There are several common scenarios that result in delayed childbearing for women such as waiting for the right partner, aiming to finish graduate studies or an advanced degree, or just wanting to wait a few more years as a single professional. Less commonly, other women may feel pressure to conceive earlier than their social situation would prefer because they have a family history of premature menopause, or premature ovarian failure, where they are predisposed to run out of eggs in their 20s or 30s. In addition, some women are faced with the news that they have to undergo medical treatments such as chemotherapy that will likely diminish their fertility and so they opt to preserve their fertility with egg freezing.
The benefit of egg freezing is that a woman can have this procedure performed prior to having a sperm source and can have some peace of mind that her frozen eggs will have the reproductive potential of her age at the time of the retrieval rather than the later date of when she decides to conceive. Women who have their younger eggs on reserve should therefore have a better chance of conceiving a normal pregnancy than they would statistically using their own eggs at a later age.
