Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEW YORK - May 29, 2019 - Freezing eggs has become an increasingly popular practice among young women who are interested in starting their families later in life. And New York City’s New Hope Fertility Center is helping lead the efforts to make the egg freezing process more accessible and affordable for all those who want to pursue it.
Egg freezing is a process wherein eggs are retrieved from a patient and then cryopreserved to maintain health and viability. All cell changes are stopped while eggs are frozen so that a woman’s eggs stay in their current healthy state until she desires to use them. Women may choose to preserve their fertility for a wide range of personal reasons, or due to medical reasons such as the pursuit of cancer treatment.
The specialists at New Hope Fertility Center rely on vitrification, an egg freezing process where eggs are flash frozen instead of being frozen slowly. The major benefit of vitrification is that by rapidly freezing the egg instead of going through a slow freeze process, there is a greatly reduced chance of the formation of ice crystals. Ice crystals—which form due to an egg’s high water content—can cause damage to cell structures over time and lead to eggs being less viable when they come out of cryopreservation. Vitrification mitigates this risk and leads to increased egg freezing success rates.
Making Egg Freezing More Affordable
When it comes to freezing eggs, cost is often the first barrier that comes to mind. And while some New York fertility centers charge as much as $17,000 for egg freezing, New Hope Fertility Center doesn’t believe that a high price tag is necessary for superior service.
New Hope provides women with some of the most competitive egg freezing costs in the country as part of an effort to make fertility preservation more accessible for those who are interested in it. Not only do they provide a free consultation, but the egg freezing cost at New Hope Fertility also starts only at $3,500 along with 6 months of free storage.
