Solutions to the Aging Biological Clock!
Freezing eggs offers women planning to have children after the age of 35 the opportunity to effectively slow down the biological clock.

Extend Fertility is a company created and run by women dedicated to providing women with a way to pause the biological clock. In waiting longer to have children, many women face the real challenge of having successful, healthy pregnancies later in life. While we have made great strides in other areas, our fertility is still limited by basic biology – the biological clock generally stops ticking in our late 30’s or early 40’s. Our opportunities are endless, but our egg supply and quality are not.

Comprised of professional women in our 20’s & 30’s, the Extend team is keenly aware of the increased opportunities available to today’s women, and the conflict these opportunities can create with the reality of the biological clock and female fertility. By developing a medical solution to the ticking biological clock and effectively extending a woman’s fertility, we are proud to provide proactive women with more reproductive options than ever before. Freezing eggs offers women planning to have children after the age of 35 the opportunity to effectively slow down their biological clocks. Extend Fertility’s service gives women the unprecedented chance to store their eggs during their reproductive prime for use when they wish to start or expand their families.

A recent Extend Fertility client comments: “I feel truly amazing…Relieved! I work in the women’s health care arena so I’m constantly bombarded with the scary biological clock story. I realized last week that I was listening to yet another horrifying presentation on the perils facing future mothers over 30 and for the first time I didn’t having a panic attack! I realized that I had taken control and done what I could to ensure the best chance of having a healthy and happy baby in the future. It’s also really nice that now thinking about having a family brings a sense of excitement because it just seems like much more of a reality and not a deadline that I am terrified of missing.”

What is a woman’s natural biological clock?
When it comes to issues of fertility, it is the age of the egg, not the age of the woman that matters most. Women are born with a finite number of eggs, around 1 million. At puberty, that number has dwindled to 400,000 and subsequently approximately 750 eggs are lost each month. The eggs not only begin to diminish in quantity, but also in quality. The combination of these factors leads to a woman’s fertility beginning to decline in her 20’s and significantly deteriorating after age 35.

Oocyte Cryopreservation – Stopping the Biological Clock
By Dr. Brad Kolb, Huntington Reproductive Center and Christy Jones, CEO Extend Fertility

For decades, sperm and embryos (fertilized eggs) have been successfully frozen for the purposes of fertility preservation and donation for men and couples. Although both sperm and embryo cryopreservation have become commonplace, the freezing of unfertilized oocytes (or eggs) for similar applications in women has not historically delivered the acceptable success rates necessary to drive adoption across the board. Unlike sperm and embryos, oocytes did not survive the freeze/thaw process well primarily because the egg is the largest cell in the human body and comprised mostly of water. The water inside the cell forms ice crystals that destroy the egg during the traditional freezing process. Prior to 2002, the success rate of live births from frozen eggs was 1-3% globally, with few babies born from frozen eggs over decades of attempts.

Fortunately, a number of advances in our knowledge of oocyte physiology and laboratory techniques are rapidly changing this dream into a reality.

Huntington Reproductive Center and Extend Fertility™ to Help Women Stop the Ticking of the “Biological Clock"
“The days of the biological clock are over,” says Bradford Kolb, MD, Huntington Reproductive Center. “In the past, women were bound by the limitations of time when it came to their reproductive choices.

Now they have the option of extending their fertility by preserving their eggs at a time when they are much healthier. It’s quite remarkable.”
