Take out insurance… freeze your assets
If you are not ready to have a baby or have not yet found Mr Right, you might want to consider freezing your eggs. The procedure will set you back around R28 600, plus an annual storage charge from Rl 200.
Success rates of IVF treatment using frozen eggs have been questioned in the past, Celebrity Makeup Secrets but new procedures have led to significant improvements. The success rate with frozen eggs is now around 35% compared to 8% using the older methods, says Dr Anna Carby.
The reason for the increased success rates is a new procedure called vitrification. This is a rapid way of freezing the egg so there is no crystal formation, says Paul Serhal. In addition, a technique called intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is used in some cases, for example, where the shell has hardened after the process of being frozen, he explains. ICSI is when sperm are injected one at a time through the shell, directly into the substance of the egg. For more info, check out these fertility clinics: medfem.co.za and capefertilityclinic.co.za.
