Fresh vs Frozen

Frozen donor eggs are a more affordable option compared to fresh donor eggs.

  • Recipients don’t pay for the egg donor’s various expenses and fees.

Quality control with frozen donor eggs can be attained with fewer variables.

  • When using fresh donor eggs, unforeseen circumstances might occur in the egg donor’s life which can affect the timing of the donor and recipient’s cycles.
  • There is no guarantee on the number of donor eggs retrieved during a fresh cycle.
  • A major risk in shared donor egg programs is that there is no guarantee how many eggs will be shared, and often there is a need to wait for 1 or 2 other people to share the egg donor with you.

Why Frozen Donor Eggs?

There has been an increase in the use of frozen donor eggs in the past 10 years.

  • More and more physicians understand the benefits of frozen donor eggs, and often prefer them to fresh.
  • Intended parents have the ability to coordinate their pregnancy without aligning their cycle to that of a fresh egg donor.
  • As egg vitrification (freezing) technology has rapidly advanced, Fairfax EggBank prides itself on requiring a strict protocol that is used across all of our retrieval sites. This ensures all donor egg cohorts are handled with the highest level of quality control.

Frozen Donor Eggs Have Revolutionized Possibilities For IVF Treatments

There are several benefits of using frozen donor eggs from Fairfax EggBank. Recipients are provided with a large selection of donors from across the nation, and those cohorts of eggs are available immediately. Frozen donor egg recipients do not have to align their cycle to that of a fresh egg donor, which makes it easier to plan around the recipient’s or gestational carrier’s cycle. The frozen donor egg purchase is also more predictable. Recipients know the number of eggs they will receive from their cohort, allowing them to plan accordingly. In most cases, frozen donor eggs are a more affordable option than fresh donor eggs, and Fairfax EggBank offers an embryo development guarantee on their donor egg cohorts.

We Want You To Have All Of The Facts About
Using Frozen Donor Eggs.

Deciding to use donor eggs is an important step in building your family.

  1. As egg vitrification (freezing) has rapidly advanced, Fairfax EggBank prides itself on requiring a strict protocol that is used across all of our retrieval sites. This ensures all donor egg cohorts are handled with the highest level of quality control.
  2. Frozen donor eggs represent a more cost effective and convenient option. At Fairfax EggBank, recipients receive a cohort of 6-8 quality oocytes from their chosen donor. Each fully-screened donor is displayed on our donor database along with basic information, medical history, and personal details to help recipients find the donor that best matches their needs.
  3. Fairfax EggBank offers an embryo development guarantee, that ensures at least one good embryo will result from your purchased cohort. A replacement cohort is offered if the quality standard guarantee is not met.

Thanks to egg freezing, IVF with donor eggs is within closer reach for families who might not otherwise be able to afford it.
