This past August marked the 5th anniversary of the Pacific Fertility Egg Bank (PFEB). Today, as always, our vision remains that of broadening access and options for patients who want to expand their families by using donor eggs. To that end, last year we transitioned our program away from offering a guarantee of two Day-3 embryos to a guarantee of two cryopreserved blastocyst embryos. This helps maximize the chance of pregnancy success, and it is one of the most compelling guarantees for intended parents looking to use frozen donor eggs.

San Francisco, CA – June 15, 2017 – PFC’s Pacific Fertility Egg Bank (PFEB) celebrated a milestone this spring when the 100th baby was born through its donor egg bank program. This progress mirrors a growth in the use of frozen donor eggs nationally. According to the the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART), there’s been a 34 percent increase in embryo transfers using frozen donor eggs from 2013 to 2015, the most recent year of statistics available.
