing, when you return to use them (e.g. in 6 years’ time at 38), the eggs will still be 32-year old eggs, of higher quality than your 38-year-old eggs.
