Vitrification Increases Viability of Frozen Eggs

In 2012, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) said egg freezing through vitrification should no longer be considered experimental.

Since that announcement, fertility specialists say they’ve seen much more interest in egg freezing. Dr. Tomer Singer, director of the Egg Freezing Program at North Shore LIJ Center for Human Reproduction, estimates that before 2012, his clinic saw about five to 10 patients interested in egg freezing per year. Now, he gets the same number of inquiries on a weekly basis.

Dr. Singer says the new process could increase interest as it is perfected and the cost comes down. Currently, the cost of egg collection can range from about $5,000 to more than $15,000, depending on where women have the procedure done and how many eggs they freeze.
