assitida pregnancy reproduction techniques Egg Vitrification is a technique of assisted reproduction that will preserve fertility by freezing order to be fertilized in the future.

At present, more and more women choose to delay childbearing or by personal, work or reasons due to the current economic situation. For each year that a woman decides to delay the moment of being a mother, the chances of becoming pregnant are reduced to 5%, so it is important to inform and disseminate the different advances that exist today and that help achieve the desired pregnancy .

Egg vitrification is booming, and in recent months the demand has increased significantly. This technique allows to preserve the fertility of women through the freezing of eggs so that in the future, can be successfully fertilized. But keep in mind that vitrification is not safe for life since the extracted eggs may not have sufficient quality, the woman may have abnormalities, and also in advanced age pregnancy may include some risk.

On the other hand, when looking at pregnancy difficulties may also appear. About 15% of couples of childbearing age have difficulty achieving pregnancy. In these cases, they can use different techniques to fulfill his wish. One of the most requested is the artificial insemination. Another of the most popular treatments is in vitro fertilization (IVF). Through this technique, the woman's eggs are fertilized in the laboratory with sperm from her partner or from an anonymous donor and the embryos are then transferred to the uterus.

The success of these techniques depends on many factors, but one of the most important is the age of the mother. Below 35 years the rate of spontaneous pregnancy in a minor partner of 35 years is 20-25%. As for the chances of pregnancy with artificial insemination they are between 15% and 20%, and 50% with IVF; and from that age gradually decreases. For this reason, it is important to inform and raise awareness of all the circumstances that influence the likelihood of achieving pregnancy.
