During a short interview with Dr. Rubina from MyNEWPhilly.com, SGF’s Dr. Isaac Sasson from our Chesterbrook, PA office goes behind the scenes of the IVF laboratory. He takes the opportunity to explain fertility testing prior to fertility treatment or egg freezing.

An egg freezing cycle is not unlike an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle for fertility treatment. Women who freeze eggs complete the in vitro, but pause the fertilization until later, either when they have a partner or donor sperm. The cycle consists of two parts: medications and the egg retrieval.
