Egg freezing is the process of having your eggs retrieved and frozen for later use. At our facilities in Cyprus, Cryos offers egg freezing to help women and couples prepare for the chance of future pregnancies at a time that better suits their needs.
Who is egg freezing relevant for?
Egg freezing is an opportunity for you to preserve your ability to have children later in life. There are different reasons for freezing your eggs. Maybe you are not ready for children just yet, or perhaps you are facing medical treatment that could reduce your egg quality and therefore want to retrieve and preserve your high-quality eggs before starting treatment. Choosing to have you eggs frozen for personal reasons is also called Social egg freezing, which you can read more about by following the link. Women’s prime reproductive years are in their 20’s and early 30’s, which is why egg freezing at Cryos is offered to women under 40. You can learn more about who egg freezing is relevant for here.

How to get started on freezing your eggs
The first step of egg freezing is the decision itself. Before you get started, take your time to read the information here on our website, where you can learn about the process of egg freezing and the cost of freezing your eggs and storing them at Cryos. If you have any questions or doubts, we would be happy to help you.
Once you are ready to get started, the complete process takes up to 8 weeks and requires you to visit Cryos Egg Bank in Nicosia (Cyprus) approximately 4-6 times. During these visits, we will monitor you closely via ultrasounds and bloodwork and finally retrieve your eggs as gentle and effectively as possible.
Why freeze your eggs and store them at Cryos?
After freezing your eggs, they can be stored for later use. According to the law in Cyprus, you can store your eggs for a maximum of 10 years. Cryos offers to store your eggs at our facility for a storage fee. Once your egg storage is set up, we will provide you with an online account that you can access here on our website. From there, you can easily renew your storage period or request delivery of the eggs to a Fertility Clinic of your choice once you are ready to go ahead and use them to obtain pregnancy.
Cryos is an international company with a focus on safety and transparency. We have been established for more than 30 years, and our skilled staff will guide you through every step of the process in a professional, yet personal, way.
