3 Reasons to Consider Freezing Your Eggs

3 Reasons to Consider Freezing Your Eggs

Egg freezing or oocyte cryopreservation is a method of harvesting eggs from a woman’s ovaries and freezing them in subzero temperatures for later use. It gives a woman the option of having a biological child later in life using her own eggs.

Advances in cryopreservation technology have made it possible to store the eggs almost indefinitely without any increased risk of abnormalities when compared to eggs that have not been frozen.

Egg freezing as a method fertility preservation is becoming increasingly popular and given below are 3 reasons why a woman might choose to do this:

  1. Finding the right partner to start a raise start a family with: For most women,peak fertility occurs during their 20s. Fertility starts declining after the age of 30 and after the age of 35, the chances of getting pregnant are down to less than 30%. Egg freezing gives women more time to make perhaps what is the most important decision in their life without feeling pressured by the ticking of the biological clock.
  2. Attaining financial stability: Raising and educating a child is expensive and people in their 20s are working long hours trying to establish themselves in their careers. Its only in their 30s that most people feel financially secure enough to start a family, which is when fertility for most women is on the decline.
  3. Suffering with chronic illness: Women may choose to freeze their eggs before getting chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer or other diseases as these treatments could harm their fertility temporarily or cause premature menopause. Once fully cured, the women can then carry on with their plans to start a family of their own using the healthy eggs that were retrieved from their ovaries prior to cancer treatment.
