New research on IVF techniques

Posted: Updated:

(NBC News) - An option tonight for women who want to have children, but who may want to wait until later in life.

There's a choice that's becoming more common and tonight, the nation's fertility doctors are giving it their stamp of approval.

the American society for reproductive medicine said egg freezing is no longer experimental, but should be considered a routine fertility treatment.

Without egg freezing women near or past 40 can often only have children through in vitro fertilization with eggs donated by others. But the new opinion says egg freezing is now an even more viable option because eggs can be frozen without using water.

Frozen eggs also have a similar success rate when compared with eggs straight from a patient.
