Donor Egg IVF

Success rates for IVF drop considerably after a woman reaches age 40, so some couples turn to eggs donated from a younger woman. In IVF with donor eggs, the process is exactly the same as described above except that the donor undergoes ovarian stimulation and egg collection. The donor eggs are then mixed with the male partner’s sperm and the embryo transferred into the woman’s womb.

Because the young donors will produce young eggs, the success rate for IVF with donor eggs is far higher.
