In the past, traditional egg donor methods required first synchronizing the donor's and recipient's menstrual cycles, and then retrieving eggs and transferring fertilized embryos. The necessity for synchronization results in significant time delays and uncertainties. An innovative fast-freezing technology called vitrification has transformed fertility treatment capabilities, making the viability of frozen eggs similar to that of fresh eggs. Today, eggs can be collected, frozen, and banked, making them immediately available to recipients who select them from a donor database.
A traditional (fresh) donor egg cycle can cost up to $38,000 and take up to 12 months to complete. A frozen donor egg cycle can be completed in as little as one to two months for typically half the cost.
"Donor Egg Bank USA offers patients the same baby delivery success rates as most traditional (fresh) donor egg programs, but the process is more affordable and much quicker," says Heidi Hayes, CEO of Donor Egg Bank USA. "We work with some of the most well-recognized physicians and centers in the fertility field, and are thrilled to partner with Dr. John Schnorr and Dr. Michael Slowey at Coastal Fertility Specialists.”
