    Squishy, when you thaw five and plan to do an eSET, what do you do with any other embryos that fertilize? Will they re-freeze them or will it affect them (being frozen and thawed twice, that is). This was something that I was thinking about the other day. If they can't re-freeze embryos that were frozen as eggs then I would have a hard time deciding how many to thaw.

    Frozen eggs have been used successfully for a few years for donor egg cycles. In a frozen egg donor cycle, a young woman goes thru IVF, eggs are collected, and then frozen. After they are frozen, another woman picks that donor, the eggs are thawed, fertilized and an embryo or two transferred. Extra embryos are frozen.

    It's different (and a lot easier) to freeze an embryo than an egg. I don't think they would refreeze eggs that have already been frozen, but there is no issue with freezing embryos that came from frozen eggs. In the forums I have seen many pregnancies and live births from frozen embryos that came from frozen donor eggs.

    I just froze last month and I'm not ready to use them yet but I'm deeply interested in your process for when I do. I'm 38 now so I expect it won't be so very long before I need them I'm not really clear on what the prep is. After BCP will you be on any meds to get your body ready or are they just waiting for the part of your cycle where your body will do it naturally?

    lilone2 .i start bcp with af.till 22nd wen next af then on the 22 i start proganova and then once the eggs fertalize i start estragen meds. So just 3 tablets no injections
    They can do it without bcp if u have a regular cycle.

    Great questions! I think that would be a deciding factor for me too. Glad to hear they are freezing the remaining embryos

    Hi guys. Sorry for barging in. I'm starting an egg freezing cycle next month, and I'm very nervous. I'm finding it very difficult to find answers to my questions online. Wondering about the experiences of others. I'm planning on doing my first cycle at a fertility clinic in NYC. I'm 36 yo, recently divorced, and I have low ovarian reserve. I conceived naturally, and very quickly, right before my divorce...but miscarried at 10 weeks. Anyway, I feel like I need to get moving. My FSH is high and I always seem to have a low antral follicle count. Right now, I'm mostly anxious about the cost of egg freezing! I'm wondering, for those who have insurance that covers IVF, but not egg freezing, did your insurance cover ANY part of the process of egg freezing. Medications? Scans? Bloodwork? Or did you have to pay for every single thing out of pocket? The billing department at my clinic is clueless. I know that everyone's insurance is different, but I'm just curious.
    Then, of course, I'm nervous about the process, success, etc. So much to think about.
    Thanks in advance, and I'm sorry that I threadjacked!
