By her own admission, Ridhima Pandit believes she made the best move of her life in September last year when she froze her eggs.
She claims, "I feel liberated. Freezing eggs was on my mind for a long time, and it seemed right to go ahead with it in September, as I had a month to spare between my assignments. It was a perfect window to prepare for and recuperate from it. I had the best of doctors guiding me through the procedure."
Her decision was supported by her family, especially her late mother. She said, "My family is extremely progressive and more so my mother. I remember discussing the topic with her. When I asked her if I didn't wish to get married, didn't find the right person, or was focused on work but yearned to have a child, would she be fine with me preparing for it in advance and she replied, 'Of course, just go for it and I hope you can inspire people with it.' I am proud of my decision because so many friends are going in for this procedure."
Many people have the misconception that people who prioritise their careers and lifestyle over marriage and motherhood would take such actions.
In her early 30s Ridhima states, "A woman is always inundated with these questions about how she will manage motherhood and work, but no one asks the man about it. People are ambitious irrespective of the profession, so let's not blame actresses for focusing on their careers and delayed motherhood."
The actress, who has appeared in television programmes like ‘Haiwaan,’ ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi 9,’ and ‘Bahu Humari Rajni Kant,’ believes that freezing her eggs does not indicate that she intends to put off getting married.
She shares, "I don't have a partner right now. So, it felt right to go ahead with this instead of regretting it later. The most important reason is the limited fertility period of a woman.And I don't have to feel pressured to get married to have a child. Of course, I would like to conceive naturally, too. But God forbid, if that doesn't happen, then I have this option." She further says, "I believe in marriage as an institution and would like to take the plunge someday. My 93-year-old grandmother is obsessed with me getting married (laughs!).She was in disbelief when I told her about the procedure but appreciated the medical advancement and me for taking this step."
The actress needed to watch what she ate and lead a healthy lifestyle. "I had to pop vitamin pills for a few months and hormonal injections for about 10 days before the procedure.It was a bit overwhelming on the final day when I had to take five shots together, but I knew everything was worth it. It took me over a week to bounce back to my regular life and routine," she said in the conclusion.
