What is The Best Age to Freeze Your Eggs?
We all know that women are born with the limited number of eggs supply, maybe if we count them in figures then approximately 1 or 2 million of eggs at the time of birth. And by the time as their age increases year by year, the quantity and the quality of eggs also start declining. By the time of puberty, it’s about 2-5 lakh eggs remaining and by the age of 27, it gets down to 25000 eggs and by the age of 50, only 1000 eggs are left. Nearly, 70% of women at the age of 40 find it difficult to conceive.
Thus, multiple cycles are required to achieve the pregnancy. At Delhi Egg Freezing Centre, we help young age women to take better decision in life by giving them the right consultation and offering them the option of egg freezing before their age exceeds 36 years and the quality of eggs worsens. By this way we make their baby insurance in their reproductive age by preserving their healthy and robust eggs for future.
