When you are doing your research on egg freezing costs, you will find many different articles quoting many different prices. One recent article quotes the price as $15,000 to $25,000. Other articles may quote lower or higher prices.
Essentially, egg freezing will definitely be thousands of dollars. It is an investment and should be evaluated as such. Remember, the definition of investment is: "a thing that is worth buying because it may be profitable or useful in the future."
Investments have risks and rewards. As with any investment, the first thing to do is find the provider where you feel comfortable and one who will answer your questions and walk you through the process.
Ask questions before you invest in egg freezing:
- Am I young enough for this investment in egg freezing to be worth my while? Or, at my age, would I have more success getting pregnant as soon as possible?
- If I meet the right partner in the next year or so and I'm ready to have children, will this investment have been worth my while?
- Can I afford to freeze my eggs?
- Can you break down every detail of the cost in your egg freezing package?
- Are you affiliated with financing programs that can be used for egg freezing? What are the intereest rates?
- What is your success rate with egg freezing and live births from frozen eggs? At my age and with my health history, what is my success rate likely to be?
- What can I do to improve my chances in having a successful egg freezing procedure and improve the likelihood of a successful live birth in the future?
