Can you get pregnant at 50 with donor eggs

With over 1,000 initiated fresh and frozen donor egg cycles, Shady Grove Fertility’s Donor Egg Program continues to grow and produce the highest success rates for patients of all treatment types. While both in vitro fertilization (IVF) and donor egg treatment are very similar and use the same medical processes, the source of the eggs used is the differentiating factor between the two treatments. Depending on your age, the difference in success between autologous IVF and IVF using donated eggs can be significant.
Using donor eggs from an egg donor (ages 21 to 32) takes your age essentially out of the equation and increases your chances of success.
Shady Grove Fertility’s Shared Donor Egg Program significantly increases the number of patients that are able to access donor egg treatment by reducing the cost of treatment by nearly 50 percent for patients who participate in the 1:3 program. With the Shared Donor Egg Program, recipients can opt to share the eggs a donor produces, as well as the cost with one or two other couples. Shady Grove Fertility’s Donor Egg Program requires donors to be between the ages of 21 and 32, a population that experiences the highest pregnancy and live birth rates.

While many patients may not need donor egg treatment, if you are considering it, it’s important to understand the success rates and their impact on your fertility treatment. Generally, when a patient undergoes IVF treatment, the intent is to use her own eggs—this is known as autologous IVF.
The chart below shows the ongoing pregnancy per embryo transfer (ET) rate by age (this is a pregnancy reaching 20 weeks gestation or delivery). As a result, in 2014, women late in their reproductive years (older than 40 years) experienced a 50 percent ongoing pregnancy per embryo transfer rate versus an 18 percent success rate when using their own eggs. After reviewing traditional donor egg treatment cycles—in which one donor donated her eggs to one recipient—the data demonstrated that donors developed more mature eggs than one recipient would ever be able to use. To help ease the financial burden for patients, our Shared Risk 100% Refund Program allows the patient to undergo up to 6 cycles of donor egg treatment as well as any subsequent frozen embryo transfer (FET) cycles.
For many women using donated eggs, our physicians will recommend transferring a single blastocyst-stage embryo, also called elective single embryo transfer (eSET). However, we encourage you to consider this treatment approach from all angles and take into consideration the high success rates as part of your decision-making process. For others, especially women whose infertility is caused by a decrease in ovarian reserve and function, using eggs that another woman donated is an effective form of treatment.


With donors producing 18 eggs on average, we recognized that recipients could share the eggs from a single donor—this program changed the playing field and made conception with donor egg treatment affordable for many more of our patients.
Should you not deliver a baby or you opt to leave the program which you can do at any point, we will issue a 100 percent refund (some exclusions apply).
This is in contrast, perhaps, to transferring two or more embryos that may have been typical for women over 36 years of age when using their own eggs. Decreased ovarian reserve is a problem that can occur at any age, but is much more common in women in their late 30s and 40s. You may combine the Shared Risk 100% Refund Program with the Shared Donor Egg Program for additional savings. Deciding to transfer only one embryo may feel very risky, however, because recipients are using high-quality eggs from a younger donor, the data has shown that transferring more than one high-quality embryo increases the chance of high-risk multiples, and only has a slight increase in pregnancy rates. Fortunately, for women unable to conceive using their own eggs, donor egg treatment offers the highest pregnancy and delivery rates of any fertility treatment and still allows the woman to carry a child.
