When Should I Freeze My Egg?

When to go for egg freezing

Women are progressively choosing to freeze and preserve their eggs for the future because the chance of a live birth decreases significantly when the eggs are extracted from an older woman. Therefore, your late twenties is the optimum age to get your eggs frozen. However, freezing eggs at 30 to 35 is also quite common and favours the chances of success with egg freezing.

We all know that women are born with a finite number of eggs or follicles that start decreasing in quality and quantity every year. Therefore, with the increasing age, women might witness the risk of miscarriages, difficulty in conceiving or birth defects. In view of the same, experts suggest the optimal age for a woman to enter Egg Freezing as 38 or below. 

Moreover, as per recent studies freezing the eggs between 25 and 30 is more beneficial.

With more and more couples trying to conceive at an older age, Fertility preservation is getting popular and common.

As per a survey, women generally have only 3,00,000 egg cells at the age of 25, and 

only 300-400 eggs are released through ovulation during the entire reproductive years. Hence, it is needless to say that the decline in the quantity and quality of the eggs accelerates in their late 30s.

Fertility starts declining from the age of 30 and significantly reduces after 40. So, the perfect age to freeze your eggs is in your late twenties. However, freezing eggs at 30-35 is very common in the present scenario.

At Medicover Fertility, we have come across many patients who have expressed their worries regarding pregnancy due to their increasing age as they turn 40 or over.

We all agree that being a part of such a society where not having children up to their late 30s or 40s, females are questioned by many, including her own family.

Here is where our role as Fertility Consultants comes in. However, we agree that with increasing age, fertility decreases. Still, the good news is that women who are 40 or above may try assisted reproductive technology like IVF to accomplish a pregnancy.
