New Fertility Treatment Option Available to Couples in Boston

Boston, MA on 15 Aug 2012

Boston IVF is the only fertility clinic in the region to offer a new fertility treatment option to couples ΓÇô frozen donor eggs from Donor Egg Bank USA.

The exclusive partnership between Donor Egg Bank USA and Boston IVF is part of a unique collaboration between more than 100 of the leading fertility specialists in the country.

While frozen sperm has been available for years, the availability of a national pool of frozen donor eggs for in vitro fertilization is a new development.

In the past, working with a (fresh) egg donor was the only option for women who were unable to produce their own viable eggs. This process requires the synchronization of menstrual cycles between the donor and the recipient (parent who will carry the baby). The entire process of identifying, screening, and treatment can take three to 12 months.

Now couples can obtain frozen donor eggs immediately and complete an IVF cycle in as little as one to two months. A frozen donor egg IVF cycle can also present a significant cost-savings to couples. While a traditional (fresh) donor egg IVF cycle can cost $35,000-$38,00, a frozen donor egg IVF cycle can be half the cost.

"Using frozen donor eggs is a new, unique and more affordable option that we can now provide to our patients," explains Dr. Brian Berger, Medical Director of Boston IVFΓÇÖs Donor Egg Program "Couples cannot find this option anywhere else in the northeast, and we are excited to partner with some of the top reproductive professionals in the country."

Couples have access to a national donor database offering a wide range of characteristics such as physical traits, ethnicity, education level and more. Frozen donor eggs also offer couples the option of having additional children with biological siblings.

Couples using frozen eggs from Donor Egg Bank USA are offered a refund option through the 100% Assured Refund PlanΓäó if the delivery of a baby is not achieved.
