There are many reasons why women need donated eggs.
Some women needing donor eggs have been trying to get pregnant on their own for several years with multiple miscarriages and shattered hopes, leading to physical and emotional trauma.
Some other women have a genetic condition, which requires them to use donor eggs to prevent the genetic condition from passing to their biological offspring.
Others have had cancer earlier in their lives and the procedures to cure them have left them infertile.
Many women receiving donor eggs are women whose own eggs are not capable of producing a successful pregnancy. The majority of these women are over the ideal age to use their own eggs to become pregnant. We have also helped many 30-year-old women with premature menopause.
