What is Egg Donation?
Egg donation, more commonly referred to as “donor egg”, is an assisted reproductive technology that uses In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) to allow a woman to experience pregnancy and motherhood using another woman’s eggs. Thousands of women have used donated eggs to become pregnant. In some cases, you may need to consider surrogacy if the women is unable to carry the pregnancy to term.
One of the main benefits of IVF egg donation is its high rate of success due to the use of young, high-quality and fertile egg donors. Success rate is more dependent on the age of the egg than the uterus. Therefore, women who have not been successful in getting pregnant on their own may have more success with a donor egg. Success rates for donor egg IVF can be three to 10 times higher than with traditional IVF. Additionally the egg donor recipient carries the pregnancy and, thereby, remains in control of the gestational environment.
