Freezing eggs: A growing consideration for many young women

Egg freezing is fast becoming a viable treatment option for many young women to preserve their fertility for both social and medical reasons. It is now being carried out by about 500 Australian women every year.

Head of Fertility Preservation at Melbourne IVF and The Royal Women’s Hospital, Associate Professor Kate Stern, was interviewed by ABC for an exclusive on the growing popularity of this emerging technique and discusses how the success rate of the procedure is improving.

“There are over 5,000 babies born around the world from egg freezing.

These are not all women who have had eggs frozen for social reasons. Many have had their eggs frozen for medical reasons, for example, because they're having cancer treatment” Prof Stern said.
