Transcription: 
Egg banking is a way to stop the biological clock. You are able to obtain a certain number of eggs within a particular cycle and freeze them in time. This does not negatively affect one´s ability to conceive in the future. And in fact, what it does is takes advantage of those eggs that would have otherwise been lost that month. It captures them and freezes them. The ability to conceive with those eggs is largely dictated by the age at which they were frozen. So if a young, healthy 30 year old freezes her eggs, she should have the likelihood of conceiving much like she would if she had frozen embryos as opposed to eggs which are obviously fertilized eggs at the same age.
