Egg Freezing is also known as Oocyte cryopreservation in which a woman’s eggs (oocytes) are extracted, frozen and stored. Later, when she is ready to become pregnant, the eggs can be thawed, fertilized, and transferred to the uterus as embryos.
Every woman has some dreams to achieve. She wishes to get advanced degrees, pursue a successful career, follow her hobbies and live more. With so many opportunities, more and more women are choosing to start their families later than more. But by waiting longer, most women are unable to have healthy and successful pregnancies later in life. As you know, it is an established fact that a women’s fertility decreases with the increase in age. By 40, a woman only has a five percent chance of becoming pregnant naturally because of the low quality and quality of eggs.
Benefits of Egg Freezing
Egg freezing allows women to lock their own eggs and then start the family at later stage. With egg freezing, a woman can gather eggs retrieved at a younger age and then preserve her eggs. When she is ready to get pregnant, she can use her preserved younger eggs to increase her chances of success. So the pressure of “biological clock” is not something she will have to worry about.
Significance of the Egg
Age is a major factor in women’s fertility particularly in relation to the quality of their eggs. The level of quality begins to decline after the age of 35 and after the age of 42 achieving a successful pregnancy becomes difficult. According to doctors, ideally, women should consider freezing their eggs before the age of 30, so that they have the best chance of succeeding with treatment using those frozen eggs in the future. Several researchers have found the women who use eggs donated by younger women can achieve same pregnancy success rates as women in their 20s. So, Egg Freezing provides a chance to women to be their own donors by preserving them using cryopreservation technology. The stored eggs increase your chances of having a successful pregnancy later in life.
