5 Pinay female celebrities who froze their eggs for future pregnancy

by | Entertainment

To become a mother is one of woman’s greatest desires in life. However, not everyone is fortunate enough to have the physical capability of bearing a child.

But thanks to science, women who have difficulty in getting pregnant can seek other medical options, one of which is oocyte cryopreservation or egg freezing.

When a woman undergoes oocyte cryopreservation or egg freezing, her egg cells are extracted, frozen and stored in an oocyte bank. These eggs will be preserved until the women is ready to get pregnant in the future.

Typically, most women freeze their eggs because they do not have partners yet. They want to preserve the fertility of their eggs just in case they found a man who can father their child later in life.

In the Philippine showbiz industry, some celebrities have also tried this procedure for varying reasons.

Ai Ai delas Alas revelead in a press conference back in September that she froze her eggs so that she will not have a problem having a baby with husband Gerald Sibayan.

TV host and blogger Sam Oh also said through a blog post that she had her eggs frozen in a clinic in Makati to ensure her chances of being a mother someday.

Fashion designer Mich Dulce on the other hand flew to Belgium to freeze her eggs for the same reason as Sam Oh.

The daughter of Dra. Vicki Belo, Cristalle, also went through the same procedure because she has been suffering from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome since she was a teenager. She also said that her age is another factor on why she decided to do it.
