What is Egg Donation?
Egg donation is an assisted reproductive method that allows individuals and couples to experience motherhood by using another woman’s eggs. For women who are unable to naturally reproduce using their own eggs and for men who are in need of an egg to produce an embryo, utilizing donor eggs is the best option. The process involves utilizing eggs from a younger woman and infusing them with sperm to create an embryo, before implanting them into the intended mother or surrogate’s uterus through in vitro fertilization (IVF).
One of the main benefits of opting for 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. Our extensive donor program and egg bank, consisting of a wide variety of international and domestic donors, allow you to select donor eggs that best suits your wants and needs.
Our Egg Bank, where a large selection of quality eggs are frozen through vitrification and stored in our on-site laboratory, makes your journey to parenthood shorter and less risky. It puts you in complete control of your timeline, since banked eggs are available for immediate use. Additionally, selecting donors from our bank eliminates waiting time and unforeseen setbacks. With our egg bank, you maximize success rates due to a guaranteed yield of mature eggs.
Our extensive donor database allows you to find your perfect match. Whether you are looking for a donor with high IQ, specific aesthetics, gifts or talents, our matching program assures you have the opportunity to select the characteristics most important to you. With a fresh donor, you will also have the opportunity to ask the donor any questions you may have and the pool of eggs will not be divided or shared with other intended parents.
