Due to changes in lifestyle, changing environment of studies and careers and late marriage, the age of conceiving is increasing. Many young women remain single due to not getting the right partner for a certain age.
Then when you get the right partner, when you get married, then the age of being able to conceive is almost gone. Fertility preservation techniques are proving effective “social age freezing” by these women in making their dream of getting older at a young age.
Being adopted rapidly
Due to the modern thinking of people in our society, this technology is being adopted rapidly. Apart from metro cities, egg freezing is also trending in small cities.
Dr. Bina Mukesh, Fertility, Clinical Director, Claudine Group of Hospitals, Gurgaon, explains that this technique is effective in preventing fertility problems in women in their old age.
Mature eggs are extracted
Mature eggs are extracted from the ovaries under social egg freezing. These are then freeze and kept for future use. Thus the frozen eggs are mixed with sperm in the laboratory when needed.
This technique becomes effective for women when a woman wants to have her own child from her partner when she is older. Sometimes these eggs are also used with sperm donor.
Helpful in fulfilling dreams
Many times when women want to become a mother after the age of 40, these same storing eggs help them in fulfilling their dream of becoming a mother.
Significantly, the importance of maintaining the fertility of women in a certain number of eggs is as much as their quality.
The mother is unable to do the job she wants
A baby born with egg quality is normal or abnormal. As females age, the DNA found in eggs decreases.
Many women, despite being the right age to become a mother, are unable to become mothers due to increasing stress or other problems in the family. It may be possible for these women to conceive even after advancing age with techniques like egg freezing.
In 2014, the Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society described egg freezing as an effective way to fulfill the dream of becoming an older mother.
Nothing less than a boon
This method of reducing fertility anxiety affects women who spend 30–40 years of height in corporate culture. This technique is no less than a boon for them to fulfill the desire of children after forty.
Age to get egg freeze
Generally, women should get their egg freeze between the ages of 32 and 36 years. If you are not able to do this, you can get your egg freeze till the age of 40.
With the help of this technique, a large number of eggs freeze in one or two cycles. These eggs can remain safe for at least five years in an IVF lab.
