Generation Next Fertility’s egg donor agency is among the largest and most successful in New York City. We actively recruit, screen and match anonymous donors at our facility, eliminating the need to rely on outside agencies. Following FDA guidelines, we complete a rigorous screening process to ensure our donors are free of physical and mental conditions and have a high likelihood of producing good quality eggs.
What is Egg Donation?
The egg donation process involves the selection of an egg donor by prospective parents from a database from which is “match” is made between the two parties. The eggs are later retrieved from the donor and made available to the recipient for use with in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment.
Reasons You May Need an Egg Donation
There are several factors that lead our patients to choose egg donation to have a child. These factors can include:
- A decrease in ovarian function due to age or disease
- Repeated IVF failure
- Genetic conditions precluding a normal pregnancy
- Male same-sex couples or single males wishing to have a baby
Egg Donation FAQs
- How are egg donors screened?
Before we accept any woman into the egg donation program, we carefully screen each prospective egg donor, while abiding by FDA guidelines. Our egg donor team conducts a thorough evaluation of each candidate that encompasses a medical screening, genetic evaluation, psychological assessment, personality test, and thorough review of the prospective egg donor’s background.
- What is the wait time for an egg donor?
Thanks to the large donor pool at Generation Next Fertility, we are able to match couples with prospective donors within 1-2 months of your initial visit. We provide patients with step-by-step support throughout the egg donor selection and implantation process.
- Will my baby from an egg donor look like me?
Picking the right donor and those primary attributes you choose to focus on is a personal choice. Some parents select physical characteristics in donors that are similar to theirs, others prefer to focus more on the donor’s intellect and personality, and some try to find a balance between everything they’re looking for. Our team will do whatever we can to find the perfect match for your needs and desires.
