Egg freezing is a preservation technique that fertility doctors use when they extract several eggs from a woman's ovaries. If the woman wants to delay pregnancy, the frozen eggs can be thawed, fertilized, and implanted at a later date. After egg freezing, the eggs are stored in a controlled and secure environment. Frozen eggs can also be donated to other couples who have fertility issues. In the US, the cost of egg freezing is around $19,000. In the UK, fertility clinics may charge up to £15,000 for this service. Overseas, fertility clinics and doctors can perform the extraction and freezing process for much less.
