The Fresh Egg Donor Program at MyEggBank

Since 2010, MyEggBank has been a pioneer of frozen egg donation. We recognized early on the advantages of utilizing the oocyte vitrification method to help people create a family using a donor egg, and we were the first frozen donor egg bank to use the vitrification method in North America. Today, we have cultivated the largest network of egg banks and practices throughout North America and are responsible for more than 6,000 live births using frozen eggs. To help even more people, we are proud to announce the launch of our fresh egg donor program.
The fresh egg donor program at MyEggBank will provide our patients with even more options for creating a family. Fresh donor eggs are a great option for people who want to build a family consisting of two or more genetically related children from the same donor. It’s also a great option for patients who require genetic testing for dominant diseases coming from the paternal side.
How Fresh Egg Donor Cycles Work
The beginning stages of starting a cycle with a fresh donor egg are similar to starting a cycle with a frozen one: Intended parents start by browsing the MyEggBank donor database and finding an egg donor that they like. Because we perform an extensive screening process on all our donors to ensure that they’re physically, mentally, genetically, and reproductively healthy, all you have to focus on is finding an ideal match.
Once you’ve chosen a donor, we will ship a sperm sample of your preference to the MyEggBank inventory center of your egg donor. The egg will be retrieved from the donor and then fertilized in our lab. The ensuing embryo will be frozen and shipped back to your center so that you can receive the embryo transfer.
Additional Fresh Program Options
Our fresh egg program features a few options to improve your chances of having a successful donor egg pregnancy, including:
- Embryo biopsy
- Preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy (PGT-A)
- Embryo guarantees
