I posted a video that had the actual stats of later pregnancy. And while it is a viable choice some women make, it isn't as necessary as a lot of people think it is. And its far more taxing then most people think it will be. No joke...its hard. If you know someone going through egg freezing or IVF...just be patient and kind with them.

It isn't akin to being pregnant like a poster suggests. Its so much harder then people imagine and there is no baby there...just the hope of a baby. Hope is harder then reality.

I did IVF and adoption because being a mom was important to me. I don't have siblings to give me nieces and nephews. But it would never be the same. I am fine with people being childfree, but some people want to be parents. I don't see a problem with that.

I have a friend who did invitro for her first child and they froze the remaining fertilized eggs.

She ended up using one when the storage contract was ending and now she and her husband have 2 little boys.

I think she said they wanted another $10k for a few more years of storage

Its about $100 a month, maybe less at some places.

But it depends on how many vials you have. And really its a captive market because you cant just pick up your vials and take it to another storage facility that charges less. Well maybe you can but I doubt many people would try it.

From what you've described, it's unlikely she froze eggs, sounds like she froze fertilized embryos because they were leftover from her original IVF process. The OP's question is about women who don't have a male partner who freeze unfertilized eggs that they hope to eventually use to create embryos down the road.

I wouldn't, the success rate is too low to justify going through all that. But I do realise I'm fortunate enough not to be in a position where I have to consider doing something like that.
