Hello. I will be choosing a clinic tomorrow to start my egg freezing process - as I would like to get it done before my bday. Would you be able to answer the following egg freezing questions at your earliest convenience tomorrow?

1. How many women have cryopreserved oocytes with your facility?

2. Of this stored number, how many women have thawed all or some of their oocytes at your facility?

3. What is the survival rate of all the oocytes thawed at your facility?

4. How many oocytes were implanted?

5. How many live births have you had from cryopreserved oocytes?

6. Are the oocytes stored on site and a part of the doctors office or a separate business? Are the oocyte removals done on site?

7. How many years experience do your different embryologist have?

Thank you kindly for your time. I look forward to hearing from you.

Our egg freeze program has been very successful, and we have pioneered many of the improvements in pregnancy rates using the vitrification freezing technique.

The harvest, storage, thawing, and transfer all occurs in our on site facility.

Thaw rate is 80%, fertilization rate is 75% with ICSI, and pregnancy rate is approaching 40% over the last 15 years, as more and more women are returning to use their eggs.

My experience has been over 25 years in this field, and I have authored many research papers on the subject.
