Egg Donor

The IVF1 Match egg donation program – established by Dr. Randy S. Morris – has revolutionized the treatment of infertility by helping 100s of women who have been unable to conceive. Today, women diagnosed as hopelessly infertile have been able to conceive and carry a baby to full term through IVF using donor eggs. IVF1 Match maintains a large database of preferential egg donors helping donors and recipient parents discover one another.Studies have shown that using quality donor eggs in conjunction with IVF is less expensive and more successful than repeated and failed IVF cycles using the intended mother’s own eggs.IVF using donor eggs was introduced over two decades ago and 1000s of hopeful parents have realized the opportunity of conceiving and carrying a baby to full-term.For the foreseeable future, IVF using donor eggs will continue to play an integral role in treating women who have been previously diagnosed as hopelessly infertility. – Dr. Randy S. Morris, Founder and Medical Director of IVF1

Candidates for IVF Using Donor Eggs

Typical recipient candidates for IVF using donor eggs are women who have been diagnosed with Diminished Ovarian Reserve (DOR) – poor quantity and quality of egg production – including those women experiencing:

  • Premature ovarian failure, also known as early menopause
  • Poor response to ovarian stimulation medications
  • High day 3 follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) levels
  • Very low antral follicle counts through ultrasound
  • Advanced maternal age, typically after the age of 33, a woman’s ovaries will produce eggs that are progressively poorer in quality

Some other reason donor eggs are used in conjunction with IVF:

  • The woman has no ovaries, but has an intact uterus
  • To prevent a genetic condition from being passed on to the child
  • Menopause
  • Chemotherapy history
  • Genetic disease history
  • Multiple IVF failures

Choosing Your Egg Donor

IVF has compiled extensive information on how intended parents should research and seek an egg donor.

  • It is imperative that you research potential egg donors with your life partner.
  • You must collaborate on this mission together from day one.
  • Selecting your egg donor will be based on the totality of the discussions you and your partner have during the process.
  • Begin with a broad spectrum of characteristics selected by both you and your partner.
  • Don’t be steadfast about your initial selected characteristics.
  • Be advised, it is very common for people to begin with a list of preferred characteristics only to pick a donor that is completely different from their selected traits.
  • A donor’s unique quality – one that hadn’t been considered – reached out to the recipient parents.
  • Consume and digest all research that is available to you about the potential egg donor’s entire family.
  • Remember, physical characteristics have a tendency to skip generations.
  • Your future baby’s physical health – not his/her physical beauty – has overwhelmingly become today’s egg donation recipient’s focus.
  • The concept of using a donor egg to conceive a child is no longer a secret or taboo and, therefore, today’s parents are selflessly unconcerned with whether or not their child resembles them physically.
