Egg freezing is the process of freezing the egg cells (Ovocyte) obtained from the woman's ovary in order to have children in the future.

Women who postpone having a baby due to health, career, economy, responsibility and personal reasons can become parents at any time and without any legal procedures with the egg freezing process.

Who is Egg (Ovocyte) Freezing suitable for?

It is mostly recommended for women who will undergo surgery, undergo cancer treatment, have low egg reserve or are at risk of early menopause. Along with these;

  • Cancer patients receiving chemotherapy and radiotherapy
  • Those who have health problems that negatively affect fertility
  • For those who postpone having a baby due to education, career and personal goals
  • For those with reduced fertility while waiting for the right time to have a baby

  • How is Egg Freezing done?

    In the egg freezing process, hormone therapy is applied in the same way as in the IVF treatment. The treatment is started with the period of the patient, hormone injections are used and the number of oocytes to be obtained is increased. The process and follow-up of hormone needles is the same as in vitro fertilization treatment. In egg freezing, oocytes are collected vaginally under anesthesia. The oocytes detected under the microscope in the embryology laboratory are taken into special solutions and placed in special instruments called "incubators". Two hours after the collection of oocytes, the surrounding cells are cleaned and their quality and maturity grades are evaluated. Only quality and mature oocytes are frozen and stored in liquid nitrogen at -196 C. There is no restriction on the storage period.

    What is low ovarian reserve? Can women with egg laziness perform egg freezing?

    Every woman is born with a certain number of eggs, and during the reproductive age, this reserve decreases to a certain extent during each menstrual period. After the age of 35, the ovarian reserve and the chance of conceiving naturally decrease gradually.

    In addition to the ovarian reserve, which naturally decreases with age, the ovarian reserve of young women may decrease or the ovarian tissues may be damaged due to some medical reasons. Medical reasons that can cause egg laziness:
  • Family history of early menopause (in mother and sister),
  • Family history of breast cancer,
  • Presence of endometriosis,
  • Some genetic diseases: (Turner Syndrome, Fragile-X syndrome, Muscular dystrophy, BRCA-1 carrier),
  • Cigarette,
  • Alcohol use

  • Although the number of eggs of these women is low, their eggs are of high quality because they are young. When these eggs are frozen and stored, even if the woman's age advances, since the eggs are young, there is a higher chance of getting pregnant resulting in healthy babies in the in vitro fertilization treatments applied when the eggs are thawed.

    Patients thoughts

    We met one year ago with Dr. MEK. I have seen too many doctors before. But years later, he became both a doctor and a father to us. I thank God first and then our doctor. Thanks to him and his team, I had 2 babies. I believe that he is the best doctor in Northern Cyprus.

    Thank you very much, my dear doctor Mehmet and his valuable team, for giving hope to my despair. You gave me this joy at the age of 53. Many expectant mothers like me should not lose hope. I wish that many families who are longing for a baby will meet you and be happy.

    It was obvious from the approach of the staff before the treatment that the result would be positive. The sensitivity and knowledge of all staff made me feel good and my motivation increased. I had twin babies. Thank you to everyone who contributed.
