The donor embryo program at Cooper Center for IVF is open to any couple or single woman who has decided with the help of one of our IVF doctors, that they wish to pursue pregnancy by using donated embryos. These embryos in our donor pool are all donated by couples who have previously undergone IVF, and no longer want the embryos for personal reasons.
Becoming a Patient
Before participating in the donor embryo program, you must be a patient at our center. This includes having an initial consult with one of our doctors to determine if donor embryos are a good option for you.
A list of available embryos is sent out to all potential donor embryo recipients. This list contains pertinent information about the physical characteristics, family medical history, and genetic screen of the couple who donated the embryos. We supply all the information we have. The recipients then make their choices based on this information, and selection is based on seniority, i.e. the position on the list.
