Global Donor Egg Bank Makes Frozen Donor Eggs Available to Patients Worldwide

Monday, October 21st, 2013

Dr. David Diaz and the entire medical team at West Coast Fertility Centers (WCFC) and Frozen Egg Bank, Inc. (FEB) is pleased to announce the launch of their new website www.GlobalDonorEggBank.com. The combined efforts of the fertility specialists of WCFC and the scientific and research development of FEB have merged to form Global Donor Egg Bank.

global-donor-egg-bank-frozen-website-launch photoThe purpose of Global Donor Egg Bank is to make frozen donor eggs available to patients worldwide. Frozen donor eggs can be shipped to any country around the globe according to local regulations.

Motherhood and family building plans can sometimes get delayed due to life’s uncertainties. The most fertile years for a woman may not always coincide with her social or monetary status to start a family. With increasing age, there is a declining egg quality which makes it potentially more difficult to get pregnant. Even women who have attempted IVF treatment(s) discover that their aging eggs are the problem why their embryos have low implantation causing infertility. For these cases, the recommended treatment would be to use healthy, robust eggs from a young donor with physical traits similar to the mother.

The first successful pregnancy resulting from egg donation occurred in 1983 and involved a patient who was diagnosed with premature menopause. Nowadays, the indications for egg donation have expanded to include not only premature ovarian failure, but also for young patients who have not been successful with IVF due to poor egg quality or suboptimal embryos, are excellent candidates for egg donation. Also, the use of donor eggs may be chosen to avoid the possibility of transmitting a significant genetic illness for which the female recipient is known to be a carrier.

The use of Frozen Donors Eggs has many advantages over the use of fresh donor eggs. Simultaneous synchronization problems are avoided. It is often difficult to coordinate the donor’s and the recipient’s cycles due to donor non-compliance with FDA regulations, medication errors made by the egg donor, inadvertent pregnancy by the donor, problems with the egg donor’s travel arrangements which are paid by the recipient, donor demands for excessive payment and unexpected cancellation of the cycle by the donor.

Also, there is the issue of storing unused, excess embryos which may be used or often abandoned by the intended parents. The entire cost of this process must be borne by the recipient of the donated eggs.

Frozen donor eggs can offer recipient parents time savings (3 – 5 months) and cost savings (50% – 70% less). At her own convenience, the recipient mother can select the frozen eggs from a donor which then can be thawed to achieve a pregnancy. This innovation in egg freezing technology dramatically improves the efficiency of the egg donation process.
