Stop Your “Biological Clock” With Us! Preserve Your Fertility before Age or “Pollution” kills it! – Dr. Aastha Gupta
Further, she explains, the process of egg-freezing or oocyte cryopreservation, comprises of stimulating the ovaries with hormones to produce various eggs, retrieving the eggs from the ovaries and taking them to the lab, where they are cooled down to very low temperature to be thawed in future.
Along with this, she shared her overall experience and the journey till date in this medical field which is very unique in its own way. She also said that there can be many reasons why women are opting to freeze their eggs.
As per the database of Delhi IVF almost 88% of women do so because they haven’t found their right partner, 24% of women do so because of their professional life and career related problems, 15% of women do so for financial reasons and other 15% of women because they were not ready for childbearing at the current moment and 8% of women do so for various different reasons including cancer .
She also highlighted that sometimes because of cancer treatment, which can cause early menopause, that’s why egg freezing is a better choice before the treatment begins to stay away from the risk of infertility later.
“If egg freezing is done before the age of 36, it would be much better” – Dr. Aastha Gupta
She has various reputed medical certifications in her list, which makes her more versatile to treat even the toughest situations of infertility problems. Therefore, she works with the vision to eliminate the problem of infertility from the society and educate people on “how they can stay away from infertility”, and how “prevention is better than cure.
