Hey, how’s your
fertility doing?

  • Too soon, right?

    Okay, so this is the part where you and everybody else in their birth-controlling years look over your shoulders, expecting to see someone else. We get it. It’s weird to broach the subject of fertility with someone who is likely super fertile and has little if any immediate use for progeny. If anything, you are doing everything you can to NOT get pregnant! And yet, we have traveled across space and time to tell you that this is the best, most perfect time to do something on behalf of your fertility.

    Press pause.

    Why? Because human reproduction has a shelf-life. Right now your eggs are amazing. Your sperm is incredible. You are young and healthy and stretchy and so is your ability to have healthy babies. But every woman only has x-number of eggs and once you hit your mid-30s, your fertility is on the decline. Men may have unlimited sperm, but their quality diminishes as you age. So even though we are geared to spend our 20s and early 30s learning, working, and dating, our bodies are primed to make beautiful babies. Wouldn’t it be great if you could just hit the “pause” button?

    Ready when
    you are.

    If you’re like most people, your 20s and early 30s are for education-finishing, career-starting, and mate-auditioning. But our bodies disagree. They’re ready to conceive- like, yesterday. To you and your body, Prelude is saying one simple thing: You can save your future self a whole lot of future stress if you think about your fertility now. Freezing your sperm or eggs gives you all the flexibility to focus on what’s right in front of you, while keeping your options as wide open as possible. Think of us as a fertility time machine you can send to your 30- or 40-something self, full of juicy, zesty 20-something biology.

    The reality is that people who, for good and excellent and noble reasons, put off having kids into their later 30s and 40s can’t always get pregnant. Their options are limited and most of those come with a hefty price tag. We have a price tag too, of course. And there are some hoops to jump through, and some of them are pretty hoop-y. But not as hoop-y as they will be later. Your fertility is a living, breathing, moving thing. The more information you have about it, the clearer your future can be.

    Your Options

    If you are in your 20s and early 30s, the time is now. Bank your eggs or sperm when they are at their peak. Know that they are in the bank while you figure out your dream job or find your soulmate. Then, when you’re however many years older and ready, your eggs, sperm, or embryos will still be right where you left them in your peak fertility years. Do you like stats? A cryofrozen, fertilized egg has a 95 percent chance of viability. That should feel pretty liberating.

    Life Can
    Totally Begin at 40

    If you’re older than 20-something, life becomes a paradox. You know that as we age fertility rates go down. And yet since 1970, there has been a 400 percent increase in the number of first-time moms 35 and over. You finally have your life on track, but your eggs are no longer at their peak. Well, modern hurdles require modern solutions. And until we have time machines to go back to our 20s and bank eggs, women in their 40s can often conceive using screened donor eggs.

    You’ve Got
    Eggs to Give
