Freezing my eggs update… Thoughts on the next step of the process to freeze my eggs. After a week of birth control I had an appointment at the doctor’s office for more blood work and an ultra sound. Once that got the all clear I sat down with the nurse to learn what injections I’d start doing in a few days.
According to ivf Sydney, egg freezing means the following: Human oocyte cryopreservation, is a new technology in which a woman’s eggs (oocytes) are extracted, frozen and stored. Later, when she is ready to become pregnant, the eggs can be thawed, fertilised using IVF techniques, and transferred to the uterus as embryos.
She went through how to set up and get the injections ready – it’s a lot more complicated than I expected!! Watch the video for what I thought it was going to be versus what it actually was…
So I enlisted the help of my friend that’s a nurse practitioner for the first night. I’m thanking God for her big time.
I’ll share more on the details of the shots soon. This is just a quick update as I’m living it. Let me know if you have any tips or questions.
