Our strategy allows us to obtain a 91% survival rate post-thaw; from the 621 eggs that were thawed, with a 54.3% (50/92) pregnancy rate per transfer.
NUMBER OF LIVE BIRTHS: 70 BABIES
Since 2005, we already have 70 babies born and counting from frozen eggs. This is the highest number of babies born to one clinic in the Western Continental United States. Refer to Graph I.

A number of reports have been nationally published or presented on oocyte cryopreservation. Outcomes of oocyte cryopreservation using the different slow-freeze methods are compared with Frozen Egg Bank’s method. We compared the data from other published authors regarding the survival rate, fertilization rate and the number of oocytes thawed in order to achieve a pregnancy. The Frozen Egg Bank experience is shown in the teal colored bar in Graph II.
