At BHED, when a couple decides to use donor eggs, they can view a password protected database of potential donors. A tentative donor egg match is made when the recipient families decides to move forward with a specific donor. Our IVF coordinator will contact the egg donor to confirm her availability and begin the second half of the process of selling your eggs. Once it is confirmed that the egg donor is available for the recipient's necessary time frame, and has passed her FDA-required round of testing, the match becomes official. Sometimes donors are selected and match...
In a traditional cycle, one recipient is matched with one donor for one cycle. If a successful pregnancy is not achieved and all normal embryos have been used, the recipient is eligible for a second cycle with no agency fee.
In a shared cycle, two or more recipients will share eggs from one cycle with one donor at one clinic. Each recipient pays an agency fee and legal fees. Shared expenses include donor fee, donor insurance, and donor travel (if applicable). Medical expenses are determined by the clinic. This option is not subject to our free rematch policy unless specifically outlined in the agency agreement.
We work with some clinics that offer frozen eggs. The donor choices are limited. If you are interested in frozen eggs, please contact us. This option is not subject to our free rematch policy.
