What is Egg Donation?
Egg donation is the process of donating one woman’s genetic material (egg/oocyte) to another person for the purpose of creating their child via in vitro fertilization (IVF). Any resulting embryo that is created by the insemination of this egg by sperm from the intended father or a sperm donor is then transferred into the uterus of the intended mother or a surrogate mother for a resulting pregnancy. A surrogate can be implanted with an embryo created in several different ways via IVF. One such way is using the intended father’s sperm and the intended mother’s eggs, while other options are using intended father’s sperm and a donor egg, intended mother’s eggs and a sperm donor, or donor sperm and donor eggs. Becoming an egg donor for a family wanting to create a child of their own is an exciting and rewarding journey for everyone involved. The goal of our staff is to make your egg donation journey as enjoyable and fulfilling as possible whether you are an intended parent or egg donor.
In fact, Conceptual Options’ egg donor program is very selective – on average, we accept only about 1-3% of applicants into our donor program. A tentative donor egg match is made when a recipient decides to move forward with a specific donor. Our client intake team will contact the egg donor to confirm her availability. If the egg donor is available for the intended parents’ desired time frame, and passes an FDA-required round of testing, an official match is made. Some donors are selected and matched to a recipient very quickly after they apply; others may take months or years before they are selected; still others may never be selected.
The Egg Donation Experience
Egg Donation is a wonderful way for egg donors to help others create the families of their dreams. Egg Donors are often the only way some intended parents could even realize their dream of having a family. Whether you are an intended parent or an egg donor, your egg donation experience is of the utmost importance to our staff at Conceptual Options.
Since embryos created through IVF with an egg donor are often implanted into a surrogate mother, it is important to understand what surrogacy entails for the intended parents and egg donors. Click the links below for more information about surrogacy.
