Donor Egg treatment
Using an egg donor may be an option for couples where their religion and their values allow these treatments, and there is little or no chance of pregnancy without the use of a donor.
Donor treatment is just IUI or IVF using somebody else's eggs but there are important social, ethical and legal aspects to using a donor.
Donor egg is an option when a women has undergone early menopause, when her eggs do not fertilise or develop normally, or when the chance of pregnancy is low because of her age. A women's age is the most important factor in determining the quality and quantity of her eggs. It is common for people who have tried unsuccessfully to have a child by IVF using their own eggs to consider donor egg.
What is involved in donor egg
Donor egg treatment splits a traditional IVF cycle in to two parts. the first part involves your egg donor and the stimulation of her ovaries, followed by the egg collection. The second part involves you as the recipient of the donated eggs, adding sperm to eggs, embryo transfer and the subsequent pregnancy test.
