Even some anti-depressants, thyroid medications, and other every day prescriptions can have a negative effect on your fertility. Many treatments can destroy eggs. Carefully planning now could preserve your choice to start a family later. Egg freezing is also a good option for women who are planning on undergoing other treatments or who have partners about to undergo treatments and might consider embryo freezing or male cryopreservation. Freezing your eggs earlier in life will dramatically increase your chance of getting pregnant later.
• Women with premature ovarian failure or a family history of premature menopause should also consider freezing their eggs. Consult your OB/GYN to see if they would recommend this procedure to you as a preventative measure.
• RELIGIOUS/MORAL REASONS- The truth of the matter is that after IVF, often times couples will have an excess of embryos they may wish to freeze. This is a good idea in case a couple plans on having more children later. However, many people have religious or moral objections to the treatment and handling of a fertilized egg here in NYC.
