Using Fresh Donor Eggs vs. Frozen Donor Eggs:
Which Choice Is Right For You?

Not all recipient families are able to use their own eggs for conception for a variety of medical reasons. For LGBTQ+ couples, the challenge is even greater. Fortunately, Matching Miracles can help all recipient families realize the dream of growing a family using donor eggs.

There are two options for donor eggs – fresh and frozen. In the early days of fertility treatments with donor eggs, fresh donation was the only option because the freezing techniques had not been perfected. Today, both options are safe and widely used.

There are benefits and considerations for both options which we’ve detailed for you in the next section.

Facts to Help You Decide

The first thing to understand is that an egg’s health is not related to whether it is fresh or frozen. Both methods provide healthy eggs. But there are differences recipient families should understand about fresh donor eggs vs. frozen donor eggs.

How Matching Miracles Brings Recipient Families and Egg Donors Together

Matching Miracles specializes in helping all recipient families realize their dream of parenthood by matching them with fresh egg donors. As a full-service agency, we handle every aspect of the process from helping recipient families identify the ideal fresh egg donor through the embryo transfer. We can also assist recipient families with using frozen egg donations. This will require working with Donor Egg Bank USA.

All costs associated with the egg donation process are included in one fee so there are never any surprises. Our goal is to make the experience as stress-free as possible for both the recipient families and the egg donor. Egg donors are compensated for their time.
