Hello, I'm a newbie to this forum. Let me intro myself - I've just turned 39 and I basically feel great about my life. The good news is that I am very ready to be a mother (for a long while now). The bad news is that I'm suddenly single (my fiance of a 6 year relationship left me before our wedding - that's another story!).
After all the tears etc, I decided that I have no time to cry for the *******. I need to be strong and clear headed to face a more urgent issue - my biological clock!
So I come to this dilemma - should I freeze my eggs now; or find a donor and freeze embryos (or have a baby now without freezing the embryos)?
If I freeze my eggs, I have a little bit of time to try to find a partner. It would seem much easier to have a "conventional" family. But from my basic research on the internet, it seems frozen eggs are not as effective as frozen embryos to achieve live births later on (am I correct?).
If I freeze embryos or have a baby now, I have a slightly better chance (compared with frozen eggs) of having a baby. It might be a bit harder to find a partner that way. I might end up being a solo mum by choice, which I am ok with if I really cannot find a partner.
At my age and being single, should I freeze my eggs or freeze embryos? What would you do?
Are frozen embryos less successful than fresh embryos in achieving live births?
Any views or experience sharing about egg/ embryo freezing are much appreciated. Thank you!
