Oocyte Cryopreservation is the freezing of a woman's eggs for later artificial insemination inpregnation.
A 2009 study showed 936 babies had been born from frozen eggs worldwide, with no increase in birth defects.

It costs about $9,500 to freeze eggs. A private company may have an additional charge of $1,000 to $3,000, said Noyes. The thaw cycle -- when the eggs are taken out of liquid nitrogen and fertilized -- is around $3,500 to $5,000.
