Thanks to the development of quick freezing of human oocytes, numerous programmes have achieved IVF success rates comparable to those attained with fresh eggs and thawed frozen embryos. Egg freezing (EF) technology advancements over the previous ten years have offered women more control over their chances of getting pregnant. The option for healthy women to cryopreserve their oocytes to avoid future infertility has grown in favour recently. But women often cryopreserve their oocytes in their late thirties, which is undesirable from a therapeutic perspective because the quantity and quality of the oocytes have already greatly decreased and there are therefore less odds of successfully conceiving a child. Egg freezing is now gaining regulatory and professional acceptance as a safe and efficient method for women who want to avoid throwing away extra embryos, who are undergoing treatments that could endanger their fertility, or who want to store their eggs for use when they are later ready to start a family. The applications and logic of egg freezing are the main topics of this article.
