Do I Wish I Would Have Elected To Have Frozen My Eggs Versus Using An Egg Donor?

a blog by Denise Steele, November 6, 2014

I married later in life, became pregnant in my late 30’s and learned when I was 37 that I would not be able to have my own biological children due to my poor egg quality. Ultimately, my husband and I had three boys in one year thanks to an anonymous egg donor cycle and private domestic adoption.

This means that cancer patients need not only consider how best to treat their cancer, but also how to optimize their quality of life after treatment. For many cancer survivors, this may mean the ability to have or expand a family. Being educated about the impact of cancer treatment on fertility and understanding the available options to preserve fertility can be empowering and provide a sense of control over one’s future quality of life.

Egg Freezing - The Emotional Aspect

Let me start by saying, I am not an outwardly emotional person. I float through emotions quite often during the day (some refer to that as moody) but seldom do I act on those emotions. With that being said, if you are a single woman, egg freezing is not for the faint at heart.
