A woman’s chances of conceiving naturally falls as she gets older and as the quality and number of eggs drops. This website has been created to help you learn about preserving your fertility and, in particular, freezing your eggs. Here, you can learn how the process works, what it costs and how it could help you plan for your future.
Why do some women freeze their eggs?
Women have one or two million follicles containing oocytes (eggs) at birth. They start their reproductive years with approximately five hundred thousand follicles, of which only around five hundred will release eggs during ovulation1. Because of this, the best time for women to have children is before their fertility begins to decline, which is in their early thirties. But that’s simply too soon for many women. Egg freezing offers an option to help you plan for the future.
