Freezing eggs is the best way for women to preserve their fertility while considering age , life goal and career planning. Fertility is one of the essential rights of women, and yet age is the major factor in determining fertility. Eggs do not regenerate and proliferate and older women may have higher fetal chromosomal abnormalities mostly due to her aging oocytes.
The prime age of female fertility is between 25 to 35 years, and this is also the prime time of egg quality. Ovarian function gradually declines after 35 years of age, especially after 38 years of age, the function declines steeply. Therefore, many women face the dilemma of career and family. After working hard and finally being ready to conceive and raise the next generation, the ovarian function and egg quality may be too diminished to ensure a successful pregnancy.
Recently, the freezing of eggs and embryos has undergone a revolutionary development. Vitrification is an effective and highly successful freezing method. Vitrification improves the survival rate to 90% in thawing embryos and eggs. This freezing technology has been optimized and become a mature and reliable technology.
