Preservation of Fertility

What does Preservation of Fertility involve?

- You want to be a mother -that you know for sure- but maybe it’s not the right time or you don’t feel ready yet. If you’re worried that the right time is years away and that your biological clock is ticking, don’t worry. Science makes it possible for you to preserve and keep your young eggs under the optimal conditions until the moment you decide you’re ready to become a mom.

- Factors such as age, genetics, lifestyle habits or medical conditions can lead to a considerable decline in female fertility.

- Now, thanks to the advanced technique of cryopreservation, science makes it possible for us to preserve our fertility and press pause on the clock so that the passing of time doesn’t work against us.
