Hey, how’s your
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.
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?
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.
