When it comes to fertility problems, disappointment can be a large part of trying to find a good egg donor.
Places like New York make finding a good egg donor hard, because the demand is so high.
When looking for fresh eggs, the selection is very limited and pricey.
So more women are turning to frozen eggs!
They then have the option to choose between dozens of donors and they cost about $11,000 less than fresh!
Now, frozen eggs can be ordered online and shipped anywhere.
The frozen egg success rate is only a third of fresh eggs' but that rate is climbing and doesn't rely on a donor making themselves available for the harvest.
Seems like using frozen over fresh eggs is actually the wave of the future!
Way to go Science! Help make some new mamas!
