Amanda Bradford, creator of the dating app The League, says she has spent a great deal of her time in recent years focusing on her career, but does not want to lose sight of her future family.
“I turned 31 and I started thinking about when I wanted to have children and I had all sorts of questions swirling around in my head… I definitely want children, I just don’t want them right now. I’m very much focused on building my company, that’s my baby. I think my fear is that I will be so focused on my career and I will look up and I will 38 or 40 with no kids and then it’s too late,” she shares.
During a recent exam, Amanda’s doctor found that she had 17 eggs in her cycle, with the average woman having 15 to 20. She says she was upset with her number. “It did cause me to think that I should [freeze my eggs] right now,” she continues.
She joins the panel to discuss where she’s at in the process of freezing her eggs. “I’d like to do it with kind of a community or the support of [other] women… I want to do sort of a wine, cheese and eggs night, so we can call go through it together. It’s a pretty intense process, so it would be great to have some support,” she tells ER physician Dr. Travis Stork and OB/GYN Dr. Jennifer Ashton.
Like many women who might be considering the storing of her eggs for a later use, Amanda had many concerns and questions, which Dr. Ashton helped with.
“The best thing for your fertility is the things that are good for your overall health,” Dr. Ashton explains. “So, no smoking – that is really bad for your egg supply. Eating well, exercising. You want to be at your peak level of health, wellness and fitness as much as you can.”
Before making any decisions regarding your fertility, speak with your medical care provider to better understand all your options.
