Hello, I had a terrible experience with egg freezing, I am 35 years old and finally financial enough to plan for fertility preservation. I went to OHSU Fertility Clinic and they told me I was too old to do that. Has someone had this problem?? I mean I know I am older than when they recommend you to be… but I felt really discriminated against. Thanks for listening… well, reading!03/15/2022 at 9:34 am
Hi! I had a similar problem, I wanted to freeze my eggs at 38 and not all clinics were happy to do it. I mean I got it done but jesus it was kind of a pain in you know what. The advice I would give you is to do some investigation and visit a couple of doctors and programs to see what fits best.03/22/2022 at 11:42 pm
Choosing the right clinic to preserve your fertility is very important, generally, it is recommended to freeze your eggs before the age of 30 but if it is not possible do it before the age of 35. This doesn´t mean that it is not possible to freeze your eggs after age 35. It is important to know that as the years go on your ovarian reserve or the quantity of eggs reduces as well as the quality of them. Therefore, the general recommendation is to preserve your fertility as soon as possible.
I recommend you visit 2-3 clinics so they can explain how the process is and what are their requirements. To get more info I recommend you read this article: What is egg vitrification?
I hope I could help,
All the best.03/31/2022 at 5:47 pm
