In recent times, women have been delaying motherhood very significantly; the average age to have the first child is above 32 year old. However, reproductive health of women decreases with age, especially in the mid-thirties. This is because a woman has at birth approximately one million eggs, and as the first period appears, the number drops to about 400,000.
From here, during each menstrual cycle, about 1000 eggs are used, but only one gets mature, losing the rest of them. All that limits the reproductive capacity of women because, continuously, she will have fewer amounts of eggs and also they will have lower quality.
For this reason Vitrification of Oocytes has develop a high interest recently, not only as a technique to preserve the fertility of women who were undergoing surgery or potentially harmful treatments to her ovaries, such as radiation or chemotherapy, but also for helping women who postpone parenthood after 35, for many other reasons.
Tahe Fertility has the technology to carry out this technique, also has the right authorization from the Ministry of Health of the Region of Murcia to perform it.
