By freezing your eggs with Beacon CARE Fertility you can preserve your fertility for the future, giving you the flexibility you need to wait for the right time
What is EGGsafe?
EGGsafe is exclusive to CARE. It has been designed to make egg freezing simpler and we believe it could make it more effective. With EGGsafe we aim to maximise your chances of a successful future pregnancy by freezing a total of 20 eggs gathered over up to four egg collections, which can be spread over several months. The whole EGGsafe package includes all egg collections, preparation and freezing of your eggs, and storage.
When should I freeze my eggs?
You should ideally freeze your eggs before you’re 36. Around 36 the quality of your eggs will begin to decline. Poor egg quality can lead to problems conceiving, miscarriage or genetic conditions so by freezing your eggs when you’re younger, you have the best possible chance of starting or growing your family.
Is EGGsafe suitable for me?
To have EGGsafe you should:
- Be 36 or under
- Have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 35 or less
- Have an Antral Follicle Count (AFC) of over 14
By meeting these criteria, we’ll be able to offer you EGGsafe knowing that you have a realistic chance of producing enough eggs for storage.
What is involved?
The egg freezing process can be split into four stages. You begin by taking medication which encourages your ovaries to produce eggs and during this time you’ll make a few short visits to the clinic to monitor your response. Then we’ll collect your eggs in a short procedure under mild sedation or local anaesthetic. It only takes about half an hour, so it’s easy to fit around a busy schedule. Once we have collected your eggs we will then freeze and safely store them.
