Social Freezing

They say that men and women are equal, and why not? Generations by generations we have been seeing women excelling in various fields and proving us all that they are no less than men; or rather are even stronger than men!

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.
