Last Update: 04/25/2019

The main indication of egg vitrification is to postpone motherhood. However, there are other very important indications, such as preserving fertility in the following cases:

  • Women who are going to undergo aggressive treatment such as chemotherapy so that they can become mothers once they have overcome the disease.
  • Women who have received or will receive some type of surgery on the ovaries, as in the case of endometriosis for example.
  • Women who are going to have their ovaries removed due to a tumour.
