Unlocking the mysteries of why women become egg donors
Over the years, advances in fertility treatments have made it possible for the USC Fertility team to help patients fulfill their parenthood dreams. Treatment options can include fertility medications, intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF) and third party reproduction, which may involve donor eggs. When you begin considering an egg donor, you may first want to understand the reasons why women become egg donors.
Our Los Angeles fertility doctors explain the need for egg donors
As part of the fertility evaluation, your doctor will complete a full workup on you and your partner before recommending any treatments. If your physician finds that female infertility plays a role in your issues with conceiving, considering an egg donor may be an important option to explore. Often, egg donation provides another option for women over 35, patients with a low ovarian reserve, individuals with low-quality eggs and those who can’t produce viable eggs due to cancer treatment or genetic issues.
