Due to ICRM’s exceptional personalized service, excellent selection of in-house ovum donors, and reasonable cycle costs, ICRM has numerous out-of-town patients who opt to undergo an ovum donor cycle. After your new patient consultation (either via phone or in person), we will provide you with a list of potential ovum donors. You can review your possibilities and choose an ovum donor that best suits you. Cortney Dalton is our ovum donor coordinator and can assist you immensely with this process.
After picking an ovum donor, we will then coordinate your donor and your cycle. While most couples arrive in Boise 1-2 days prior to projected day of egg retrieval in order to assure that they will be able to provide the clinic with a fresh sperm sample, it is acceptable to use frozen sperm that has been previously provided and/or shipped to ICRM.
The embryo transfer will occur 3-5 days after the ovum donor’s egg retrieval. It is fine to travel home on the day of your embryo transfer. You also have the option of doing pre-genetic screening on the embryos. Your blood tests to determine if you are pregnant typically are done 8 and 10 days after the embryo transfer.
