I am new to the board and am desperately seeking information regarding egg freezing. I have spoken to the Sher Institute (SIRM) which is the only facility I know that utilizes Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH) to test the eggs for chromosomal abnormalities before freezing via vitrification. Apparently CGH ensures that only good quality eggs are frozen and the Sher Institute is reporting high success rates based on this technology. Unfortunately, I have also read some very negative reviews about the Sher Institute - so I have mixed feelings about going there.
I have a phone consultation with the Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine next week - I was impressed with their preganancy success rates in older women.
I am 39, my FSH is 9.0, AMH less than 0.1, Inhibin-B 43.5. So, I have to assume my ovarian reserve is low, and need a doctor/center that is effective in treating women like myself. I'm currently single and see freezing my eggs ASAP as the only option in preserving my chances of having a baby. Has anyone had their eggs frozen (for future use), or had the procedure perfomed in the past with successful fertilization and pregnancy? Has anyone gone to Dr. Geoffrey Sher or Dr. Albert Peters?
Any information you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Financially, I can only afford to go through this process once, so I have to make sure I go to the right doctor. I'm located on the East Coast, but I'm willing to travel.

Egg freezing is such a smart thing to do to preserve fertility. We did our IVF cycles in South Africa at the Cape Fertility Clinic. I loved my doctor there, and the cost of egg freezing there is approximately $4000 (USD).
