Pourquoi est-ce si important de préserver sa fertilité ?

View from behind of two girlfriends or a lesbian couple standing in autumn woods leaning on each other with their arms around one another. De nos jours, les différentes techniques de reproduction assistée permettent de repousser l’âge pour avoir des enfants par le biais notamment de la congélation ou cryopréservation des ovules d’une femme en âge de concevoir.

Mais… pourquoi est-ce si important de préserver sa fertilité ?

Il y a encore peu de temps de cela, vous ne vous seriez pas poser la question ; ne connaissant très certainement pas l’existence même de cette possibilité. Mais, si vous avez actuellement atteint la trentaine et que vous pensez « un jour » avoir des enfants, vous devriez être au courant des avantages de la préservation de votre fertilité via une simple procédure que vous pouvez notamment effectuer ici, à IVF Spain. Tout d’abord, il faut se rappeler que la réserve ovarienne de la femme diminue considérablement à partir de 35 ans. Cela signifie que vos ovules sont moins nombreux et ceux qui restent sont de moins bonne qualité. Pour toute grossesse, avoir une qualité ovocytaire optimum est primordiale afin d’éviter les échecs d’implantation, les fausses-couches ou les maladies génétiques comme la fibrose kystique, la trisomie 21 ou bien encore la dystrophie musculaire parmi tant d’autres. C’est pourquoi, chez IVF Spain, nous recommandons à toutes les femmes de surveiller leur capacité reproductive en contrôlant périodiquement leur réserve ovarienne afin de pouvoir préserver leur fertilité en cas de besoin. Pourquoi préserver votre fertilité peut vous aider dans votre vie personnelle?

  1. Pouvoir profiter de la vie de couple avant de devenir parents.

In a relationship, having children brings important changes, such as, for example, adapting both of your lifestyles to the new responsibilities related to parenting, the negotiated sharing of such tasks and a general decrease in the quality time spent with your spouse. Dans une relation de couple, avoir des enfants est source d’importants changements. However,  a couple that has had the chance to enjoy for several years a romantic relationship full of meaningful moments together, such as: trips, family and social reunions, professional development, lifestyle improvements for both, etc. is generally much better prepared emotional to face the new challenge of forming a family than a couple than has not had this chance.

  1. More financial stability and dedication to your children

Thanks to advances in reproductive medicine, it’s no longer necessary to give up a professional career in order to have children. Women in our society are now able to delay the age at which they have children and stop their eggs from aging.   Having children at a point of professional stability, also implies more financial stability, which is necessary to face the expenses of this new life.   Choosing the ideal time to have children not only offers you more financial stability, but also the chance to spend more time with your children and provide them with more attention and a better education.

  1. Not giving up efficacy or having a healthy baby after 35

The steps to follow in a fertility preservation treatment start with a controlled ovarian stimulation and cutting edge technology, with the aim of obtaining the largest possible amount of eggs to finally preserve those of highest quality.   This way, when a 35+ year old woman that has preserved her fertility, decides to become a mother, she has the guarantee of relying on her own eggs with the quality of when she was 25.   In any in vitro treatment the good state of the eggs is crucial to avoid implantation failures, miscarriages and something very important that most parents are concerned with nowadays: genetic alterations.

  1. Independence and peace of mind

Cryopreserving your oocytes implies taking control of the choice to become a mother. Once you cryopreserve your eggs you can relax since time will not affect them. Social, family and peer pressure that constantly reminds you that you should have children before becoming too old for it, will not affect you anymore. Furthermore, being informed about your ovarian reserve and egg quality will allow you more independence and peace of mind.

  1. Especial cases
