Postponed pregnancies, an opportunity for women?

  Let’s face it, us students and adults have really tight schedules.  We often postpone doctor’s appointments, events, meetings with friends and much more.  Well since 2011, a lot of Taiwanese women made the choice to postpone their pregnancies and marriages to a more convenient moment in their lives.  How can they manage to do so and is it in a safe and natural way?

  In the last few years, some women in Taiwan have been calling fertility clinics and having procedures done that allow them to choose when to begin a family.  The procedure is called egg-freezing.  The success rate has been growing and it has been proven to be a safe, simple way of postponing pregnancies. It’s a 20 minute surgery and women that had it are happy with their decision.  At a cost of 2860$(US) is it a viable option for women not just in Taiwan, but all around the world? 

I believe it to be true.  Many women get pregnant before their dreams and objectives are accomplished.  They either terminate their pregnancy, which has a terrible emotional tole, or go on with their pregnancy to only regret later on what they could’ve achieved in life.  It is also a way to ensure that the family’s bloodline is secure in case of tragedy.  I also believe it is an opportunity for women everywhere to shine and live out to their expectations, but also choose the most convenient moment in their lives to have a child and begin a family.  Many women asks themselves “What if?”  . With egg-freezing on the rise, fear no more!
