Women still have to use their frozen eggs in 10 years – or lose them. Why?

 

Fertility specialists are advocating for a change in existing U.K. laws that require women who freeze their eggs to use them within 10 years. This time limit does not take into account the remarkable technological advances that have been made in the field, including the introduction of a greatly improved egg-freezing technique called vitrification. As a growing number of women pursue egg freezing in order to preserve their fertility, advocates argue that there is a growing need to update the current legislation around fertility.

Using apps to record information can be useful – having exact dates, for example, which can be helpful for scheduling tests and planning treatments – but there are issues.
