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. That’s why I am the face of #ExtendTheLimit, the campaign by fertility charity Progress Educational Trust (PET) to extend the 10-year storage limit for social egg freezing.

PET believes. » Extend your fertility with Egg Freezing. 28th September 2018 Dr. Pranay shah IVF Treament.

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.

List of related literature:

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.

  • This is such an informative video! I actually made an appointment today for a consult for egg freezing! Too bad I live in GA because I would have loved to come to your practice.

    FAQ (to save time, as I get so many of the same responses over and over):

    Q: Why are you posting this/who cares?

    A: YouTube has decided to include “warning labels” on certain videos telling people where they get their funding. I noticed they “accidentally” missed all of the mainstream media sources, so I am helping them to correct this. I’m sure it’s just an honest oversight by YouTube and not a deliberate attempt to manipulate opinions or smear sources regarded as “undesirable” by the establishment, so doubtless they will appreciate my efforts to assist them in promoting greater transparency. As should you!

    Q: Yeah, well Fox/Trump/Clinton/Obama/MSNBC/CNN/Whatever are [insert whatever objection, real or imagined]!

    A: Okay. I don’t support Trump, and I didn’t support Obama or Clinton. I oppose both the neoconservatives and the neoliberals. Whatever you’re saying about them isn’t going to upset me, though much of it will be factually inaccurate (but that’s okay, because there are good and REAL reasons to dislike all of the above, if you bothered to educate yourself rather than regurgitating talking points).

    Q: You’re wrong/shut up bitch!

    A: Not liking the truth doesn’t make it not the truth. If the truth angers you, perhaps it should. Perhaps you should spend more time examining why it angers you so much. Why does it make you so defensive when I point out that you’re getting your news from wealthy, powerful individuals and corporations with vested interests in controlling narratives?

    Q: Why aren’t you responding to my comments?

    A: I made this FAQ so that I wouldn’t have to. As people have continued regardless, and as I don’t have the time to deal with those who like to do endless back-and-forth exchanges, I’ve decided to simply refuse to respond. Rest assured that if you say something I actually want to respond to, I may still do it, and if you say something I like, I may still upvote it. But if I don’t do either, it’s not because I didn’t get a notification from YouTube that you commented. I saw. I just don’t care.

  • Ah yes, these dried up old career women thinking men are actually gonna want to start a family with them once they’re over 40 and stretched out like a roastie from all the partying they did in their 20s. They can thank feminism when they find out they’ll have to settle for raising cats instead of children ������

  • The sad thing in USA most fertility doctors are just milking you for the money. Try find an honest hospital/doctor. They will milk you for every dime kuz they know how much you want a baby and that you will spend the money. So becareful, when choosing a doctor. Most are cash grabbers, welcome to America where. Everything is for profit

  • This could be big! This means while global population declines this woman egg breakthrough could make woman who would be have Infertile eggs at age 45-80 now have fertile eggs. Man can freeze their sperm for a couple years and have a kid with some special girl who has a Fertile egg. So if I’m 45 and my wife’s 45 and none of us could have babies, no problem just unfreeze her ovaries and unfreeze my sperm do some surgical stuff and a couple months later ya got urself a baby when you probably couldn’t have one otherwise.

  • This is great �� I’m currently doing IVF (I have low AMH) & I’m now 33 we tried for 18 months, got pregnant naturally and had a miscarriage. We kept trying naturally and then decided to go to a fertility Dr here in Australia. We then found out my husbands shape of sperm (morphology) is very low so IVF is needed. Round 1 was successful in terms of embryos made however none of them have worked so we are onto round 2. We do not regret our decision and are hopeful for the future. It can be a long journey but I have faith it will be a fruitful one. Some people really do need medical assistance ����

  • I know this question isn’t about the video but I tend to get cramps long before my period is due and the closer my period gets the worse they get is there a reason this happens??


    Most people around the world do not believe there is herbal treatment for fertility issues both in male and female however there are alot of people taking advantage of ones predicament to enrich themselves. After several attempts to get pregnant failed including using fertility medication such as clomid and femara failed. I decided to opt for herbal treatment but all efforts from African herbal doctors failed until I realized they were all scam with similar excuses. After some weeks I came across an article about Dr purity and his herbal exploit here in USA in treating fertility issues I decided to give him a last try. Dr purity assured me I will get pregnant in maximum of 5weeks after using his herbal medicine. We acquired his herbal medicine out of desperation to get pregnant, lo and behold I became pregnant after 4 weeks. What amazed me the most was that the pregnancy test confirmed it’s a boy just as my husband has wanted. Believe it or not I have seen it all there is herbal cure for fertility issues both in male and female that is more potent than any medication and will save cost for IVF. If you have fertility issues I advise you opt for herbal cure by contacting Dr purity on [email protected], call or whatsapp +1-786-544-9214 you shall testify just like me. Believe it or not I have pass the information for awareness.

  • I had this test done at the age 30, mine was 19, doctor told me that I was born with little amount of eggs, then I did blood test again and it was 5, then doctor told me that I am perfectly normal. If you repeat this blood test again the numbers will be different. Stop doing all of this medical stuff and start going on dates and find the one!

  • Kids should be raised by their parents, not their “grandparents”. One of the biggest “complaints” I always had about my parents is how old they are. Dad was 39, mom 35 when I was born. We are almost two generations apart and grew up in very different worlds. I think if I was born 10-15 years earlier, we would be closer and have more similar interests and world views. There is also the issue of old grandparents. My grandparents also had my father when they were around 40, so they were already 80 and soon died, so I never had the chance to know them.

  • Can a 23year old do it or talk to someone to know everything for me before I pen because I don’t know that trope money all the time

  • Why would a woman want to have a baby in her 40s? Having a baby is a responsibility not a game! In 40s, no one will be healthy enough to handle such a tough job.

  • I’m 33…and I’m not married yet but I do know I’m fairly healthy….but I wonder if I should consider this….. Can you get pregnant naturally after the eggs are removed?

  • I have one & one is more than enough. 1 rich is batter then 5 poor kids. He wold be loaded by his 20s. Already 14year, & he has traveled 100+ time and 20+ countries. On other hand my sister with 4 kids (Doctor Husband) able to travel once after few years.

  • one of my angels has been wanting to do this I already sent her the podcast on it and now I’ll send her this too. Thanks Dr Crawford
