Today the trend in the poster the beginning of maternity after the 30 years in increase, between the wishes of professional and personal improvement, we are postponing the moment in which we wish to become parents.

However, the age factor is the main determinant at the time when we are faced with a desire to achieve a pregnancy. Although today’s women are healthier and take care of themselves better than ever, better health in adulthood does not counteract the natural decline in age-related fertility. It is important to understand that fertility decreases with the age of women because of the normal decrease in age relative to the quantity of eggs remaining in the ovaries. This decline may occur much sooner than most women expect.

Fertility gradually declines after age 30, especially after age 35. The quality of the eggs is reduced as the number of eggs is decreased. These changes are most notable when the woman reaches the age of 35 to 39 years. The decreasing amount of follicles containing ova in the ovaries is called “loss of ovarian reserve.” Women begin to lose the reserve before becoming sterile and before they stop having regular. The diminished reserve is usually related to age and occurs due to the natural loss of the eggs and a decrease in the quality of the means of the remaining eggs.

What I can do?

Fortunately, there are techniques that help us in conserving germ cells (eggs and sperm) before factors such as aging, disease, or medication diminish the quality of our cells and significantly diminish the chance of having a son.

Freezing eggs for fertility conservation is a new technology that demonstrates a potential for success.

What is the process?

The process consists in administering drugs to promote follicular growth and the maturation of ovules in the ovary, after approximately 10 days of treatment. The eggs obtained are vitrified (frozen) and can remain in this state indefinitely, of this This ensures that in the future you will have enough eggs and adequate quality to look for a pregnancy.

What if I’m a boy?

You can also keep a semen sample, by freezing.

Other indications:

– Patients who are going to undergo chemotherapy / radiation therapy.

– Men with some chronic degenerative disease that decrease semen quality (Diabetes Mellitus, Arterial Hypertension, etc.).

– Take some medications chronically, which can affect the quality of semen.

For more information we recommend that you approach your doctor, he will guide you.
