Single at 36, ALICE MANN put her fertility on ice before trying to get pregnant four years later – here, with devastating honesty, she tells the heartbreaking story every woman must read before she freezes her eggs
‘So,’ said the voice on the phone. ‘Of the seven eggs that we defrosted, only two fertilised successfully. And I’m afraid both of those are abnormal. You don’t have any embryos to transfer.’
Tears welled in my eyes. No embryos to transfer. Not one. Of the 14 eggs I had frozen four years previously, at the age of 36, and at a cost of £14,000, not a single one had produced the one thing I wanted: a baby. Devastated doesn’t begin to cover it. I knew I was a pioneer of sorts — the first woman at my clinic to attempt to get pregnant using eggs I’d frozen because I was single.
