Should I Freeze My Eggs?

Heather is a 33 year woman getting married in five weeks.  Of course, since she's on the path to matrimony, there's a new question people are looking for her to answer.  Here are a few interesting quotes from her article:
  • "It comes as no surprise that our peers should ask us when we intend to start a family.  Isn't that the next natural step?  First comes love, then comes marriage, the comes...?"
  • "Without getting all women's lib on you, men are incredibly fortunate when it comes to procreation.  Aside from avoiding the obvious nine-month pregnancy and giving birth bit, men can procreate well beyond obtaining their senior status, making their sense of urgency less dire."
  • "Starting a family at 35 or older does raise fertility concerns, so wouldn't it be a viable option to freeze your family-to-be until you were mentally or financially prepared?"
