I am 35. My husband and I do not plan to have children in the near future. Should I get my eggs frozen now? Should my husband get his sperms frozen as well? When is the best timing to get my eggs frozen?

Answer from the Doctor
Yes, egg freezing. Every woman has her biological clock. For women who are 35 years old and above, their eggs quality and quantity will drop.

For men, sperm freezing is not necessary as man reproduce fresh sperm every 3 months. Unless he needs to undergo cancer treatments such as chemotherapy then they will need to go for sperm freezing.

If you are still not ready to build your family at the moment and as you are now in a stable relationship, you may consider freezing your embryos instead of eggs/ sperm. There are pros and cons for these 2 options that you may want to discuss with your fertility specialist before making a decision. The actual best timing for a woman to get her eggs frozen is in her late twenties and early thirties as the chances of obtaining more and better quality eggs will be during this age.
