Donor Egg Program

Generations Fertility Care in Madison, Wisconsin, is pleased to offer a Donor Egg Program.

 

We currently have three options to obtain donor eggs:

  • Fresh donor eggs from a local anonymous egg donor
  • Fresh donor eggs from an egg donor known to the recipient
  • Vitrified donor eggs from a donor egg bank

There are advantages to all of these options and your doctor can further discuss which option is the best for your care when you meet at the clinic.

 

Patients who can benefit from this program include:

  • Women with a reduced amount of eggs or a reduced amount of quality eggs, which is called diminished ovarian reserve
  • Women who have experienced premature menopause, for known and unknown reasons
  • Couples who are known to carry genetic diseases in their family history

Generations Fertility Care is a member of the Fertility Preservation Network, and offers two packages through our Donor Egg Program:
