  • Foreword / Nicole Noyes -- Introduction: It is time to get our heads out of the sand and into our ovaries! -- An operator's manual: what you (may) already know: the basics of your lady bits
  • What you never learned: sex ed let you down, ladies (1. it is not as easy to get pregnant as you think ; 2. There are things about the Pill you probably have not considered ; 3. Birth control is not actually control; it is simplty ptrevention ; 4. Your gynaecologist is more than just a pill-pusher ; 5. You do have a biological clock (and it is ticking) ; 6. Guys have a biological clock yoo ; 7. Fertility is solely a women's issue)
  • What you need to ask yourself: and you need to ask these questions now (1. How old is too old for me ; 2. Do I see freezing my eggs as an insurance policy -- or a gamble? ; 3. Am I making this choice out of fear? ; 4. Am I willing to do the whole single mom thing? ; 5. Is having children really what I want?)
  • What you need to know about egg freezing: a (baker's) dozen facts about freezing your eggs (1. A brief history of egg freezing ; 2. It is a manipulation of the first half of your menstrual cycle ; 3. Whatever you do, do not start this process at an Egg Freeze party ; 4. The younger the better ; 5. It is eggspensive ; 6. You will need to embrace your inner hen ; 7. The hormones may make you, well, a tad hormonal ; 8. Egg retrieved is no walk in the park -- it ius an invasive procedure ; 9. All good things have a little risk attached ; 10. You may still be baby crazy afterward ; 11. Sometimes you do not get to have your eggs and hatch them too ; 12. Fertilisation does not guarantee success ; 13. Sometimes you wll choose not to hatch them)
  • What it's really like: a handful of fierce, brilliant women share their experiences from the egg-freezing process -- Moving forward (1. We need to acknowledge why we are delaying motherhood, so we can better plan ; 2. We need to get over the idea that motherhood completes a woman ; 3. We need to challenge our healthcare system to do better ; 4. We need to recognise that it's a man's world -- and then we need to start chipping away at that, stat.)
  • What to take with you (1. To the gynaecologist's office ; 2. To an egg-freezing consultation ; 3. From this book -- and my twisty turny journey)
