While making the decision to freeze the eggs is easy, most women still remain uncertain as to the number of eggs that they should get stored. Also, the number of eggs to be stored is different for each patient, and arriving at that specific number is not easy. It’s only after consulting with our fertility experts that you can get clarity about the various facets involved in the egg-freezing treatment such as the number of cycles required, the number of eggs to be stored, etc.
