Individuals and couples may use donor eggs as part of the IVF cycle. Donor eggs provide the ability to use eggs that may be better candidates for fertilization and could subsequently yield a higher pregnancy success rate.
Typical Candidates for Donor Eggs
Women with a history of unsuccessful IVF attempts
Gay or single men (with the use of surrogate or gestational carrier)
Women who have undergone cancer treatments and can no longer get pregnant
Women with a history of hereditary genetic issues
Women that no longer have ovaries
Women that have premature ovarian failure (POI)
