Moms have been changing the rules of motherhood. We’ve all come to realize that biology is a little messed up. Sorry to whoever designed the human body but, there are a few equations that are a just a little off—like the one that claims our eggs start to die and diminish in quality before we’ve even had a shot at our careers. The fact that the best time to have babies also happens to be the worst years for our bank accounts just doesn’t make sense. Let’s not even get into the fact that most of us don’t even know who we are, and are not nearly mature enough to be parents yet during our most fertile years. The math there is just a bit…off. Luckily, many women don’t need to choose between having babies and having a career/life because we can do things like freeze our eggs, and just procreate when we’re ready. Right…? Maybe. Should you freeze your eggs? Here’s what you should know.
It’s a great option if you’re just not ready
Egg freezing is a wonderful option for women who know they want kids one day, but also know that that day may be far past the years that their bodies can produce healthy eggs. Women who are still building their careers, for example, and don’t have the time or money to dedicate to a child now might freeze their eggs.
