While female biologic clock is generally accepted as a fact that cannot be changed, egg freezing is a relatively new IVF approach that helps to give women an option to freeze their eggs while they have good ovarian reserve and eggs are of good quality and possibly use them later in advanced age.
Egg freezing can be done for Medical Reason or Social Reasons. The Medical Indications includes medical treatment for other diseases ,some genetic conditions, IVF treatment interrupted by the unexpected inability to obtain sperm , fertility preservation for cancer patients ,women at risk of premature menopause, building donor oocyte banks, legal and ethical limitations to plan pregnancy
While egg freezing is an option for women who want to preserve their fertility due to medical reasons, it is also frequently chosen by women for whom pregnancy or parenting is difficult or undesirable at the present time.
According to The American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) oocyte freezing is a standard and safe procedure. ASRM issued a new report on 22 October, 2012 stating that in young patients egg freezing techniques have been shown to produce pregnancy rates, leading to the birth of healthy babies, comparable to IVF cycles using fresh eggs. However marketing this technology for the purpose of deferring childbearing may give women false hope and encourage women to delay childbearing.
