Egg Donation

Using donor eggs is an ideal option for both gay male couples and lesbian women who are unable to use their own eggs to get pregnant, or who want to donate their eggs to one another.

Reasons patients choose to use donor eggs

  • A history of genetic abnormality or disease
  • History of radiation or chemotherapy
  • Unexplained fertility
  • Surgical removal of both ovaries

If you feel egg donation is a good option for you, contact our office to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors. We will help you determine whether using donor eggs is an effective approach to getting pregnant. During the initial consultation, a reproductive endocrinologist will discuss the process of egg donor selection, success rates and any associated costs.

Donor Selection

Choosing the right donor is a very important part of this process. Guidance from an experienced physician will help you find a donor that is ideal for you. Your egg donor can be someone you know, such as a relative, friend, or your partner, or it can be someone you choose anonymously from an egg donor database. All of our donors are thoroughly screened and tested.
