According to the Courier Mail, experts believe that the pandemic has sparked a higher interest in women freezing their eggs.
Overall, the Australian industry has experienced a significant increase in interest surrounding egg freezing following the events of 2020.
Here at Chill Egg Freeze, we have had 45% more enquiries in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the second quarter of 2020.The trend in social egg freezing seems to keep rising as we speak.
Whether you are in your mid-twenties or thirties, experts agree they have seen substantial growth in interest surrounding egg freezing, propelled by the pandemic. Our goal has always been to empower women to be in charge of their future decisions regarding their fertility, and we will keep reminding all women that they have options to press pause on their fertility.
Dr Devora Lieberman, Clinical Director of our Sydney CBD location, says she has seen an increase of young women in their early 30’s enquiring about the service with the pandemic taking stock.
While those interested may want to put their eggs on ice, Dr Lieberman wants to emphasise that egg freezing, is an excellent safety net, but to bear in mind it is simply another option. As for all individuals, achieving a pregnancy will rely on many factors that may not guarantee a baby in the future.
That being said, it does increase both your options and your chances.
So, what do you need to know about freezing your eggs?
Having your eggs frozen is an investment in your future, allowing for freedom of time to focus on more immediate goals and priorities before deciding to start a family in the future. It is a wonderful safety net but is heavily dependent on the health, age, and lifestyle of the patient in regards to preserving viable eggs for future use.
Freezing your eggs can often come with challenges in the form of symptoms like cramping or moodiness that are associated with the procedure, time off to recover, and the financial investment. However, these temporary discomforts come with knowing you have done all you can to preserve your fertility and your chance of conceiving in the future.
At Chill, we want to reassure you that we will be with you every step of the way so you can chill now and focus on the future you have created for yourself.
