What is egg freezing?
We understand that you may need to make an important decision about preserving your fertility.
Uncertainty about your future fertility can be daunting, even for those who haven’t thought about starting a family. You have choices to preserve your fertility, so you can start or grow your family in the future.
Egg freezing is a method of storing your eggs to preserve fertility and allow you to have a baby later. It’s an option usually considered by women not in a position to have a baby, or whose fertility is at risk for medical reasons.
How did you come to the decision to freeze your eggs?
The final decision was a couple of years in the making, but the process started when I visited my GP when I was 29. She discussed pregnancy and age with me and suggested I have my AMH (Antimullerian Hormone) tested. The AMH test is a blood test that is said to be a good indicator of how many viable eggs a woman has.
