Using donated eggs in your treatment may be recommended if:
• You have no ovaries or have had them removed
• You are post – menopausal
• You have repeatedly tried to conceive unsuccessfully using IVF and you are producing few or low quality eggs.
The donor and the recipient are given medication to synchronize their menstrual cycles and for the recipient pills are given to prepare the uterus for embryo transfer.
There is an average 40 – 50 % success rate for each treatment cycle, as donor eggs come from women aged 35 or under.
