Donor Egg Program
Donor Egg Treatment
Egg donation is an effective treatment for infertility caused by decreased ovarian function. This is a problem that can occur at any age but is much more common in women in their late 30s and 40s. Fortunately, for women unable to conceive using their own eggs, donor egg offers the highest pregnancy and delivery rates of any fertility treatment and still allows for a woman to carry a child.
Shady Grove Fertility has become the leading provider of donor egg treatment in the United States, performing over 1,000 cycles last year alone. Shady Grove Fertility’s success stems from their uncompromising pregnancy and delivery rates as well as their unique financial programs which help make treatment more affordable.
Until recently, egg donor treatment was unaffordable for the vast majority of patients. In 2008, Shady Grove Fertility revolutionized donor egg treatment by developing innovative solutions to overcome the cost and donor availability issues commonly associated with traditional donor egg. This means that many more patients are able to pursue treatment than ever before.
Shared Donor Egg
Shady Grove Fertility conducted a retrospective analysis on thousands of donor egg treatment cycles which proved one donor produced enough eggs to share with up to three recipients without a compromise in overall success rates. With this information, Shady Grove Fertility developed the Shared Donor Egg Program which helped reduce the cost of treatment by up to 50% and increased the availability of donor eggs.
Shady Grove Fertility’s donor egg program has grown significantly since shared donor was introduced and over 70% of our patients now choose to share a donor.
Patients have three options within the Shared Donor Egg program.
- 1:1, unshared – the recipient keeps all of the eggs from a donor
- 1:2, shared – the recipient shares the eggs with another recipient
- 1:3, shared – the recipient shares the eggs with two other recipients
Shared Risk 100% Refund Program for Donor Egg
It’s unfortunate that many insurance companies do not cover the cost of this expensive, yet highly successful procedure. To help ease the financial burden for patients, Shady Grove Fertility’s Shared Donor Egg program can be combined with the Shared Risk 100% Refund Program for even greater savings. The Shared Risk 100% Refund program entitles the patient to undergo up to 6 cycles of fresh or frozen donor egg treatment as well as any subsequent frozen embryo cycles and receive a 100% money-back guarantee if a baby is not delivered.
Frozen Egg Bank
Another emerging breakthrough is our ability to now successfully freeze a woman’s egg. With this technology, patients how have to option to choose fresh donor eggs or frozen donor eggs. Both fresh and frozen donor eggs offer similar success rates and give patients a wide variety of donors to choose from.
As you begin your donor egg treatment at Shady Grove Fertility, you will make three important choices.
- The type of donor treatment (shared vs. non-shared and frozen vs. fresh)
