Using Donor Egg Banks

The Reproductive Medicine Group’s egg donor program now offers a donor egg bank option.

The Reproductive Medicine Group is excited to announce their new partnership with My Egg Bank. This creates another option for intended parents who need to use an egg donor. My Egg Bank provides the frozen (cryopreserved) eggs, while The Reproductive Medicine Group provides the thawing, fertilization, and transfer of the embryos created from the donated frozen eggs.

Donor Egg Banks Offer Ready to Use Frozen Eggs

A donor egg bank is an option offered by fertility clinics.

Intended parents can purchase a set number of frozen eggs from a list of screened and qualified egg donors.  Once the recipient patient completes her testing, she can immediately use the donor eggs via In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).  In many cases, the intended parent experiences a faster process using a donor egg bank.

Egg Donation Screening Process with a Donor Egg Bank

Like the other donor egg options offered, My Egg Bank screens their donors thoroughly.  Screening includes:

  • age, height & weight criteria
  • general, reproductive, and psychological health
  • genetic history

How a Donor Egg Bank Works

A group of six donor eggs from My Egg Bank come with a thaw guarantee.  This guarantee insures that at least 4 of 6 of the donor eggs survive the thaw.  If 3 or fewer survive, and no pregnancy results, then the parents become eligible* to receive new eggs.

If an intended parent enacts the thaw guarantee, they may choose a different egg donor to avoid the same problems. My Egg Bank directly manages the guarantee fulfillment.

Additional Donor Egg Resources:

In addition to obtaining frozen eggs from a donor egg bank, The Reproductive Medicine Group has a very active donor egg program.  The special services coordinator matches patients with young egg donors by physical appearance and other characteristics, and recruits and screens egg donors carefully.
