Is special treatment required for egg vitrification?

By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 08/10/2018

Yes, in order to vitrify the eggs, it is necessary to extract them through follicular puncture. In addition, in order to obtain a greater number of eggs in this surgical intervention, the patient will follow a controlled ovarian stimulation treatment.

Therefore, the woman who is going to vitrify her eggs, either to preserve fertility, to undergo an IVF process or for egg donation, will have to go through these two processes: medical stimulation of ovulation and ovarian puncture.
