Donor Eggs & Embryos
For some patients, the path to parenthood requires help from an egg or embryo donor.
When to Use Donor Eggs or Embryos
Using donor eggs or embryos is often the best option if you:
- have a severely diminished ovarian reserve or premature ovarian insufficiency
- have undergone or are undergoing chemotherapy or radiation
- have advanced beyond optimal reproductive age
- have no ovaries due to a surgical procedure or a congenital condition
- have had multiple failed IVF cycles
- have a history of poor or abnormal fertilization or arrested embryo development
- have a genetic condition but are not pursuing preimplantation genetic diagnosis
- are a male or transgender individual looking for reproductive assistance
