When is the right age to freeze my eggs?

In my β€œ9-5” day job I see a lot of women coming into the office to freeze their eggs…

πŸ₯šπŸ₯šπŸ₯š

I see them after they have realized they aren’t meeting the right Man or Woman right now and their biological clock is ticking…

πŸ₯šπŸ₯šπŸ₯š

I see them when they can finally afford to freeze their eggs!

πŸ₯šπŸ₯šπŸ₯š

And by this time, they need at least 25 to 35 eggs to ensure 1 healthy live birth.

πŸ₯šπŸ₯šπŸ₯š

Yes, we are born with 1-2 million πŸ₯šs at birth and we ovulate @ 450-500 πŸ₯šs in our reproductive lifetime (assuming we were not on birth control pills).

πŸ₯šπŸ₯šπŸ₯š

Misconception – birth control pills do NOT save up on eggs!

πŸ₯šπŸ₯šπŸ₯š

When we stimulate a woman (depending upon her fertility and with the very real fact that the average age of menopause is 35-55 years of age) we may only get +/- 5-10 eggs with each IVF/egg freeze cycle . Most importantly we don’t even know if these πŸ₯šs are healthy until it is time to make a baby with them.

πŸ₯šπŸ₯šπŸ₯š

Each egg freeze cycle can cost anywhere from $10,000 – $15,000 PER cycle… what college girl has that kind of dough lying around???

πŸ₯šπŸ₯šπŸ₯š

To answer the question β€œWhen is the best age to freeze your eggs?”

πŸ₯šπŸ₯šπŸ₯š

Consider this: No IVF Clinic will take an anonymous egg donor that is over 27-28 years of age…

πŸ₯šπŸ₯šπŸ₯š

Ladies, DONATE YOUR EGGS TO YOURSELF… before you are over 28 years old.

πŸ₯šπŸ₯šπŸ₯š

To our healthcare system… PAY for women to donate their eggs to themselves so we can keep our species alive…
