Donor Egg IVF: When It May Be Indicated
The age and quality of a woman's eggs greatly affect her ability to become pregnant and to carry a pregnancy to term. Women are born with all of the eggs they will ever produce. After a woman begins to menstruate, an immature egg matures each month and is released from the ovaries if a woman is fertile. As women age, the quantity and quality of the eggs decrease. By age 35, most women have a substantial decrease in the quality of eggs produced; and the chance of obtaining a successful pregnancy starts to decrease significantly. Using donor eggs overcomes the problem of decreased egg quality and/or quantity due to age or to other medical conditions and allows many women who could not become pregnant with their own eggs to become pregnant very easily using eggs from a donor.
