The Fertility Institute of Hawaii offers patients some of the highest pregnancy rates in the world! We host one of the most successful donor egg programs in the United States and the world. FIH is at the forefront of advances in egg donation technology.
Egg Donors are young healthy fertile women who have decided to donate their eggs to help couples who need eggs. We have developed Hawaii’s first IVF egg bank. This will allow couples to undergo the donor egg IVF process more efficiently. Our Egg Bank of Hawaii has donated eggs from all ethnicities; however, because of our location in Hawaii we will also have a unique inventory of eggs from Japanese egg donors, Chinese egg donors, other Asian egg donors as well as Pacific Island egg donors. At the Fertility Institute of Hawaii, we also use the services of other egg banks across the country to procure cryopreserved eggs for our patients.
Option #1: Fresh Donor Egg IVF cycle –90% cumulative live birth rate.
With a fresh cycle, you receive all of the eggs that a donor produces so the pregnancy rate is exceptional. Even after a successful pregnancy, approximately 50% of recipients will have additional embryos to cryopreserve for biological siblings. Since the eggs are not ready for immediate use, a fresh donor egg cycle requires some coordination and time in order to complete.
To choose the appropriate treatment option for you, please contact our Donor Egg Coordinator at 808-545-2800 to schedule a consultation and pre-screening with Dr. Frattarelli, Dr. Karmon, or Dr. Goulet.
Option #2: Egg Bank of Hawaii utilizing vitrified donor eggs – 60% cumulative live birth rate.
The cost for utilizing vitrified donor eggs is approximately half of what a traditional cycle would cost. Our donor eggs are frozen for your immediate use so you can cycle at a time that works best for you. Frozen donor eggs give you certainty that your cycle will not be canceled because of a donor who fails pre-screening, has a low ovarian response or unexpectedly has a life event. In most cases, using frozen donor eggs is more cost effective than a traditional fresh cycle because the fixed costs associated with donor egg retrieval is shared across more than one lot of eggs. Furthermore, our success rates are nearly as good as traditional cycles. If available, you may purchase additional lots of eggs for future attempts at having full biological siblings.
The Fertility Institute of Hawaii is one of the founding partners of the Donor Egg Bank USA which was created to fulfill the desire of our patients to gain access to a diverse database of donors with the added convenience of a quicker treatment process. The Donor Egg Bank USA is one of the most comprehensive frozen donor egg programs in the United States and offers patients several options for frozen donor egg treatments
