About the Frozen Egg Bank
GENESIS New York works with outside egg banks for our patients’ convenience. Egg banks provide women with another option for third party reproduction. Rather than eggs being retrieved from a donor at our office, the donor has already been medically, psychologically and genetically screened, and her eggs have been retrieved and frozen. Once you have selected a donor, the eggs can be immediately sent to our laboratory, where they are thawed, fertilized and ready to be transferred to you as embryos. This allows for more scheduling flexibility and also means that you are not waiting to be “matched” with a fresh donor for an extended period of time. However, there are some potential disadvantages when compared with a fresh cycle which can be discussed further in consultation.
