Donor Egg and Fertility
The advances in fertility treatment over the past decade have brought success to many couples in their efforts to create a family. One cause of infertility, diminished ovarian reserve or poor egg quality, may not respond to conventional treatment with fertility medications. Unfortunately aging of the ovary and subsequently the woman’s eggs is not a reversible problem. Egg donation offers the best success for diminished ovarian reserve / ovarian aging. Pregnancy success rates with egg donation at CARE have been consistently high. CARE is happy to work with either anonymous agency donors or a donor that is known to the patient (i.e., a relative or friend). Egg donors are typically young, healthy women under the age of 32 who do not have any history of reproductive issues. They should be of average body weight and a non-smoker.
