The Benefits of Using Frozen Donor Eggs
The benefits and advantages of using frozen donor eggs are plenty…
- The cost of frozen donor eggs from the Frozen Egg Bank is significantly less than the cost of a traditional fresh egg donor.
- There are fewer complications compared to finding and working with a fresh egg donor.
- Intended parents can select frozen eggs from the donor of their choice in the privacy of their home.
- There is no time lost in searching for a donor who may live in a distant location and will incur travel or hotel expenses.
- There is no need for synchronization of the recipient’s uterus with the donor’s ovarian cycle, saving time and money in the preparation process.
- There is no risk of medication errors or non-compliance by the donor which can result in cancellation of the cycle.
- If the donor has a poor response to medications, this will not impact the intended mother.
- There is no waiting time for the donor to become available. Recipient mothers can begin the process immediately.

Using Frozen Donor Eggs to Overcome Female Infertility
When age-related infertility is diagnosed, even a well planned IVF cycle may be ineffective in overcoming suboptimal egg quality and a negative outcome. This illustrates the overwhelming importance of egg vitality in achieving a successful pregnancy.
On these occasions, it may be helpful to recall that the treatment outcome of all fertility treatments is the birth of a healthy baby and happy parents. With this goal in mind, it becomes clear that different options may need to be explored to achieving the desired end result. While some patients accept adoption, others are excited about giving birth to their child by using donor eggs and the male partner’s sperm.
A select group of patients over age 40 often wish to attempt in-vitro-fertilization (IVF) using their own eggs at least once before considering other options. Despite heroic efforts and high dose medications to stimulate egg production, the ovaries are often unresponsive and no egg growth will occur.
In these cases, it is often possible to rescue the current cycle by offering the patient the chance to use frozen eggs from the diverse group of frozen donor eggs. This can save time and financial resources by utilizing a cycle that is already underway.
