One of the key factors influencing a woman’s reproductive ability is age. As women age the number and quality of their eggs falls (the same is also true of men and their sperm!). By freezing eggs at a younger age, ideally under 34 years old, you preserve those eggs and prevent their natural decline as you get older. You may never end up needing or using your frozen eggs. In fact, when it comes time for you to have children we would recommend using more natural methods first. But many find that having eggs frozen removes some of the pressure that surrounds important life choices and in turn helps to make them more fertility aware. And it gives a potential alternative route to your family in the event that you find yourself struggling to conceive. In short, knowing that you have your eggs frozen may actually assist you in conceiving naturally.
Every month a woman recruits a number of follicles and eggs but only one or two grow to maturity and are released. The rest are lost. The purpose of the stimulation medications is to capture eggs that were going to be lost that month anyway. So we can reassure you that by stimulating your ovaries and freezing your eggs we are not compromising your future fertility
Women who, for whatever reason, want to defer starting their families until a time when age may become more of a factor in determining success can consider egg freezing.
We know that women in Ireland are starting their families at a later age, about 32. This unfortunately means that a higher proportion of women and couples will need assistance.
At Thérapie fertility we really want all women to be fertility aware. This means getting checked and learning what YOUR fertility potential is, earlier rather than later. This will allow you to make an informed choice about whether egg freezing may be a suitable avenue for you to take.
