RMA of Michigan offers egg freezing for women who are looking to preserve their fertility. There are a number of reasons why a woman may want to freeze her eggs. Women who have been given a cancer diagnosis may want the opportunity to freeze their eggs so that a biological family is a possibility in the future. Life saving treatment like chemotherapy and radiation can potentially have the side effect of leaving a woman infertile. RMA will expedite treatment for cancer patients so that it doesn’t delay cancer treatment.
RMA also offers sperm freezing for male cancer patients. Although, we cannot store the sperm long-term we can assist the patient in transferring the samples to a long-term storage facility.
Also, women who need to have surgery that might risk damaging her reproductive organs, have a family history of early menopause or autoimmune disorders may choose to freeze their eggs. Becoming even more common are younger women who are turning to egg freezing to try and ensure that they are able to have a family when the time is right. Women who are not ready to have children in their 20s or early 30s may want to freeze and store their eggs to preserve their fertility.
