Empowering Choices & futures, egg freezing embraced in Singapore!
We’re thrilled to announce that starting from 26 June 2023, the Singapore government has legalized elective egg freezing for both single and married women aged 21 to 37. This empowering development allows women to take charge of their reproductive choices and explore the possibilities of parenthood at a time that suits them best. Here’s what you need to know:
- Single and married women between the ages of 21 and 37 can now opt for elective egg freezing.
- Husbands’ consent is not required for either single or married women.
- Elective egg freezing is not covered by Medisave or eligible for subsidies. The cost will be borne by the individual.
- Should you choose to do so, you have the freedom to donate or export your frozen eggs for third-party use.
- If you plan to use your frozen eggs in Singapore for the purpose of conception, you must be legally married at the time of fertilization.
- In the case of fertilization in Singapore, your husband’s consent is required.
- If you are above the age of 37 and wish to explore egg freezing, you may appeal through IVF centers by consulting with fertility specialists. They will guide you through the process and assess your suitability for this procedure.
We understand that this may be a significant decision, and it’s crucial to consult with a qualified fertility specialist to understand the process, risks, and potential outcomes before making your choice. Your fertility specialist will provide personalized guidance based on your specific circumstances.
