6 Facts You Need to Know About Egg Freezing
Improving Your Fertility
  • Deferring childbearing from twenties until late
    thirties or forties is alluring for women driven
    by their career, even beyond motherhood. In
    October 2014, Facebook and Apple made a public
    statement that they will pay for elective egg
    freezing for female employees. While there are
    other companies too in the West, which are
    covering the cost of elective egg freezing,
    Indian organizations and Indians haven't yet
    embraced the concept.

1. What are the benefits of egg preservation?
  • A large number of women are fiercely
    career-oriented and are postponing marriage and
    consequently childbirth. Once you are ready to
    start your family, in yours 30s, you can use
    these preserved eggs.
  • Early preservation is beneficial. Age is
    important because eggs start growing old in your
    30s. Also, fertility declines with age. It is
    advisable to not freeze eggs if you are 35.
  • Abnormalities happen when someone preserves eggs
    at the age of 35 or 36 and uses them later the
    eggs are old by then.
  • The number of eggs is genetically fixed at birth.
    From the time of puberty till the age of 35, eggs
    start depleting with time. Girls should take the
    Anti-Müllerian Hormone (AMH) test to detect
    fertility. The AMH test measures the ovarian
    reserve' and identifies if a woman has fertility
    lower than expected for her age.

2. For how long can the Eggs remain Frozen?
  • Frozen or cryo-preserved eggs are stored at -196
    degrees, so there is no deterioration in the
    quality of eggs, with time. Healthy babies are
    born from eggs frozen for eight to 10 years also.
  • Eggs cannot be frozen just before menopause
    because it will not guarantee good quality eggs,
    since you have crossed your prime.
  • A lot of Indians haven't yet accepted IVF, so the
    concept of egg freezing is still a distant dream.
    Parents believe that freezing eggs will result in
    an abnormal child. But this is a possibility only
    if eggs are frozen after the age of 35

3. How many Eggs does one need to store to
achieve Pregnancy?
  • If your eggs are frozen in your 20s, chances of
    getting good quality eggs are higher-about 15 to
    25 per cent. From these, about three to four eggs
    will be required to produce a baby.
  • But if the eggs are frozen in your late 30s, the
    number of eggs collected will be less, may be
    less than 10. However, these women need more than
    that (approximately 20 to 25 eggs) to get
    pregnant as many of these eggs will be damaged
    during the procedure of thawing.

4. What is the Egg Freezing Procedure?
  • During the freezing procedure the water inside
    the eggs is dehydrated and replaced with
    anti-freeze in order to prevent ice-crystal
    formation. The shell of the egg usually hardens
    with freezing so sperms are injected with needle
    to fertilize these eggs using a standard
    procedure called ICSI.
  • Eggs are frozen using either slow freeze method
    or flash freezing process known as vitrification.
    Currently, vitrification is the method of choice
    for egg freezing as it causes less damage to
    eggs.
  • According to new guidelines, pregnancy rates were
    similar with fresh eggs and with eggs frozen by
    newer method of vitrification.

5. What is the recommended diet for healthy
fertility?
  • A diet rich in antioxidants helps maintain
    fertility.
  • You should have five to six almonds and one to
    two walnuts every day. The Omega-3 fatty acids in
    these dry fruits helps in building good hormones.
    These dry fruits are particularly good if you are
    planning pregnancy.
  • Eat vegetables and foods that are rich in Vitamin
    E, such as tomatoes, which can reduce the body
    toxins.
  • Avoid junk and fried food as they contain free
    radicals that damage your hormones. It can result
    in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), which
    affects fertility and pregnancy.
  • A good night's sleep is part of the diet. Stress
    and insomnia have a direct impact on hormones and
    affect the ovaries.
  • Exercise regularly and eat healthy foods.

6. Why should one consider taking the AMH Test?
  • Due to environmental pollution, erratic lifestyle
    and unhealthy eating habits, a lot of girls in
    their 20s are facing premature ovarian failure.
