Egg donation occurs when a woman donor provides eggs to another woman recipient to increase the odds of conceiving for the recipient female. Egg donors are young women typically in their 20s who undergo IVF treatment. To donate eggs, the donor gives herself ovulation stimulation injection medications that will cause her to mature multiple eggs within a single menstrual cycle. The eggs are harvested surgically under anesthesia. The extracted eggs can be frozen for use at a later time or fertilized with sperm to create an embryo. Prior to embryo transfer, the recipient takes hormone medications including estrogen and progesterone for a few weeks to prepare the uterine lining for implantation of the embryo into her uterine cavity. Since egg donors are young, most egg donor cycles result in enough eggs and embryos to have multiple children from the same egg donor cycle, since extra embryos can be banked for the future.
