Apple and Facebook recently announced that they will now pay for female employees to freeze their eggs in order to preserve their fertility. This coverage reflects how the practice of freezing eggs for fertility preservation is no longer experimental and is becoming more mainstream. Given that age has a powerful negative impact on fertility, younger women are considering this option of elective egg freezing. For women considering freezing their eggs, it is critical to ensure that the fertility clinic has experience with the technology of egg freezing. We are proud at Reproductive Partners to have excellent success from egg freezing and in fact, we had the first baby born in San Diego from egg freezing. It is important to remember that freezing eggs is not a guarantee of future fertility and that the chance of success with egg freezing is highest when a woman freezes her eggs at a young age.
