Generation Next Fertility offers elective fertility preservation program to assist women who wish to freeze eggs or embryos in order to have children later in life. Cryopreservation of eggs while in your early 30’s-40’s will allow you the opportunity to continue to live your current life and have good quality eggs available for once you are ready to start a family.
Reasons why women choose to freeze their eggs:
You may be a single female who is not quite ready to have a baby but would like the option of biological motherhood in the future. As women age the quantity and quality of the eggs diminish greatly so freezing your eggs could give you that opportunity.
You have a medical condition which may either shorten your ‘fertility life’ or which will prevent you from trying to conceive until treatment for that condition is complete, such as:
- Severe Endometriosis
- Recurrent ovarian cysts
- Any condition which may result in premature ovarian failure or the removal of your ovaries
- A history of early menopause in your family
Why women should freeze their eggs?
Unlike men, women are born with the egg supply that they will have for the rest of their lives, and you lose some every month once you begin ovulating at puberty. To many women it comes as a surprise that after the age of 35 there is a significant drop in egg quality and a reduction in the amount of the eggs that you have left. The women of today are establishing themselves in their 30’s and setting themselves up financially prior to starting a family. Being able to freeze your eggs will allow you to create a family at a time you believe is best for you rather than being rushed to create one due to racing against your biological clock.
First, you will set up an appointment to begin discussing whether egg freezing is right for you. You will then undergo diagnostic blood tests and ultrasound to get a better idea of the number of eggs within your ovaries so that our excellent physicians can help you make the best plan moving forward.
Generation Next will provide an individualized patient treatment protocol for any woman who desires to take control of her reproductive future and freeze her eggs.
