14When Should They Do it?

Is there an opportune time to freeze your eggs? Yes. There is. Just like the rest of your body, your eggs can age as well. When eggs become too old, they no longer function as they should which can lead to problems with reproduction. The best time to get your

eggs frozen would be considered the same time you would be in your prime reproducing period. This means that a woman should freeze her eggs in her 20s or early 30s in order to have the best quality.

Unlike a man, a woman is born with all the eggs she will ever have in her lifetime. They do not reproduce or grow on their own. Pretty amazing when you think about it. As time goes on, these eggs start to diminish, either by not being used and being released with the menstrual cycle, or simply by being too old. You want to catch them in their prime time in order to have success further on.
