The Benefits and Costs of Egg Freezing

Egg freezing is an ideal way to preserve a woman’s fertility until she is ready to start a family.  Biologically, women are most fertile from their teenage years until age 35.  At age 35, a woman’s fertility decreases significantly as does the quantity and quality of her eggs.  Egg freezing allows women to harvest eggs when they are their healthiest and store them for future use.  This allows women to focus on what is important to them now without jeopardizing their ability to start a family in the future.

There are several advantages to freezing eggs:

  • The peace of mind knowing that waiting to start a family is ok
  • Having banked eggs that are frozen when they are healthiest and best suited for fertilization and pregnancy
  • The ability to focus on what is important now

New Hope Fertility Center has an advanced egg freezing and storage program.  Through the use of vitrification, a state of the art freezing method, New Hope is able to have success rates that are substantially higher than traditional methods.  During a fertility preservation cycle, patients undergo the following:

  • Regular monitoring through the use of blood work and ultrasound
  • Fertility medication to promote the maturation of multiple eggs
  • Retrieval of the eggs during an outpatient procedure
  • Follow up appointment to ensure the body is healing correctly
  • Freezing and storage of healthy eggs
