Egg Freezing Has Gone Mainstream

Check out this two minute clip on how more woman in their late 20's to early 40's are choosing to freeze their eggs.

A few interesting quotes from the piece:
  • "Bradshaw underwent a procedure to harvest and freeze her eggs, while continuing to search for Mr. Right...'I didn't want to give up that dream of having the kids and everything'."
  • "Fertility experts across the country report a surge in healthy women choosing to put their eggs on ice, hoping to preserve their fertility for the future.  Dr. Eric Widra with the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology credits the bump to significant advances in freezing technology."
  • Widra shares, "There are two primary ways that people freeze eggs. We've optimized both of these technologies to the point where experienced centers now see comparable success rates from eggs that were frozen from either method to those that are fertilized fresh."
Let me know what you think.
