Why to preserve your fertility?

If you're not ready for a family: Not everyone feels ready for motherhood at the same time. You might want to preserve your fertility because you haven't met the right partner, you don't feel financially or emotionally ready, or you have other life plans you want to pursue. If you're having cancer treatment: If you're having certain types of cancer treatment, including chemotherapy or radiotherapy, you might want to consider freezing your eggs, sperm or embryos. This is because some of the drugs used in cancer treatment can cause infertility, especially in high doses. If you're a transgender person: If you're a male transitioning to a female or a female transitioning to a male, you may want to preserve your fertility before you start hormone therapy or have reconstructive surgery. Both treatments can lead to the partial or total loss of your fertility.

Why Women are embracing the New Later Motherhood?

Women who leave it late to embrace motherhood are often criticised for gambling with their fertility and risking their own and their baby's health. But now a leading academic says many women may delay getting pregnant. Professor Elizabeth Gregory says older mothers are financially secure and happy to put their careers on hold while they bring up baby and are more likely than younger first-time mothers to be in stable relationships. They also live longer. The average age of British women giving birth is stable at 29, but the numbers of women choosing to start families in their late thirties and early forties have risen sharply. In 2006 in England and Wales, more than 22,000 women over 40 had babies, of whom nearly 5,500 were giving birth for the first time. (The Guardian)

Do I need any tests before I can freeze eggs/embryos?

An ultrasound scan and blood tests (semen analysis of your partner if you chose embryo freezing) are requested before treatment. There is a theoretical risk of viral (HIV, Hepatitis B & C) cross-contamination between samples that are stored in liquid nitrogen. You (and your partner if you go for embryo freezing) will be screened for HIV and Hepatitis B & C.

What is the success rate of egg freezing?

Currently, women using their frozen eggs in treatment have a success rate of 18% (30% with frozen donor eggs), which offers no guarantee of achieving a successful pregnancy and birth with one round of egg freezing. 30% success rate if egg freezing is performed under 35 years of age. We have an ethical responsibility to be clear that egg freezing below the age of 35 offers women their best chance of creating their much longed-for family.
