DALLAS, Texas, May 23, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Women delaying childbearing or requiring fertility preservation prior to undergoing treatment now have an option with the launch of oocyte cryopreservation at Fertility Specialists of Texas. Now there is an option - egg freezing - that enables women to have eggs (also known as oocytes) aspirated before undergoing cancer treatment, and frozen for later use. The center recently received approval for egg freezing from Western Institutional Review Board, which provides reviews for more than 100 academic centers and hospitals, as well as for individual researchers.

Human egg freezing or oocyte cryopreservation is a novel technique intended to preserve a woman's eggs for later use in life. Eggs are extracted from the ovary, frozen and stored at very low temperatures in a state of suspended animation until the woman is ready to become pregnant.

While men have always had the option of freezing sperm, this has not held true for freezing eggs. Dr. Goldstein of Fertility Specialists of Texas notes, "Egg freezing can expand a woman's option of preserving her eggs while they are young." Often times, women are not aware of the effect of age on fertility and this technology allows one to suspend the biologic clock by freezing a woman's own eggs during their peak reproductive years and thawing them in the future as needed.

"We have developed a comprehensive team approach using cutting edge technology at our center," added Dr. Goldstein. Our staff is very dedicated and invested in patient care and I look forward to helping couples in North Texas make their dreams come true."
