Pros of Fresh Donor Eggs

More Donors to Choose From

Many egg banks have extensive databases of already frozen eggs available to pick from. However, this limits the pool to egg donors who have already cycled either for someone else, or for the purpose of banking their eggs. Offering fresh donors who haven't yet donated but are willing to, widens the pool of egg donors available for intended parents to choose from.

No Egg Thawing Needed

After a donor's IVF cycle, the retrieved fresh eggs are immediately fertilized in the laboratory with sperm from the intended father or sperm donor. Intended parents who choose a fresh donor will not incur the risk of losing eggs that can occur when thawing frozen eggs.

Pros of Frozen Donor Eggs

No Wait Time

The average time frame of a donor IVF cycle from start to finish is about three months. Intended parents who choose frozen donor eggs will not have to wait for this period of time and can create embryos immediately.

A Set Number of Eggs are Secured

With frozen donor eggs, the exact number of available eggs in storage is already known. This may eliminate anxiety that could emerge from not knowing how many eggs will be retrieved when cycling a fresh donor.
