The first pregnancy from egg donation occurred in 1984. This is a very successful form of fertility treatment, which involves the use of donated eggs from an egg donor (usually a younger woman). The egg donor has eggs removed from her ovaries and the eggs are donated to the recipient woman. These donated eggs are fertilized with sperm, and the embryos created are placed into the recipient’s uterus. The sperm may be from the recipient’s partner or may be from a sperm donor. In some cases the embryos created are transferred to a gestational carrier (surrogate). If a pregnancy is established, the intention is that after delivery the recipient is the legal parent of the offspring.
There are many reasons why women and men visit our San Diego IVF center for donor egg, sperm, and embryo services.
Our San Diego fertility center is proud to provide fertility treatments using donor eggs, sperm and embryos. We also offer IVF with gestational surrogacy to help make the dream of parenthood come true.
Donor services at our San Diego IVF clinic provides a beautiful alternative to adoption. For hopeful parents who never thought they could experience the joy of pregnancy and childbirth, donor services offer a ray of hope.
