Single women in China can t freeze their eggs but single men can freeze their sperm

China’s National Health Commission has claimed medical risks and ethical issues are behind its ban on single women freezing their eggs. The commission’s stance has come under fire from Chinese internet users, who described the ban as discriminatory and said it deprived women of their right to have children later in life. In China, assisted reproductive technology is largely used to help married women with fertility issues. Medical regulations deny single women access to treatments for in vitro fertilisation and egg freezing offered by Chinese hospitals and agencies. However, single men are legally entitled to freeze their sperm for use at a later date.
