Egg Freezing Clinic in Singapore 

Ever wondered about egg freezing and whether you can do it in Singapore? Our doctors at The O&G Specialist Clinic are here to guide and support you. 

What is egg freezing?

Egg freezing is a procedure that enables women to retrieve, freeze and store their eggs. Once frozen, the eggs stop aging and can be warmed and fertilised when chosen. This procedure is especially useful and time-crucial as women’s egg quality and fertility declines with age. 

Is egg freezing right for me?

There are some compelling reasons for women to consider freezing their eggs such as if you’re undergoing or about to undergo medical treatments that may affect your fertility and/or reproductive organs. Cancer treatments that involve chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy, and if you are at higher risk of certain cancers and may need to remove your ovaries are some medical reasons to opt for egg freezing so that you have a chance to consider pregnancy or having a child at a future stage of your life. 

Some women are also not ready to have a child during the peak productive years and may want to have their eggs frozen. Elective or social egg freezing such as this also enables women to keep parenthood an open option at a later life stage even when their fertility has declined.

Egg freezing in Singapore

Currently egg freezing is allowed in Singapore for medical reasons only, such as for patients undergoing chemotherapy who may opt to freeze their eggs in case their treatment affects their fertility. Elective egg freezing in Singapore will be allowed from 2023.

Women who are considering egg freezing should consult a doctor or an egg freezing clinic regardless of their reason, to find out if this is a viable option for them.
