Choosing to do in vitro fertilization (IVF) using donor eggs greatly increases the chances of pregnancy for women and couples who cannot use their own eggs. It is also expensive, but well worth the investment if the outcome is the birth of a long awaited baby, or babies!!
So what are the chances of getting pregnant when doing IVF with an egg donor? The national average is that 56% of all IVF cycles using donor eggs results in a live birth. Success rates vary among clinics and are influenced by variables that are important to understand before making a decision about which clinic you entrust with your care. You can research this data for yourself on the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology’s website at http://www.sart.org/find_frm.html.
