Egg Freezing

New statistics show that egg freezing is the fastest growing fertility treatment. We speak to Giles Palmer, Senior Embryologist and Business and Quality Manager at the LWC Cardiff to understand why egg freezing has increased in popularity.

HFEA figures report that egg freezing cycles have increased by 11% between 2016 and 2017. Ali who froze her eggs at the LWC shares her story.

 

The LWC are proud to be sponsoring a whole day of events at Fertility Fest 2019 called What Comes First: the Career or the Egg which takes place on Saturday 4th May 2019 at the Barbican, London.

Recently there have been stories in the news about egg-freezing, which cause people to question the ethical validity of women sharing their eggs – in other words, donating them to women in need.

 

Recently we worked with the BBC on their egg freezing documentary. You can see their video here, and the audio version goes out on Radio 4 at 5pm today (Tuesday 19th March).

Egg freezing can seem like a simple solution for women who know they want to be a mum in the future but not now. Trisha Patel, one of our fertility coaches at the LWC shares how we can provide support to women who are freezing their eggs.
