What is included in the cost of egg freezing?
The cost of egg freezing and long-term storage is approximately $7,000.00. This amount reflects the national average cost of fertility preservation for women. Our San Antonio egg freezing specialists realize that many women are surprised by this number, so they explain what is included in this figure.
- The first step of egg freezing involves fertility medications and monitoring appointments. These medications encourage a woman’s body to produce multiple eggs, and the monitoring appointments are necessary to assess a woman’s response to the medications and determine when she is ready for egg retrieval.
- The second step is the egg retrieval procedure. During this step, a woman comes to our San Antonio fertility center for a quick outpatient procedure under light sedation. The cost includes the time spent by the fertility specialist, nurses and anesthesiologist, the use of the surgery center and the cost of anesthesia and other medications.
- The third step is egg freezing. Embryologists freeze the eggs and ship them to the Ovation Fertility™ storage facility, where the eggs are monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The cost of egg freezing and long-term storage at Ovation Fertility are included in this step.
When considering egg freezing costs, it’s important to remember that a woman will have to pay to have an embryologist thaw her eggs and fertilize them with sperm before a fertility specialist transfers the resulting embryo to her uterus.
