REACH has made the process of freezing eggs easier than ever before.
Due to numerous factors such as career demands, relationships and even the economy, many have delayed growing or starting a family until their 30s and 40s, thus greatly decreasing their chances of conceiving or delivering a child. According to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), by age 40, a woman’s chance of getting pregnant is less than 5%, so fewer than 5 out of every 100 women are expected to be successful.
The quantity and quality of a woman’s eggs decline each year. This decline dramatically increases between the ages of 35 and 40, greatly decreasing the changes of having a child. Elective egg freezing may help. When a woman freezes her eggs they will be preserved at the same quality as when they were retrieved possibly giving her a greater chance of success when she tries to conceive at a later age. When a couple decides to start or grow their family, the frozen eggs are thawed and combined with sperm to create embryos. The healthiest embryo or embryos are then selected and transferred during in-vitro fertilization.
REACH recognizes that busy professionals need to quickly learn the details associated with the egg freezing procedure. This is why REACH has developed an Egg Freezing Fertility Preservation process that includes all of the steps necessary.
