Women are being encouraged to settle for Mr Not-Quite-Right, rather than freezing their eggs and waiting for Mr Perfect.
The advice comes from Melbourne IVF specialist Gab Kovacs.
He says while the technology is still improving, the rate of successful births from egg freezing is low.
Professor Kovacs thinks women should be working harder to find a partner or changing their criteria.

He suggests there may be no Mr Right, meaning you have to settle for Mr Not-Too-Bad.
Gab Kovacs says there's no such thing as a perfect person for anybody, and even if they're perfect now, they won't be perfect in five or 10 years' time.
