Donor Egg IVF is an IVF cycle that uses another woman’s eggs (usually a young healthy and fertile donor) which is then fertilized and implanted into the recipient’s uterus.

Whether from age or medical conditions, some women’s eggs are unable to produce a successful pregnancy. In these cases, eggs from a thoroughly vetted egg donor can be used for in vitro fertilization (IVF). Sperm and your donor eggs are combined in the embryology lab to create fertilized embryos. The embryos are then placed into the uterus of the carrier to develop into a pregnancy. IVF has been used for 30+ years. It’s the most common method of medically assisted pregnancy, with the highest success rates.

The Oma difference
  • We help you review information on egg donors’ health history, family history, education, and life story, so you can make the most informed decision.

  • Oma uses Oma Sperm InSight™ and our proprietary AI microscope, which together help our embryologists select the most promising sperm cell for IVF with donor egg.The microscope helps them analyze 20x more sperm cells than a traditional microscope in the same amount of time. Oma Sperm InSight is our AI technology that identifies the most promising sperm based on criteria from the World Health Organization.

  • Embryo incubation uses the latest technology that allows for precise control of the environment and maximum chances for your embryos to mature.

  • Pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT) to assess embryo viability is included and done with top partner labs.

  • Gold-standard method intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is always included at no extra cost. ICSI has a ~72% fertilization rate compared to ~60% for regular IVF.

  • Work with the reputable donor egg bank of your choice*. We’ll coordinate with them so the process is seamless for you.

* Donor eggs from external sources must be purchased separately.
IVF with donor eggs may be right for heterosexual and LGBTQIA+ couples and singles who
  • Have tried to conceive for 6+ months.

  • Need medically assisted pregnancy to have a child.

  • Haven’t had success with other fertility treatments (like medication and insemination).

  • Have PCOS, endometriosis, low sperm count, or diagnoses that can affect fertility.

  • Repetitive IVF failures

  • Age & diminished ovarian reserve

  • Male couples

  • Single Men

  • Cancer survivors

The Donor Egg IVF Process

  • 1
    Evaluation Cycle

    During the evaluation cycle, you’ll take estrogen and we’ll use blood tests and ultrasounds to observe how your uterine lining is developing. This is a donor egg treatment process to see what levels of hormones you need to successfully prepare for the embryo transfer. This cycle usually takes four to six weeks.

  • 2
    In Vitro Fertilization

    The donor egg and sperm are combined to fertilize the eggs.

  • 3
    Embryo Transfer

    This outpatient procedure doesn’t require sedation––it’s quick and often compared to the sensation of a pap smear. Any high-quality embryos left over can be frozen for use in future IVF cycles.

  • 4
    Pregnancy Testing

    After the transfer, our team will administer pregnancy tests and other monitoring as needed to care for your developing pregnancy.
