Listen to NPR report on our unique International Donor Egg program -->
The International Egg Donation Program at Shady Grove Fertility Center was developed in response to increased interest in our practice from infertility patients from the United Kingdom who were requiring donor egg. The program is designed to help patients overcome some of the barriers of seeking donor egg treatment in the UK, with the goal of being able to offer affordable treatment with minimal travel requirements, yet maximum success rates.

Patients traveling internationally find our program appealing for a variety of reasons:

  • Nationally and internationally recognized program of excellence
  • No wait for donors; treatment can be initiated within a few months
  • Online donor database
  • Formalized treatment coordination with UK fertility center
  • Streamlined treatment program requires only two trips to the US
  • Ease of access; we are located equidistant between three international airports.
  • Pregnancy rates -2002-2010. 63% clinical pregnancy rate/transfer; 46% delivery rate/cycle
  • Affordability – in addition to traditional egg donation treatment, two unique programs are available for egg donor recipients:
    • Shared Risk – flat fee paid for up to six cycles of treatment. The fee is only earned when a baby is delivered.
    • Shared Egg Donation – to reduce the cost of treatment by nearly 50%, donors are shared with up to three recipients. See Shared Donor program brochure for more details, success rates, and costs. This option may also be combined with a Shared Risk financial program, which then reduces cost significantly and guarantees a refund if a baby is not delivered.

About Shady Grove Fertility Center

Shady Grove Fertility Center is one of the premier Fertility and IVF Centers in the United States with regard to experience (number of treatment cycles performed) as well as pregnancy success rates as per the Society for Reproductive Medicine (SART).

To meet the complex needs of managing the donor egg cycles, Shady Grove Fertility has an entire team of healthcare professionals devoted specifically to the Donor Egg program. Typically, the same nurses managing IVF or IUI treatment cycles also manage the donor egg cycles. This compartmentalization was done at SGFC to ensure every nuance of the donor cycle is addressed, communicated and coordinated between the patient, the donor, patient’s team in the UK and our team in the US. Our Donor Egg Program meets the strict guidelines set forth by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) as well as the quality standards of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

This specialty focus on Donor Egg has enabled us to provide high-quality, personalized donor egg treatment to couples locally, nationally and internationally. Shady Grove Fertility Center’s donor program is the largest provider of donor egg treatment in the US performing over 600 cycles on an annual basis, with a pregnancy per embryo transfer rate of 65%.
