Multi Cycle Donor Egg IVF Programs


Shared IVF Donor Egg Program
  • The recipient is matched to an anonymous donor who undergoes a fresh IVF cycle
  • All eggs produced during the cycle are inseminated to create embryos for the recipient
  • Embryos are selected for transfer to the recipient
  • Any remaining good quality embryos may be frozen
  • If pregnancy is achieved, the frozen embryos are stored until the baby comes home from the hospital
  • If pregnancy is not achieved, the recipient can undergo frozen embryo transfers and subsequent fresh and frozen IVF cycles up to a total of 6 full cycles or until a baby is brought home
  • If all cycles available under the program are exhausted and a baby is not taken home, a full refund of the program fee will be issued
  • Benefits and Considerations
  • Many recipients find that they are more relaxed about the IVF process knowing that they have the potential for multiple IVF cycles with limited additional expense
  • Storage fees are not charged until after the recipient takes home her baby
  • Any frozen embryos remaining after the program is complete can be used for future frozen embryo transfers
  • The recipient may use a gestational carrier, if the carrier is approved by her physician
  • The recipient may use donor sperm, if desired
  • Full refunds are available for any reason the recipient decides to discontinue the program between cycles, partial refunds are available if the program is discontinued during a cycle
  • The recipient will not be able to file insurance for the services
  • If a successful pregnancy is achieved early in the program, the program fee paid may be higher than the fee that would have been paid if a single cycle(s) had been purchased (a typical single cycle fee starts at $23,400)
  • The recipient must enter the program by age 49 complete all cycles prior to her 52nd birthday
  • The recipient will need to meet physical requirements for the program
  • Any recipient who smokes will need to cease smoking through each IVF cycle
  • Any recipient may be removed from the program and her full program fee refunded if the physician feels a successfully pregnancy is unlikely to occur
