The reproductive endocrinologists at our Louisiana fertility center recommend a proactive approach to family-building, which can include long-term storage of frozen reproductive material.

Find out if long-term storage of frozen reproductive material is the right choice for you

There are a number of reasons why you may want to delay starting a family.

  • Career or education. You might be focusing on your career or education and want more time before you shift your focus towards starting a family.
  • Finding the right partner. If you’re still looking for the right partner to have children with, it can be beneficial to consider long-term storage of frozen reproductive material.
  • Other life circumstances. A desire to travel or accomplish other life goals might inspire you to hold off on starting a family.

Women and men wanting to postpone parenthood should keep in mind that fertility decreases with age. However, freezing eggs, sperm or embryos, and utilizing long-term storage can help preserve their ability to have children in the future. For women, egg quality and quantity peak in their 20s and begin to decline in their 30s. The physicians at our Louisiana fertility center recommend freezing eggs before the age of 35.

Long-term storage of frozen reproductive material can be an effective fertility preservation method for those wanting to postpone parenthood, or for individuals preparing to undergo medical treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation, that could damage fertility.

Fertility Answers can facilitate temporary and long-term storage for reproductive material

We facilitate temporary storage for reproductive material that is going to be used for IVF cycles. Typically, temporary storage is designed for reproductive material that will be stored for six months or less. During this time, the reproductive material is stored in an advanced Ovation Fertility lab in cryotanks that are protected by backup generators. Additionally, trained embryologists carefully monitor all reproductive material. Ovation Fertility is an industry leader that utilizes leading-edge equipment and purpose-built facilities for freezing and storage.

If you do not plan to use your reproductive material within six months, long-term storage of frozen reproductive material is the best option. In this case, your reproductive material will be transferred into long-term storage at an Ovation Fertility facility where it will receive 24-hour monitoring.

The expert team at our Louisiana fertility center is committed to helping you preserve your fertility and will support you every step of the way.
