Are you worried that your clock is ticking and you've not met the right person yet, you don't relish being a single mum and your life circumstances now are not ideal for having a child?
This is my account of what I did as a newly-single 37 year-old. I knew precious little about my fertility and my options at the beginning and I gathered a huge body of knowledge (and life lessons) during what became a 10-month quest. I want to share it all with you, so that you can get a headstart and begin your journey from a more informed place.
And if you are simply curious, by reading "The SIngle Girl's Guide To Egg Freezing", you will be able to experience the highs and lows alongside me and decide whether this is an avenue you would like to explore in the future.
Factual information includes: when does female fertility decline; how to get your fertility tested; what to do if the test results are discouraging; for UK citizens - whether to use the NHS; finding the right clinic; looking at cheaper clinics overseas; what does the procedure involve; how to give yourself injections; preparing your body nutritionally beforehand; detoxing afterwards; and of course, a detailed account of my own treatment and recovery.
Special features include: A resource guide (reading and website recommendations, clinics, info, events, forums and more); Summary: 12 steps to follow if you want to egg freeze; and frequently asked questions.
Why am I publishing this? Because I want us all to be empowered women making choices from an informed place. Because I needed a resource like this when I was on my quest. Because if my journey can in some way illuminate yours, that will be an honour.
