What is Donor Egg IVF?
Donor Egg IVF is a fertility treatment that involves using eggs donated by a healthy, young person (the egg donor). These eggs are fertilized with sperm, either from the intended parent or a sperm donor, and then transferred into the uterus of the intended parent or a gestational carrier. It's a highly successful method that provides many individuals and couples a successful path to parenthood.
Who Are Our Egg Donors?
At Pinnacle Fertility, we work with many donor egg programs to offer our intended parents a diverse selection of egg donors, all of whom are young, fertile, and meticulously screened for the top genetic diseases. We work with both frozen and fresh donor egg options with accessible and affordable pricing.
Choosing Your Donor
Selecting the right egg donor is a crucial step. Intended parents should consider both medical and genetic history, and also contemplate personal and emotional aspects, such as the donor's physical traits and interests. Our dedicated team is here to guide you through this unique process.
Pre-Donor Egg IVF Considerations
Before starting Donor Egg IVF, some important considerations include medical testing, sperm-related preparations, and financial planning. Donor Egg IVF is typically not covered by insurance, but we partner with financing providers plans to assist you.
Who is Donor Egg IVF Treatment Ideal For?
Couples Facing Infertility
Donor egg IVF serves as a promising solution for couples experiencing infertility due to various factors, including advanced maternal age, poor egg quality, or unexplained fertility issues.
Gay Men Couples
For gay male couples wishing to become parents, donor eggs combined with a gestational carrier (surrogate) provide a way to have a child genetically related to one of the men.
Donor egg IVF provides a pathway to parenthood for single fathers, offering the opportunity to have a child with the help of a gestational carrier.
Donor Egg IVF Success Rates
The success rate of in vitro fertilization (IVF) using donor eggs is generally higher than traditional IVF procedures using a woman's own eggs, especially in cases where the woman's age or egg quality is a factor. Statistically, the success rates for donor egg IVF have been quite favorable, with an average live birth rate per donor egg IVF cycle often reported to be between 40% to 50%, and in some cases, even higher.

Real Stories, Real Success: Our Patients Speak
We can't thank you all enough for making our IVF journey such a positive experience. Your team's expertise and warmth meant the world to us. You made our dreams come true, and we're forever thankful.
THEY ARE AMAZING!!! I absolutely love this clinic and everyone who works here! Being a lesbian couple, we were nervous trying to find a fertility clinic for us.. they made us feel so comfortable right away! They are so caring and sweet! I definitely recommend this place!! && Dr. Z is the man!! Nicest doctor I have ever met! I would give them a 100 stars if I could!
Thanks to Dr. Dudley, we achieved a successful pregnancy, a dream that once seemed unattainable. His expertise and empathy made him not just a doctor but a beacon of hope in our most challenging times. We are profoundly grateful to Dr. Dudley and highly recommend him to any couple facing fertility issues!
We've worked with RGI twice now, and have had an excellent experience both times. Dr. Maseelall and her team have been amazing to work with. This time around, we were introduced to the "navigators" who essentially act as a liaison between us and the doctors, which was a change from the last time we were there. We found having access to a dedicated resource - even by text message - was a huge plus.
I highly recommend Dr. Dudley! He is one of the only doctors who explained things clearly, realistically, and positively. His bedside manner is outstanding. A defining moment (without disclosing my medical history) was when I explained something to him and he responded with "I believe in a women's intuition." He believed me, ran a quick test, and pivoted the plan. I can't recommend him enough.
My husband I went to Dominion after struggling with some fertility issues and multiple miscarriages. We couldn't have made a better choice! You can tell that the staff really care about their patients and make you feel at ease. At the beginning of the process, we were feeling a bit overwhelmed, but the doctors were understanding and great at explaining each step to us along the way. We now have a healthy baby boy and we could not be more happy and grateful to Dominion Fertility!!
