A major child epidemic may be rampant but there is one group that is showing interest in having children. As the culture continues to grow, the number of women who choose to receive contraceptives is on the rise. According to New York’s Kindbody Reproductive Hospital, egg-laying methods have also expanded this year.
Oocyte cryopreservation, or freezing of the egg, is one of the fastest growing processes in the reproductive system. The whole starting point has changed to encourage women to see it as a way to reduce their fertility. Compassionate is known for its hospitals that come out in yellow and white cars that offer free checks at the fertile. Egg cooling, he says, is a way to “have your future”. Add Extention Fertility ads by comparing the cost of buying a plate of dried berry acai daily, making it look like a more enjoyable life than surgery.
What the advertising industry does not say is how the system can work. One round costs £ 8,000 in the UK and $ 15,000 in the US. However the birth rate is less than one in five.
Perhaps because Silicon Valley companies were the first to offer egg freezing as a place to sell, there is a medical expertise that integrates them well. Facebook launched in 2014, with chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg acting chief executive. Apple and Google followed soon. Many companies work with others to provide fertile labor for workers. Uber is making a profit through Progyny, which came to light in late 2019 and has a turnover of $ 4.5bn.
The UK is slowly moving in one direction, encouraged by its technical component. In late 2020, Eileen Burbidge, the UK’s special Treasury representative at fintech, announced that many British companies should adhere to the Silicon Valley leadership. “I would love to get to where it is possible for all 20/30 they freeze their eggs, “he said on Twitter. NatWest and Clifford Chance all have increased their benefits including support.
The anti-freeze effect of the egg as a perk worker sees a dystopian corporate culture that tends to squeeze many employees at any cost. Eggs that hatch are thought to be too busy with girls to climb the ladder to get married.
Research shows otherwise. Women are constantly hit in the head with data on their fertility deficits. Burbidge says workers, not companies, are the ones driving the demand. The 2018 survey is Yale University they also found that many people who chose to lay their eggs did not do so because they put their work first but because they had not yet found a permanent partner.
But the emphasis on fertility care as insurance can be deceptively comforting. I have friends who have received treatment and have not been told how to do better. Finding data is not easy.
This is because it is new. Until 2012, the US saw egg cooling as a test method. Many of the women who enrolled in the program have not yet tried to use their eggs.
For those who have come back with the prospect of pregnancy, the numbers are staggering. Data from the UK Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority shows that in 2016, less than 200 women received fertility care in the country using their melted eggs. Birth was only 18 percent.
This is not a story told by Instagram ads. They also do not pay much attention to treatment as time-consuming and risky, which requires days of self-hormonal injections, frequent monitoring and egg release under sedation. Women in their 20’s have some very good success rates, but doctors may be cautious about providing unnecessary surgical treatment.
Lord Robert Winston, an independent professor of fertility education at Imperial College London, has called egg cooling a “superficial technology”. Even critics agree that the opportunity is poor. The risk of success is often compared to IVF treatment, but the problem is that the rate of IVF birth itself is relatively low. 24 percent on the fetus, according to HFEA. Even for young mothers, any stage of freezing and thawing eggs, from accumulation to fertilization and the development of the fetus, carries a high risk of miscarriage.
Childbirth, or lack thereof, can be painful and frustrating. More options are welcome. But egg cooling is expensive, confusing and comes with few side effects. Growing companies that encourage women to view their services as insurance without specifying a successful opportunity offer false hope.
