In some cases, the woman may be unable to produce eggs for an assisted
reproductive technology (ART) procedure or the man's sperm may
be unable to fertilize her egg.
In these situations, egg and sperm donors can
provide a solution. Choosing a donor is a sensitive process that should be done
with care, planning, and patience. We help match donors with patients. Our
experience enables us to account for all of the legal and emotional issues at
The process begins when we retrieve the egg or sperm from the donor. For the
female donor, this is done through follicular aspiration, a relatively painless
process that removes the egg through the cervix.
The male usually collects sperm through masturbation. The egg is usually used for an
ART procedure, while the sperm is often used for artificial insemination. The
best egg donor candidates are young - ideally in their early twenties. Chances
for a successful pregnancy vary, so please contact us for more information.
