"I froze my eggs

Reader::Your Story, Your Way

“I froze my eggs when I was 31. I was single, had an established career, and a great life. I was happy. I dated a lot but I just hadn’t met “the one.”

‘I felt that being single was certainly preferable to being with the wrong person. I decided to freeze my eggs after I had lab work done by my OB/GYN and received some less than favorable results regarding my fertility (FSH above 10, AMH above 1.)’

‘I knew I wanted the option of having my own biological children one day but wasn’t willing to rush into just any relationship. Freezing my eggs was the best decision I’ve ever made.’

‘The doctors were extremely informative and supportive, and I was able to use fertility financing which I’ve since paid off. Having a backup plan was reassuring and allowed me to stop panicking about time. Also, when I shared this information with men I was dating, the response was actually pretty favorable.’

–They saw me as a confident woman who wasn’t going to settle rather than the “desperate woman in her 30’s” stereotype.

‘When I turned 35, I took a trip to Ibiza. I almost didn’t go because my family and friends kept telling me I needed to stop traveling so much. They said I needed to stay in one place if I wanted to meet the right person and start a family.’

‘Turns out they were wrong. Sometimes the best way to meet someone is to keep doing what you love. For me that’s traveling, and it is for my dream man too. When I met Karl, he was 42, had never been married, and didn’t have children.’

‘We had so much in common including that we both took the time to establish careers and really figure out who we are and what we want out of life. Being with Karl made me realize why it never worked out with anyone else. If I have a daughter, I would pay for her to freeze her eggs in her 20’s (Younger eggs = healthier eggs).’

‘Because I never want my daughter to think she is a ticking clock whose value depreciates with age. Society puts so much pressure on women and I think it’s important we empower ourselves, explore all our options, and never settle.”
