Many young women today are told to freeze their eggs “as insurance,” so that in case after (assuming) they get a high-paying career, buy a home, and do all of the “traveling” and “self discovery” touted today, they will get married and have a child. If they are too old, than they can just unfreeze their eggs and they can conceive. However, that does not always work, as a major fertility business founder did just this and realized with not just her, but with more than HALF of the women who pay for the expensive treatments, that it does not work:
Brigitte Adams caused a sensation four years ago when she appeared on the cover of Bloomberg Businessweek under the headline, “Freeze your eggs, Free your career.” She was single and blond, a Vassar graduate who spoke fluent Italian, and was working in tech marketing for a number of prestigious companies. Her story was one of empowerment, how a new fertility procedure was giving women more choices, as the magazine noted provocatively, “in the quest to have it all.”
Adams remembers feeling a wonderful sense of freedom after she froze her eggs in her late 30s, despite the $19,000 cost. Her plan was to work a few more years, find a great guy to marry and still have a house full of her own children.
Things didn’t turn out the way she hoped.
In early 2017, with her 45th birthday looming and no sign of Mr. Right, she decided to start a family on her own. She excitedly unfroze the 11 eggs she had stored and selected a sperm donor.
Two eggs failed to survive the thawing process. Three more failed to fertilize. That left six embryos, of which five appeared to be abnormal. The last one was implanted in her uterus. On the morning of March 7, she got the devastating news that it, too, had failed.
Adams was not pregnant, and her chances of carrying her genetic child had just dropped to near zero. She remembers screaming like “a wild animal,” throwing books, papers, her laptop — and collapsing to the ground.
“It was one of the worst days of my life. There were so many emotions. I was sad. I was angry. I was ashamed,” she said. “I questioned, ‘Why me?’ ‘What did I do wrong?’ ”
In an age when egg freezing has become so popular that hip employers such as Apple and Facebook cover it as a perk and grandparents help finance the procedure like they might a down payment for a house, there’s surprisingly little discussion about what happens years later when women try to use them. Fertility companies tend to advertise egg freezing — “oocyte cryopreservation” — in scientific terms, as something that can “stop time.” And many women believe they are investing in an insurance policy for future babies.
But the math doesn’t always hold up. On average, a woman freezing 10 eggs at age 36 has a 30 to 60 percent chance of having a baby with them, according to published studies. The odds are higher for younger women, but they drop precipitously for older women. They also go up with the number of eggs stored (as does the cost). But the chance of success varies so wildly by individual that reproductive specialists say it’s nearly impossible to predict the outcome based on aggregate data.
A number of Adams’s friends were also early adopters of egg freezing; today they are facing a similar reckoning.
Around the age of 35, women confront a “fertility cliff,” when the chances of becoming pregnant decline sharply as the eggs decrease in number and quality. By age 40, the average woman has a 5 percent chance of getting pregnant in any given month. By 45, it’s 1 percent.
In an unfortunate and unfair twist of nature, men are believed to replenish their sperm at a rate of 1,500 a second through most of their lives; there are documented cases of men remaining fertile into their 90s. Age also affects the quality of sperm, according to numerous studies. But the effect on fertility is markedly less dramatic than in women.
Thus the need for “social” egg freezing as it exists today, and why more and more women are willing to pay $10,000 to $16,000 per retrieval cycle, plus hundreds of dollars in yearly storage fees, to put their eggs on ice. While there are no comprehensive national statistics, the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology, which represents the majority of fertility clinics in the United States, found in its latest survey that the number of women freezing their eggs is skyrocketing — from 475 in 2009 to nearly 8,000 in 2015.
The procedure is growing rapidly in popularity: Gina Bartasi, the former chief executive at fertility benefits company Progyny, predicts that as many as 76,000 women could elect to freeze their eggs this year. (source)
Across the western world, the documentation in the decline of relations between men and women is everywhere. Women have been sold the idea that they will “live forever” thanks to advances in science and technology so that, just as the founder of this egg-freezing company said, they can “have it all” and not have to worry about being 40 years old, unmarried, and with no children.
However, actions all have consequences. Sometimes those consequences can be changed or mitigated, but not always. It is a great lie of the current times that through technology and “innovation” that the world can be absolutely bent to man’s liking.
The idea that the natural cycle of fertility could be permanently interrupted is very new, for until about 1970 it was impossible. Women understood that they either had to get married/have children, or that they would be childless because there is a set time in which they are able to bear children. By interrupting this natural process, it has resulted in a system where women feel they are in perpetual control and are able to now dictate their standards to men and expect them to obey or else they will not marry or sleep with them. This is further reinforced by social rules that give favor to women with an understanding from another time, that most will not be able to provide for themselves when the reality is they are able to now and have transformed the system into a method to extract resources from men using the government as their enforcement device.
The proof of both of these changes comes from the dating applications, prostitution culture, and the divorce culture in the USA.
Dating apps such as Tinder are FILLED with women who are seeking sex from men and are dictating standards of what they want from men and expecting them to obey. If they do not comply, then they will not sleep with them. The result is the creation of a system where a large number of women seek the “best” men (per their imaginations) for sex, which are mostly men seeking sex only without commitment. Men who would be interested in marrying them are locked out of the dating market or forced to take “leftover” women who have slept many times with dozens of men.
A second consequence is the rise of the prostitution culture. We have written about this at Shoebat.com before, for as women realize that they can trade their youth and sexuality for money (as they have always done) but this time without the sense of consequences, women actively are seeking out rich men to sleep with and engage in highly disturbing sexual activities for money. Likewise, these men are not interested in marrying them and the men who actually would consider marrying these women are forced to take them after they have been used as sex toys by many times dozens of other men.
The final consequence is the rise of the divorce culture. This hits men the hardest because men who get married are at the mercy of the divorce laws, which absolutely favor women to the detriment of men. Over 70% of divorces are filed by women, and many times the women who file the divorces from these men already have had many sexual partners before getting married. Since divorce cases can take not just a man’s assets but his future assets as settlements are based on what a judge thinks a man COULD earn versus his actual income, men could lose everything, be reduced to poverty, and even be sent to prison for being unable to pay more than what is earns or is able to earn.
It is without a doubt that America and most of the Western world has become a gynocracy, and the result of this has been the death of the family. Men no longer want to get married to women and have either adopted the approach of “players” and seek short-term sexual liaisons, will live with women but refuse to marry them, or simply go their own way and not seek women at all as part of the MGTOW movement.
Women as a result have continued to demand more “rights”, saying that men need to “do their fair share” while demanding more for themselves, and it has only fueled the hatred between the sexes. This is seen with the rise of the “third wave” feminism and is promotion of “sluttery”. Some men have even joined these women in standing up for “women’s rights” by promoting this degenerate language and behavior.
But most men don’t want one of these three options. Most men want to get married to a nice girl, to get a home, and to go to a job where they come home with a sense of purpose and dignity to a wife who loves them and children. They want to live normal lives like most people throughout history have.
But they can’t. Yes, there are many men who have developed different forms of parasitical and pathological behaviors today, but these are not inherent to them. They are the effects of living in a degenerate society in which natural desires have been criminalized and modified to such a point that attempting to live a normal life is almost not possible anymore. In fact, it has come to a point where asking a woman out could get a man in legal trouble, and if she says yes, she may not even care, and is just looking to get you to pay for a free meal for her.
It is easy to complain about “angry young men” joining nationalist movements, and as we at Shoebat.com have pointed out, these movements are leading to a war and genocide. However, they are rooted in the failure of Generation X and primarily, the Boomers and Silent Generation to address the issues of the times and raise their children properly. By encouraging women to try to become like men and then have government support this policy, the women have used their positions to extract unlimited resources from men without regard to future consequences just as a parasite draws from its host even if it kills the host.
The nationalist movements attract these men because their parents, churches, schools, and other people who raised them did not do their jobs. These nationalists ALSO do not care about them, but they have been able to harness their anger and by simply saying what most people refused to discuss, have been able to use facts to sell their philosophy to men earnestly looking for an answer.
God created men and women equal and dignity but not in function. Men are not women and women are not men, and while there will always be tensions and differences between the sexes, the feminization of society has come at the expense of men who are being legally and socially barred from assuming their natural roles as the heads of society while women are abandoning their role as the heart of a society trying to take the place of men and then attempting to figure out how they can fit children into this.
The results have worked as well as the woman who said that preserving eggs for women to have kids when their fertility is almost gone. It is very expensive, most of the time it does not work, and results in a bunch of miserable, unhappy people and a lost future that could have been were it not for selfishness. This is being reproduced across all of society, except the brokenness this time will be met by rebellion that will seek a return to greatness through the shedding of the blood of all who they believe caused this situation to arise.
