So, to avoid passing of the genetic disorder to the baby, a woman may opt for donor eggs with IVF.

A woman has to undergo several medical tests to check capability of her body to sustain pregnancy before she receives donated eggs. Likewise, medical tests are required for the donor woman as well. The decision to opt for donor eggs is not easy for a woman, but the conceiving becomes difficult when the supply of eggs gets diminished. Egg Donation tends to be a safe and trusted option in such case and when a woman has suffered recurrent pregnancy loss and undergone extensive treatment for infertility.

By freezing eggs, it becomes easy for the donor to go for a screening process, start medication to retrieve her eggs and get them frozen and ready to be used by the willing couples.
