The benefit of egg freezing is that eggs will be preserved at the same quality as when they were retrieved and not at a later age of when a women tries to conceive. Many women have delayed growing or starting a family until their 30s and 40s due to numerous factors such as career demands, relationships and the economy; thus greatly decreasing their chances of conceiving or delivering a child. According to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), by age 40, a woman’s chance of getting pregnant is less than 5%, so fewer than 5 out of every 100 women are expected to be successful.
