Long-term egg storage can help you become a mother when you’re ready
Women today are waiting longer to start a family, so egg freezing is growing in popularity. To help, The Fertility Center of Las Vegas (FCLV) offers long-term egg storage for women who have frozen their eggs. Before many women start this process, they have questions about it. Our Las Vegas fertility clinic explains frozen egg storage and answers common questions, like how long you can store eggs.
Learn how long you can store eggs
Our Las Vegas fertility clinic partners with Ovation® Fertility Storage Solutions to provide long-term egg storage. With the most advanced storage capabilities and state-of-the-art facilities, Ovation Storage can safely store frozen eggs for any length of time.
There isn’t a limit on how long you can store eggs. In fact, you can store them for as little as six months or less (short-term storage) or as long as 20 years or more (long-term storage). As a result, egg freezing is a great way to postpone motherhood for months or even decades.
How does long-term egg storage work?
The egg freezing process involves taking medications for ovarian stimulation and undergoing an outpatient egg retrieval procedure. From there, the embryologists at our Las Vegas fertility clinic use a flash-freezing method called vitrification to freeze your eggs. From there, we securely ship your frozen eggs to Ovation for long-term storage. Once at the facility, your materials will remain in secure storage.
When you’re ready to use your frozen eggs to conceive, Ovation’s helpful team will retrieve your eggs and send them to our IVF laboratory. The process of shipping the eggs is quick, efficient and safe. Once our Las Vegas fertility clinic receives your frozen eggs, our team will thaw and prepare them for fertilization as part of an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle.
