Elective Fertility Preservation in Long Island

NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York offers elective egg preservation for women who are not quite ready to get pregnant through a standardized treatment called cryopreservation.



The process of cryopreservation grants women the choice to harvest their unfertilized eggs and freeze those very same eggs for safe preservation. This allows for the opportunity to have a child in the future when the time is just right. The procedure can be used for any reason a woman may find fit, however, it’s commonly utilized as a backup in case natural conception fails. Cryopreservation is suitable for any woman who’s contemplating having a child but is not ready or able to now..


Why You Should Consider Fertility Preservation

Any woman around the age of 35+ is a suitable candidate for elective fertility preservation. A woman is born with the total natural amount of eggs she will ever have for her entire life. With this in mind, eggs are lost throughout her life. This natural process significantly reduces her reserve quantity with age. A woman’s biological clock also ages just as she does, and her fertility declines at the same time. Fertility preservation is an excellent precautionary measure in the event of conditional abnormalities. Considering fertility preservation with a trusted reproductive specialist at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York is a wise choice for women who experience or are aware of the following:

  • Side Effects of Natural Aging (Decline in Fertility)
  • Premature Menopause
  • Mandatory Hysterectomy
  • Cancer & Affiliated Treatments
  • Surgery on ovaries
  • Endometriosis
  • Delayed childbearing (financial, partner)
