Egg Donation

Some women are unable to conceive for a variety of reasons including poor egg quality or ovarian function, surgical removal of ovaries due to chemotherapy, or genetic issues. For these women, the use of donor eggs becomes a possible option when exploring treatments that will lead to the conception of a child. Egg donation has been offered in the United States since 1986 and as it becomes more widely accepted and available, more women are choosing it as a fertility treatment option.

The egg donation process involves a donor selected by the recipient couple, either known or anonymous, who will go through ovulation induction to produce multiple eggs. The eggs are retrieved from the donor and fertilized with the recipient's partner's sperm and the embryos are then transferred to the recipient. It is important to understand the role of each participant, the donor, recipient and recipient's partner, when exploring the option of donor eggs as fertility treatment. You will find more details in the "Recipient Information" and "Become a Donor" sections as well as the "More Information" section.

Egg donation is a successful treatment option for women who face infertility due to the factors mentioned above. Often times, the IVF pregnancy success rates using egg donors surpass the traditional IVF pregnancy rates because the results reflect outcomes of using healthy eggs donated by young women, overcoming the cause of infertility in the recipient.

At GRS, our goal is to match you with the donor who meets your specific qualifications. We adhere to the rigorous Egg Donation recruitment and matching standards set by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. The GRS egg donation team is dedicated to managing the complex donation process and to ensuring the confidentiality of our donors and recipients.
