Fresh or Frozen?!?

#1 Post by Applecart » Sun Jun 28, 2020 11:00 am


I was wondering if anyone could share their experiences/opinions as I am struggling on whether we should wait for a fresh donor cycle or go with frozen eggs.

From the research I have done - I like the idea of fresh as it could result in more embryos and we would like the possibility of siblings in the future but frozen seems like a simpler process which could fit with us better?!?

Thanks xx

Hi Applecart

I think they both have similar success rates and there is no guarantee either way so it’s entirely personal choice.

If you want siblings in the future maybe fresh is better for you.

Good luck whatever you decide xx
