Egg Freezing

Freeze your eggs today for the family you want to build tomorrow

Cryo-vitrification, or “egg freezing” has revolutionized women’s ability to have children later in life. The flash-freezing technique allows unfertilized female eggs to be frozen quickly enough without damage to the cell. This allows us to freeze and later thaw the eggs for use in IVF cycles. We are very proud to be on the forefront of being able to offer women new options in fertility preservation!

Why Freeze Your Eggs?

Many women are delaying pregnancy until their late thirties and early forties.  Cryo-vitrification gives women the chance to freeze their eggs while younger, preserve their fertility, and reduce the chances of miscarriage and birth defects associated with “egg age.”

Is Egg Freezing An Option For Me?

Besides women wanting to preserve the ability to have biological children later in life, freezing eggs is a great option for patients who may be soon undergoing radiation therapy, chemo, or surgery. This is because they can all cause infertility by destroying a woman’s eggs. Depending on the type treatment, egg freezing may be an option that gives a woman facing cancer the opportunity to preserve her fertility before she undergoes therapy.

They Always Explained The Process And Never Made Me Feel Like A Number.

Jenny

I always felt like, and truly was, in the best hands. Thank you to everyone at IHR for what you've helped us have in our lives - a lovely little boy whom we are obsessed with.

Sneha

Dr. Cohen and his staff were a complete blessing to our family. We just welcomed our identical twin girls this past month, and we owe it all to Dr. Cohen and the staff at IHR.

Sara

After being devastated from 2 miscarriages at a previous clinic I switched to Dr. TK. I became pregnant on my first round of IVF with him and have 6 frozen embryos.

KENDR

I am so glad my OB doctor recommended IHR to anyone with infertility issues or concerns.

Bonnie

At IHR, the nurses and ultrasounds techs and lab techs all knew me by name... I just felt like everyone there was really rooting for me.

Laura

After more than two years of trying without success, we pursued fertility treatment with Dr. Cohen.

Donna

I'm writing this review as my infant daughter naps nearby, which would not have been possible without Dr. Tur-Kaspa and the team at IHR.

JBH

I immediately felt like he was addressing ME and MY needs, as opposed to having a protocol that may have worked for the massess.

Kara

From the very beginning, we felt strongly supported and received the very best personalized care.

Lynnae

It can be overwhelming but I never felt any discomfort from any procedure I had done there and I knew each was getting us closer to our goal of becoming parents.

Liz

After having no luck on our own, a friend highly recommended that we go to IHR. I am happy to say that I am currently pregnant with my first child! I do not have enough kind words to say. Everyone at IHR was wonderful.
