The desire to have a baby can arise at any age but for women, this time is limited as their egg reserves get depleted with age. The advancing age of a female is the greatest limiting factor that significantly decreases the chances of conception. Egg freezing is an option for such women to secure their motherhood even after their ovarian reserves are depleted.
Pause your biological clock
The most dominant difference between male and female fertility is that after a certain age, a woman’s fertility starts to decline, due to the loss of the limited egg reserves. Owing to this limitation, women have to start planning their family before a specific age i.e. before their biological clock starts ticking. Egg freezing gives you the power to take control of your fertility. With changing times, the role of women in society has also changed. Women, nowadays, want to be independent and focus on their career just like their male counterparts. Some don’t want to get married or have a child until they are prepared for taking such responsibilities or unless they find the right partner. Egg freezing is a solution that helps such women.
The procedure is quite safe and, in fact, thousands of frozen eggs are being thawed to be used in IVF procedures to raise healthy babies. Egg freezing is a ray of hope for women who do not wish to conceive during their most fertile years owing to some professional or personal reasons.
Why should women consider egg freezing?
As mentioned earlier, egg freezing gives you power over your biological clock. Considering the amount of stress and strain that women are exposed to nowadays, the 30's have become the new 40's for women. This is clearly evident from the fact that many women find it difficult to conceive even in their 30's. Recent research suggests that a woman’s ability to conceive naturally reduces by 22 per cent with every passing year.
Egg freezing helps to secure your Fertility and ensures that you are able to conceive a child whenever you are ready, irrespective of whether you are in your 30's and 40's or even 50's and 60's. It is very important to note that once women’s fertility starts to decline, i.e. after you cross 30 to 35 years of age, decreased AMH and egg reserves make it difficult to store your eggs and you don’t have any option left other than donor egg IVF. In order to avoid such a scenario, it is very important to preserve your eggs while you are still young.
