What is Egg Freezing? 

Egg freezing, also known as mature oocyte cryopreservation, is the medical process of harvesting eggs from one’s ovaries and freezing them until the female is ready for pregnancy.

Egg freezing is an empowering tool for females in more ways than one.

Delay age of pregnancy

Breaking age-old societal norms, the modern female is taking charge of their own lives and become financially independent. For many of them, this would mean putting off marriage and family life for a later time. In such cases, egg freezing, when performed in their late 20s or early 30s, helps to conserve their egg quality and can be used up to 10 years later when they are ready. In any case, the choice to have a child and grow ones family should be their own decision and not a dictated practice.

Cancer patients

It is advised in cases where a female is diagnosed with cancer at a younger age and has to undergo severe therapies such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy which reduces fertility. These can be cancers of the reproductive organs or those in the abdominal area which can deplete ovarian reserves or act as a barrier to pregnancy. Here, egg freezing done before the therapy starts enable them to have biological child later – on their own or even using a surrogate.
