Last year, Amanda Bradford – creator of the dating app The League – visited The Doctors to share her dilemma of whether or not to freeze her eggs and we are with her when she meets with reproductive endocrinologist Dr. Armando Hernandez-Rey to discuss her options. Amanda tells Dr. Hernandez-Rey that freezing her eggs will “extend her runway for meeting Mr. Right.”
The reproductive endocrinologist recommends that she does freeze her eggs after a period of controlled ovarian hyperstimulation and retrieval of her eggs. To help produce the most eggs possible, Amanda had to give herself a series of shots 3 times a day. The procedure involves the extraction of her eggs and then an embryologist separates the eggs to freeze. Dr. Hernandez-Rey was able to harvest 11 eggs from Amanda and says, “[Her] fertility has been effectively preserved.”
Following the procedure, Amanda tells The Doctors, “I feel less stressed about dating and finding Mr. Right and I can focus on building my business.” She also says that when she does decide to have children, that having waited will allow her to be a more hands-on mom and devote more time to her child.
When it comes to deciding who is the best candidate for freezing eggs, Dr. Hernandez-Rey says, “Everybody is really a candidate, but the truth is yesterday is better than today, and today is better than tomorrow.” Dr. Hernandez-Rey notes that in Amanda’s case when she decides to start a family that he recommends trying the old fashion way first and the frozen eggs will serve as an insurance policy.
