USC Fertility is now affiliated with My Egg Bank, adding more options to our donor egg program
USC Fertility is one of the pioneers in the field of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) using donor eggs, performing our first successful egg donation cycle in 1987 making us one of the first programs in the United States, or, for that matter, the world.We know that choosing the right egg donor is a critical part of the process and providing options for our patients is very important to us.
My Egg Bank offers couples the convenience and savings of using frozen eggs
Many women in our donor egg program use fresh eggs, which is a very successful, important part of our donor egg program; however, in keeping with our efforts to give couples every available option for starting a family, we also want to offer the choice of using frozen eggs for IVF.
In recent years, the technology involved in freezing eggs has greatly improved largely due to scientific advances achieved right here at USC Fertility, and the success rates achieved with frozen eggs are now on par with those achieved using fresh eggs. Couples taking part in our donor egg program may choose to use frozen eggs for the following reasons:
Convenience—with frozen eggs, there is no waiting period looking for a donor match, and there is no waiting for the donor and the recipient’s menstrual cycles to synchronize.
Cost—costs involved with using frozen eggs can be as much as one-third to one-half as much as the cost of a cycle with fresh donor eggs
At USC Fertility, we’re happy to welcome My Egg Bank as an affiliated partner as we continue to be at the forefront of fertility treatment, always striving to give our patients every available and trusted option for starting their families. To learn more about our donor egg program, contact us.
