This Woman Did Something Very Public and Surprising to Destigmatize the Process of Freezing Her Eggs

Although most of us would like to be in control of everything in our lives, the truth of the matter is that, most of the time, we aren't. However, Gina Lopez, a 35-year-old from New Jersey, realized she could have a hand in deciding when to have kids — instead of letting her body decide for her.

So she froze her eggs. And then did an incredible photoshoot to celebrate the journey of the decision, which she chronicled through social media updates. By being so transparent about the process and her choice, Lopez hopes to provide a safe space for women to discuss what can sometimes feel like a taboo subject.
