An egg-freezing cycle takes 4-6 weeks to complete, typically costs $10,000, and is intended for women who want or need to delay childbearing in order to pursue career or other personal goals.
There's another form of family planning that you don't hear about quite as often, however: freezing your eggs.
And the Canadian television personality isn't the only "Bachelor" alum to freeze her eggs.
When one Twitter user posted a rumor that Bristowe and her fiancé Shawn Booth might soon be expecting after she was spotted getting her blood drawn at Bachelorette Whitney Bishoff's offices, Bristowe was quick to reveal the truth, saying that she had actually made a decision to freeze her eggs. Booth confirmed the news via Instagram with a post on Friday, March 17. "Always impressed by her strength & courage, but even more so after these past few weeks!" "I'm taking control of my future!" she explained.
Her fiancé Shawn Booth said that he is really proud of his fiancé for taking control of her future and doing what is best for herself and also empowering others.
Bristowe isn't the first member of the Bachelor franchise to freeze her eggs using Ova. "As a woman there's always pressure to have babies, and this puts my mind at ease for when IM ready".
"Five years ago they told me they didn't think that I could have kids.now I don't have to worry about that anymore and have the best backup plan in the world", Waddell shared on her Instagram. Bachelor in Paradise star Carly Wadd, who is now engaged to Evan Bass, went through the process one year ago. Bristowe and Waddell not alone either - in fact, women are now freezing their eggs more than ever, according to TIME.
She isn't the only one to have frozen her eggs.
