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 late 2012, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) lifted their “experimental” label for egg freezing, but 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 United States and United Kingdom along with egg freezing perspective by Valerie Landis of Eggsperience and Shalene Petricek of Nest Egg Fertility.
