When do you choose to vitrify eggs before IVF?

Esther Marbán, fertility specialist at the Tambre clinic in Madrid, explains when egg vitrification is indicated before IVF treatment:

Well, according to Clinica Tambre statement, I can tell you that the majority of patients that decide to come to our clinic to do egg freezing is because of social reasons. So, many patients prefer to postpone their wish of becoming mother for some years and they prefer to freeze their eggs because they know that the result will be much better. Of course, some other patients may decide or may need to do that treatment because they are going to undergo maybe treatments that will be toxic for the ovaries and, in the end, they know that it can also affect the future fertility, so because of that they prefer to also freeze their eggs. But I would say that almost 90 percent of our patients decide to do it because of social problems.
