It is a strategy which is commonly used in unmarried young women who are not planning for marriage in near future due to various reasons like career considerations, not able to get the “right man”, but wish to preserve their fertility etc. It is indicated in such scenarios since the egg numbers keep declining with age and so, after 30 years age, it becomes important for giving this as an option in this group of patients. It is also used for medical indications like young women or girls who have been recently diagnosed with cancer and have to undergo treatment for the same.
