Why can I not have my own baby from my eggs? Why do I need an egg donor?

Very poor responders with advanced maternal age should consider egg donation as a first line of IVF treatment. However, other women willing to consider embryo pooling along with PGT-A testing to avoid chromosomal abnormalities should have an evaluation by their doctor to calculate the chance of having a baby with their own eggs. It is important that the embryology team at your IVF clinic is well-trained and has the latest equipment. An egg donor is needed when you have exhausted your treatment options with a well-trained IVF team that is ethical and transparent in explaining the chances of getting pregnant.
