Affordable Egg Freezing: Explore Fertility Preservation Options with Chelsea Fertility NYC

by Chelsea Fertility NYCPosted in Fertility PreservationNovember 13th, 2014

Egg freezing is a very hot topic in the news right now. More and more women are becoming aware of their fertility options, as well as the limits that age can place on a woman’s ability to start a family. With so many women wanting to find a balance between the desire to have a child, and conceiving on their own timetable, egg freezing (fertility preservation) has become a viable and increasingly sought-after option.

There are many reasons why a woman may decide to freeze her eggs. These can be elective “social” reasons, or medical. Medical reasons for fertility preservation often involve a recent cancer diagnosis, with the patient choosing to freeze her eggs prior to chemotherapy or radiation (treatments which may undermine fertility). Other medical conditions that may indicate a need for egg freezing include early menopause or endometriosis.

Socially speaking, egg freezing is becoming increasingly mainstream. Women are able choose to freeze their eggs and take control of their reproductive future by using technology that wasn’t available for earlier generations.

Reasons for elective egg freezing can include:

  • Not yet having found the right partner
  • The desire to reach career or personal goals before having a child
  • Simply wishing to start your family at a later time in life

When a woman decides to freeze her eggs for elective reasons, she may discover that her insurance does not cover the costs of the procedure and yearly storage fees. Apple and Facebook have recently begun to cover costs associated with egg freezing, but many employers have yet to follow this lead. For those who wish to preserve their future family but also face concerns about the cost of egg freezing, Chelsea Fertility of New York City offers affordable options, as detailed below:
