The rhythms of modern society, professional affirmation and achievement of economic stability all lead women to postpone the maternity project. In Europe the average age of the first conception has approached 30 years. After age 35 however, fertility begins to rapidly decline.
The cryopreservation of oocytes offers women the possibility of having an oocyte reserve available to plan pregnancy at the time they consider suitable, as well as to maintain fertility even when anticancer therapies are necessary. Cryopreservation allows for preserving a certain number of oocytes, which can be used at a later time to start an assisted fertilisation procedure.
To increase the chances of survival of the ovules and the possibility of fertilising them after cryopreservation, the woman undergoes hormonal stimulation to produce a greater number of oocytes. The oocyte pickup that is carried out under sedation is completely painless.
