Donor Egg Recipient
At Chicago IVF, we’re pleased to help couples and individuals grow the family of their dreams with our donor egg program. With a proven track record of helping families conceive, Chicago IVF is an international destination for those seeking donor eggs. Our egg donor program team can assess your situation, help match you with eggs provided by a donor of your choice, and customize the best fertility treatment plan for you.
When Is an Egg Donor Recommended?
Your fertility specialist may recommend an egg donor in certain cases of female factor infertility, including for those patients with poor quality eggs that have not responded to fertility treatment or those with no viable eggs. Egg donation is also used in LGBTQA family building, specifically for same-sex male couples who will work with an egg donor and gestational surrogate to have a baby.
All donors are pretested and screened, and recipients can review these profiles. The entire process is kept confidential and anonymous on both ends, and we follow the highest standards for state-of-the-art preservation to ensure optimal success rates.
What Is the Difference Between Fresh and Frozen Donor Eggs?
Choosing whether to receive fresh or frozen eggs is a personal decision made by the intended parent(s), depending on their individual needs. Both have their advantages, and we’ve provided a list of each for your consideration below:
The Advantages of Choosing Frozen Donor Eggs
- We can guarantee six high-quality eggs while providing information on the eggs and their donor
- We can perform an immediate transfer without having to wait for the donor’s cycle
- Frozen donor eggs are typically less expensive than fresh donor eggs
- There are fewer cycle cancellations when using frozen donor eggs are used
The Advantages of Choosing Fresh Donor Eggs
- Patients may be able to ask the donor additional questions if they wish
- There is a higher chance of being able to have biological siblings with a fresh egg donor cycle
- Patients will receive all eggs retrieved from their egg donor’s cycle

Fresh vs. Frozen Donor Eggs
Choosing whether to receive fresh or frozen eggs is a personal decision made by the intended parent(s), depending on their individual needs. Both have their advantages, but with frozen eggs, we’re able to guarantee six high-quality eggs, provide information on the eggs and their donor, and perform an immediate transfer without having to wait for the donor’s cycle. Typically, using frozen eggs is less expensive than using those from a fresh, stimulated donor cycle.
