What is considered a high-quality mature egg for vitrification?
A mature egg has only one polar body. We don’t freeze any eggs with two or more polar bodies,
big vacuoles, or are badly shaped. Also, we don’t freeze eggs that are bigger than normal or ones
that mature after retrieval.

How do I know if my IVF clinic is one of your partners?
Lucina Egg Bank partners with IVF clinics across the United States and around the world. If we don’t already work with your clinic, we will coordinate with them directly for transportation and thawing recommendations.
I don’t reside in the US. Can you ship to my fertility clinic?
Yes, we can. Please reach out to us to know if we will be able to send donor eggs to your clinic.
What can I anticipate after I have selected a fertility clinic?
Although the process can vary from one clinic to the other, you will need to have a consultation with a doctor and undergo diagnostic testing before treatment can commence. This often takes a couple of weeks to complete. When treatment is about to begin, you will be given medications to prepare your body in advance for embryo transfer. Also, treatment protocols and medication will vary between clinics. But in a frozen Egg Donor cycle, the time from when the egg recipient starts medication to “ready” her womb till the day of embryo transfer is usually around one month.
