Freezing Eggs:

Science: Typically the sperm and embryos are easy to freeze however the egg is the largest cell in the human body. Freezing eggs is the process in which a woman's eggs are removed, frozen, and stored until ready for use later in life. All women undergoing this process have to have an hormonal injection first (IVF) or in vitro fertilization. It takes about 4 to 6 weeks for an egg to completely freeze. Eggs can be frozen for years and still be valuable. 

Society: This has an impact on society because some women want to freeze their eggs at a young age since they tend to age. Other women could've been diagnosed with cancer or other health issues and want a surrogate. Some women feel freezing eggs is a good thing while other women prefer a natural birth. 

Self: Personally, I think this is a very interesting thing and a great alternative for women. Like all things it comes with it's advantages and disadvantages, but I think it's something more women should look into. After doing some research I found that women have been 65% successful with having children after freezing their eggs.
