IVF egg donation at Dallas IVF can be accomplished using a known/directed or anonymous egg donor. Known egg donors can include relations to the recipient, such as a younger sister or a cousin. Directed donors can also include friends. If a woman does not have a known egg donor or prefers to maintain complete anonymity with the donor, she can choose a donor through an agency. Dallas IVF works with several large donor agencies in the region. At Dallas IVF, we have maintained a 70-80% pregnancy rate over the last decade with our egg donor program.
Irrespective of whether a couple chooses a known or anonymous egg donor, the donor needs to meet the same screening criteria. The egg donor will automatically be excluded if they smoke cigarettes, have irregular menstrual cycles, are obese, have a history of a sexually transmitted or infectious disease, or any medical problem in their family that indicates a significant chance of passing the disease on to the offspring.
