Egg freezing provides women with an option for preserving their fertility. This way, women can focus on other areas of their lives and can start a family on their own terms. Understanding the cost of freezing eggs can help you determine if egg freezing is an ideal way for you to preserve your fertility.
New Hope Fertility Center is an industry leader in the field of fertility preservation. Their use of the freezing method of vitrification creates high success rates for the freezing and thawing process. Vitrification is a method of flash freezing eggs that prevents the formation of ice crystals. Ice crystals are devastating to an egg. This can be seen in the success rates for surviving the freezing and thawing process. When traditional methods are used, the survival rate is 55 percent. When vitrification is used, the survival rate is 98 percent.
Cost of Egg Freezing
There are several things that combine to make the cost of freezing eggs:
Monitoring and retrieval
Typically, fertility centers charge a set rate for an egg banking cycle. At New Hope, the cost is $6,400. This fee includes:
- Follicle count
- Egg retrieval under local anesthetic
- Freezing of eggs using vitrification
- A thorough review of the cycle with your doctor or nurse
- Monitoring throughout the cycle
- Six months of egg storage
Fertility medication can play a large role in the cost of egg banking. During an egg banking cycle, fertility medication is administered to push a woman’s body to produce multiple eggs. The number of eggs produced during this cycle directly effects the number of eggs a woman will have available when she is ready to start a family. Depending on a woman’s needs, the cost of fertility medication can be up to $1,500 per cycle.
The egg freezing cycle includes six months of egg storage. After the initial period, the cost to store eggs is $1,200 per year.
