1 - Mind your words! The Ethics Committee of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) published new guidance in November 2018:

… Observers have criticized terms like ‘‘social egg freezing,’’ ‘‘freezing for nonmedical reasons,’’ and ‘‘elective’’ OC as trivializing and insufficiently respectful of the fact that the treatment is being undertaken to avert infertility that, if it arises, will in fact be a medical condition…. It is being undertaken as a matter of planning before a medical indication has materialized and will be referred to as ‘‘planned oocyte cryopreservation’’ or ‘‘planned OC.’’
