So if you're thinking about giving yourself egg freezing as a gift on your 35th birthday, you might want to reconsider.
The price tag for egg freezing is dropping
In the past, women who wanted to freeze their eggs were up against a hefty price tag. Not only was the procedure expensive, but you then had to rent out space in a lab for your eggs to live. When you're already paying rent for an apartment, this is a major deterrent from taking the plunge.
Luckily, there are other options. Today there are fertility clinics solely devoted to egg freezing, which greatly reduces the cost. At Extend Fertility, the prices for egg freezing are half of the normal cost, making it more manageable for us hardworking ladies.
The process is minimally invasive, with few side effects
While Extend is a relatively new clinic, Mancinelli says the primary goal is to educate women about their bodies, their options, and the reality of the process.
