Egg Donor Program
Since 1983, egg (oocyte) donation has made it possible for patients to achieve their dreams of becoming parents. There are many reasons why egg donation might be chosen as a means to conceive a child. In some cases, a woman’s ovarian age makes biological motherhood difficult, if not impossible. In other situations, egg donation makes parenthood possible for same-sex couples, or for those affected with genetic diseases as they can avoid passing those conditions to their offspring. Whatever brings you to consider egg donation, the Center for Advanced Genetics is here to help.
There are two types of egg donors: Known and anonymous. Known egg donors are those donors whose identity is know to the recipient (this might be a family member or friend). Anonymous egg donation is actually much more common. In anonymous egg donation, the identity of the egg donor remains confidential and anonymous (she is not known to the recipient parent/s). Anonymous egg donors are carefully screened, tested, and evaluated before becoming a donor. They receive monetary compensation to recognize their commitment to the process. If you think you may want to pursue pregnancy via egg donation and IVF, please contact out Center so we can help arrange a consultation and answer your questions.
