Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 27, 2014
Two fortune 500 companies, Apple and Facebook, have announced that they will now pay their employees to have their eggs frozen.
Facebook has already begun coverage on egg harvesting for their employees and Apple will begin in January. By offering this benefit, companies are investing in women and supporting them in carving out the lives they want.
Advanced Fertility Center of Texas (AFCT) has seen nearly a 100 percent pregnancy success rate for all of the patients they serviced who have elected to freeze their eggs.
Women's fertility is dependent on the quality and the number of eggs in her ovaries, which declines with ageing or due to cancer therapy. Therefore, fertility preservation becomes a desirable option, when a woman who is looking to postpone child bearing for any number of reasons or is about to undergo cancer treatment.
Fertility preservation involves removal eggs or ovarian tissues from the women's body and storing them frozen until the patient is ready to conceive. Freezing stops the clock for the eggs and even as women age, the ability of her frozen reproductive tissues to produce a viable egg remains the same as it was when they were frozen. Although egg preservation is no longer considered experimental, its success varies greatly between IVF centers.
AFCT is using the most advanced vivification technique that provides the highest rate of eggs preservation and survival. This year, the first four patients who made a decision to preserve their fertility at AFCT, thawed their eggs to start a family. One of them has delivered a beautiful set of twins and three others are still pregnant.
