I am trying to find out more information about egg banking. I have had two past IVF's that resulted in chemical pregnancies, and numerous failed IUIs. My Dr. suggested egg banking for multiple cycles so that we have a good batch of eggs to work with (he uses vitrification). My previous IVFs resulted in only 6 eggs each time (3 embryos cycle #1, and 2 cycle #2). So I guess I am a poor responder.
Has anyone had experience and/or success with this approach?
