Why more women are choosing to get their eggs freeze?
An answer to this question isn’t tough, but it’s a very thoughtful question. Why do women choose to get their eggs freeze? As all of us know, women are capable of giving birth but why they choose to get their eggs freeze. It is because:
Firstly, of career reasons,
Secondly, not mentally prepared,
Thirdly, need more time to find a suitable partner to prevent panic partnering, and
Lastly, to avoid future regret.
Eggs Freezing is being opted for by women because they want to tackle their ‘ticking biological clock’, be free of the pressure of finding a partner and focus on their careers, among other things.
In recent times, every third woman chooses to freeze their eggs because if they did not freeze their eggs, they may come to regret their decision of not opted for motherhood earlier, especially if they were later unable to conceive.
So egg freezing is not only about keeping the option of pursuing motherhood with the right partner open in the future, it is also about avoiding pursuing motherhood with the wrong partner in the present.
Globally, for every 100 IVF cycles that take place, only about 2 % of women freeze their eggs. While many international celebs have opted for it, IVF clinics in India, too, have been witnessing a rise in women choosing to freeze their eggs.
In the past, former Miss World Diana Hayden and Hollywood stars like Halsey, Rebel Wilson, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian, Emma Roberts, Rita Ora, and Paris Hilton have also opted for the procedure.
Actress Mona Singh is among the rising number of celebs who have, in recent times, opened up about their choice to freeze their eggs. Mona revealed why she underwent the procedure five years ago at the age of 34 – “I want to chill with my partner and travel the world with him. Even though I love kids, if you ask me now, I am not mentally prepared to have one. Later in life, I would definitely think about it.”
The numbers of women undergoing elective egg freezing across the Western world has increased rapidly over the past few years. Women suffering from cancer and other ailments that may impact their ability to conceive are also looking at egg freezing as a viable option. But there are some factors to be kept in mind while considering freezing eggs:
- Eggs should be frozen when you are young, but not too young. Eggs should be frozen ideally around the age of 37 years.
- Eggs can only be stored for ten years.
- It’s always best to have at least 10-12 eggs frozen to give a fair shot at conception.
- If you are thinking about freezing your eggs, find a clinic that has plenty of experience with the procedure.
- It’s worth noting that all eggs do not fertilize and form embryos and all embryos do not give pregnant. But eggs frozen at the age of 33 years will definitely give a better chance to pregnancy at 38 or 40 years so, most women who freeze their eggs are in the age bracket of 34 to 36 years.
In nutshell, the women freeze their eggs to avoid future regret, to hopefully enable themselves to become a mother at the right time, with the right partner, and be a good mother to their child. This is how one woman put up herself.
I suppose I think to myself, that’s the best way to be a mother, to be in a stable relationship and be financially secure and be able to provide for your child.
