1. Egg freezing will finish the egg reserve: Egg freezing helps preserve a woman’s egg reserve by allowing her to freeze and store healthy eggs for future use. As per studies,  the stimulation medications used during the process can preserve a portion of her existing egg reserve by preventing eggs that would naturally be lost in a menstrual cycle from being discarded.

2. Egg freezing is a treatment for women in their mid-30s or later: Women are born with a finite number of eggs, and as time passes, both the quality and quantity of eggs are compromised. Hence, it is always better to freeze sooner rather than later.
