IVF with Donor Eggs or Sperm

When are Donor Eggs or Sperm Needed?

Some couples and individuals will need donor eggs or sperm to successfully undergo IVF. At the Fertility Institute, we believe everyone should be able to have a baby at a time that’s right for them. As part of your treatment with us, we can help you find and utilize donor eggs and sperm to create a pregnancy.

IVF with Donor Eggs

A donor egg or embryo may be needed for women of an advanced age or with decreased ovarian reserve. Donors go through a comprehensive screening process to ensure that only healthy eggs are donated, allowing you to find a match based on your preferences.

IVF with Donor Sperm

Our specialists can use donor sperm to fertilize mature eggs during IVF treatments. If a male partner has low sperm production, donor sperm may be needed to successfully complete an IVF cycle. Donor sperm can be needed for LGBTQ+ and single female patients.

How to Find a Donor

If you need eggs or sperm to complete your IVF cycle, the Fertility Institute can help you find a donor you feel confident about. We have strong relationships with reputable donor egg banks across the country that can ship eggs from out of state if needed. Additionally, our specialists can facilitate the IVF cycle when the recipient brings their donor to the program through direct egg donation.
