Our clinic has been successfully performing egg donation since 1999. Egg donation is usually recommended as a last resort of treatment for couples, but can also be useful to same-sex couples and single individuals wanting to become parents.
Is using donor eggs right for me?
There is no wrong way to have a child – whether you need donor tissue such as egg or sperm, a surrogate, IVF, or adoption. In the end, it’s your child and you just might need some help to get there. How you raise the child will ultimately be up to you. Your doctor may recommend using donor eggs for various reasons.
Low ovarian reserve
For some women, the quality and quantity of their ovarian reserve decreases involuntarily and with age. Some are unable to carry a child with their own eggs but can still have a child with donor eggs.
Chemotherapy or removal of ovaries
In many cases when treating cancer, the treatment can damage the ovaries. Women with damaged or removed ovaries can often still carry child with the help of donor eggs.
In homosexual relationships, donor eggs are most often used to conceive a child and in some cases surrogacy is also needed.
