FROZEN EGG VS.
FRESH EGG DONATION
Having eggs frozen immediately after retrieval allows egg donors to donate on their own schedule, they do not need to wait for a recipient’s cycle to be synchronized which is sometimes the longest part of the egg donation process. VEDA is the only facility in South Africa that currently offers this service.
