Egg Donation

Egg donation is the process by which a young woman (egg donor) donates eggs for purposes of getting another woman (the recipient) pregnant and typically involves in vitro fertilization technology. A need for egg donation may arise for a number of reasons. Infertile couples may resort to egg donation when the female partner cannot have genetic children because her own eggs cannot generate a viable pregnancy or the chances are so low that it is not advisable or financially feasible to do IVF with her own eggs. Pregnancy rates with egg donation are very high.
