Choosing the best fertility clinic requires thorough consideration. Some criteria you should consider include fertility clinics' success rates, cost, and reviews.
The cost of egg freezing and IVF varies anywhere from $5k to $30k for one cycle in the US, depending on the clinic. We spent hours researching clinics to understand their pricing and procedures. Find transparent pricing for egg freezing and IVF.
We use and recommend published by CDC (the US national public health agency) success rates which show the percentage of successful (babies born) IVF cycles done by a fertility clinic. This is one of the most popular and unbiased ways to measure how effective the clinic is.
After the retrieval, your eggs will be analyzed by an embryologist who will select mature eggs and freeze them. A few things are very important here:
• how advanced is the equipment used in the lab? Make sure your clinic is using the latest technology (vitrification) to evaluate your eggs
• how qualified the embryologist is (years of experience and education).
Depending on your goals, you might want to go to the closest fertility clinic in your area or the one that can optimize for your budget. You can find a clinic with lower pricing just outside of your city and save thousands of dollars, especially if you are paying out of pocket.
Did they pay attention to the details of your medical history? Did they ask you about your family goals? Did they tell you how to prepare for your fertility treatment cycle? - These are just a few things to consider while evaluating a clinic. If you are uncomfortable with your first fertility clinic, we highly recommend going for another consultation with a different clinic.
Patient testimonials can give you the inside scoop on the clinic's patient service, reputation, and happy customer count.
