No Stable Partner, The Reason Behind Women Freezing Eggs: Study

Women tend to freeze their eggs not for career planning or education, but due to the lack of a stable relation according to a new study done by the Yale University in USA.
Lack of a stable relationship could be the reason why young women are increasingly opting to freeze their eggs, contrary to the popular belief of delaying childbearing due to pursuing education or career, says the study.

The findings showed that 85 per cent who chose to freeze their eggs, were without partners, and reflected six different life circumstances - being single, divorced or divorcing, broken up from a relationship, working overseas, single mother by choice or circumstance, and career planning.
Those with partners had circumstances such as a man not ready to have children, in a relationship too new or uncertain, with a partner who refuses to have children, or with a partner with his own multiple partners.

"Most of the women had already pursued and completed their educational and career goals but by their late 30s had been unable to find a lasting reproductive relationship with a stable partner. This is why they turned to egg freezing," said Marcia Inhorn from the Yale University in the US. "The medical literature and media coverage of oocyte cryopreservation - egg freezing - usually suggest that elective egg freezing is being used to defer or delay childbearing among women pursuing education and careers. "Our study suggests that the lack of a stable partner is the primary motivation," Inhorn said.

For the study, presented at the 34th Annual Meeting of ESHRE in Barcelona, the team conducted in-depth interviews with 150 women who had chosen to freeze their eggs at fertility clinics and had completed at least one cycle of oocyte cryopreservation.
"Clinicians must be aware of the role partnership 'troubles' play in the lives of egg freezing patients and make patient-centred care for single women a high priority," Inhorn said.

Across all our facilities at Kiran Infertility Center in India and abroad we have had many women (Single/Married), who decided to take the advantage of the technology of freezing their eggs, so they can fulfill their dreams of motherhood when they are ready.
We offer a very affordable package for oocyte freezing.

Why Ukraine Has Become A Hot-Spot For Child Surrogacy

Kiran Fertility Services has been helping Intended Parents via our Surrogacy Ukraine program for over 2 years. Surrogacy in Ukraine became very popular and Ukraine is called the 'capital of surrogate maternity' as the laws concerning surrogacy are relatively lax in comparison to other countries. The surrogate mother does not have the right to reconsider - that is, to keep the child instead of handing the child over to the Intended Parents. The price of the surrogacy process is also affordable.
"In many European countries surrogacy is allowed only if it does not entail a financial exchange," says Sergey Antonov, a lawyer from IRTSA Ukraine - one of the first firms in Ukraine to offer assisted reproduction services.

One of the laws issued by the Ministry of Health of Ukraine says that surrogacy can only be offered to a married couple which, for one reason or another, has been diagnosed as infertile and incapable of reproducing. 

We were always committed to help anybody to have a baby via our surrogacy program regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation or the fact that someone is or is not legally married and this is why we started with our Surrogacy Program in Kenya: https://surrogacykenya.org/
Surrogacy Kenya helped and is continuing to help many Intended Parents to have babies. It always feels good  to see "OUR" babies grow.
