Frozen donor eggs offer advantages with regard to scheduling, speed in completing a cycle, and cost.
With technology that’s available today, frozen donor egg success rates are comparable to those achieved with fresh donor eggs.
Advantages of frozen donor egg cycles. In addition to comparable success rates, frozen donor eggs offer advantages with regard to scheduling, speed in completing a cycle, and cost.
Extra benefits for you? Less waiting, more control. With frozen donor eggs, you can start a cycle right away. That’s because when you use frozen donor eggs, you don’t need to synchronize your cycle with the donor. You can complete treatment within 6 to 8 weeks, compared with 3 to 5 months for a fresh cycle.
Candidates for a fresh egg cycle are those who:
- Do not meet medical entry qualifications for a frozen egg cycle
- Strongly desire a genetic sibling(s)
- Are interested in embryo biopsy: comprehensive chromosome screening (CCS) or pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD)
- Live out of town and only plan to come to PFC for embryo transfer (and will not be doing any initial testing or ultrasounds in person at PFC prior to the beginning of the cycle)
