Is egg donation only for women over 40?
Egg donation is not only for women over 40.
There are many reasons why women require the use of donor eggs. Some women are born without ovaries, or with ovaries that don’t function properly, while others have had their ovaries damaged by disease or cancer treatment. Some women may even carry a genetic condition that prevents them from falling pregnant naturally.
Others may need donor eggs to help fall pregnant due to menopause. Menopause doesn’t just affect women in their 40s and 50s, as it can also affect women anywhere between 20 to 30 years old, sometimes even younger. In fact, it is estimated that one in 1000 women will suffer from premature menopause.
Fertility First’s donor egg program is designed to help all women gain access to quality donor eggs, at an affordable cost without the need to travel overseas or join an extensive waiting list.
