Some women need donated eggs or eggs from other women. We have listed a few reasons:
- Women with premature ovarian failure – where eggs are absent in the ovaries before the age of 40 years.
- Women who are above 40 years and do not have eggs.
- Women with ovaries which have been removed for other reasons or destroyed by endometriosis.
- Women who have some genetic diseases and are at risk of transmitting their problem to the offspring.
What is the success rate of egg donation?
Egg donation has a high success rate of about 55-60% and almost an 80 – 90% success rate after four repeated treatment cycles.
