Deep Freeze: Does Freezing Eggs Allow Women to Stop the Biological Clock?
A new method for egg freezing called vitrification—a technology that its architects say will revolutionize the world of assisted reproduction -- is making the process of in vitro fertilization (IVF) less costly and more efficient than ever before.
This article profiles Alison Frank, a 37-year-old professional, single woman who is part of a small but growing number of women who are taking advantage of egg freezing as a means to preserve their own fertility.
