I have come across contradictory information regarding egg freezing and COVID-19 and it’s impact on the eggs and overall IVF success.
How long after getting COVID-19 is it safe to proceed with an egg retrieval ? I have come across information indicating you can proceed as soon as you don’t have symptoms and other information saying a month is enough and information advising to wait 3 months as this is the time it takes to eggs to develop once recruited and it’s best to avoid exposure to COVID in this time?
Can you advise on this?
If you get COVID-19 and then have egg retrieval within 3 months does it affect the quality of the eggs or the outcome?
And then affect the IVF and pregnancy outcome?
COVID and Egg freezing IVF
No one knows for certain. However, discretion being the better part of valor, I would suggest you wait 3 months.
