Ask the Docs: Donor Egg and Donor Embryo IVF – Information for Donors and Recipients

On June 29th, 2021, Drs. Anatte Karmon and Emily Goulet hosted a Facebook Live Session entitled: “Donor Egg and Donor Embryo IVF – Information for Donors and Recipients,” with guest speaker Tiare Brown. Tiare Brown is the Third party Coordinator at FIH.

During this session, the doctors talked about the process and perspective for donors and recipients and answered questions such as “What is a donor egg cycle?” and “When does someone come in for a donor egg cycle?”

A donor egg cycle is when someone opts to use the eggs of someone else. Eggs are extracted, fertilized, and transferred into the patient or a gestational carrier.

They also explained and discussed: the reasons for a donor egg cycle, the difference between a fresh vs frozen egg cycle, the typical length of time to complete an donor egg cycle, common side effects, risks, costs, if donor eggs are covered by insurance, and also the anticipated success rate for pregnancy.
