Donor Egg IVF

Genetics & IVF Institute (GIVF) specializes in donor egg IVF and is proud to have created one of the nation’s most comprehensive and successful donor egg programs. We offer both frozen donor egg and fresh donor egg services and house the premier frozen donor egg bank, Fairfax EggBank. The ability to provide both fresh and frozen donor egg cycles means that our patients have more options, more control, and can begin treatment quickly. Learn about the Fresh Donor Egg Cycle Process or the Frozen Donor Egg Cycle Process to help you decide which may be right for you.

Who May Consider the Option of Donor Egg IVF?

There are several factors that make the option of donor egg IVF an excellent choice for a patient, including egg quality, diminished ovarian reserve, and a female patient’s age. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, female fertility begins a significant decline at age 32 and more rapidly declines after age 37. After age 35, most women have a substantially decreased egg quality, which directly impacts the chances of conceiving with their own eggs.

There are many indications for donor egg IVF:

  • Age-related diminished ovarian reserve (poor egg quality)
  • Premature ovarian failure due to:
    • Autoimmune disorder
    • Chemotherapy or radiation therapy
    • Genetic causes
    • Environmental causes
    • Unexplained infertility
  • Surgical menopause
  • Carrying a genetic mutation or disease
  • Natural menopause

Donor egg IVF is often prescribed as the most effective treatment for decreased ovarian reserve. It can be an excellent option for those who have struggled with traditional IVF, had multiple miscarriages, or who are over 40 years of age and trying to conceive.

Donor egg IVF opens a world of possibilities and hope for patients who have had difficulties conceiving. In most cases it allows those who could not become pregnant with their own eggs to become pregnant more easily, whether they use fresh or frozen donor eggs.

Find the Right Donor For You

Search Frozen Donors

Deciding on a fresh donor egg cycle or a frozen donor egg cycle is usually one of the first steps in the process. Some of the same donors who are available for a fresh cycle also have eggs stored in the egg bank. Questions of convenience, timeline, cost, and success are a few key areas in which patients compare the two options in order to decide which is best for them.

Reasons Why Genetics & IVF Institute is the Best Choice for Donor Egg IVF

1. Our Outstanding Success Rates

Most GIVF patients will achieve a clinical pregnancy after just one attempt. The success rates between fresh and frozen eggs are comparable – Over 50% for frozen egg cycles and over 60% for fresh donor egg cycles. Success is defined as confirmation of an intrauterine pregnancy by ultrasound, not just a positive blood pregnancy test.

Donor Egg IVF FAQs

Since 1988, GIVF has offered one of the most extensive and most comprehensive Donor Egg IVF programs in the country. We have one of the largest, most diverse pools of immediately available egg donors in the United States, and our program has excellent success rates. Regardless of whether you choose fresh or frozen donor eggs, you can begin treatment when it’s convenient for you. And you can depend on personalized, compassionate care and attention from your physician and donor egg coordinator.

Our expertise in genetics provides donor egg IVF patients with benefits not available at many fertility centers. Every egg donor is screened in-house by our board-certified geneticist, and donor egg recipients can always meet with one of our board-certified genetic counselors. GIVF counselors will review the patient’s family history, the biological father’s family history, the egg donor’s history, and answer any questions the patient may have about heredity and genetic conditions.

In general, any patient with a medical or genetic indication for using an egg donor can be a recipient if there are no medical contraindications to pregnancy. We accept donor egg recipients up to the age of 55. The decision to use donor eggs is made in association with the patient and their infertility specialist.

If male factor infertility is an issue, donor egg IVF with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) into the eggs is also available. Non-surgical sperm aspiration (NSA) can be used in association with ICSI if a patient has had a vasectomy and wishes to avoid vasectomy reversal, or there are other causes of the absence of sperm in the ejaculate. If donor sperm is needed, many highly-screened sperm donors are available from our in-house sperm bank, Fairfax Cryobank.

We do not require that donor egg recipients join a waiting list. Donor egg IVF cycles can match one donor to one recipient (sole match) or one donor to two recipients (shared match). Regardless of whether a patient chooses a sole or shared match, treatment can begin immediately and will not be required to wait for a donor.

We also have an extensive pool of fully screened, immediately available egg donors, and we offer frozen donor eggs from our in-house egg bank, Fairfax EggBank. If you choose an egg donor who is in high demand, there is a chance you may have to wait for the donor to become available. However, it is our goal to provide our patients with as many options as possible so they will not have to wait unnecessarily to begin treatment.
