IVF with donor eggs is an in vitro fertilization program, in which the female donor's oocytes are used. Donor IVF program provides an opportunity for a woman to become a mother, even though she has a medical condition, where her own sex cells can not be used for fertilization. For example, when a woman is diagnosed with genetic disease.
