WOULD-BE mothers are putting their eggs into deep freeze as they search for Mr Right and concentrate on their careers.
Single career women are thinking ahead and storing their eggs for lifestyle rather than medical reasons.
The technology to remove healthy eggs and freeze them indefinitely has been available in Australia for about six months.
Queensland Fertility Group's Dr Warren DeAmbrosis said about 30 women had so far frozen their eggs.
The procedure is also used for medical reasons such as women undergoing cancer treatment or early menopause.
"Most of the women doing this are in their early to mid 30s who haven't found the right man and realise they are running out of time," Dr DeAmbrosis said.
"Or maybe they have found the right man but are in a career situation and are not ready to have kids.
