Egg Donation is the process by which a female donates the eggs to help another woman to conceive with the help of an assisted reproduction treatment.

The process of egg donation takes up to 3-6 weeks. Donor egg IVF treatment or test tube baby has the highest success rate of any fertility treatment.

  • Donated eggs are either frozen for future use or fertilized immediately for implantation in a recipient’s uterus to conceive.
