Women in their early twenties constantly feel like they’re racing against time. Invisible deadlines seem to be looming ahead. This may seem strange to someone who’s never experienced this, but the fear is definitely not unfounded. The ominous ticking in the background is that of the biological clock – most often thrust in young women’s faces by society. Women have their own apprehensions, but relatives and neighbours don’t help with their sly references to marriage and the age factor.
However, the clock can indeed be beaten. A recent advancement in medical science allows women to retrieve eggs from their ovaries, freeze them, and store them in an ART Bank. They can use them when they feel the time is right for them to make use of their fertility, without having to worry about infertility or passing time.
Here is why freezing eggs can be a great idea:
When it is time, the thawed eggs can be mixed with sperm in a dish so that fertilisation occurs naturally. This is the conventional in vitro fertilisation (IVF) method. Another method, called the intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) method involves the injection of a single sperm directly into an egg.
Rarely, fertility drugs used to induce ovulation may lead to ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. It causes the ovaries to swell and become painful after egg retrieval. Further, the aspirating needle used to retrieve eggs can also cause bleeding and infection. There are also emotional risks depending on whether or not the pregnancy will ultimately be successful.
The benefits definitely outweigh the risks, which can be avoided if you consult a reputed fertility centre. Milann is one such IVF treatment centre that has won awards for its expertise and is completely reliable.
