I was just looking into the profile of the fertility center of Southern California and can’t find any reviews on it. So that’s why I’m creating this thread. Does someone like to share his/her experience with this clinic? I’m looking for egg freezing as I’m about to start chemotherapy. Would love to hear how this works.05/19/2020 at 8:51 am
Good morning Susanne,
I’m so sorry to hear that. I hope your cancer therapy is going well so far and that you’ll recover soon. Preserving fertility is a useful method to postpone motherhood due to circumstances that are beyond our control such as undergoing radiotherapy or chemotherapy in cancer treatment. This allows you to solely focus on your full recovery and to not to worry about not being able to become a mother in the future.
Concerning the steps, first of all, you will receive ovarian stimulation treatment in order for your follicle to adequately develop. As soon as they have reached the appropriate conditions, they will be extracted by means of egg retrieval procedure. Finally, the obtained eggs will be cryopreserved for an unlimited period of time without risking quality loss. Read about the whole process here: Preserving fertility in women with cancer.
Hope this helps you and wish you all the best.06/01/2020 at 10:07 am
