Thoughts on Fertility

During my research, I’ve noticed something - Most women who make the decision to freeze their eggs, decide after the age of 35 or when their fertility has already diminished significantly. In other words, fertility is not a subject women really talk about until they realize they are losing it. When I look back, I realize I've never really thought about my fertility as a whole. I've thought about babies and family, but for some reason I never considered having those things could/would be in possible jeopardy. I always felt like I had time. How do we get women to talk about fertility before its decline?

First Visit to the Fertility Clinic

Today was my first visit to the USC Fertility Clinic…fertility clinic. I never imagined I'd be saying those words. I rolled up to a sweet parking space in front of the building (Thank you parking angels!) and headed to the 14th floor for my 8:40am appointment.

I'm Freezing My Eggs!

I want have a family one day. To be honest, I never imagined that I wouldn't have a family by now; I'm 35. Don't misunderstand me, I'm grateful for the path my life has taken. I'm just not where I thought I'd be, which isn't good or bad, it just IS.
