Ellen Rose

My name is Ellen Rose. I’m 35 years old and live in Washington, DC. I work in broadcast and digital production for a news network and am completely obsessed with avocados and guacamole. I started to think about egg freezing in January 2018, but wasn’t completely ready. I sat on the ideas for over a year and in June 2019, I took action and called my employee benefits contact to register and get the process started again.

I had my first consultation on July 5th, 2019 and started taking injections on August 29, 2019. I did 10 days of injections and 10 eggs were retrieved on September 9, 2019. Of the 10, 8 mature eggs were frozen and I was thrilled. My doctor originally predicted I would get just 7 or 8 retrieved. The whole experience was incredibly empowering and I feel so lucky that I had amazing work benefits that covered most of the procedure and medicine. I would encourage any woman who wants a family to consider egg freezing. And if you have a work benefit? Complete no-brainer! I have a second-round covered and am considering doing it in December 2019.
