Egg Freezing

Plan for the future, today.

Whether you’re interested in freezing your eggs in the near future or if you’d simply like to learn more about the process – we’re here to help. Schedule an egg freezing consultation to understand your fertility baseline and next steps. Our consultations are covered by most major insurance plans.

Is egg freezing right for you?

Start by asking yourself these three questions. Everyone is different. But, if the answer to any of these questions is over 35, egg freezing might be a good option for you. Want to take a step back and review the fertility basics

The Process

One egg freezing cycle takes around two weeks from the day you start your medication to your egg retrieval. Two or more cycles may be needed for enough eggs to be retrieved. Because everyone’s experience is unique, the specific days included below are averages.



Step 1

Egg Freezing Consultation

We invite you to schedule a virtual consultation, where together, we will review your medical history and discuss your family planning aspirations. This personalized conversation will provide valuable insights to help guide you on your journey towards achieving your family building goals.


Step 2

Personalized Plan

Once your results are returned, a certified reproductive endocrinologist will recommend a personalized plan. A few more tests may be recommended before beginning the stimulation process.

Your fertility care team will help you understand how to administer the at-home hormone injections involved in the stimulation process.

Step 3

Stimulation Process (Day 1-13)

You’ll be giving yourself small at-home hormone injections to stimulate your ovaries so that they can grow more eggs. Throughout this protocol - usually 10-14 days - you’ll come in for regular scans and blood tests to monitor your response to the medications and adjust your dosage as necessary.

When your hormones and follicles are at the right levels, a fertility specialist will provide you with a trigger injection, which allows your eggs to complete maturation and start the ovulation process. This happens about 36 hours before your egg retrieval.

Step 4

Egg Retrieval (Day 14)

You’ll be sedated for about 10-15 minutes while a physician collects your eggs. You may be a little sore afterward, but the majority of women resume normal activities the next day.

Your retrieved eggs will be evaluated and cryopreserved by an embryologist the same day.

I’ve heard you have to take hormone injections. What’s that all about?


With egg freezing, we are being opportunistic. We have you take the same hormone that is released by your brain to help you fully mature a whole batch of eggs, not just the one. You’ll administer hormone injections for about two weeks to help the batch of eggs mature. We’ll show you exactly how to take the injections. And, we monitor your progress throughout those two weeks, to make sure you’re responding to the medication correctly. We may adjust your dose, as needed. You can track your progress and response to the medications on our patient portal – so you can see everything the doctors are seeing, too. When your eggs are fully mature, you’ll take a “trigger shot” – one final hormone injection that gets your ovaries ready for the retrieval. You’ll take this 12 hours before the retrieval. We’re then ready to extract all of the fully mature eggs you were able to produce that month (and freeze them)!
