3. Anyone For Spurgling?

Is egg freezing 100% the right thing for me? How can I know for sure that I even want children? To help examine my feelings on the topic, I meet Lottie Gross, a 29-year-old woman who’s fighting to have her ‘tubes tied’, and Daily Mail columnist Liz Jones, who once admitted to stealing her partner’s sperm in a bid to have a baby. I also talk to my fertility doctor, the lovely Dr James Nicopoullos, about the science behind freezing and why it’s boomed in recent years, and I continue to take my nasal spray while waiting for my period to arrive.*This podcast is not to replace medical advice.

All you ever wanted to know (and probably a few bits that you didn’t) about egg freezing. What does it involve? What are the success rates? Will the hormones make me sad? And is it really true that a woman’s ovaries swell to the size of melons? Writer and host Sophia Money-Coutts is 35, single and having her eggs frozen. In this podcast, she shares her audio diaries of the whole process, from choosing a fertility clinic to the operation itself, along with the ups (and downs) of undergoing an emotional and hormonal procedure. She also investigates the science behind egg freezing and its rapid growth in popularity, and speaks to fertility experts and women who’ve gone through freezing about their experience of the procedure. Plus, she has the odd chat with her mum. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
