With success rates above national averages, our innovative programs attract patients worldwide. As a boutique agency and donor egg bank, we provide you with personalized care and support throughout the entire process. Below, we share some key considerations to help guide you as you prepare to browse our donor database.
The majority of egg donations are anonymous, however, we are happy to facilitate open or semi-open donations when both parties agree.
When opting for an anonymous egg donation*, only non-identifying information will be shared for both parties in the contract. The intended parent will typically only view the donor’s profile through our online egg donor database.
When opting for an open or semi-open egg donation, the intended parent(s) and egg donor negotiate on the terms, whether that be contacting the egg donor for medical reasons only, the chance for the offspring to meet the egg donor if the child chooses, or to send photos of the child as they grow.
We are proud to offer flexibility within our programs, providing the egg donor and the intended parent(s) with the opportunity to address their desires. When browsing egg donor profiles on our database, the PDF profile includes the donor’s response on whether she is open to meeting the intended parent(s) and/or offspring in the future.
*Please note that although our team adheres to the highest standards to maintain donor and recipient confidentiality when facilitating the cycle, with advancements in commercial genetic testing, we counsel our egg donors and intended parents to understand that we cannot guarantee permanent anonymity in the future.
In a fresh egg donor cycle, the eggs are retrieved from the egg donor and immediately fertilized by sperm (from the male partner or donor) in a laboratory. Next, the embryos are grown to maturity for about 5-6 days, then the embryo(s) may be biopsied for preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy (PGT-A). At this point, if you've elected for a fresh embryo transfer,1-2 of the resulting embryo(s) can be transferred into the uterus of the recipient mother or gestational carrier. Alternatively, the embryo(s) may be vitrified and transferred at a later time, which is becoming a more popular option among IVF physicians.
The average number of eggs retrieved in a fresh cycle is 24, with 21 being mature, usable eggs. The amount of mature eggs retrieved varies, however, it's common for intended parents to receive between 15 and 21 eggs, typically resulting in 3-4 viable embryos. Many patients choose fresh one-on-one cycles with the hopes of being able to freeze additional embryos to try again for a genetic sibling in the future.
In a frozen cycle, the eggs are retrieved from the egg donor then immediately frozen using the vitrification process and stored until they are needed. Once you have secured a cohort of frozen donor eggs from our egg bank, we will arrange for the eggs to be shipped to your IVF clinic. Some clinics will wait until you are ready, then carefully thaw and fertilize the eggs with the designated sperm to create embryos. Alternatively, some clinics may thaw the eggs ahead of time, fertilize and grow embryos, perform PGT-A testing, and then freeze the blastocyst embryos. Then the patient has a frozen embryo transfer similar to the fresh cycles.
The Donor Nexus Egg Bank provides you with a cohort of frozen donor eggs from your chosen egg donor, which will be shipped to your designated fertility clinic. Our cohorts vary depending on the number of eggs available from the specific donor. If the egg donor has more frozen eggs available and you are interested, more eggs may be shipped for an additional cost.
For our donor egg cycles, we provide the option of paying your cycle fee in two installments. Additionally, we partner with CapexMD to provide our patients with access to fertility loans.
