Donor IVF Process
By cycling donors independently of recipients, we are able to cut down the time recipients must wait for a donor to less than three months (depending on their donor requirements). After the donor undergoes retrieval, we freeze her oocytes using vitrification, a technique that allows us to maintain the quality of the eggs with a thaw rate that is 98 to 99 %.
Successful cycles at New Hope Fertility Center with frozen donor cycles are comparable to fresh cycles. Almost all donor recipients are using our Frozen Egg Bank. If the patient prefers, we are able to do a fresh cycle, but it may involve a longer waiting period and more medication.
Using the Frozen Donor Bank removes the stress in synchronizing with the donor. Plus, we can follow your natural cycle and use no medication. In some cases, the recipient may need to be on Estrogen and Progesterone.
