Freezing one’s eggs is becoming increasingly popular. For many women, the ability to freeze their eggs means they don’t have to choose between having a child and…anything at all. They don’t need to rush to have a child when they don’t feel financially stable enough, all because the clock is ticking. They don’t need to have a child with the wrong person, all because he was up for the challenge of parenting, and be tied to him for eternity. They don’t need to have a child when, quite frankly, they’re not done being selfish yet! They still want the option to pack up everything and travel for a month if the inspiration hits. They still want the option to buy $200 shoes and not feel terrible about it. They still want the option to get a little too drunk on a Wednesday. And that’s okay. Freezing your eggs means you don’t need to choose between having a child, and everything else. But here are some things you should know about it.

Women do it for health reasons too

Women don’t only freeze their eggs because they aren’t ready to have kids; they also do so for medical reasons. Some women, for example, who have cancer have to freeze their eggs before undergoing chemotherapy, since it can damage their eggs.
