Oocyte cryopreservation programme in India can be done at a reduced cost. Oocyte cryopreservation is a rapidly advancing, breakthrough 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, fertilized, and transferred to the uterus as embryos. The egg-retrieval process for oocyte cryopreservation is the same as that for in vitro fertilization. This includes several weeks of hormone injections and hormonal contraception in order to stop ovulation, followed by more hormone injections to stimulate ovaries and ripen multiple eggs. When the eggs have matured, additional hormone is given and the eggs are removed with an ultrasound-guided needle through the vagina. The procedure is conducted under sedation. The eggs are immediately frozen. When the egg is frozen, the ice crystals that are formed can destroy the integrity of the cell. To prevent this, the egg must be dehydrated prior to freezing. The water is then replaced by a special cryoprotectant to inhibit the formation of ice crystals. Patients who would benefit from the cryopreservation of the unfertilized eggs fall into two major categories. The first are those unfortunate young people who are diagnosed with malignant diseases and who require either chemotherapy or radiation therapy which will ultimately destroy their supply of eggs and render them irreversible infertile. The second group is women who wish to preserve their eggs in order to preserve their fecundity for the future. These cryopreserved oocytes may then be used if the woman is unable to conceive because of an age related oocyte factor. Oocyte cryopreservation in India is conducted in cities like Mumbai which are well equipped with advanced medical technology. Also the hospitals charge less as compared to other countries.
