Every year, egg donation helps a growing number of individuals and couples realize their dreams of family. Here at Pinnacle Egg Bank, we are proud of the success rates of IVF with our donor eggs. We report birth rates that rank consistently among the highest in the nation.

What Is the Success Rate of IVF with Donor Eggs?

The overall success rate of live births resulting from IVF using our donor eggs is 65-70% at many of our affiliate clinics.  Using advanced vitrification techniques that enhance the preservation of eggs, as well as the skills and experience of clinics’ embryology teams, we are routinely seeing increased rates amongst our affiliates.

Our excellent donor egg IVF success rates are a result of many factors, beginning with our egg donors’ screening process. PEB generally considers women between the ages of 21 and 29 for egg donation as a woman’s egg reserve diminishes with age. Prospective donors are typically young university students or recent graduates in their twenties who have a genuine desire to help others.

rate of live births

All candidates undergo a rigorous screening process which includes:

Genetic screening to rule out common inheritable disorders

Reproductive health evaluation including blood tests and ultrasound to ensure sufficient number of egg follicles

Psychological and legal counseling to ensure donors fully understand the medical process involved and the risks and responsibilities associated with becoming an egg donor

A medical examination to assess general health

Drug testing, STI testing, and testing and other infectious diseases

Prospective parents can access a complete egg donor profile in order to select a donor with specifics of ethnicity, physical characteristics — like height, hair, and eye color – educational background, and personality traits. We also encourage prospective parents to prioritize their own wellness; epigenetics research has shown that the health and environment of the uterus that will be carrying the baby can also influence the child’s growth and development.

How Do Egg Donation Success Rates Vary by Age?

Birth rates are dependent upon the age of the egg used to create an embryo. As women age, the egg is more prone to make chromosomal errors leading to abnormal embryos and miscarriage. Eggs from women under the age of 30 represent the healthiest eggs and the ones most likely to result in the birth of a healthy infant.

How does frozen donor eggs’ success rate compare to other forms of fertility treatment? This option has one of the highest success rates for IVF. The following is a quick overview of average live birth rates per cycle:

  • 40% for women aged 35-37 using their own eggs
  • 20% for women >40 using their own eggs
  • 65% for patients using donor eggs at Pinnacle Egg Bank affiliates.
