Frozen Egg Bank, Inc. has been a pioneer in the science of egg freezing since the year 2000. Given our experience and success rates in egg freezing, we are able to offer our patients the most affordable price for egg freezing at $7,000 compared to other less experienced egg freezing facilities who offer egg freezing at up to $12,000.

Our $7,000 egg freezing fee includes: office visits, pelvic ultrasounds and estrogen blood tests during stimulation; anesthesia and egg retrieval by physicians; surgical suite and laboratory fees; and egg cryopreservation for 6 months.

egg-freezing-price-cost-comparison-california-photo

Typically, with most egg freezing centers, there is a separate fee for the initial consultation with the egg freezing specialist directly. Pre-testing fees are also separate along with medication costs to stimulate the ovaries. At Frozen Egg Bank, our initial egg freezing consultation fee is $325 along with the full panel pre-testing cost of $880. The estimated medication cost varies between $2,000 – $4,000 depending on the patient’s health and age. Each patient may require additional testing if deemed medically needed. Additional egg cryopreservation storage fees run at $275 per year.

Our goal at Frozen Egg Bank, Inc. is to harvest the greatest number of eggs safely without over-stimulating the ovaries which often equates to 6 – 25 eggs harvested per freezing cycle depending on the woman’s age and health. The larger the number of eggs that can be harvested, the more chances those eggs can survive the freezing and thawing process. Of course, we want the strongest and most viable eggs and, usually, a woman will need to thaw 6 to 8 frozen eggs per successful pregnancy attempt.

The Medical Director at Frozen Egg Bank, Inc. is David Diaz, MD, FACOG. Dr. Diaz is one of the country’s foremost authorities on the science and process of egg freezing. His egg freezing success rates have been celebrated at the world’s first ever reunion of frozen egg babies.

Cadyn’s mom was busy establishing her career as a business entrepreneur when one day she decided it was time to have a baby and start her family. She asked Dr. David Diaz at the egg freezing program at Frozen Egg Bank, Inc. in partnership with West Coast Fertility Centers in Orange County, California to thaw the frozen eggs and inseminate them using in-vitro fertilization.

At just the right time, the embryos were carefully placed into the uterus under ultrasound guidance. Fertility enhancing hormones were used to prepare the uterine lining to become receptive to the embryos. After two anxious weeks of waiting, the results of the pregnancy test were ready.

“You’re about to become a medical pioneer by being one of the few women in the world to become pregnant with frozen eggs,” said Dr. Diaz to Cadyn’s mother. Although Cadyn was born in 2005, the eggs from which she was conceived were frozen back in 2001.

The frozen egg pregnancy started out very smoothly. However, in the last few weeks, a dangerous obstetrical condition developed when the placenta was noted to be blocking the birth canal. Fortunately, a cesarean delivery was performed and little Cadyn became the first baby conceived from frozen eggs in California.

Cadyn will always hold a very dear place in the hearts of everyone at Frozen Egg Bank as she was the first frozen egg baby born at the Center. Over the years, the FEB family has remembered and celebrated Cadyn’s birthdays with Barbara.

Unlike past generations, women today are waiting longer to start their families because they’re completing higher education, looking for their life partner or climbing the career ladder. Our patients who froze their eggs shared their reasons on why egg freezing was important to them.

“I did not want my biological clock to dictate when I should get married and have children.”

“I wanted to take the pressure off myself of finding Mr. Right right away.”

“Freezing my eggs bought me time to pursue my career goals.”

“I was able to enjoy dating and getting to know men as potential friends first, rather than scouting them immediately to be ‘the one’.”

“I felt a large sense of relief, gratitude, and pride knowing that I had done everything within my own reach to give myself the option of having a family in the near future.”

“I didn’t intentionally delay having children nor plan to get a divorce. My life and my fertility veered off course temporarily.”

“It’s more about finding the right person to have a child with and wanting to witness the combination of our characteristics in that child.”

“Freezing my eggs has enabled me to stop worrying about whether I’ll have a chance to have children before the end of my reproductive timeline.”

“It was just maybe I should freeze my eggs, the same way one would think maybe I should start an IRA – it’s an investment for the future.”

Preserve your fertility with egg freezing. Harvest your robust eggs during favorable years and thaw them when you’re ready for pregnancy in your personal and professional life. To schedule your egg freezing consultation with Dr. David Diaz, please call 714-513-1399 or contact us online.

Egg Freezing Ban Lifted, Reproductive Freedom at Last!

egg-freezing-breast-cancer-awareness

The American Society for Reproductive Medicine removed the “experimental” label from human egg freezing.

Frozen Egg Bank, Inc. (FEB)is the premiere facility in the United States dedicated to the freezing and distribution of donor eggs and electively freezing the eggs of women wishing to preserve their fertility. A study presented at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine meeting on October 24, 2012 showed the freezing and thawing technique used by FEB, a division of West Coast Fertility Centers, has a greater efficiency than the vitrification technique among all egg banks sampled in the study.

  • 1 in 5 women are having their first child after age 35. Some women request elective egg freezing to preserve fertility while their eggs are healthy and robust.
  • Women diagnosed with ovarian dysfunction or failed fertility treatments can request using frozen donor eggs to help improve their odds for pregnancy.
  • Women newly diagnosed with cancer can freeze their eggs before chemo and radiation treatments.
  • Some women prefer to freeze surplus eggs instead of embryos for ethical reasons.

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. 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.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. West Coast Fertility Centers encourage all young breast cancer patients who want to have children in the future discuss fertility preservation by egg freezing with their oncologists.

egg-freezing-breast-cancer-logo

The gonadotoxic effects of chemotherapeutic drugs are known to potentially lead to infertility due to chromosomal effects in the oocyte (eggs). By harvesting and freezing before the start of cancer treatment, the unfertilized oocytes can be stored indefinitely and thawed when clearance is given to attempt pregnancy. This is especially important in young, single females interested in having their own biologic child.

Frozen Egg Bank, Inc. in affiliation with West Coast Fertility Centers offer egg freezing to young patients who have been unfortunately diagnosed with cancer. The advanced LANDA Technology developed at our Center has yielded nearly 70 live baby births from egg freezing. Dr. David Diaz and staff held the World’s First Reunion of Babies Born from Frozen Eggs this past Saturday, October 15, 2011, to celebrate the pioneering families and their babies conceived from thawed frozen eggs.

Facts about Breast Cancer

  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States, aside from skin cancer. According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), an estimated 192,370 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed among women in the United States this year. An estimated 40,170 women are expected to die from the disease in 2009 alone. Today, there are about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors living in the United States.
  • The first NBCAM program took place in October 1985 as a week-long event to fill the information void in public communication about breast cancer. The founding members of the Board of Sponsors which includes the American Academy of Family Physicians, AstraZeneca Healthcare Foundation and CancerCare, Inc., distributed brochures, spoke to news reporters, and testified before a U.S. Congressional committee about the crucial need for widespread access to mammography.
  • Today the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) organization is comprised of several national public service organizations, professional medical associations, and government agencies working in partnership to build breast cancer awareness, share information and provide access to screening services.
  • October is designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, however, at NBCAM, breast cancer awareness and education is a year-round mission.

“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 Dr. Diaz.

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

  • Alice Crisci, Founder and CEO of Fertile Action Network
  • Jack Jacoub, MD, Director of Oncology at OC Memorial Hospital
  • 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.”
