Social Egg Freezing: A Race Against The Biological Clock

Fertility preservation via egg freezing was originally proposed to women for oncology or medical reasons, but nowadays there is a big shift and “Social Egg Freezing” is available to every woman concerned about her fertility.

Human oocyte cryopreservation (egg freezing) is a process in which a woman's eggs (oocytes) are extracted, frozen and stored. In the future, the eggs can be thawed, fertilized, and transferred to the uterus as embryos.

Women today are increasingly delaying motherhood for a variety of reasons, such as wish to pursue the career, achieve educational goals, attain financial independence, wanting the freedom of exploring a relationship before starting a family or not finding the “Mr. Right”. Companies such as Apple and Facebook offer female employee’s egg freezing as one of their job perks.

It’s the age of the egg that matters the most infertility issues and hence induced interest in fertility preservation using egg freezing.

During egg freezing, young, unfertilized eggs are retrieved from the ovaries, then frozen and stored for later use. Whenever a pregnancy is desired, the frozen eggs are thawed and fertilized with sperms via a process called Intra-Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) and implanted into the uterus. Research suggests that a single pregnancy may be achieved on an average from about 10-15 frozen eggs.

“Social Egg Freezing” empowers women by giving them a form of insurance against later life infertility.

Nevertheless, we must all remember that fertility is precious and, since it does not last forever, it must be valued, preserved, and used in a timely manner.

  2. I was married at 32 and immediately tried to get pregnant. When I was unable to conceive I had blood tests for fertility and was told that I had an FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) of 54 and would not be able to have children. Even though the doctors knew that I had been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis since age 25, no one bothered to check my thyroid levels. my TSH was measured at .001. My Synthroid dosage was lowered. a friend advise me to contact a spiritualist who help with fertility with his medicine, i collected his contact and explain my situation to him he prepared for me a herbal medicine which i took as describe by him. became pregnant very quickly, I had a successful pregnancy. I have my baby august 2017. to get pregnant at age 35 with my 2nd child in september 2019, thank you sir , this is his email contact if you require his help babaka.wolf@gmail.com or Facebook at priest.babaka
