The Doctors help answer a question from a woman who just turned 30 years old, who wants to know when she should she freeze her eggs. She says she is not ready to have children just yet but wants to plan ahead.
OB/GYN Dr. Thais Aliabadi explains that most doctors recommend freezing your eggs by age 35. In her practice, she begins the discussion at age 28 to 30, and she recommends if you are considering freezing to do it by age 32.
She explains that a woman is born with around 2 million eggs, and by puberty, there are only about 400,000 left. She says by the end of a woman’s 30s, there are only around 27,000 eggs left and by the onset of menopause, a woman has around 1000 eggs left.
“As we age, not only does the quantity the eggs go down, but also the quality. The earlier you freeze, the better it is,” she notes.
She also discusses the high cost of this process explaining the freezing of just one cycle of eggs can cost around $10,000 dollars. The Doctors note there are additional expenses for storing, unthawing and then IFV.
