  • Why do women freeze eggs?
  • According to a survey, women often freeze their eggs when they wish to delay childbearing process due to some unavoidable reasons.
  • One of the most common reasons for not bearing a child in their 20s is because one doesn't want to shift focus from the career.
  • Besides, a majority of women freeze eggs because they don't have a partner.

  • How are eggs frozen?
  • Eggs are frozen using either a slow-freeze method or a flash-freezing process known as vitrification.
  • In order to redeem eggs for freezing, a patient undergoes a hormone-injection process known as -vitro fertilization.
  • Once the eggs are recovered through the process, they are frozen for a fixed period of time before they are defrosted, fertilized and transferred to the uterus as embryos.

  • What is the egg freezing cost in India?
  • As per reports, infertility specialists in Mumbai charge around Rs. 50,000 for egg freezing. There can be additional charges for maintenance of those eggs.
  • Frozen eggs are stored at 196 degrees Celsius and can survive up to 10 years without disturbance.
  • However, researchers say out of every 10 frozen eggs, 7 are likely to survive the thaw and 5-6 are expected to fertilize.

  • Egg-freezing, a blessing for Diana Hayden
  • Diana was 40 years old when she got married. It was only after her marriage she discovered that she has endometriosis.
  • It is a painful disease in which the endometrium or the inner lining of the uterus starts growing outside as well. Women with endometriosis can't always produce good quality eggs.
  • The whole process proved to be godsend for Hayden.
