How IVF With Donor Eggs Works at Our North Houston Fertility Clinic

How IVF With Donor Eggs Works at Our North Houston Fertility Clinic

In-Vitro Fertilization, otherwise known as IVF is one of the most in-demand fertility treatments we offer at our clinic in The Woodlands and Kingwood. We have demonstrated impressive IVF success rates as well. Here is how In-Vitro Fertilization with donor eggs works and who might be a good candidate.

Undergoing IVF with Donor Eggs

First things first, we must complete an evaluation with tests to help figure out which of our fertility treatments may be best for you. Once it has been determined that IVF is right for you, it is time to look for a donor. This stage is time-consuming, as we understand wanting to pick an egg donor that meets your needs and is FDA-compliant. On top of that, there is a legal process that must take place once a donor is found. 

Although this may seem like a lot, our caring team of fertility specialists will be there to support you every step of the way. 

The treatment cycle will finally begin once the egg donor and intended mother get their periods. Your donor will take hormones to stimulate her egg production. Much like the typical IVF treatment, we will retrieve the eggs once they have matured and then the intended father will offer a sperm sample in order to fertilize the eggs. In our onsite IVF lab, we will allow the fertilized eggs to develop until the day-5 embryo stage, otherwise known as the blastocyst stage, at which point we will complete Preimplantation Genetic Testing.

Who May be a Good Candidate for IVF With Donor Eggs

IVF with donor eggs may be ideal in many cases, including the following:

  • Women who have undergone cancer treatment, resulting in damaged or removed ovaries.
  • Women with a low egg count or who have entered early menopause. 
  • Women who were born without their ovaries as a result of a congenital anomaly
  • Gay male couples have also seen success with donor eggs and a gestational carrier.
