No but if I wasn’t married by 30-32ish I would have looked into it for sure. Wishing you the best through this.

freezing eggs has a very low success rate unfortuanatluy, it was heavily pushed for over a decade but then once those ladies started trying to use their eggs and the true success stats started arriving they where shocked and they are actually starting to warn against it.

eggs dont survive freezing the way embryos do because the micro cystals from freezing badly damage the structure of the egg, in embryos that structure is reinforced.

to have a chance at success you really need to do many many rounds of banking and freezing as about half usually arrest at defrost, theres low fertilisation rates and then you have the normal statistic too (bare in mind in a normal fertile couple only about 1 in 12 eggs would be successful naturally, thats why with fresh cycles they aim for as many as possible).

I’ve started thinking about it. I’m coming up for 28 and nowhere near ready to have kids yet and don’t think I will be for quite a while. My mum had fertility issues in her mid twenties, which she was told could be genetic. So if I am still not ready for kids by the age of 30 then I will strongly consider getting my eggs frozen to buy me some extra time.

sept20 :  I recently read an article that said freezing ovarian tissue was the new better alternative to freezing eggs.  Ever heard of this?  (I don’t have a horse in the race because I think I’m about to be done having kids, but the topic is interesting to me, and I have friends who may be interested in extending their fertility)

pearlrose :  I haven’t heard of that before but it seems interesting, ill have to do some research and look it up. Although Im planning to freeze embryos myself I love learning about the new embryology techniques.

Nope and I got pregnant at 45 with my own eggs. Had a completely healthy baby boy.
