We will be glad to provide you with more information upon request.


The costs mentioned so far do not include the following:

Thawing and fertilization with your partner’s / husband’s semen will be provided under a separate treatment contract and are not included in the total cost of oocyte preservation.

It goes without saying that the expenses for such oocyte preservation are deductible from the costs that may arise from a future IVF treatment at our IVF Centers Prof. Zech.
