This study does not tell us anything about freezing eggs from older women and those who don't have a good fertility profile. What the study does reveal is how effectively frozen eggs from younger, healthy women perform for patients who need them and how invaluable the decision to store one's own eggs, while young and healthy, could prove.
Deep in a freezer, suspended in preservative fluid, lie two of my embryos. They are part of my little one's cohort. The two that were ok but not great. The two we left frozen in the event that my little Jude wasn't to be. I neurotically like having a back up plan. Not just for me, but for my sisters.
