The success of egg donation.

The History of Egg Donation

About Our Agency

Creative Love Egg Donor & Surrogacy Agency is a warm and caring agency located in Florida. We thank you for considering us for your surrogate parenting needs. Surrogacy can be a complex process to navigate on your own from the medical, legal, psychological, and emotional aspect. However, surrogacy is an exciting and fulfilling option to create or expand your family. Surrogacy allows you to be a proactive participant in the pregnancy from the very beginning. Whether you're from the United State or from around the globe we welcome international intended parents to our agency.

The first pregnancy using donated eggs was reported in Australia in 1983.  The first successful Egg Donation transfer in the United States was completed in 1983 resulting in a successful Egg Donation birth on Feb 3, 1984 in Southern California.  Egg donation developed as an alternative to sperm donation and other fertility treatments for many individuals.  This was a breakthrough establishing changes for women who were unable to conceive children due to infertility reasons or concerns of passing on genetic disorders.  It has also allowed the gay and lesbian community the benefits of creating a family and allowing them to be the biological parent whether through egg donation, sperm donation or surrogacy.  Before egg donation came along infertile couples, gay and lesbian couples and singles only had adoption options to turn to.

Moving into the twenty- first century science has evolved in leaps and bounds when it comes to different fertility treatments available today.  It has allowed women that are past their reproductive years or menopausal the opportunity to become pregnant through egg donation.  Since the first egg donation birth in 1984 there have been over 50,000 live births resulting from donor eggs.  In the United States they have set laws and statues in many states.  Most states follow the Uniform-Parentage Act  (updated most recently in 2002).  This act is written that the Intended Parent is given complete parental responsibility of the conceived child born through egg donation.

With the success of egg donation in the United States and the favorable laws and guidelines in place more  people come from other countries that prohibit compensation be given to an egg donor and do IVF-Egg Donor cycles in the United States.  In the United States fertility medicine falls under the term, third party reproduction as a part of ART, Assisted Reproductive Technology.  The ASRM, American Society of Reproductive Medicine has set guidelines for the procedures, and the FDA has different guidelines  as well.

Nationwide egg donor cycles have a success rate of around 60%. Being that more and more people are turning to egg donation to build their families a donor registry has been set up by a women that conceived a child through sperm donation.  When a girl elects to become an egg donor and passes all medical, physiological and genetic screening she can then decide if she would prefer to remain anonymous through the cycle or prefer to be a known donor and meet with the intended parents.  Either way the donor is assigned  a number that is given to the parent as well as the donor.  If the donor decides to register on the donor registry as well as the intended parent they can find each other through the number they were assigned during the cycle.  If the donor cycled with other families it gives the child conceived an opportunity to locate donor-siblings.
