8. Eggs v Embryos: The Debate

Freezing Time

Society & Culture

This week, I delve deeper into the tricky question of whether I should freeze embryos or eggs. Dr James takes me through the success rates of both and American writer Briallen Hopper tells me about how freezing embryos impacted her dating life. Meanwhile, the European director of the world’s biggest sperm bank reveals why so many British women seek sperm from Denmark, and Sally tells me about her experience with a Danish sperm bank. I also chat to a sperm donor about how the donating process actually works (and why it’s nothing like the comedy scenes in the movies). As I’m deliberating all this, I bloat like the Michelin Man and finally get to take the trigger injection which prompts my ovaries to get ready for my operation. *This podcast is not to replace medical advice.
