At the Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, we offer many avenues of helping our patients achieve a successful pregnancy. For many women, the route to having a happy, healthy baby involves using an egg donor.
When it comes to services involving egg donation, Phoenix has many clinics that can help, but none of them rival the experience and care offered at AZCREI. We have an almost 30 percent pregnancy rate for a single live birth, and in fact, we are amongst the top 10 fertility clinics in the country. Here are a few reasons women and couples in the Phoenix area are coming to Tucson for their infertility treatments—and why you should too.
Guidance Based on What’s Right for You
At AZCREI, we complete testing and procedures on an as-needed basis and will discuss all possible treatment options during the first appointment. We always start with the most basic tests and treatments first, moving forward with more involved procedures only when necessary until we achieve a successful pregnancy. So sometimes, egg donation might not even be necessary. However, it is an invaluable solution for women who:
- Have premature ovarian failure
- Have poor quality eggs
- Are aged 40 to 50 years
- Have a disease or disorder that they don’t want to pass on to their child
When these challenges are present, egg donation makes it possible to get pregnant with eggs provided by a screened, healthy donor. This woman can be a friend, family member, or anonymous donor. These women go through important tests, including a review of their medical history and a physical assessment, before they can donate.
Pricing with You in Mind
Because we offer our patients so many options, our fertility services don’t come at extravagant prices. While using a donor from an egg donation center can be pricy, we give patients the choice to use someone they know—and then work with them to find a viable candidate. Our team also helps them find affordable hormones and medication necessary to complete the procedure.
We never want cost to be a factor in our patients being able to fulfill their dreams of becoming parents. That’s why our team goes through extensive measures to work with patients and insurance companies to try to get as many tests and procedures covered as possible. It’s important to us to give our patients the hope of a pregnancy and eliminate the worry about financial costs and burdens.
An Option for LGBT Couples
It’s our mission is to help every couple who wants to experience the love and joy that comes with having a baby, including same-sex and LGBT couples. As part of our mission, we’ve tailored our services to offer several pregnancy options they may have not previously known about or considered.
Male couples will need to find an egg donor and surrogate in order to achieve pregnancy. The donated eggs can be fertilized with one partner’s or both partners’ sperm, and then placed inside the surrogate, who carries and births the baby. The egg donor and surrogate can be the same woman or two separate women.
It’s the ultimate gift to be able to help all couples start their family, and it’s our joy to walk with them along their pregnancy journey.
At the Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, we care deeply about every patient who walks into our office. We welcome Phoenix residents looking to grow their families through egg donation, and are excited about the opportunity to help you realize your dreams of getting pregnant and having a healthy, happy baby.
