Egg Freezing No Longer Labeled Experimental

NBC Bay AreaNBC Bay Area reports that the American Society For Reproductive Medicine is changing its stance on the practice of freezing eggs. The organization no longer considers the practice experimental and that could change the fertility issue for many women. It’s expected that more younger women will make the decision to put their biological clocks on pause.

The change in status is most significant for women younger than age 35, says Dr. Deborah Wachs of RSC. “Especially for younger women, if they freeze their eggs at a younger age, they have in some way paused that biological clock.”
