IVF Egg Donation Success Rates in the USA

The IVF egg donation success rates in the US may vary between states and particular clinics. They usually depend on IVF center experience, donor selection process, the kind of program you undergo, additional procedures done by in vitro laboratory, semen quality and the age of recipient (the oldest woman who got pregnant thanks to egg donation was 66 years old). They are counted as an average birth rate (rarely pregnancy) per transfer and may reach up to 55%. Of course the younger eggs the better.
