As women, we all know about the biological clock, but we might not all know how we can beat it. Eggsperience wants to give ambitious women a roadmap with extensive medical resources for all things egg freezing and back, as we travel our fertility journey to motherhood. Here is a safe place to hear other women’s stories, learn key facts about egg freezing, see what physicians are saying, discover tricks to navigate through the procedure yourself, read, watch, and listen about fertility choices to contemplate your own decisions to make for your future-self. Now is the time to ask your OBGYN or fertility specialist for the Anti-Müllerian Hormone (AMH) test that measures potential fertility and ovarian reserve. This is a simple blood test that can determine the likelihood of a woman’s remaining egg supply. While it does not determine egg quality, which is equally important in the egg freezing process, there are a few other fertility tests that can be used in combination for evaluating your fertility. However, none of the tests are perfect, an estimate is still better than NOT knowing your reproductive status or waiting too long to do anything about it.
Welcome friends! Join us for the Eggology Club podcast to hear interviews of amazing women who have chosen to freeze their eggs, talk out fertility related topics, inform you about fertility technology, newest tests coming down the pipeline, and discuss the different journeys to parenthood.
