Friends Freezing Eggs Together

Sisters Are Doing It for Themselves

Fertility Security for the Future

 

 

 

Act now to freeze your eggs while they are still healthy and robust! One in five women are having their first child after age 35 when declining egg quality leads to a higher infertility rate. Women pursuing careers or women who have not met their life partner can request elective egg freezing to preserve their fertility. For more information, please contact us at 714-513-1399 or email us at info@ivfbaby.com.

Egg Freezing Specialist, David G. Diaz, MD, FACOG, and his Team are among the world’s foremost authorities on the Science of Egg Freezing with 75 healthy babies born from frozen eggs at the center. The American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) removed the experimental label from egg freezing last year. Frozen Egg Bank is a division of West Coast Fertility Centers.

 

Dr. David Diaz is Hosting the World’s First Reunion of Nearly 70 Babies Born from Egg Freezing on October 15th, 2011

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

“This baby reunion is unique because it celebrates the pioneering families and their babies conceived from thawed frozen eggs. Nearly 70 joyous families and their frozen egg babies will come together to celebrate LIFE at West Coast Fertility Centers on October 15,” states Dr. David Diaz.

The entire staff at West Coast Fertility Centers has been diligently planning the first ever reunion of babies born from frozen eggs. Unlike other regular IVF reunions periodically held by various fertility centers, we are hosting the world’s first reunion of actual babies born from egg freezing. We are all so happy and excited to spend an afternoon with all the beautiful frozen egg babies.

Guest speakers at this world’s first frozen egg reunion event will include…

Barbara, Mother of first frozen egg baby – Cadyn who turned 6 years old on Oct 6th.

Brie, Patient who did egg freezing before starting her cancer treatments

Stephanie and Rob, Chose egg freezing rather than embryo freezing

 


 

“David Diaz, MD, Medical Director of Frozen Egg Bank Inc. and West Coast Fertility Centers has always      been on the scientific forefront of finding real solutions for real human needs because he understands that unanticipated life events can threaten a woman’s reproduction. Cancer at a young age, career demands, single marital status, or a depleted ovarian function can all endanger a woman’s fertility potential.

Since 2000, Frozen Egg Bank’s (FEB) medical and scientific team have been refining the art of freezing and thawing a woman’s unfertilized egg for fertilization and implantation at a later date. Long before the “flash freeze” method was in vogue, FEB in association with West Coast Fertility Center, presented their 91% frozen egg survival rate data at the ASRM Meeting in 2008. The team developed an IRB approved study for their digital programmed freezing method that has resulted in the births of nearly 70 healthy babies out of about 400 born in the U.S. from frozen eggs. Cadyn, the Center’s oldest frozen egg baby and the first in California, will celebrate her sixth birthday on October 6, 2011.”

“World’s First Frozen Egg Baby Reunion”: A New Generation of Motherhood

Thursday, October 6th, 2011

Once again, the rights of people who wish to have children by assisted reproduction are at the center of a debate.  This time around, Egg Freezing is at the heart of the dispute between women who want the freedom to create families and those who oppose a woman’s option to preserve her fertility.  Despite opposition, David Diaz, MD, Reproductive Endocrinologist and Fertility Expert, faced challenges and found solutions for a multitude of his patients. As a result, Dr. Diaz and his staff will be hosting the World’s First Reunion of Babies Born from Frozen Eggs on Saturday, October 15, 2011.

David Diaz, MD, CEO of Frozen Egg Bank Inc. and West Coast Fertility Centers has always been on the scientific forefront of finding real solutions for real human needs because he understands that unanticipated life events can threaten a woman’s reproduction. Cancer at a young age, career demands, single marital status, or a depleted ovarian function can all endanger a woman’s fertility potential.

Since 2000, Frozen Egg Bank’s (FEB) medical and scientific team have been refining the art of freezing and thawing a woman’s unfertilized egg for fertilization and implantation at a later date. Long before the “flash freeze” method was in vogue, FEB in association with West Coast Fertility Center, presented their 91% frozen egg survival rate data at the ASRM Meeting in 2008. The team developed an IRB approved study for their digital programmed freezing method that has resulted in the births of nearly 70 healthy babies out of about 400 born in the U.S. from frozen eggs. Cadyn, the Center’s oldest frozen egg baby and the first in California, will celebrate her 6th birthday on October 6th, 2011.

Advances in oocyte freezing now make it possible to preserve the unfertilized eggs of young cancer patients prior to starting potentially damaging chemo or radiation treatments. Once cleared by her oncologist, she may thaw her oocytes to attempt pregnancy. Such was the case for courageous Brie who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at age 23 and chose to freeze her eggs before starting chemotherapy. While going through the difficult diagnoses of cancer, there is hope knowing that Brie was given the option to freeze her eggs. There is definitely “life after cancer” and it is comforting to know that Brie’s ability to one day have children won’t be compromised.

Egg freezing has also proven valuable for the career inspired women. The physical properties that make an egg fertile during her youth can now be preserved by freezing her eggs until such a time when she is ready to initiate her family on terms that are suitable for her. Such is the case for Yvonne, a PA, who expressed, “Being a 34 year old professional female, I have thought about egg freezing for 2 years. I did not want my biological clock to dictate when I should get married and have children. After reading about Dr. Diaz and all the great work he has done, I decided to proceed with egg freezing.”

Some women faced with a family history of premature menopause, endometriosis and other medical conditions which can diminish or damage their ovaries can still become pregnant by using stored donated eggs frozen with cutting edge technology at the Frozen Egg Bank, Inc. (FEB), in California. Dr. Diaz recalls the debate more than 20 years ago about whether older women should conceive by using donor eggs. In 1992, Dr. Diaz’s patient, Mary Shearing, age 53, gave birth to twins. Today, Mary is an active 72 year old proud mother of daughters in college.

After undergoing IVF, patients like Stephanie and Rob chose to freeze surplus eggs instead of embryos. As needed later, the eggs are thawed and fertilized to create embryos that are then transferred to the uterus for a pregnancy attempt. Unlike an embryo, the egg is a single unfertilized cell, which for some individuals, may be simpler to discard when no longer needed. With this method, fewer extra embryos are created or need to be stored. More and more patients are favoring this option that avoids some of the ethical dilemmas surrounding frozen surplus embryos.

“Like previous fertility breakthroughs, egg freezing is not without its critics. While I can understand the medical and lay communities concerns about new fertility procedures, egg freezing is becoming a viable option for those women who wish to preserve their fertility,” says Dr. Diaz.

Previously, the low success described in early published medical articles seemed to perpetuate the false notion that egg freezing would never become a reality. However, building on the high success rate with embryo freezing at West Coast Fertility Centers, their focus turned to the systematic analysis of the physiology and the fluid composition of a human oocyte. West Coast scientists recognized the oocyte’s special requirements needed to survive the rigors of very low freezing temperature while still maintaining its integrity.  Equally important to a successful freezing program is the development of a robust thaw protocol that insures the survival of the egg when ready to be fertilized. Cell death can occur if conditions are not optimal during the reanimation sequence.

Rarely discussed by the media, is the fact that the vast majority of clinics offering egg freezing have never even attempted to thaw a single one of their patients’ eggs. This is a glaring example of why egg freezing is still considered “investigational.” Nevertheless, in the hands of experienced practitioners who practice the art of egg freezing, the success rate in the favorable patient age group approximates those of a fresh IVF cycle. Egg Freezing and thawing should be left to veteran experts who perform it frequently and practice it well.

“This baby reunion is unique because it celebrates the pioneering families and their babies conceived from thawed frozen eggs.  Although some groups may consider egg freezing “investigational,” nearly 70 joyous families and their frozen egg babies will come together to celebrate LIFE at West Coast Fertility Centers,” states Diaz. Guest speakers at the reunion will include Jack Jacoub, MD, Director of Oncology at Orange Coast Memorial Hospitals, Alice Crisci, Founder of Fertile Action Network, and Barbara Trulson, mother of our first frozen egg baby.

On Saturday, October 15, 2011 at 2PM, West Coast Fertility Centers will host “The World’s First Frozen Egg Baby Reunion” honoring the parents and children conceived from frozen eggs. The event will be hosted by Dr. David Diaz and his Team at West Coast Fertility Centers Orange County, 11160 Warner Avenue, Fountain Valley, CA 92708.

Who May Benefit from Egg Freezing?

1) Young women newly diagnosed with cancer wishing to avoid damage to their eggs before cancer treatments.

2) Women undergoing In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) who prefer to freeze surplus eggs instead of embryos for ethical reasons

3) Women with depleted ovarian function wishing to achieve pregnancy with frozen donor eggs.

4) Young women less than 38 years old who need to store their healthy eggs until they’re able to start a family.

Happy Thoughts and Reflections from Our Wonderful Patients

Friday, September 16th, 2011

“Thank you so much for the picture.  We will be 27 weeks tomorrow and we are having a girl!  We could never begin to thank all of you for everything that you have done for our family.  Kevin and I are amazed everyday that we have James and now a little girl on the way.

The care that was given to me by Dr. Diaz, Joan, Maritza, Beth, you and the entire staff was beyond anything we could have ever hoped for.  I will never forget the day that Dr. Diaz sat us down to discuss our options after all of the tests and x-rays. I was terrified that I would never be able to have children. As we sat at the table in his office and Dr. Diaz explained what the options were for us, he never rushed us, he listened to us, and he understood our fears.

It was then that I truly knew we chose the right doctor.  I believed with all my heart that when he said he would do all that he could to make our dreams of having a family come true that he would. Lucky for us that we found all of you with your medical expertise. We are still overwhelmed – IVF worked twice for us!!  We are truly blessed.

We look forward to introducing all of you to our new addition in December.”

With many thanks in our hearts,

Shea and Kevin N.

 

“We are so happy for your family. You make our job so extremely rewarding!”

David Diaz, MD and entire staff
