The reason that so called social egg freezing has become such a hot topic is that as frustrating as it might be, age is one of the main factors we cannot beat when it comes to your fertility. When it comes to fertility, 40 is not the new 30. Your most fertile years are your 20s and early 30s. Data that is relied upon around the world shows that a woman’s chance of getting pregnant naturally each month decreases from the age of 22.
By the time you’re 36, your chance of conceiving naturally per month has decreased significantly - from 25 per cent to 15 per cent - and that’s if there are no other factors at play. The downward slope continues until, by age 45, the average natural fertility rate per month is approximately one per cent.
While Hollywood celebrities and some women’s magazines might be telling you a different story (hint - don’t believe everything you read), our experience shows that conceiving and giving birth using your own eggs after the age of 45 is extremely rare.
A factor that is discussed less often is the emotional benefit gained from proactively managing your fertility. Taking action to try to ensure your ability to get pregnant or have a biological child in the future can instil a sense of calm and remove some of the concern over declining fertility.
As one of our patients said: “In every sense, I am a lot calmer now. I know that I have done everything that I can”.
So if you believe children are part of your future or you’d just like to give yourself the option of trying, then freezing your eggs might be the right choice for you.
As well as the social challenges many women find themselves facing there are serious medical conditions which may lead a woman to need to freeze her eggs. These include but are not limited to impaired ovarian function and imminent chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment for cancer.
