 Flash Frozen Eggs Have Better Survival Rate for Fertility Treatment

The birth of UK's first baby who has been born from a flash frozen egg is soon set to change the future of fertility treatment for women in UK. Flash frozen eggs are frozen in less than 60seconds. This technique would give women the chance to have a child even at 50-years of age with no greater chance of miscarriage or Down's syndrome than they had when they were 30-years old.

Thawing from 'vitrified' or flash frozen eggs the chances of a successful pregnancy increase significantly. Normal freezing techniques require about 2 hours and only about 65% of eggs survive the thawing process but with vitrification the egg survival rate rises to 95%. As many eggs survive the thawing process women generally require one cycle of treatment instead of having to undergo several treatment cycles.
