- How much does Egg Freezing cost?
The cost of egg freezing has dropped considerably since the science was first introduced. IRMS has also created significant discount packages depending on whether you’re doing one or multiple egg freezing cycles. In addition, some insurance carriers have started to cover all or part of elective egg freezing cycles. So, if egg freezing is something you’re considering doing you owe it to yourself to find out all of the financial options available.
- What are its success rates?
Because freezing techniques have advanced significantly , pregnancy rates from frozen eggs are equal to pregnancy rates from frozen embryos. It really doesn’t get much better than that!
- When should I begin the oocyte cryopreservation (egg freezing) process?
If you are interested in having a family but are not ready to conceive and are age 30 or beyond, it’s reasonable to schedule an initial consult for an Egg Freezing cycle now . The success of egg freezing is directly related to the age at which you freeze your eggs, so the older you are the faster you should consider initiating a cycle. Even if the egg freezing process itself is not covered by your insurance plan there is very high likelihood that at least your initial consult will be covered.
- How long will my eggs stay frozen?
Your eggs are frozen through a process called vitrification (the state-of-the-art in egg freezing). Consider it an instantaneous freezing process. Because your eggs are frozen at such a low temperature all cellular activity has halted. So, there is no deterioration of your eggs. In short, they can be frozen indefinitely.
