Egg Donation – “PRIDE”

babyfeetwithflower-donoroocytesPRegnancy Initiation with Donated Eggs – our donor egg program is natural outgrowth of our comprehensive fertility treatment. It represents a significant advance in fertility treatment as its high success rate is largely independent of the recipient’s age.





Who are the Egg Recipients?

PRIDE was developed to help women who otherwise have little chance of becoming pregnant due to one or more of the following factors:

  • non-functioning ovaries
  • advanced age, above 42 years
  • genetic abnormality
  • repetitive failure to conceive with other fertility treatments with their own eggs, including IVF and GIFT


Who are the Egg Donors?

historyformsThe CNY Fertility Center is actively recruiting and screening young, healthy fertile women between the ages of 20 and 32. Potential egg donors go through a rigorous screening process before they are accepted into our program. Although egg donors are compensated financially, we have found that the majority of women who become egg donors are motivated by a strong altruistic desire to help infertile women.

The recruitment process includes medical, genetic and psychological screening as well as personal interviews and a consulting psychologist when appropriate. Routine lab tests include: blood type and Rh factor; rubella; complete blood count; and liver function test (ALT). In addition, all donors must test negative for the AIDS virus, Hepatitus B and C, Syphilis, CMV and STDs such as gonorrhea and chlamydia. All ethnic donors are tested for Tay Sacs (Jewish donors), Thalassemia and Hemoglobinopathies (Mediterranean descent) and Cystic Fibrosis. These tests are repeated every six months, or before any donation, for as long as the donors participate in the program.

Donors are screened and selected according to the regulations of the New York State Department of Health, standards of the AATB and guidelines of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
