Many are not ready or able to have a child in their 20s. This could be because our soul mate hasn't come along yet (and we may still be waiting), we were just not ready or time just slipped by and so did our 20s and for some of us most of our 30s. Time has passed and we are now worried that our chances of having a child of our own diminishes with every birthday due to age related fertility decline.
Electing to freeze our eggs increases our potential to have a child later on in life. Our eggs are "suspended in time", they don't age when they are frozen so they are the age we were at the time we froze them. Egg freezing does not guarantee a baby, but it gives us a better chance than if we didn't act.
Some of the complications could possibly include the following:
Egg freezing is not for every woman and every woman is different, with different needs, medical situation, life experiences and expectations. This is why it is absolutely necessary to make sure treatment is performed with empathy, integrity and individualised care. The most important thing is that every woman is listened do, everyone’s questions are answered, and you make an informed decision that is right for you!
Frozen eggs when used in an IVF cycle result are just as good as using fresh eggs in IVF, which is fantastic, however, just as IVF does not guarantee a baby we cannot guarantee that freezing your eggs will ensure you have a baby when you come to use them. As we cannot tell the quality of your eggs, we do not know how they will survive the freezing process, how they will fertilise (this also depends on the sperm), how your resulting embryos will grow and the quality of your embryos once transferred back to you.
