Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 26, 2012
Fertility Centers of Illinois is the only fertility clinic in the Midwest to offer a new fertility treatment option to couples – frozen donor eggs from Donor Egg Bank USA.
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 donor and the woman who will carry the baby, a process that 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 also presents a significant cost-savings to couples. While a traditional (fresh) donor egg IVF cycle can cost $25,000-$38,00, a frozen donor egg IVF cycle is half the cost.
"Frozen egg banking is a transformative technology that is changing the industry approach to fertility treatment," says Dr. Brian Kaplan, reproductive endocrinologist with Fertility Centers of Illinois. "By using frozen eggs, couples can reach a diverse donor database, cut costs, and significantly reduce treatment time."
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 guarantee through the 100% Assured Refund Plan if the delivery of a baby is not achieved.
