There are many reasons why an individual or couple might decide to pursue egg donation or other third-party reproduction options. Some of those situations include:
- Advanced maternal age
- Diminished ovarian reserve
- Premature ovarian insufficiency/menopause
- Family building for male couples
- Genetic disorders
- Surgical absence of the ovaries
- Previous cancer treatment
- Failure to achieve pregnancy after multiple IVF cycles
No matter the reason or personal situation, our experienced specialists are available for consultation to help determine the best treatment for you.
There are two options for egg donation:
- Fresh Egg Donation: You work with an agency that provides a wide selection of egg donors who will undergo ovarian stimulation and egg retrieval to provide fresh eggs for the creation of embryos to achieve pregnancy.
- Frozen Egg Bank: We can provide frozen donor eggs through one of several frozen egg banks.
In both options, donors undergo extensive screening, following recommendations by the FDA and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). The evaluation includes processes to identify serious medical and genetic conditions, psychological conditions, infectious diseases, and an assessment of ovarian reserve. Potential donors with significant medical or genetic problems are not accepted as egg donors.
At the time of the match, you will be provided with a detailed profile containing information about the donor’s family, and medical and pregnancy history.
We will guide you through the process of selecting a donor, completing pretreatment evaluations, preparing the uterus for implantation, and performing in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer.
