Using an Egg Donor in Vermont

What is Egg Donation?
Egg donation is a fertility treatment in which one woman, called the egg donor, donates her eggs so another woman can conceive a child with them through IVF. Women may be candidates for egg donation if they have a low ovarian reserve, are going through premature menopause, or have genetic problems that would prevent them from using their own eggs.
If you are interested in using an egg donor, you have two options: a known egg donor or an anonymous egg donor. Known egg donors are women you know personally, such as a friend or family member. Anonymous egg donors are women who donate their eggs without you learning their identity. You can be matched with an anonymous egg donor through an egg donor agency or a fertility clinic’s egg donation program.
Finding an Egg Donor in Vermont
If you are considering using an egg donor in Vermont, your next step should be inquiring at your fertility clinic. There is one fertility clinic in Vermont that works with egg donors: the Vermont Center for Reproductive Medicine.
