Egg freezing is a great way for women to preserve their fertility for years to come.

Women freeze their eggs due to health issues

Women who have health issues, or who have a family history of fertility related health issues may opt to freeze their eggs as a sort of insurance policy against fertility issues. Sometimes a woman may be perfectly healthy at the present time, but she might not be ready to have a child. If this woman has a family history of health issues that might make pregnancy harder on her, or make it impossible for her to conceive on down the road, freezing her eggs might be a good option. Some women who have issues like PCOS or other egg-related issues might choose to go ahead and have their eggs frozen.

Women freeze their eggs due to age issues

It’s common knowledge that as women get older, their fertility begins to decrease, as do the number of viable eggs that they have in their bodies. This is why doctors sometimes recommend that women consider freezing their eggs between the ages of 30 and 35, since most women still have quite a few viable eggs during this time frame. The cutoff age for egg freezing is usually between 38 and 39, since by this time, a woman probably doesn’t have too many eggs left to freeze. If a woman is nearing the age of around 35 or 40 and isn’t at a point in her life where she would like to have a baby, it might be a viable option for her to consider freezing her eggs.

Women freeze their eggs due to social issues

Sometimes, a woman will be reaching the age where her fertility begins to decline, and she might not be ready to have a child. She might not have found a partner that she would like to have children with, or she might be focused on career or other life aspects, and simply not be ready to take that next step yet. If that is the case, egg freezing can be a viable option, since women who freeze their eggs have the option to use them later on when they are ready to become mothers.

Women freeze their eggs for peace of mind

One of the most common reasons that women freeze their eggs is just simply for the peace of mind that egg freezing provides. No matter what a woman’s particular situation may be, freezing her eggs can put her mind at ease about the prospect of becoming a mother. Even if a woman never uses the eggs that she freezes, she can consider them “money in the bank” when it comes to fertility, and she can rest assured knowing that those eggs will be ready and waiting whenever she is ready for them. All women who are in their mid to late thirties and are not ready to become parents yet should at least consider freezing their eggs and find out what all the options are that are available to them.
