Upcoming Broadcasts

Human egg freezing (Human oocyte cryopreservation) is a process in which a woman's eggs (oocytes) are extracted, frozen and stored. These frozen eggs can be thawed, fertilized, and transferred to the uterus as embryos, when the woman is ready to become pregnant. Social egg freezing, less commonly known as non-medical egg freezing is being increasingly seen as a secure way of delaying childbearing by more and more women, especially in the US. But is it safe for all women? Who should be opting for it? What do the specialists think about it? In 2013, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) both cautioned against egg freezing, owing to limited data on safety, efficacy and emotional risks involved. We are talking to reproductive endocrinologist Dr. Aimee Eyvazzadeh and sociologist Dr. Kylie Baldwin to know the current status of social egg freezing in the US with Valerie Landis and Shalene Patricek.
