Hazel Leonard, Founder of The Prepared Pineapple and Fertility Educator, joins Maria Botros on the Tell Me Why podcast to explain what the egg-freezing procedure entails.

  • Having your eggs frozen is like a 'mini' IVF because it involves the first half of an IVF cycle, says Hazel.
  • Hazel: The number of eggs extracted varies, but it's not always about quantity, quality is very important.
  • Conceiving is a triangle, and each point of the triangle needs to be aligned for conception to happen, says Hazel.
  • Hazel: Women seldom think about what comes after the egg-freezing phase.
