EggBanxx Hosts Its First Educational Event for Women Thursday, May 15th

As part of National Women's Health Week, May 11-17, is shining a light on women's reproductive health by hosting a free event geared towards raising awareness of egg freezing, an elective procedure for women interested in preserving their fertility.

With EggBanxx’s elite network of fertility specialists, patients can choose from a wide array of nationally recognized egg freezing doctors right in their own backyard. EggBanxx physicians use only the newest technology, vitrification, to freeze eggs. Pregnancy results from vitrified, frozen eggs have shown comparable success rates to fresh eggs, thereby catapulting interest in egg freezing.
The event, EggBanxx: Chicago, is being held May 15th at 6pm at Hotel Monaco, 225 N. Wabash Avenue in downtown Chicago.

"At EggBanxx, we hear dozens of stories from women who want biological children but they're either not ready or aren't in a relationship and they'd like to wait. By freezing their eggs now, they're locking in younger eggs to use if they find themselves in a situation later in life where they have trouble conceiving or their eggs are prone to miscarriage or chromosomal abnormalities. That’s the situation for 1 in 3 women age 35 or older,” says Jay Palumbo, the Director of Patient Care at EggBanxx. Similar to traditional IVF, success rates for egg freezing decline with maternal age, so it’s recommended for women to freeze their eggs in their early to mid 30s.

“Women today see celebrities having babies in their mid-forties and aren’t aware that they are likely using donor eggs. Women also aren’t informed about their ovarian reserve and how it declines with age, and how for some of us our reserve may be lower than that of our peers,” adds Palumbo.
Through a simple blood test that your OB/Gyn can perform, women can empower themselves and discover what their true biological clock looks like and whether egg freezing is right for them. “The process is incredibly empowering and much easier than I expected,” admitted EggBanxx Sales & Marketing Manager, Leahjane Lavin, a 34-year old Manhattan professional undergoing her first cycle. “Join us in Chicago to learn more about egg freezing. It’s not as scary as you think and you’ll leave feeling more confident than ever before about your reproductive choices!”
