How To Snooze Your Biological Clock & Enjoy Your Life Clock
& The Two Questions You Should Ask Yourself
Thirsty & Thirty’s Skill #6: How To Snooze Your Biological Clock & Enjoy Your Life Clock
Hello thirsty friends,
We got through the week. Finally. Sometimes, it feels like we should be on survival mode given all the uncertainty. But, having a great conversation can really do wonders for your happiness and sanity. Here are three lessons I loved from the people we interviewed:
Divine Lee, a woman who froze her eggs in her 20s told me that sometimes, our life clock is not always aligned with our biological clock. You can always snooze your biological clock with the help of science! Yes, it’s expensive but consider it an investment. This is why she got to study her masters in London, went to Coachella 5x and just enjoyed life to the fullest. She had her first child at 35, then one after the other the next couple years. She is now pregnant with her third child.
Dr Aubrey was our OB-Gyne expert guest last Wednesday. Besides being bombarded with questions, she shared with us that at 34 she made a goal to be intentional at starting a family. She ended her relationship with a surgeon and met someone randomly right after who suited her timeline. Lesson learned is don’t beat around the bush. Set a goal and be clear with your intentions.
Tisha Riingen was our guest too. She shared with us the bizarre world of Hinge! Because of the pool of men she’s been meeting, she decided to undergo egg freezing in September. I certainly wish I was thinking like that when I was in my 20s. Never hurts to secure your future.
Here’s a song to cap off the week by Neil Diamond (Sweet Caroline)! Happy weekend.
5 Things You Need To Know About Egg Freezing in The Philippines
Best time to freeze your eggs is in your 20s. Or just before 35. At 35, eggs decline at a rapid pace.
In the Philippines, you can only fertilize your eggs with your husband’s sperm due to the ethical code in the Philippines. You can ship your eggs to another country though! Tisha even told us that in Singapore, egg freezing is considered a selfish act.
What’s the process like? A woman takes a daily hormone injections for 10 to 12 days. After this, she undergoes an egg extraction which takes about 30 minutes. There are minor and temporary side effects to the hormones. You may also experience being woozy after the procedure.
The cost is hefty at P250,000 to P300,000. It’s P10,000 to P12,000 for annual storage.
Ideal egg harvest are about 10 to 20 eggs.
