What is egg freezing?

Egg freezing is a process in which eggs are retrieved from the ovaries and preserved for future use. You may choose to delay parenthood for any number of reasons, whether it’s professional goals, family medical history, or simply a desire to have a child later in life. Egg freezing can also be a valuable resource for those undergoing medical treatments that can impact fertility.

Is egg freezing right for me?

Egg freezing is an option that gives you autonomy over your own fertility timeline. We typically recommend freezing before the age of 40, with the late 20s to late 30s being the best time to freeze. That being said, every patient is unique, and we are happy to meet to discuss your options.

Freezing your eggs before undergoing medical treatments or procedures that impact fertility can also be a valuable option for those who want to preserve their fertility while caring for their own health. Your doctor or oncologist can call us at 858-794-6363 to begin discussing your unique needs.

Egg freezing success with SDFC

Egg freezing success depends on the age you freeze your eggs and the number of eggs that are frozen. If you are under the age of 35 with 20+ eggs frozen, success rates can exceed 70%. Your doctor will give you more specific success rates depending on your unique situation.

Paying for egg freezing

Though coverage for fertility care varies widely by insurance plan, the good news is that more and more companies are including fertility treatment in employee benefits. Elective egg freezing is often not covered by insurance, but may be included if considered medically necessary to preserve fertility because of a procedure or treatment for an illness.
