Long Island IVF Announces Affiliation With My Egg Bank America:

The team at MEB has been a world leader in oocyte cryo-preservation since the late 1990s. MEB provides patients access to the largest inventory of frozen donor eggs in the world. Their highly experienced clinical staff is available throughout the egg donor selection process. Staff will answer questions and offer any assistance a recipient needs in finalizing their egg donor. In addition to meeting all FDA compliance standards, the egg donors go through a thorough clinical, psychological and genetic screening process. Most importantly, when a patient utilzes MEB, the patient is in complete control of the egg donor selection process and when they would like to have their cycle begin. Whereas, in the traditional egg donation model, the patient chooses their egg donor and the cycles are synchonized at all parties' convenience.

What is Micro IVF?

Micro IVF, also known as Mini IVF or minimal stimulation, is an IVF procedure whereby a patient's ovaries are stimulated with oral medications (Clomid) in conjunction with a minimal amount of injectable gonadotropins. The process proceeds in identical fashion to conventional IVF with egg retrieval, fertilization, embryo culture and ultrasound-guided embryo transfer.

What are the benefits?

  • Lower cost than most other IVF procedures
  • Use of fewer or less amounts of fertility drugs
  • Less risk of high order multiple pregnancies
  • Often produces multiple high-quality embryos, some of which can be cryopreserved for potential additional transfers in the future
  • Can be used in cases that intrauterine insemination (IUI) cannot
  • When combined with the SET program, embryo cryopreservation is FREE,
    as is embryo storage for one year
