Moya Sarner and her boyfriend both know they want children – just not yet. Should she join the growing number of women in their 20s considering egg freezing?

According to the NHS, around one-third of couples in which the woman is over 35 have fertility problems. This rises to two-thirds when the woman is over 40. No wonder more and more young women are looking into egg freezing: inquiries at private fertility clinics in the UK rose by more than 400% in the past year, with more than half coming from women under 35. Apple and Facebook now offer to pay for female employees to freeze their eggs as part of their benefits package. It’s starting to feel as if “investigate egg freezing” is just another thing to add to my to-do list.
