Using Donated Eggs

Using donated eggs may help women with advanced maternal age and diminished ovarian reserve conceive.

The anonymous donor egg program at Midwest Fertility Specialists is individualized and personalized to not only meet your needs, but also to provide support during some of the emotional ups and downs often associated with the donor egg process.

If using donor eggs is the best approach for you and your family, your physician and donor nurse coordinator will work with you to determine the best course of treatment.

When to consider using an egg donor

The decision to use donated eggs is usually fraught with questions. How do I start? Is this for me? Will this be my baby?

Donated eggs have helped thousands of couples have healthy children. A woman who uses donated eggs still carries the pregnancy, gives birth, and shares a strong physical and emotional connection with her baby.

Women who are older, have experienced multiple failed IVF cycles or miscarriages, or have undergone medical treatments like chemotherapy or radiation can greatly benefit from the use of donated eggs. Same-sex male couples may also use donor eggs, carried by a gestational carrier. The first step is to speak with your fertility doctor to see if donated eggs are an option for you.
