Women who require egg donation as a form of fertility treatment or supporting their IVF are often those who have reached an advanced maternal age. Generally, woman may begin to consider egg donation in their late 30’s. Egg donation is also recommended if people have had several failed treatments with their own eggs or have chromosomal or genetic challenges that they wish to end with the solution of egg donation. Another reason is the onset of premature ovarian failure or early menopause.
