Secure™ A New Deal for Egg Freezing
Many women are delaying starting a family, while they pursue careers or other lifegoals, or have yet to find the right person to share their life. As female fertility declines steadily after the age of 30, egg freezing has become an option for fertility preservation, preferably before the age of 35.
Some eggs do not survive during the freezing and thawing processes – even with the latest vitrification techniques employed by CRGH – and not every fertilised egg progresses to become a viable embryo. While it is not scientifically clear how many eggs are required, we recommend freezing a minimum of 20 eggs. This often means two or three cycles of stimulation, which can make the cost of egg freezing challenging for women to bear.
Secure™ is a new offering from CRGH, which significantly reduces the cost of egg freezing for multiple cycles.
|CRGH egg freezing cycle (excluding medication and tests)||£ 2,995|
|Secure2™ (two cycles excluding medication and tests, but including the first year of storage)||£ 4,895|
|Secure3™ (three cycles excluding medication and tests, but including the first year of storage)||£ 5,495|
How do I access the scheme?
Just tell your doctor when you agree the treatment plan or speak to the finance team once you receive your cost estimate.
What if I prepay for a three-cycle package but only need one or two?
We will refund the difference for any unused cycles
How long can I leave it between treatment cycles?
There is no time limit in terms of accessing a cycle you have paid for, but your doctor will highlight how fertility declines with age, and a significant delay can affect the quantity and quality of eggs collected.
What is the age limit for this scheme?
There is no upper age limit for this scheme, but your doctor may advise against egg freezing on clinical grounds, which may be associated with age.
Can I pay for one cycle but then join the scheme if I need a second?
No – cycle packages must be booked in advance, but we will refund the difference if you need fewer cycles than you have purchased
Which package should I purchase?
Seek the advice of your CRGH doctor, but in financial terms the Secure3™ is the most cost-effective package. Any unused cycles will be refunded.
