【What is Egg Donation?】
The average female is born with about 2 million eggs. By puberty, this number decreases to about 200,000. Then only a small number of the eggs naturally ovulate for the woman's monthly period. The remaining eggs gradually become extinct in the ovaries. Egg donors are those who give eggs that would otherwise become extinct. They are given to help couples who need an egg. The donor's egg will be fertilized in vitro with the sperm of the client (male). The embryo will then be implanted in the female client's uterus. The female client will take the pregnancy to term and give birth. This is the objective of infertility treatments.
The newborn child will be registered as the legitimate child of the client couple. The egg donor will have no rights nor obligations to the donated egg and newborn child.
There are many women who have problems conceiving a child. It can be due to ovarian cancer, premature menopause, or other disease or congenital condition affecting the ovaries and preventing pregnancy. For a couple on the verge of giving up after many years of infertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization and expending a lot of effort and money, a donated egg is the only hope to attain their dream. We are helping such couples attain their dream.
【Is donating eggs safe?】
・For egg donors, the major concerns would be whether it is safe for the donor and whether it would make the donor infertile.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which supervises public health in the U.S., has not reported any long-term risks, such as infertility, as a result of donating eggs.
・Our partner clinic that removes the donor's egg is a highly specialized medical institution in Hawaii. The highly experienced staff will monitor you very closely and give you instructions and prescriptions suiting your physical condition and minimize any side effects.
Many women wanting to be pregnant have tried infertility treatments or in vitro fertilization for years. Many donors and clients have experienced donating or receiving eggs. If there really are any serious side effects or if it is not a safe procedure, no one would try in-vitro fertilization (infertility treatment). This means donating eggs is indeed safe.
・Donors who register with us will sign an egg donation contract with the client, then receive an insurance policy for donors. (We pay for the insurance. The donor need not pay anything.) We will take utmost precautions during the egg removal process and effectively handle any side effects such as over stimulation of the ovaries caused by the egg removal process.
・We provide complete support even be on weekends or evenings.
・All medical expenses as directed by the doctor and all expenses of the egg removal procedure will be covered by the recipient or agent. The donor need not pay for anything.
・We also cover round-trip transportation costs (as determined by us) from your home for all necessary visits to the clinic (or lodging) for medical exams, checkups, and the egg removal procedure.
