As more companies are offering egg freezing benefits, egg freezing is becoming more accessible. So why not do egg freezing?  Perhaps you’ve heard some concerns surrounding egg freezing. A lot of which is wrong.

Myth: Egg freezing is still experimental.
Truth: Sperm and embryo freezing and thawing have been successfully performed for decades. In 2013, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine declared that egg freezing should no longer be considered experimental. At PFC, we have proof that egg freezing works. We’ve had over 100 babies born from frozen eggs, including those from patient’s own eggs and donor eggs.
