Egg Donation

Egg donation, also referred to as oocyte donation, makes pregnancy possible for women who might not otherwise be able to get pregnant using their own eggs.

Who Are Candidates To Use Donor Eggs?

The reality is that any woman desiring to become pregnant has the option of pursuing donor eggs. Unfortunately, the majority of women who use donor eggs have significantly diminished egg quality.

Women with the following conditions or situations are typical candidates for donor eggs:

1. Early menopause or premature ovarian failure (POF)

2. Extremely poor egg quality

3. History of genetic disease

4. Ovaries do not respond to stimulation

5. Hormonal imbalance

6. Over the age of 40
