In a traditional cycle, one recipient is matched with one donor for one cycle. If a successful pregnancy is not achieved and all normal embryos have been used, the recipient is eligible for a second cycle with no agency fee.

Shared expenses include donor fee, donor insurance, and donor travel (if applicable). Medical expenses are determined by the clinic.
