Hope for Freezing Eggs
Unlike sperm, which can be frozen and used with great sucess in assisted reproductive techniques, freezing a woman's eggs has proven to be difficult and the success rates have been very low. Donor eggs for women who can no longer use their own genetic material to have a child and would like to experience pregnancy and childbirth is still the most viable option, but new results released today have shown promise. Six babies have been born as of September 2006 and another baby is due this December.
