Yaneth, who recently completed an egg freezing cycle here at Extend Fertility, speaks out about fertility talk taboos, how she’s a “chicken” about medical stuff, how our pricing helps lower-income women, and her thoughts post-freezing.
A snippet of her story:
“When I moved to New York, I went for an egg freezing info session at a different clinic in Manhattan. By the end of it, I thought, “This is not for me. This is out of my reach.” You had to come to the office with $16,000—there was no insurance, there was no payment plan. I’m a social worker. I’m still paying student loans. That was not a possibility for me; it felt like something for celebrities and rich people, and I’m not that.
And then I got an email from Extend Fertility. The option to finance the egg freezing process made it doable. There was nothing to think about. I was ready to go for it. My medication was paid through my insurance, and I was able to do two cycles for $5,000.”
