Shared cycles allow intended parents to choose a donor and split or share fresh eggs with our clinic, or use frozen eggs from our egg bank that were frozen as part of previous shared cycles. Both options offer significant cost savings when compared to a traditional egg donation cycle. In fresh shared egg cycles, intended parents are given eight eggs, which usually result in at least 2 advanced embryos, called “blastocysts” for transfer. Since only one blastocyst is typically transferred, the other can be frozen for later use. Frozen egg shared cycles offer immediate availability for intended parents who wish to expedite the process of embryo transfer. In frozen shared cycles, there are options for 8 eggs or 5 eggs in order to assist those with financial limitations.

The process for selecting, screening and treating egg donors for shared cycles is identical to traditional cycles. This includes thorough psychiatric, genetic and medical screening and legal representation. The only difference is that the eggs are shared between more than one intended parent. Sharing eggs allows us to access the more sought after donors, and means more options for our intended parents.
