Egg Donor Conception on Long Island

Egg donation is a form of third-party reproduction in which a woman donates her eggs to help someone else have a child. Egg donation is typically recommended for aspiring families facing female fertility issues, such as advanced reproductive age, medical conditions, or maternal genetic abnormalities, as well as same-sex male couples and single men.

Selecting an Egg Donor

  • Anonymous Egg Donors

    Anonymous or unknown egg donors are chosen from our facility’s Egg Donation Program. RMA of New York – Long Island selects only the most qualified donors, who go through a meticulous screening process. Although the donor’s identity is not revealed to the recipient(s), you will have access to information about the donor via a donor profile, which includes details such as physical characteristics, personality, hobbies, education level, and more.

  • Known Egg Donors

    A known or directed egg donor is typically a close friend or family member of the recipient(s) who agrees to donate their eggs. If a known donor is used, RMA of New York – Long Island will assist with all medical needs to complete the donation process.

  • Agency Egg Donors

    Our facility only works with licensed egg donor agencies in the state of New York. If this type of egg donor is selected, our team will coordinate with your agency of choice.

  • My Egg Bank

    Our facility partners with My Egg Bank which provides recipients with the opportunity to use eggs from pre-screened donors. These eggs have been retrieved and frozen and are immediately available for shipping to our clinic where they will be stored until ready for use.n.

Shared Cycle vs. Non-Shared Cycle

In a non-shared cycle, all of a donor’s eggs are donated to a single recipient. In a shared cycle, the donor’s eggs can be shared between two recipients. The main benefit of a shared cycle is that it lowers the overall costs for both recipients. If you are interested in learning more about a shared vs. non-shared cycle, please connect with our egg donation team.
