When comparing clinics, patients should know what each charges for of an egg freezing cycle but it is complicated to forecast the cost because a cycle can progress in a variety of different ways. More significantly, different clinics have different philosophies on what they choose to include in their egg freezing cycle costs and what additional items they say patients can, or must, add. The total cost can end up being hugely different from the cycle price initially advertised.
Here at Concept, our philosophy is to keep things simple; we rarely advise patients to take any add-ons because we think they are often not necessary, not proven, or are unlikely to improve the final result. We appreciate that patients often want to know what else they can do to improve their chances but often the best advice is to understand the statistics and add an additional simple cycle, rather than pay for a selection of expensive, irrelevant, extras. This allows us to give a reasonably accurate forecast of the total cost of an egg freezing cycle at Concept Fertility.
It is important to know this when looking at costs because anything outside a cycle is usually charged as an additional item. A cycle starts on “day 1” which is when menstruation starts, and lasts until the day of planned egg freeze.
