Despite of the belief that young women are more likely to postpone pregnancy for social reasons, such as the desire to build a career, the British study discovered that women want children and understand the effect of the biological clock, but could not meet a partner who will give them a sense of stability necessary to give birth to a baby, leading to women freezing their eggs by reaching the "age of risk" in hopes to meet their chosen one in the future.
At the same time, the study indicates a dangerous trend – on average, women begin to think about freezing their eggs by the age of 38, when a biological cell ageing process is in full swing, which means that eggs frozen at this age are less reliable than the eggs frozen in their youth.
The study of De Montfort University in Leicester, the United Kingdom, indicates that women decide to freeze their eggs because they have failed to meet their true partners, with whom they feel safe enough to give birth to a child. Therefore, by realising that the biological clock is ticking and woman's fertility diminishes over the years, women choose to freeze their eggs in the hope that they will meet someone to have children with through IVF (in vitro fertilisation, fertilisation in a laboratory environment). None of the participants of the study indicated that career development is more important to her than love and a baby.
By examining the situation in the UK, the scientists learned that only 29 women were willing to freeze their eggs for social reasons (reasons not related to diseases, treatment of which may affect the fertility) in 2001, and as much as 816 women wanted to freeze their eggs for social reasons in 2014. The study also found that in most cases women want to freeze their oocytes for social reasons after their 30s (with the average age of 38). At this age, the cells had already started the process of biological ageing, which reduces the chances of pregnancy in the future.
"During the past few years, the belief has prevailed that women are choosing to postpone childbirth in their youth for social reasons especially because of their careers, but the UK scientists' research denies this idea. These studies confirm that the baby is the fruit of love between two people and women want children. You cannot blame women saying that they are unaware of the decreasing ability to conceive a child with their age and the fact that the egg in their youth and the egg in their adulthood will not produce the same results. But it should be considered that the woman's fertility is closely linked to the biological age, lifestyle and general well-being, and therefore is very individual. In my practice, the youngest woman whose eggs exhausted wasn't even in her 30s, and the oldest mother whose child was born thanks to IVF was 57, which shows that the health of each woman is very individual, and the existence of menstrual cycle says nothing by itself," says Victoria Zaletova, the fertility specialist of "Mama Rīga" Reproductive Health Clinic, an expert with 24 years of experience in reproductive medicine, having more than 20 scientific publications on reproductive health and more than 8000 "godchildren" worldwide, a member of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE).
