Frozen Eggs
There are a lot of people you see on T.V. who put off having children in order to further work on their careers. It's not uncommon to hear about a movie start turning 40 who is going through in vitro fertilization. Now, women who are putting off childbirth are freezing their eggs for added protection that they will one day be able to have a family.
Women are waiting longer and longer to have children these days. But are they putting their fertility at risk? "Extra" co-host and "Dr. Drew's Lifechangers" contributor Maria Menounos says she doesn't want to take any chances.
The 33 year old is one of an increasing number of women who have decided to freeze their eggs to ensure fertility in the future.
Maria Menounos is on the other side of the microphone, opening up about a revolutionary procedure--and a very personal decision-- in a video diary on Dr. Drew's "Life Changers." Maria video diary: "It is Friday, D day, it's the morning of my doctor's appointment. I don't know why I'm doing this. I'm terrified. I know why I'm doing this actually, I'm doing it for the right reasons. But I'm going to the doctors today to check on how many eggs I have available for freezing. 33 year old Maria is one of a growing number of women who have decided to postpone pregnancy by harvesting their eggs. Dr. Nicole Noyes: "Women lose two thirds of their fertility between the ages of 35 and 40 so if they're not ready to have children at 35 egg freezing is something they can do to keep their pregnancy chances up." More than 1000 babies around the globe have been born from using the procedure--including Hayden Henzel-the first baby in Colorado to be born from a frozen egg. His parents, Carolyn and Gregg, told GMA in 2009 that they couldn't be happier about their decision. "He's precious, he's peaceful, he's-- he's insightful, He's thoughtful. He gives us an entirely new way to look at life." As for Maria, she says made the decision so she could focus on her booming career-- but knows when the time is right for her future family, she'll be ready.
