Female Biological Clock

Our female fertility services are designed to help women safeguard their younger, healthier eggs for the time when they are ready to start their families. The female fertility service effectively slows the biological clock and increases the chances of having a genetically-linked child after 40. Having the option to proactively plan for future motherhood is expected to appeal to a broad range of women – from cancer patients facing chemotherapy and women facing family histories of female fertility problems, to single, professional women and couples starting their families later in life.

“For the first time, women seeking female fertility options can now take proactive measures to protect their future fertility,” said Christy Jones, founder and CEO, Extend Fertility. “It is our mission to help these women address the ever-growing disconnect between the readiness to have children and the biological limitations of aging eggs.”

Eggs are the key to female fertility. Female fertility and egg quality peak around the age of 27 and begin to decline in a woman’s 30s. While a woman is physically able to carry a pregnancy to term well into her forties, the quality of the eggs produced by a woman’s ovaries begins to significantly decline starting around the age of 35. A 40 year old woman has less than a 10 percent chance of having a successful pregnancy using her own eggs, compared to approximately 30 percent at her natural peak fertility.

Older eggs also run a much higher risk – about 10 times higher – of chromosomal defects which can lead to conditions, such as Down’s syndrome, in children. As a result, women often spend an average of more than $50,000 on infertility treatments or as much as $50,000 to secure donor eggs in order to have children.

Our female fertility technology leverages recent female fertility advancements in oocyte cryopreservation science and enables women who have previously frozen their eggs to improve their pregnancy rate to between 20 and 30 percent, and use their own eggs for that pregnancy.

Extend Fertility partners with top affiliate fertility centers to offer a nationwide female fertility network where women can go to have their eggs harvested and preserved. Extend and it’s top centers provide women with the best available science, medical service, storage technology and female fertility education.
