Women Able to Delay Motherhood Through Ovary Freezing
Women in Britain in their 20s and early 30s will be able to “bank” their ovarian tissue when it is most fertile, and have it re-implanted years later. The procedure is expected to be available within the next six months. At present only a few countries, including the United States, Denmark and Belgium, offer the option. To date, 19 babies have been born as a result. Yesterday, experts said the controversial treatment will soon become commonplace as it has been shown to be more effective than egg freezing and even IVF.
