My Egg Bank uses a rapid egg-freezing technology called vitrification. This method provides many
advantages over other egg-freezing procedures.
More economical: Vitrification is more efficient than fresh egg donation, which reduces the cost of the procedure, thus making it more affordable.
More convenient: Vitrification allows treatment to begin immediately. There is no delay in waiting for donors and recipients to synchronize their menstrual cycles. Because we have the largest inventory of frozen eggs in the United States, recipients can often eliminate the 6-9 month waiting period that is associated with many fresh egg donation programs.
Better Options: The efficiency of vitrification means there are more options for recipients so they have more choice and control. We also give recipients access to important information about donors, such as physical traits, education level, and family medical history.
