The Back-Up Plan

Just saw movie “The Back-Up Plan”. Was cute with a few funny lines. Can’t help but wonder if this is really the best back-up plan. Donor inseminations may work but being a single parent is tough. Other alternatives such as egg freezing (oocyte cryopreservation) may really be a better option. Costs are higher with egg freezing and it is considered experimental but a reproductive insurance policy may be just what a women is looking for when her biologic clock is thought to be ticking away. If she waits too long and is unable to use her own eggs, adoption, egg donation and embryo donation are alternatives.
