Bethesda Fertility Center provides fertility preservation treatment to prepare for a family in the future
Egg viability drastically declines after age 37. Bethesda Fertility Center offers compassionate care to patients considering their fertility options.
In a recent interview with Allure Magazine, actress Jennifer Aniston opened up about her fertility struggles, shining a light on fertility preservation. However, questions linger around options, and how they work.
Bethesda Fertility Center Medical Director Kasey Reynolds, M.D., FACOG, says fertility preservation is like an insurance policy. If a patient and her partner aren’t ready to start a family, or a woman is entering her late 30s, the process of freezing eggs and embryos for later use offers more options and a better chance to conceive than if a patient is in her 40s.
“Preservation has become more popular. Increasingly, people are delaying childbearing—for social flexibility, to further their education and other reasons. Celebrities are more vocal, and it’s becoming more common for primary care physicians to initiate those conversations as well, which helps combat misinformation and a general lack of awareness,” says Reynolds. “This is important as age is a key factor when deciding.”
Bethesda Fertility Center offers resources and treatments for patients as they consider starting a family—now or in the future.
