Elective oocyte cryopreservation: an ounce of prevention?

Elective oocyte cryopreservation: an ounce of prevention?
The World Health Organization, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, and most recently the American Medical Association rightfully recognize infertility as a disease. This has always been obvious to the patients experiencing infertility and providers who treat them, but the official acknowledgement of this condition as a disease implicitly suggests a role for prevention. Like the certainty of “death and taxes”, women face a guaranteed likelihood of infertility with advancing age. One in eight couples experience infertility, and diminished ovarian reserve and age-related embryonic aneuploidy represent significant contributing factors, which at advanced ages cannot be overcome by assisted reproductive technology (ART).
