Many women who have struggled with fertility can benefit from using donor eggs, known or anonymous to facilitate conception. This includes patients who cannot produce eggs likely to result in a successful pregnancy, for reasons such as:
- Premature menopause
- Side-effects from cancer therapy
- Genetic diseases
- Advancing maternal age
In our egg donor program, the donor undergoes an IVF cycle before her eggs are fertilized by the sperm of the recipient's partner or that of a sperm donor. The resulting embryos are then transferred to the recipient's uterus for the duration of the pregnancy. This process is one of the most successful advanced reproductive therapy (ART) procedures available today.
