Elective “fertility preservation” is new, but egg freezing is not. Egg freezing for medical reasons has been around for decades. The first live birth resulting from a formerly cryopreserved egg occurred in 1986.

Until recently, egg freezing. Freezing your eggs is a way to extend your fertility by harvesting and banking eggs to use when you’re older. This relatively new type of assisted reproductive technology, known to doctors as.

Fertility in women gradually begins to degrees from age 35 and by 40 years there is only a very small chance that you will be able to conceive with your own eggs. So freezing the eggs in your late 30s or 40s makes no sense. Oocyte cryopreservation, or ‘egg freezing’, is the practice of preserving unfertilised oocytes (eggs) for later fertilisation, theoretically to extend a woman’s reproductive years. We say.

Pregnancy is a long-term commitment. A whole new journey starts after the little one arrives. It is this. Of the eggs you freeze, 90% or so will survive the thaw (when using vitrification, like we do at Extend Fertility). Of those that survive, a certain number will fertilize; that number varies based.

That’s an incredible opportunity to freeze eggs,” Mottla says. “It’s like an insurance policy. Those eggs may serve for her second or third pregnancy.” Although fertility is highly individualize. Single women looking to extend their fertility usually freeze eggs.

I froze embryos. “Freezing my eggs helped me to get to where I am now,” Mary says. I’m no longer navigating my. As illustrated, the success of IVF relies heavily on the age of the egg used.

This is why egg freezing works—it allows women to freeze their young, healthy eggs and preserve their egg quality, so they.

This is not the optimum clinical age at which to freeze, because women’s fertility is already in decline, so more cycles of egg retrieval may be necessary in order to retrieve sufficient eggs to give a reasonable chance of pregnancy in the future.

  • What moron would argue against the employee benefit of egg freezing. This is first and foremost a freedom for the woman that wants to advance her career and have children later. A right men are afforded by default. When statistics point to disporportionate child rearing responsibilities between sexes as the single hugest wage gap driver this is a massive field leveler.

  • I’ve just discovered your channel and I honestly don’t understand how you don’t have a million subscribers! Thank you for explaining everything in such simple way!

  • Am not against it but i just feel like something isn’t right and just imagining the fact that i am frozen before i was even a fetus is just haunting am sorry if i offend anyone but that my opinion on this

  • Many women who are just starting careers may be smart enough to start actively planning for retirement, but if they know that they want to someday be a mother, they should also start planning for their families.

    Female egg supply and its quality are subject to decline with advancing age. The risk of abnormalities of eggs from a woman in her 20s is about 20-30%. Eggs from a woman in her 40s may have a 60% risk of genetic defects.

    Unfortunately, most employers and health insurance plans don’t offer fertility benefits for women. There is also a lack of education and awareness about egg freezing that is a significant obstacle to widespread adoption of the procedure. One of the common myths surrounding this procedure is that egg freezing may use up all eggs of women in their 20s, which is not true.

    It’s important to note that regardless of freezing your eggs, the treatment is not a guarantee that you’ll have a successful pregnancy from the eggs later on. However, freezing eggs provides you with a kind of insurance policy in that it is a way of preserving fertility in case you’ve not determined yet whether and when you’re ready to start a family.

    More reproductive opportunities mean less pressure on finding your perfect match in your early twenties. This trend could also lead to parents who are better prepared for children financially, emotionally and mentally.

    We see an increase in fertility benefits among large companies where women are supported in their decision to enter into parenthood when the timing is right for them. As public awareness of fertility preservation increases, we also hope the popularity of egg freezing will rise.
