Is Your Job or Career Taking Up All Your Time? – Consider Freezing Your Eggs

Career aspirations and an ambition to be professionally successful are a high priority for many women. Often, this means long hours in the office and the need to have an extremely flexible schedule. These demands and the desire to be professionally established before having children prompt many women to delay having children. Unfortunately, some women learn that delaying having children has had a negative effect on their fertility. Fertility preservation addresses this issue and provides a means for women to pursue their professional goals without sacrificing their ability to have children when they are ready.


Women are born with all of their eggs. These eggs are at their peak from puberty until age 35. After age 35, the quality of the eggs begins to decline, which can make it difficult to becoming pregnant. The goal of egg freezing is to harvest and bank younger, healthier eggs so that when a woman is ready to have children, she has eggs available. Ideally, eggs should be frozen as early as possible to have the best results. However, there is no age limit to egg freezing and fertility preservation. Being a candidate for this procedure is based on medical results, not age.

There are many advantages to freezing your eggs:

  • You can pursue your career or other aspirations without worry that you are sacrificing your ability to have children.
  • When the state of the art freezing method of vitrification is used, eggs have a 98 percent survival rate of the freezing and thawing process. Additionally, eggs can be stored for an extended period of time without being damaged.
  • The actual egg freezing cycle takes roughly three weeks from start to finish.
  • Harvesting of the eggs is done in an outpatient procedure and you can return to normal activity within a couple of days.
