A couple may not be ready to have children yet but the wife’s age is nearing the 35 year mark, a significant point in a woman’s fertility timeline. There is the possibility of extending your fertility by going through IVF at an earlier age by freezing your eggs or your embryos. At our center, we specialize in freezing eggs and have excellent FET success rates. Frozen embryo transfers are very successful, especially if the embryos are from a woman who is less than 35 years old. The ability to fertilize and freeze eggs or embryos of a “younger you” makes it possible for the woman to delay child bearing until a more convenient time in her life. This is also an option to seriously consider for those in the military whose spouses are deployed for long periods of time.
