1. Eat foods to support your body as best as you can.
Check out our post on nutrition prior to egg freezing here.
2. Be comfortable with your doctor and their staff.
The entire process is very personal, so finding the people that will allow you the freedom and comfort to ask questions and feel safe is important. They are taking out your eggs after all.
3. Talk about it! It’s something to be proud of.
We are so fortunate to live in a time in which technology and science can allow so many opportunities and vectors to have children from IVF to surrogacy.
However, the egg freezing process is not easy on the body. There is a fallout from the hormonal changes associated with medications in this process. The process in general and post-retrieval also come with challenges. But having people to discuss this with is comforting and empowering!
4. It’s never too early to start talking about your fertility and understanding your options.
Most of the time, the younger the eggs the better the quality. Nowadays, however, science is more advanced and the eggs harvested can remain frozen indefinitely.
