Question:Hello Doc, can you pls educate me on Egg freezing technique. Where it can be done and how much the approx cost will be ?
Answer: Hi, Egg freezing, also known as mature oocyte cryopreservation, is a method used to preserve reproductive potential in women. Eggs are harvested from your ovaries, frozen unfertilized and stored for later use. A frozen egg can be thawed, combined with sperm in a lab and implanted in your uterus in vitro fertilization. The cost of the procedure for retrieval are of eggs and freezing them is similar to an IVF procedure and may approximately cost between Rs.50,000 to Rs.1 lakh. Hope this helps.
