Our egg donor program overview will give you an idea of what to expect when becoming an egg donor, using an egg or sperm donor, or a gestational carrier. All of these fall under third party reproduction.
With the advancements in assisted reproductive technologies, there are now more options available to help men and women build their families. Donor Egg Bank USA has helped hundreds of men and women realize their dream of having a baby, and we invite you to speak with one of their dedicated team members to get started today. Get Started
Donor egg treatment utilizes in vitro fertilization (IVF), where another woman's (donor) eggs are fertilized, then placed into our patient's uterus, where it can grow into a healthy baby girl or boy. When combined with pre-implantation testing (PGD or PGS), the baby's gender can be selected ahead of time.
An egg donor may be needed by women who are able to carry their own child, but are unable to use their own eggs due to poor egg quality, inheritable genetic diseases, decreased ovarian function or premature ovarian failure.
A man can often still achieve a pregnancy with his partner through intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF) using donor sperm. Candidates for using donor sperm include single women, female same sex couples and heterosexual couples with severe male infertility.
Once male fertility testing has determined a donor is needed, we will help arrange for anonymous donor sperm to be delivered to our laboratory from one of several national certified sperm banks we work with. We work only with centers where donors are appropriately screened and the sperm is properly quarantined.
Male same sex couples will not only require an egg donor, but also a gestational carrier. It is important to understand the difference between a gestational carrier and a surrogate, as surrogacy is not legal in New Jersey. Visit out gestational carrier surrogacy page for further information and our NJ Mandate page for information regarding recent developments in NJ legislation addressing same sex IVF coverage.
Becoming an egg donor is one of the most generous things one woman can do for another. A donor will undergo the same treatment as in vitro fertilization (IVF), except the process will end after egg retrieval. Egg donors are well compensated for their time.
My husband and I were nervous about using an egg donor, but I was 41 and had low ovarian reserve and poor egg quality. The chances of us becoming pregnant using my own eggs were slim to none. The staff did a wonderful job of explaining everything to us and answering my million questions. By the time our IVF cycle came around, we were both perfectly comfortable with the process. We elected to do a multi-cycle package [one fresh, two frozen] and we were blessed with two beautiful babies! I can't thank everyone enough for practically holding our hands the whole time. - Diana G.
