This article from CNN is discussing the American Society of Reproductive Medicine decision to remove the "experimental" label from freezing eggs for fertility. While most of you will have hopefully have some frozen embryos versus eggs, I thought that you might find this interesting:
Overall, frozen (or vitrified) eggs had fertilization rates between 71 and 79%, implantation rates between 17 and 41% and clinical pregnancy rates (positive pregnancy tests) between 36 and 61%.
The data also showed no increase in birth defects, developmental disorders or chromosomal abnormalities when in vitro fertilization cycles were conducted with frozen eggs, leading the society to declare the technique effective and safe.
What do you think about their decision?
