We are happy to answer any additional questions you may have about the process at the time of your consultation. If medically necessary, you will be fit in for a priority appointment within one week of calling the office. Information about the cost of oocyte cryopreservation can be found on our financial information page.

In addition, we encourage you to schedule a pre-consult evaluation of your follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and estradiol levels - especially if you are between the ages of 35 to 44. The test should be scheduled for the second or third day of your menstrual bleeding prior to your initial consultation with the doctor. This can be arranged by calling the doctor's assistant at the numbers listed above.

If you have frozen your eggs at another facility and would like to transfer them to NYU Langone Fertility Center, please learn more about transferring frozen specimens

Patient Orientation Sessions

Any patient undergoing an Egg Freezing (EF) cycle must attend an onsite orientation session conducted by our nursing staff before beginning treatment. If applicable, partners are encouraged to attend this session as well. To provide additional review of the information, the orientation presentation is now available for you to review online. Please note, this availability does not eliminate the need to attend an onsite session. View the presentation.
