Egg Freezing in the Philippines
While IVF and artificial insemination are reproductive technologies widely accepted and accessible in other countries, are there options available in the country?
Now that we have identified the best time to freeze an egg cell, it is time to talk about egg freezing in the Philippines. Your first concern will be, is it already available in our country? Fortunately, it is! There are clinics that offer oocyte cryopreservation.
If a woman wants to freeze her eggs, she must prepare at least Php120,000 for the procedure. In some reports, the costs can go as high as Php350,000. This cost includes the tests, the hormonal medications, doctor’s fees, and hospital fees. Aside from the procedural costs, you may also want to prepare at least Php10,000 annually for the storage.
Additionally, if you are wondering if insurance policies will shoulder the costs of oocyte cryopreservation, you may be disappointed. Even in countries where egg freezing is already a trend, insurance companies typically do not pay for the procedure.
