New website answers your egg-freezing questions

For women interested in freezing their eggs, the process may seem intimidating.  Though the internet provides almost infinite amounts of information, it may be difficult to discern the good from the bad.

Now, the first independent, non-clinic related education and community website has been launched to help women plan their fertility future.

Eggsurance‘s mission is to educate and empower women to take control of their reproductive future,” said Eggsurance CEO & Founder Brigitte Adams. “We have created a safe and welcoming community for women exploring or going through the egg freezing process to connect and share their personal experiences, find or review fertility clinics and gain knowledge to make informed decisions.”

The site features a number of useful tools including sections covering FAQs, clinic reviews, the step-by-step process, and stories from real women undergoing egg freezing.

Egg vitrification (freezing) allows women to basically freeze their fertility in time.  By stopping the aging process of the eggs, a woman has more assisted reproduction options.  Furthermore, when she decides to conceive, she can probably use her own eggs for an IVF procedure, even if she’s over the age of 40.
