Donor Egg Treatment FAQ | Questions from the Seminar in Ireland

5th May 2017

Shady Grove Fertility is a proud partner of Waterstone Clinic, formerly Cork Fertility, and through this partnership we are able to provide donor egg treatment to Irish patients. This past weekend, we co-hosted a free patient seminar at Lotamore House in Cork, Ireland. It was wonderful seeing past patients and their beautiful SGF babies and also meeting prospective new patients.  

We understand that choosing donor egg treatment in America can be a big decision; patients who have chosen our program have been very happy with our simplified process, high success rates, and money back guarantee option. Many Irish couples had similar questions during the seminar. Most commonly, how long will it take to complete treatment in America? And is there really a full money-back guarantee on donor egg treatment?

How long will it take to complete treatment in America?  

Shady Grove Fertility’s Donor Egg Treatment Programme is streamlined so International patients can expect only two visits to America. Amanda Segal, International Patient Liaison, is always available to help you to schedule your first visit to SGF. Your first visit is complimentary and will give you a comprehensive overview of the people and processes involved in your treatment cycle. During this visit, pre-cycle testing will also be performed on you and your partner. After this visit, you will be ready to pick your donor.  

With our programme, there is no wait to match with an egg donor. As soon as you make the decision to proceed with donor egg treatment, you will be provided with an outcome of screening that’s needed, which will optimize your chance of success. On average, most patients are able to undergo the necessary screening within 2 months, and then select an egg donor.

When working with a shared donor, the process will begin once the shared match becomes completed—meaning two or three recipients match with the same donor, based on which shared program you are participating in. Most shared cycles are able to come together and have the correct number of recipients within 4 weeks.

Patients can expect the process to take 4 months, from the time they initiate donor egg treatment to the embryo transfer.

Can I really get a full refund on donor egg treatment? 

Yes. Our Shared Risk 100% Refund Programme for Donor Egg Treatment is designed to help you feel at ease while seeking the right treatment for you. Nearly 82 percent of International patients enrolled in Shared Risk take home a baby and those who don’t are guaranteed a full refund (some exclusions apply).

Our exclusive Shared Risk 100% Refund Programme includes up to six cycles of fresh donor egg treatment and an unlimited number of frozen embryo transfer (FET) cycles for a single package price. This innovative programme is designed to increase your opportunity to achieve the outcome you want—a baby—while managing the cost of donor egg treatment if you happen to need more than one cycle to conceive. 

Donor egg treatment in America makes parenthood possible for so many International couples. It’s natural to have questions and we are always here to answer all of them. We hope to connect with you soon and help you get started!
