Thanks to egg freezing, Drs. Nurit Winkler and Marc Kalan can help preserve a woman's fertility so she can have a family when she is ready.

What Is Egg Freezing?
During the process, viable eggs are harvested from the ovaries and frozen at sub-zero temperatures. When the patient is ready to have a child, the preserved ovum is thawed and used in an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle. Our fertility clinic serving Greater Los Angeles is glad to help you explore this option.

Helping Los Angeles-Area Patients Plan and Grow Their Families
"[Dr Kalan] was very sweet, responsive, knowledgeable, and caring about his work and his patients. If there was a problem he wanted to be thorough and would talk to you about any additional testing he recommended to be done. He spoke in ways that helped me understand things." Melie Sin
The Egg Freezing Process
It is typically recommended that patients freeze about 10-20 eggs per cycle. Because not every fertilized egg will result in an embryo, this helps you have a better chance of pregnancy during the IVF process.
Fresh vs. Frozen Eggs Success and Live Birth Rates
Since initially attempted in the 1980s, the methods and success rates of egg freezing have improved dramatically. That said, studies have found that the use of unfrozen eggs still yields higher live birth rates than frozen eggs. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), fresh ova have a live birth rate of 57.1 percent, while frozen ova have a live birth rate of 44.2 percent.
Techniques Continue to Improve
As studies continue to confirm the efficacy of egg freezing, the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) has declared that oocyte cryopreservation is no longer an experimental process. We can discuss if fresh or frozen eggs are better for you during a consultation at our offices in Bakersfield and Encino.

I came here and let me tell you dr. winkler is the best. I had infertility issues for years. I thought I wasn’t going to be able to have kids and thanks to her I conceived within months with injectable medication and IUI. I am very happy now I’m 17 weeks pregnant. The staff was also nice very understanding. I recommend this place if you’re trying to conceive, give them a tryView on Google
Dr. Kalan is the best doctor we have ever met. He’s a professional, ability, knowledgeable, friendly, patience and responsible doctor. We are so lucky to find him. We went and worked with serval IVF clinics before we found Dr. Kalan. I remembered one IVF that we only met that doctor first time. Then he disappeared for our next visits. The nurse, Ivanna and Joana are very nice, friendly and patient. They always replied my email very quickly. My husband and I very appreciate Dr. Kalan and his nurses give us help and support. We have very happy IVF journey with Dr. Kalan's clinic.View on Google
