Fertility preservation techniques were initially developed for men and women prior to undergoing therapies for cancer treatment. Elective egg freezing has become very popular for women who would like to preserve their fertility to maximise their chance of pregnancy later in life.
If you would like more information, A/Professor Chan can discuss the latest and most appropriate options available to preserve your fertility and guide you through the process.
These may include:
- Embryo Cryopreservation
- Oocyte (Egg) Cryopreservation
- Ovarian Tissue Cryopreservation
- Sperm Cryopreservation

Elective Egg Freezing (Oocyte Vitrification)
For the large part of our younger lives, most of the education has focused on contraception and how not to fall pregnant. Elective Egg Freezing (Oocyte Vitrification) is becoming increasingly common. It continues to empower women by giving them choice to protect their fertility until they find the right partner, or feel it is the right time for them to conceive.
As with other fertility treatments, the success rates are related to the woman’s age. During your consultation, A/Professor Chan will discuss all the relevant pros and cons so you can make an informed decision regarding your fertility.
