Texas Fertility Center Physicians Suggest that Low Fertility Rates in the U.S. Can be Combated with Egg Freezing
Date:2/20/2013

Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 20, 2013

Declining fertility rates affect a country’s ability to care for its elderly population and to continue to innovate and protect itself. According to a recent Wall Street Journal article by Jonathan V. Last on Feb 12, 2013, a fertility rate of 2.1 children per woman is necessary to maintain the standard population level. An average number above 2.1 indicates growth. Today’s fertility rate, the average number of children a woman bears over a lifetime, hovers at 1.93.

The article cites maternal age as one factor affecting the birth rate. According to Texas Fertility Center, a woman’s age has a strong impact on her ability to conceive. Female infertility rates increase as women wait too late to have children. This delay may be attributed to a woman’s desire to establish a career, or a decrease in societal pressure to have children as soon as possible. According to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (http://www.asrm.org) maternal age is the number one factor affecting fertility in the U.S., with 1 out of 7 couples having fertility issues.

Fortunately, America's fertility issues can be combated with egg freezing, says Dr. Kaylen Silverberg with Texas Fertility Center. This advanced reproductive technology enables women to delay having children—or preserve fertility—until they are ready.

About Egg Freezing at Texas Fertility Center
Texas Fertility Center reported one of the first live births from frozen oocytes (eggs) in the United States. Technology in the past did not allow eggs to be effectively frozen, because ice crystals would form during the freezing process. When the egg was thawed, it was destroyed.

“Now, thanks to more advanced technology called vitrification, you can freeze your eggs until a time of your choosing,” says Silverberg. Fertility preservation--egg freezing __title__ ]--helps women proactively preserve fertility, and protect it prior to cancer treatment.

“Our advanced egg freezing technology gives tomorrow’s mothers peace of mind, with the potential to increase American fertility rates over time. For more information, please visit http://www.txfertility.com.
