Using Egg Donation Services
Many individuals and couples who are unable to start a family on their own consider using an egg donor.
What is egg donation and why you might use donor eggs?
Ovum or egg donation is a process when a woman agrees to undergo medical treatment to have some of ova harvested surgically for the benefit of intended parents. This enables these parents to have a baby of their own. Egg donation is also called ‘third party’ fertility.
There are many reasons why a couple might choose to use egg donation. Some reasons include:
- Have a limited ovarian reserve due to advanced age
- PCOS diagnosis
- Cancer treatment which limited fertility
- Genetic disorders that you don’t want to pass on to your offspring
- Born without a uterus
- You are a gay male couple or a single man who requires a donor egg
