Ovarian Tissue Cryopreservation

What is Ovarian Tissue Cryopreservation?

This method of preserving fertility is a relatively new procedure. It is offered as being experimental at this stage. This procedure though holds a promising future and will hopefully be classified as standard procedure in the near future. Around 100 children have been born so far by this procedure.. This procedure involves removing a portion or whole of ovary and dissecting out the outermost part of ovary known as ovarian cortex.

Ovarian cortex is sliced into small pieces and frozen by either slow freezing method or by rapid freezing method known as vitrification. Once a woman has completed her cancer treatment and her oncologist feels safe for her to plan a pregnancy then this tissue can be replaced back into woman's pelvic area with the aim of achieving pregnancy either spontaneously or through IVF.
