Hi all, hoping you can help me.
I am wondering what options exist for lower priced donor egg cycles in the USA. I know about CNY but don't wish to use them, are there any others that come close price wise? I don't care whereabouts, happy to travel.
Shady Grove in the D.C. area is also known for its low-cost split cycles. I'm not sure what those are costing these days. If you qualify, they also have a pretty affordable guarantee program. You can just go to their Web site for more information and contacts.
The frozen egg program at RBA in Atlanta is $16,500 for a cycle last I heard. RBA has a really good reputation and pioneered egg vitrification in the U.S. Using frozen eggs gives you a lot of flexibility.
If you're single, have MF, or were considering donor embryo, California Conceptions has a program for DE/DS freeze-all split cycles (they call is "donor embryo"; it is not) that costs $12,500 for 3 cycles with a 100% refund guarantee if you qualify for the program. One woman posted here that since she is local to the Northern California Fertility Center that hosts the program, they let her do fresh tx's. BTW, the program used to cost under $10K, so for the cost of a single foreign cycle, she was effectively in a DE guarantee program.
I'll be curious to see what other women post here, because I think more lower cost options are emerging. Since I needed DE + DS, had the California Conceptions program existed when I cycled, I would definitely have done that over going overseas. But since I had a little more cash to put toward the situation, I probably would have done RBA's frozen egg program (although that would have put a lot of pressure on me to complete my family as their age limit is 50 and 364 days and I was 48 when I cycled).
