Do you need an Egg Donor?

Family Beginnings, PC offers anonymous and directed (i.e. known) egg donation.
The process can take three to four months from start to finish due to need to have appropriate counseling, testing, and coordination of donor and intended parent’s menstrual cycles. We take a significant amount of time to screen donors to meet FDA and our practice requirements. We provide a lot of ‘hand holding’ to help them through this process, as well has help the intended parents navigate this journey. There are many indications for egg donation to build your family. Most commonly factors that affect egg number and quality, such as increased maternal age, play a role.

Potential reasons to need donor eggs:

  1. Advanced maternal age
  2. Premature ovarian failure (i.e. menopause < 40 years of age)
  3. Prior failed IVF
  4. Poor egg/embryo quality with prior IVF
  5. Same sex couple
  6. Gestational carrier where female intended parent has issue with eggs

Our donor coordinator evaluates potential donors before we place them on the list to be viewed by prospective intended parents. We tend to have donors that are between the ages of 21 years and 32 years of age. Most are in college or college graduates. They have been screened medically and meet FDA requirements for egg donation.

Evaluation and testing of egg donors:

  1. Extensive medical and family history
  2. Infectious disease risk assessment
  3. FDA required testing for Hepatitis B and C (antibodies and DNA testing), HIV I and II, syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, blood type, and Cystic Fibrosis
  4. Pelvic ultrasound to confirm normal uterus and ovaries, Antral Follicle Count (AFC) for ovarian reserve
  5. Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) testing of ovarian reserve
  6. MMPI testing and counseling with our LCSW

If you need a donor, please contact our donor coordinator, Renate, at renatedonahue@ivf-indiana.com.

We look forward to working with you to build your family!

The Family Beginnings Team.
