Fertility Preservation: Egg Freezing Versus Embryo Freezing

Opinion
Video

An expert examines the definition and benefits of fertility preservation options.

This is a video synopsis/summary of a Population Health Perspectives® involving Janet Choi, M.D.

The video focuses on fertility preservation through oocyte (egg) or embryo cryopreservation. Coverage varies by insurer. Choi advocates universal employer provision given female employees’ natural age-related fertility decline, unlike ongoing sperm regeneration in men. Understanding this biological clock, women may freeze eggs to preserve future family-building options if not ready yet. Though not addressing a current diagnosis, such proactive planning relieves stress over potentially needing frozen younger eggs later when reproductive issues surface. Patients greatly appreciate covered freezing and storage benefits. Choi notes robust policies cover at least one retrieval cycle and one year of storage fees, which are otherwise costly barriers. Employers can determine appropriate cycles. Removing financial impediments enables women to seize a limited window to freeze eggs at peak quality before struggles emerge.
