Freezing technique called frozen ovaries or ovarian cryopreservation is allowed to be stored indefinitely in, because it uses a storage temperature below -110 degrees Celsius. In such an extreme temperature, all forms of life would cease.
Under normal conditions, the ovaries in a woman’s body will stop producing eggs after entering menopause so it no longer possible to have a child. With cryopreservation, the frozen ovaries could be warmed again at any time and then returned to the woman’s body if it wanted to have kids.
“The same technique is also often used to preserve sperm or even embryos. The record longest in the world, frozen embryos implanted 30 years before returning to the womb,” said Dr. Budi Wiweko, SpOG in jupa the press launch of Yasmin Cipto Mangunkusumo Clinic as a training center tube baby Indonesia’s largest, in Salemba.
Besides useful for women who are too serious thinking about a career so no time to think about heredity, this technology is also used for patients with Turner syndrome or chromosomal abnormalities XO.
If the normal female chromosomes is XX, people with Turner syndrome have an X chromosome deficiency that impaired growth and reproductive systems. Patients with this syndrome is difficult to have children, because her eggs are easily damaged and while growing up will experience early menopause.
The problem can be overcome by growth hormone therapy, but the damage to the egg problem is still difficult to overcome. One option is a way to save her ovaries frozen, to be used again later if it wanted to have kids.
Other conditions that require storage techniques are cancer patients who must undergo chemotherapy or radiation. As is known, several types of cancer drugs that are highly aggressive spay-risk women by damaging the ovaries.
According to Dr. Budi, aged women who want to freeze her eggs there is no minimum limit. However, to the maximum limit, he suggested that be done before the age of 35 years because after passing the age of the egg quality and ovarian cancer will be reduced.
In Indonesia, the ovaries frozen storage service new on Yasmin at the Hospital Clinic Ciptomangunkusumo. Even the pricing is also yet to be determined, because until now still in development stage but rents storage space is estimated between $ 1-2 million / year.
