It was International Women’s Day earlier this week. This ITV news article discusses the issues of egg freezing law in the UK.
Currently egg freezing can only be carried out on the NHS if it’s for medical reasons. Women wanting the procedure for so-called social reasons can only have their eggs frozen for 10-years. Campaigners say the law has to catch up with science.
Dr. Carole Gilling-Smith. Medical Director at The Agora Clinic explains how the law originally came about, and supports the view that it is time to change egg freezing law in the UK.
