Stars who have frozen their eggs – Nicki Swift

Olivia Munn opened up about freezing her eggs during an interview for the Anna Faris is Unqualified podcast in 2016, saying that she did it because her friend found out she "had the egg count of a 50-something-year-old woman." Munn decided to visit a doctor herself, and while she was told she has "a lot of eggs," she was also told that she might as well freeze some of them so that she would always have them available.

The star also talked about turning 35, saying that's when "you're high risk." However, "many doctors are quick to discount the belief that age 35 always and instantly draws a line between a healthy pregnancy and a high-risk one," according to Self. Indeed, Sarah J. Kilpatrick, M.D., Ph.D., chair of the department of obstetrics and gynecology at Cedars-Sinai, told Self, "I would never tell someone that just because she's 35 she has to see a high-risk doctor only if there's something in her history or something that happened during her pregnancy that warrants it."

That may be true, but Munn clearly still feels confident in her decision. "I think that every girl should do it. ... [For] one, you don't have to race the clock anymore. You don't have to worry about it," she told the former Mom star and podcast host. "Doomsday is now like 'whatevers day,' because I am prepared."
