Egg Donation in Phoenix
Southwest Fertility Center, Ltd. offers an egg donor program to infertile couples that require this treatment option. Egg donation is used when a woman has decreased ovarian reserve, premature menopause, advance reproductive age, or other medical indications. Following the recommendation from the physician, these couples have shown success rates up to 10 times higher than standard vitro Fertilization (IVF).
The Selection Process
Southwest Fertility Center, Ltd.’s diverse egg donor program offers infertile couples a selection from a number of available anonymous egg donors. Our egg donor coordinator, prior to being accepted into the program, initially screens each donor. Our screening guidelines are in compliance with the guidelines of the Society of Assisted Reproductive Technologies and the US Government’s Food and Drug Administration. Once an egg donor has been accepted into the program, couples may review the available profiles and photos to select an acceptable donor. Further comprehensive medical screening will then be performed just prior to your treatment cycle. Consents forms will be reviewed and signed by the egg donor and recipient couple.
The Treatment Cycle
After completing comprehensive testing on both the egg donor and recipient couple, the egg donor and recipient menstrual cycles are synchronized to prepare the couple for her fresh embryo implantation. The egg donor will begin her protocol of infertility medication injections, and when she has produced mature eggs, will undergo In-vitro fertilization to have these mature eggs removed from her ovaries. In the laboratory, the donor eggs are then fertilized with the recipient husband’s sperm and the resulting embryos are transferred into the recipient woman’s uterus. Any embryos remaining from the treatment cycle may be then frozen for future treatment options.
Prospective Egg Donors
Egg Donors and recipient couples will retain their anonymity throughout the egg donation process. Only non-identifying information is shared with the donor or recipient. Egg Donors selected by our program will be compensated $3,500, following the egg retrieval procedure.Requirements for Egg Donors
