Hope you’re enjoying your day and what is about to come your way!
Recently I’ve had the pleasure of chatting it up with a dear lady, across the pond, and over the river and through the woods .. let’s just say a land a little bit far away. We bonded over Skype calls and chatting about all things egg freezing.
Since our first call, some time has passed and I asked her to share a little bit about herself and some of her reasons why she decided to freeze her eggs.
What I love about our friend here, Madhu, is that she didn’t know anyone else that was doing it, and still did it anyways!
Let’s say, “Go on, girl!”
Radell 1 Q: Why did you chose egg freezing, for yourself?
Madhu: I chose egg freezing because it was a practical choice for me. I am in my mid-30s and I want to be a mother someday in the near future. I feel great but I know a woman’s fertility has it’s own timeline. Also, I recently got out of a long term relationship and did not want to force myself to settle down with someone else quickly.
If science can help a woman preserve her fertility, why not take advantage of it? I understand the success rate is not 100% but whatever success I get, I will take it.
2 Q: Why now? What made you move forward with this decision now?
Madhu: I wanted to freeze my eggs while I was still 35. That was my main motivation for moving forward with my treatment.
3 Q: Did you have any health concerns before going through the process?
Madhu:I was mainly concerned with the long term health effects. I wasn’t very concerned with short term side effects , since they disappear soon enough. If there is a proven strong link to diseases, I would not have pursued this treatment.
I also was concerned with the doctor/clinic and their success rates. I feel this deserves some research as selecting the proper doctor is quite important.
4 Q:Do you recommend egg freezing to other woman?
Madhu: It personally gave me relief, so I recommend it.
The recent studies have been comforting as well. But I also know that there is a good probability that it might not work.
5 Q: Having completed egg freezing a few months ago, how do you feel now?
Madhu: Mentally,I definitely feel less stressed about my biological clock. And this definitely helps me in my current relationship.
Physically, I didn’t have many side effects during treatment and the injections were not too painful. I was able to attend work everyday and my body resumed to its natural rhythm soon enough.
Hope you enjoyed that easy breezy egg freezy Q&A Session with Ms. Madhu?!
