Olivia Munn wants you to freeze your eggs

Olivia Munn wants to be pregnant someday—but she knows that, as a 35-year-old woman, she’s now considered to be high-risk when that time comes. So, a few years ago, the actress froze “a bunch of eggs,” she told Anna Faris on her podcast, Anna Faris is Unqualified.

“I turned 35 and then there, you’re high risk,” she says. After her same-aged friend visited a doctor and found out she had “the egg count of a 50-year-old woman,” Munn decided to take precautions to ensure she’d someday be able to get pregnant. “It’s no longer on the experimental list,” she says. (And she’s right.) “I think every girl should do it.” Every girl who has roughly $10K to get the procedure, that is.

Should more women consider freezing their eggs? Munn offered up three reasons they absolutely should.

1. You don’t have to race the clock anymore.

“You don’t have to worry about it. You don’t have to worry about your job or anything. It’s there,” she says. “I see so many going through in-vitro [fertilization] later…and they’re struggling and struggling. It’s like, well, we have this option.”

2. It guards against medical issues.

“I’ve known girls in their late 20s who get cancer, then have to go through treatment and they don’t have any eggs after that,” Munn says. “You just don’t know what’s going to happen medically.”

3. You can start a new family in your 40s.

“God forbid you’re in a relationship and you ever divorce,” Munn says, “but a lot of times women are 45, a couple kids, they get divorced. The guy goes off and meets a younger girl who wants to have kids, and he can have a whole new family, and you’re right there.”

Faris jokingly referred to Munn’s plan as a “doomsday approach” to having children. Munn’s response? “Now doomsday is whatever day, because I’m prepared,” she says. “Why not do it?”
