Why choose egg freezing (fertility preservation)?

Egg freezing (oocyte cryopreservation) offers hope to many planning or the future creation of a family.

Many people are waiting till later in life to start their families. However, age is a leading determinant and hindrance of fertility. Fertility in women is greatest between the ages of 20 and 28 years of age. In addition, by the age of 35, a woman’s chance of conceiving per month is decreased by half; by age 45, the natural fertility rate per month is as low as 1%.

At Advanced Fertility Care we are proud to offer egg freezing to women up to age 38 who are interested in this service, presuming that their ovarian function is not already compromised.

Advancements in Egg Freezing

Oocyte cryopreservation has become more prevalent in recent years since methods for egg (oocyte) vitrification (rapid freezing) improved greatly and success rates for eggs surviving the freezing process have increased. The American Society for Reproductive Medicine no longer considers it an experimental procedure and it has become increasingly popular for those wishing to be proactive in their family planning and freeze their eggs to build their family at a later time.

Egg Freezing Success Rates

Recent data suggests overall oocyte survival after vitrification and warming ranged between 90%-97%, fertilization rates were between 71%-79%, implantation rates were 17%-41%, and clinical pregnancy rates per transfer ranged from 36%-61%.

The overall success rate depends on several factors:

What Is the Egg Freezing Process?

As with anyone wishing to undergo IVF, the process of fertility preservation begins with a consultation with Drs. Zoneraich or Larsen. Once the consultation is complete, the doctor will proceed with a similar diagnostic evaluation as would be required of any woman wishing to undergo IVF with some few exceptions. Once the diagnostic evaluation is completed confirming a woman’s eligibility based on ovarian reserve testing, the patient will then undergo the IVF stimulation process up to and including the egg retrieval. After the eggs are retrieved, the IVF laboratory will vitrify and store them for the patient’s future use. The entire process from screening to freezing will usually occur within two months from initial consultation.

Egg Freezing Costs

The cost for egg freezing (fertility preservation) takes into account that no embryo transfer is performed. However, the techniques and supplies needed to vitrify eggs in the laboratory do add a great deal of embryologist time and expense to the process. The price of IVF with oocyte vitrification for fertility preservation is $6,500 not including the cost of medication, however, this may be subject to change in the future.

Testimonial 04

"My wife and I have been trying for over six years to start a family, starting with trying naturally of course, IUI, IVF, and 3 transfers prior to meeting with Dr.Z and the Advanced Fertility team. We wanted to give it one more shot and were lucky enough to have a family friend offer to be a carrier, as well as try one more time with my wife as well. We felt very comfortable right off the bat. We had worked with 2 other fertility centers in Phoenix and Scottsdale prior. This team made us feel welcome and laid out a game plan and set our expectations and were very clear and realistic. Our wait times were non existent compared to another major facility where we did our first IVF, their avg wait 30-60 mins. We were not sold or told that they guaranteed to fill our house with kids like we heard verbatim at other establishments."

Testimonial 03

"We wanted to introduce you to our little miracle baby girl. She has blessed us in so many ways already. We want to say thank you to everyone at the office. You were all great during every step. You made IVF seem not so intimidating and then when we found out we were pregnant between treatments you were with us from the beginning until we saw her little heartbeat on ultrasound. A “BIG” thank you to Dr Z. You are great and so personable. You all can expect to see us again in a year or so."

Testimonial 01

"We’ve been on our infertility journey since 2009. Advanced Fertility Care is the 4th fertility Drs office we went to. We LOVE them! I will never go anywhere else. They are the whole package. In our early experiences with other offices, we found the hands off approach frustrating. We saw Drs at consultations but all treatments and ultrasounds were done by nurse practitioners. Decisions were frequently made by nurse practitioners. We thought this was normal care – it’s not! I have never been seen by a nurse practitioner at Advanced Fertility Care."
