El Paso, Texas Egg Donation
According to the Assisted Reproductive Technology Report, the Southwest Center for Reproductive Health in El Paso, TX, did 18 donor egg IVF cycles in 2010, 14 with fresh donor eggs and 4 with frozen donor eggs.
Choosing an Egg Donor
If you are considering using an egg donor, you have a few options. You can use a known egg donor, someone you and your partner know donor personally, such as a friend or relative. An anonymous egg donor is someone you choose through an egg donor agency or fertility clinic. In this instance you will not know your donor’s identity. This type of egg donation usually occurs through an egg donor agency. You may choose to do a fresh donor egg cycle or a frozen donor egg cycle.
Egg Donor Agencies and Clinics
Egg donor agencies and clinics match up prospective parents with egg donors. You can choose an egg donor with certain characteristics, such as race, ethnicity, and level of educational. Egg donors are generally young women in their 20’s, and are required to undergo physical and mental screening prior to being accepted as a donor.
There are a number of Texas egg donation agencies and Texas fertility clinics that offer egg donation. In El Paso, the Southwest Center for Reproductive Health offers donor egg.
Some couples prefer working with fertility clinics because everything can be taken care of in one place, like diagnosis, treatment, egg donor selection and screening, and the IVF procedure.
