Using an Egg Donor in Wisconsin

What is Egg Donation?
Egg donation is an assisted reproductive technology procedure in which one woman donates her healthy and viable eggs to another woman, who then undergoes an IVF cycle so she can give birth to a child. Women may be candidates for egg donation if they have a low ovarian reserve, premature menopause, or a genetic problem that prohibits them from using their own eggs.
Intended parents can use a known or an anonymous egg donor. Known egg donors are women the intended parents know personally, such as friend or a family member. Some people may feel uncomfortable asking someone they know to serve in this capacity. In this case, they may prefer to work with an anonymous egg donor. Anonymous egg donors donate through a fertility clinic or an egg donor agency, and their identities are not revealed to the intended parents.
