Your current life circumstances may not be ideal for you to start a family, you may not have found your ideal partner, you may be pursuing a career or you are not sure whether or not you will want children. Egg freezing means that you can postpone pregnancy but still have the knowledge that you have more healthy eggs available to you in the future.
If you are concerned about the fall in your egg reserve and egg quality with age, then egg freezing offers you the option to retain the current healthy status of your eggs for future use. When you decide to use the eggs at a later juncture, the likelihood of pregnancy will be nearly the same as at the time you chose to freeze your eggs.
Some diseases or their treatment, for example, cancers being treated by chemotherapy or radiotherapy, can destroy your eggs or adversely affect your fertility. In this situation, freezing your eggs offers you the peace of mind that you could still potentially have children at a later date.
If you are considering transitioning from female to male, hormone treatments and reconstructive operations can lead to either partial or complete fertility loss. Egg freezing before you embark on this journey offers you the option of using your own eggs to start a family in the future.
