Egg Donation

This process involves the stimulation of a woman's hormones with fertility drugs, the retrieval of her eggs, the subsequent fertilization with the sperm of the recipient's partner, and the transfer of the resultant embryos to the uterus of the recipient. Women who might or will need egg donation generally fall into the following categories:

  1. Women with no ovaries, either because of their congenital absence or their surgical removal
  2. Women with early (premature) menopause
  3. Older women
  4. Women who fail to produce adequate number of eggs after stimulation with fertility drugs
  5. Women with serious transmittable genetic traits or diseases
  6. Women who have decreased ovarian reserve
Egg donors should be young women (ideally between 21 and 29 years of age). Most egg donations are done anonymously, however known donors are also acceptable in many instances.
