The dream of parenthood doesn’t have an age limit anymore. Thanks to incredible advancements in medicine, building a family can be a reality at any stage of your life. Egg freezing offers a chance to hit pause on your biological clock, a chance to hold on to the cherished dream of parenthood for when the time is right. 

However, many women choose to preserve their fertility in their 40s. 

While this is technically possible, it’s crucial to be aware of the medical recommendations and risks associated with this decision. Family Aims recognizes that the decision to become parents after the age of 40 is an important and courageous choice.

Egg and sperm freezing, how effective is it?

At Family Aims, we are aware of the challenges of fertility preservation. 

That’s why we offer personalized advice to each patient, taking into account their wishes and expectations. One of the alternatives for fertility preservation is egg and sperm freezing.

In the first procedure, for example, the results of egg freezing may vary and the number of viable eggs obtained may be lower in women over 40 years of age. 

Likewise, although there are fewer variables, the quality of a man’s semen may decline over time, as well as the development of other types of conditions that put his fertility at risk.

Age also increases the risk of chromosomal abnormalities in embryos, which can lead to special conditions for newborns. This is because, as the years go by, eggs are more likely to have difficulties during meiosis, which is the cell division that produces eggs.

In Family Aims we care about the family in a long-term projection, and we try to take into consideration all the variables that may arise to assist couples in more conscious family planning.

Alternative methods to preserve fertility

What can we do? In some cases, several cycles of vitrification (freezing the eggs) may be required to obtain a sufficient number of good-quality eggs. In addition, if fertilization is achieved, preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) may be required to confirm the embryo’s health prior to the transfer to the uterus.

In certain cases, these procedures can be exhausting and difficult for the parents to carry out. Therefore, we believe it is important to include the alternative of surrogacy, which avoids certain health risks for mothers and newborns. At the same time, it allows the dream of forming a family to become a reality.

Surrogacy also involves emotional challenges, so our agency is especially dedicated to contacting you with the best experts in psychological support who accompany you throughout the process.

Our goal is to provide you with clear, accurate, and personalized information, as well as to offer you the options to fit your needs from the best clinics and the best experts to provide you with high quality services and confidence.

We empower you to make informed decisions about your reproductive future. That’s why we strive to accompany you in this process and offer you all the necessary tools and contacts to help you make your family dream come true.

Challenges and opportunities

The maturity that accompanies this stage of life of assuming parenthood after forty translates into greater emotional and financial stability, which can be a favorable factor in raising a child. In addition, many parents at that age have a stronger support network and a clearer perspective on their priorities in life. However, being aware of the biological and medical challenges that can arise as age advances is crucial.

At Family Aims, we are committed to providing the guidance and support needed to overcome these challenges, ensuring that each step toward parenthood is informed and safe.
