Providing advanced fertility services out of our exclusive Santa Monica Clinic.

Using an Egg Donor

The technology used in egg donation has been a staple of fertility therapy for over 25 years and is recognized as highly effective. For women who are over the age of 45 (or who do not have viable eggs of their own), using an egg donor greatly increases the chances of creating a pregnancy. In fact, success rates for IVF procedures using donated eggs is over 70% for SMF patients. Dr. Jain is also internationally recognized for his work providing treatment for women over age 45, helping them achieve pregnancy with frozen donor eggs.

Financial Concerns

In most cases, the intended parent(s) retain ownership of all the eggs retrieved from a selected egg donor during a treatment cycle. However, this may be cost prohibitive for some patients. If financial constraints are a concern, a shared donation program may be the ideal solution. In shared donation, eight of the retrieved eggs are fertilized and the resulting embryos are used in IVF treatment for one set of parents. The remaining unfertilized eggs are used by another set of parents or frozen so they can be made available at a later date. This way, the expense of egg donation is shared between multiple patients.

Scheduling Challenges

Patients do not have to be local to the Santa Monica, California area to benefit from egg donation. Carefully screened donors are consistently available through well established agencies giving patients a range of egg donor candidates from which to choose. This provides greater scheduling convenience for patients who travel from outside of Santa Monica, out-of-state or internationally, to receive expert fertility treatment at Dr. Jain’s clinic. Patients from out of town may also choose to use frozen eggs from our frozen donor egg bank for greater convenience since these are immediately available at SMF.

Donor Egg Bank

Frozen Donor Egg Bank & Egg Donation Egg donation allows women to become pregnant even when they lack eggs of their own, or their eggs are of poor quality. In addition to fresh donor eggs, frozen donor eggs offer an alternative to traditional egg donation. Frozen eggs allow for ease in cycle planning and are immediately available from a variety of donors. Pregnancy rates from frozen eggs are comparable to the nationally published rates reported for fresh donor eggs.
