What is Donor Eggs treatment?
Egg Donor Program provides women who do not produce eggs, or cannot use the eggs they produce, with the opportunity to experience a pregnancy and to bear a child.
There are two main types of egg donation:
Known donation: Where a family member or a friend is prepared to undergo IVF procedures to provide the eggs. The advantages of having such a donor are that the genetic origin is known and the waiting time for the treatment is significantly reduced.
Clinic-recruited donation: This is where a woman voluntarily undergoes IVF procedures out of the goodness of her heart to provide eggs for another woman. In such cases, the recipient does not know the donor, and the donor’s identity remains unknown to the recipient. However, a donor must agree to release identifying information (name, date of birth and address) to a donor-conceived child, once he or she reaches the age of 18.
Is Donor Eggs treatment suitable for me?
There are a number of scenarios where using the eggs from a donor can help you experience pregnancy and the joys of a baby.
Donor eggs can be a possible option for you if you face fertility challenges such as:
- your eggs are low in number or quality
- you are over 35
- you’ve tried IVF and not succeeded with your own eggs
- you’ve had ovaries removed, or have had a premature menopause
