California Egg Donation Program
HRC in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego
Donor egg in vitro fertilization (IVF) has allowed thousands of otherwise infertile couples to create families. Donor eggs are usually needed when woman's eggs will not fertilize and develop properly due to age, genetic abnormalities, damage from treatments such as cancer therapy, premature menopause or unexplained infertility. With egg donation, the father contributes genetically and the recipient mother carries the baby, bonding with it and experiencing the joys of pregnancy and of giving birth.
Donor egg IVF is often required by women in their mid to late 30s and those in their 40s. Unfortunately, there is a direct correlation between increasing female age and declining fertility. Donor eggs taken from a woman in her 20s are much more likely to result in pregnancy than a cycle without donor eggs in a 42-year-old woman.
HRC's southern California infertility clinics in Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego County, host one of the most successful donor egg programs in the United States and the world. We are at the forefront of advances in egg donation technology.
