Not sure about success rates or how many eggs you get, and the number of profiles available currently is not long, but worth looking into possibly.

I believe this is the start of seeing prices beginning to come down on DE treatments. if these clinics have to start competing for our business and begin to offer cost saving options like this, gone will be the days of 30, 40, 50 thousand dollar DE cycles.

thanks for the link,

Whether my prediction that clinics will discount or provide free egg vitrification to qualified donors in return for a share of their eggs will come true. They may actually already be doing it, but I haven't seen any ads to that effect. If so, the donor egg supply will burgeon quickly, but in any case, this is good, good, good, good news. There will still be enough to stress about with DE IVF, but huge amounts of the drama that plays out on this board are going to go away -- whew! Maggie (in VA)

This is very interesting, thanks for posting. Do you happen to know what kind of profile info we would get, other than what is listed on their site? Pics, health history, etc?

16. How much information do you provide on the egg donors?

We offer a great amount of detailed information about each donor. In fact, our program is one of the few to offer such an extensive amount of information on each donor. Basic information can be found on the website, but additional medical and personal history, donor essays, childhood and current donor photos, as well as audio interviews are also available. Many recipients say that this additional information is incredibly helpful in finding the right donor.

This is seriously very, very, very good news. Even if you had to do a few rounds with frozen, you'd still be waaaaaaaaay under the ridiculously high fees charged for a fresh cycle.

We have been wondering how the heck we would ever manage to have a 2nd (thank you, extremely expensive clinic for taking all of our money!!!) -- this might be our chance.

He is at SG and he just thinks eventually it will all move this way. Vitrification has really changed the landscape.

She said depending on the donor, typically you get 7-8 eggs, which should be enough for two good quality embryos. So maybe not enough to have frozens left, but at least a very good price and puts potential motherhood via egg donation in reach of those who might not have been able to afford it otherwise (like me, though I am happy with the route I took). Those donor currently available for fresh cycles have their profiles listed here:http://www.donoregg1.com/search/search.cfm so you can get much more detailed information online, including childhood pics, of some of the frozen egg donors. Hope this helps!

It seemed that in the two rounds of it, they had pretty good success rates. As for my friends, one got pg. and is doing well and the other didn't. I think it is a great option. I hope they continue to try to perfect the vitrification techniques to get the success rates even higher. Thanks so much for posting!

I went to a clinic that referred to vitrification somewhere on the net. When I went and asked about cycling with help of the vitrification de process I was told my cycle would cost 25k & up. It was like they did not want to even discuss a vitrification cycle! Please forgive me for bringing this up, and do not want to offend anyone in the medical field, but after basically being ignored when I brought up vitrification...I am thinking how would I know if I paid for a fresh cycle that the egg would not indeed be a vitrified egg anyway? (they're donor base is anon!) From what I have read on here it should only be about 10k or less with that option right? Not 25 & up
New to this so please forgive my ignorance.
I am totally pro-de vitrified or not.
