Bay Area IVF Group Offers New In-House Embryo Donation Program
Date:8/10/2009

One of first clinics in nation to offer patients unused embryos from its other patients, a more affordable and ethically appealing option for some

SAN RAMON, Calif., Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Bay Area fertility patients now have a new means of resolving the dilemma of what to do with leftover embryos in frozen storage, thanks to the launch of an embryo-donation program at the Reproductive Science Center of the San Francisco Bay Area (RSC).

Increasing numbers of patients undertaking IVF to create their families are finding success and a full house, with leftover embryos in storage. This leaves them with decisions regarding the fate of these embryos. Several agencies exist to help donate these embryos to other patients, but they are online or out of state, inspiring RSC to become one of a handful of private clinics nationwide to launch its own in-house embryo donor program.

"RSC's new program enables its patients to use embryos donated by other RSC patients, providing highest quality assurance and the comfort of a trusted fertility clinic," said Dr. Mary Hinckley of RSC.

Many patients are finding the cost of egg donation increasingly more challenging. Donation fees have risen due to increased costs of FDA-mandated donor screening, as well as increased competition for donor reimbursement from unregulated agencies.

Like egg donation, embryo donation is a viable option for women who cannot conceive because they produce few or no eggs or embryos that do not develop properly--as is often the case for older women.

The overall chance of pregnancy with a FET is 30 to 55 percent per transfer. "There are no known risks to baby or mother resulting from this process," Hinckley noted. "The only additional considerations are the age and medical conditions of the donors."

Reproductive Science Center of the San Francisco Bay Area

Established in 1983, RSC was among the first centers in the country to report a successful pregnancy from a donated egg and facilitated the nation's second successful transfer of a previously frozen embryo. RSC's six physicians maintain clinics in San Ramon, Orinda, San Jose, and Modesto. RSC is a member of the IntegraMed Fertility network. For more information, http://www.rscbayarea.com/
