Expanding SGF’s donor egg treatment program creates greater access for interested egg donors and a larger selection for egg donor recipients.
SGF is one of only a few centers in the nation that selects and prescreens its own egg donors prior to making them available on their donor registry. SGF recruits and medically, psychologically, and genetically prescreens all prospective, ready-to-cycle egg donors prior to listing them on the SGF donor registry. Much more commonly, fertility centers rely on an agency to select donors, which adds significantly to the cost passed on to the donor egg recipient, also known as the intended parent.
Egg donors have made parenthood possible for thousands of individuals and couples at SGF. In fact, more than 10,000 SGF patients have become parents thanks to the generosity of egg donors, who are compensated generously by SGF for their time, effort, and commitment, not for their actual oocytes/eggs. SGF compensates its donors at various points throughout the prescreening and donation process.
SGF egg donor recipient, Brittany, describes her experience as, “I felt completely humbled by my entire journey…Here’s this egg donor, a woman who I know all about, yet she knows nothing about me in return, and she selflessly wants to help me fulfill my dreams of having a baby.”
Under SGF’s stringent screening requirements, any prospective egg donor between the ages of 21-34 who is healthy and has knowledge of their family history may be considered for egg donation. A short online application with a prompt reply identifies if a candidate is pre-qualified to become an egg donor at SGF. Once pre-qualified, all egg donor candidates must complete a comprehensive personal and family medical history questionnaire.
SGF’s Allentown office offers patients living across the Lehigh Valley access to the most advanced fertility care. The office is conveniently located off the Pennsylvania Turnpike along U.S. Route 222.
