Frequently asked questions & facts

We understand that you have many questions about the egg freezing procedure and how everything will take place in Mexico City. Here are some answers to your questions before going forward with a consultation.

What is the duration required for egg freezing in Mexico?
Only 2 weeks from start to finish.
How many eggs should I consider freezing?
Dr. Alejandro Castillo Peláez will personalize your egg freezing plan based on your AMH levels and antral follicle count. He'll recommend a specific number of eggs to freeze to align with your desires for future family planning, and discuss the expected number of cycles to achieve your objective.
How long can eggs stay frozen and remain viable?
Eggs maintain stability once vitrified, with no observed decline in viability over the short term. Utilizing frozen eggs within a decade of vitrification is ideal.
Will egg retrieval now affect my future egg supply?
Dr. Alejandro Castillo Peláez assures that retrieving eggs in a cycle doesn't reduce your overall egg reserve. It essentially saves eggs that would otherwise naturally be lost.
Is the egg freezing process painful?
While you may experience some fullness or bloating during the follicle growth phase, discomfort is minimal. The retrieval is performed under sedation for a pain-free experience.
What to expect for the post-egg retrieval recovery?
Post-retrieval, expect some bloating and temporary weight gain, subsiding within 10-14 days. Your menstrual cycle should normalize soon after, with any minor discomfort fading quickly.
Pregnancy risks immediately after egg retrieval?
There's a slight chance of pregnancy post-retrieval due to remaining eggs. Using contraception during this period may be needed to prevent unintended pregnancies.
Health of babies born from frozen eggs?
Early data suggests that babies born from vitrified eggs face similar health risks to those conceived naturally.
Are fertility treatments available to international patients?
Indeed, fertility treatments are readily accessible to international patients, with Dr. Castillo Peláez specializing in serving patients from around the globe.

What type of stimulation medication will be used?

Do fertility medications pose health risks?
