Many believe that Egg Freezing (oocyte vitrification) is as life changing for women today as the invention of the Birth Control Pill in the ‘60s. Now you can take active steps to increase your chances of having a genetically-related, healthy child at an older age through egg freezing. For the first time, women can take a proactive step to protect their future fertility.

SRM has frozen over 15,000 eggs, completed over 1,000 successful thaw cycles, and enabled over 500 babies to be born from frozen eggs.

 

WHO IS FREEZING THEIR EGGS?
• Women who want a baby someday, just not today
• Those who’ve experienced life changes that haven’t allowed them to have children
• Women building their career or completing their education
• Women who haven’t met their partner yet


The Process

Freezing your eggs is a simple process with minimal discomfort.
