Taiwan's Future Moms Defy Time by Freezing Eggs

An article discussing how future moms defy time by freezing their eggs.   Here are few quotes I found interesting:

"Women who wish to preserve their eggs are recommended to use the service as young as possible or at least before the age of 38 so that the eggs frozen are at the best and most fertile." 
  • "A fertility clinic in Hsinchu in northern Taiwan said the number of clients coming in for egg freezing has increased 150% to 150 in the first six months of this year."
  • "The cost of the service is around NT$110,000 (US $3,367)."
  • "Most of its clients are financially stable and in their late thirties.  Some clients, however, have been as young as 23."
