Mmmm, I don't think it sounds too good to be true . . .December 29 2010 at 3:30 PM

Response to More info
GIVF was doing frozen egg cycles for $7500, BUT a recent patient who posted here said they were only claiming a 40% success rate. GIVF now claims a 65.5% clinical pg rate on fresh transfers (59.9% live birth rate for the previous year). So, the learning curve on frozen egg cycles is looking a lot steeper than I had hoped to see for my ttc friends who aren't mothers yet. And it doesn't sound as though Southeastern has meaningful stats yet.
As far as I can tell, even if you're not paying a lot at these clinics that are vamping up their frozen egg programs, you're still paying to be a guinea pig. And a few thousand more will get you a fresh cycle overseas or a shared cycle at CNY, etc., with much better prospects for success. I don't mean to sound cavalier about a few thousand dollars, but I have a feeling that frozen egg as a game-changing technology may be a few years further down the road.
