IVF treatment using frozen donated eggs
The aim of our egg bank is to give our patients a wide choice of donors with little or no wait. You will be able to select your egg donor online and then have your treatment at one of our world leading clinics.
The benefits of IVF treatment using frozen eggs
- Excellent success rates. We do everything we can to give you your best chance of success. Our success rates are comparable whether you use fresh or frozen eggs. Our clinical pregnancy rate in 2019 was 48% for treatments with frozen eggs and 47% for treatments with fresh eggs.
- A more flexible approach to treatment. Your embryo transfer can be done with your natural cycle, or at a time that suits you. Because we have already collected and frozen the eggs, you won’t have to synchronise with your donor’s cycle.
- No treatment disruptions. Sometimes, synchronised (fresh) cycles sadly have to be cancelled at the last minute if a donor’s stimulation doesn’t go to plan. In a frozen egg cycle, the eggs have already been successfully collected and carefully frozen in our lab, ready to be thawed for treatment at your convenience.
- More certainty. There will be less chance of a cancelled cycle which can happen when using fresh eggs, either due to your donor pulling out for personal reasons or because not enough eggs are collected.
- Reduced stress and anxiety. Our fresh donor programme is highly successful and will remain the appropriate choice for some of our patients. However, our frozen egg programme reduces anxiety as we can provide your treatment cycle around you rather than your donor, with the assurances that the eggs are already collected and waiting for you.
- Quicker Treatment. There can be a shorter time between choosing your donor and having treatment as you will have a bank of already-collected eggs to choose from.
