Using an Egg Donor in Kentucky
Egg donation is a process in which one woman—usually in her 20s or early 30s—donates her healthy, viable eggs to another woman so she can achieve a pregnancy with them.
You may be a candidate for egg donation if you have a low ovarian reserve, or if you have responded poorly in the past to fertility drugs or IVF cycles.
There are four fertility clinics in Kentucky, all of which work with egg donors. According to the 2011 Assisted Reproductive Technology Report, there were 32 fresh donor egg cycles and 31 frozen donor egg cycles in the state, for a total of 66 cycles.
Who Can Be an Egg Donor?
Egg donation works best when the eggs are high quality. For that reason, young women in their prime reproductive years are usually the best candidates.
You may choose to ask a woman you know personally to serve as an egg donor, like a friend or family member. You can also go the anonymous route—many clinics can match you up with an anonymous egg donor who will donate her eggs while keeping her identity hidden.
