Our incredible partners at Conceptions Florida were featured on an episode of The Doctors TV yesterday. (Yes, the one hosted by the Bachelor Travis Stork). They interviewed Amanda Bradford, the 32 year old founder of a dating app, as she decided whether or not to freeze her eggs. Ultimately she decided to freeze them and they followed her throughout the process.
So what did we learn? Well, I for one am excited that women are just talking about their options openly. I will say it again, the worst is when we hear, "I wish I'd known." So this helps educate women on their choices.
We also saw that despite her initial indecision about whether to freeze or not, she was ecstatic after. She said she "felt 25 again" and free from the pressure to find "Mr. Right" (does he exist?!) before her biological clock went haywire.
We also learned from Dr. Hernandez-Rey that freezing younger eggs is much better, saw the actual tools and needles used (yep), and realized that just because you have frozen eggs doesn't mean you HAVE to use them. You can still try the "old fashioned way" if you do meet the right person.
