Hello DxD community! I’m Ase Wang. I’ll be replying to all your comments on Friday 2 November at 1 pm.

Background: I froze my eggs this year (at the age of 36) because I'm single and not planning to have a baby immediately. I also knew that I would not be able to have kids naturally due to my low egg reserves, which is why I decided to go through the painful, expensive and emotional process. Freezing my eggs allowed me to keep my options open for when I'm finally ready to embrace motherhood.
On June 29, I had 12 eggs extracted from my body and frozen, and made a video to document my journey: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vW2zyomWpBI. In Singapore, single women do not have the option to freeze their eggs, and I hope to change that by raising awareness through this video and AMA session.
Since I started sharing my journey, I’ve gotten hundreds of DMs on my Instagram from women in Singapore and all over the world, who either can’t have a baby naturally, or who’ve extracted eggs, or who don’t have enough money to do it. A lot of the stories were encouraging, and some were really sad. It has been overwhelming — I wasn’t expecting this kind of response.
