Vitrification is one way to freeze an egg, which is also the most common method aside from slow-freezing it. A woman would be injected a hormone for this process, and it is known for those who are doing IVF or in-vitro fertilization.

They won't have to worry about infertility in the future should the time comes that they finally want to have a child and raise a family.
