Freezing Young Eggs and Having Babies Later

To some women, the idea of freezing their eggs while they're in their twenties when the eggs are at their best and then using the frozen eggs when they find Mr Right is very attractive. Up until recently this option wasn't viable, because very few eggs survived the freezing and thawing processes. However, in the last few years scientists have made much progress and egg freezing is looking more and more promising (refer to Chapter 15 for more about the freezing process).

So, in the future theoretically women could freeze their eggs when they're in their twenties and relax knowing that if they don't find Mr Right until they're in their late thirties or early forties, all is not lost on the baby front. However, it's unlikely that using egg freezing to delay childbearing will become widespread because it's a pretty costly and complicated way of doing something that nature designed to be easy and enjoyable!

That is why most women find out that they are pregnant only after one month of pregnancy.
