How long can eggs be stored?
The law allows the storage of your eggs for any period up to 10 years. However,if you or your partner are prematurely infertile, or likely to become prematurely infertile, you may store eggs for up to 55 years.
The causes of premature infertility include chemotherapy treatment, or early menopause. Although consent may be given to store eggs for up to a maximum of 55 years, your medical practitioner will need to prove written certification that the medical criteria for premature infertility have been met. If the criteria have been met, the storage period will be extended by 10 years, from the date the criteria are met.
The storage period can then be extended by additional 10-year periods (up to a maximum of 55 years) at any time within each extended storage period if the criteria continue to be met.
