Using an Egg Donor in Asheville
Women with diminished ovarian reserve, premature ovarian failure or other problems with the quantity or quality of their eggs may look to egg donors as a way to build their families.
The most recent Assisted Reproductive Technology Report lists the number of egg donor cycles and success rates for each fertility clinic in the U.S.
Known Egg Donors and Anonymous Egg Donors
There are two different types of egg donors. A known egg donor refers to a woman you already know, such as a friend or family member. An anonymous egg donor does not reveal her identity to the intended parents. You can be matched with an anonymous egg donor through an egg donor agency or a fertility clinic.
Egg Donor Agencies and Clinics
Some couples choose to work with an egg donor agency for their egg donation needs, because they act as a mediator between the prospective parents, egg donor, and fertility clinic. Egg donor agencies are not regulated by state law, so before you decide on an egg donor agency, you should research it carefully and seek out recommendations from your fertility clinic.
Egg donor agencies match prospective parents with egg donors. Prospective parents can choose an egg donor based on characteristics like age, height, ethnicity, race, and even education level.
The following egg donor agencies work with prospective parents in Asheville:
- Baby Steps, LLC
- Carolina Conceptions
- The Donor SOURCE
Some couples prefer to work with fertility clinics for their egg donation. Fertility clinics offer the same services as an egg donation agency in addition to the actual egg donation procedure.
