So then why do we tag a biological clock around them and weigh them down with the pressure of reproducing offsprings when they are not ready!
Scientific technology has now offered a solution to this problem.
Social egg freezing has now become an important “backup plan” or “fertility insurance” that allows young fertile women to take the time to find suitable long-term partners, complete their education, achieve financial stability or further their career goals without having to worry about their future fertility and chances of conception.
Egg freezing is a process which involves the ovarian stimulation of the ovaries, followed by transvaginal retrieval and subsequent freezing and preservation of a woman’s viable eggs/oocytes.
Social egg freezing is usually offered to women under 38 years of age who want to have a healthy, genetically related child(ren) at a later date. Social egg freezing can be followed by in vitro fertilization (IVF) and embryo transfer at a later date which offers two important benefits to women who anticipate becoming pregnant at an advanced age: it provides them with the possibility of becoming a parent with their own frozen–thawed eggs, and it reduces the risk of having children with chromosomal abnormalities associated with ovarian aneuploidy when conceiving at a later age. In addition, for women who do not have a partner or for women who wish to become single mothers later in life, egg freezing becomes an option.
