Feeling the Holiday Blues? How to Become a Parent with Donor Eggs in 2021

December 9th, 2020

As stockings are hung and lights are placed, the hustle and bustle of the holiday season tend to be at the forefront of everyone’s minds.

Everyone, that is, except for individuals and couples trying to have a baby.

For any person struggling with infertility, holidays can be one more reminder of what you don’t have and the dreams you long to fulfill. It’s hard to get into the holly-jolly state of mind when all you really want is a positive sign on your pregnancy test.

As this year ends, why not take the opportunity to prepare for the next? With 2021 on the horizon, now is the optimal time to begin thinking about your future fertility plans.

When you’ve tried incessantly to get pregnant to no avail, frozen donor eggs are an ideal solution.

If you’re ready to try and conquer your holiday blues with dreams of possibilities, why not consider making donor egg treatment a part of your New Year’s resolutions?

What Makes Donor Eggs a Good Fertility Treatment?

You’ve tried tracking ovulation, taking fertility medications, and even IVF—yet you still don’t have the baby you long to hold.

If your eggs are non-viable or you have unexplained infertility, it’s possible some of the more common fertility treatment methods, like IUI and IVF, won’t work for you and your partner.

As you exhaust these options, it’s not unusual to feel defeated by the thought of never having a baby.

Thankfully, egg donation has proven to be a trusted solution for these situations. Our industry-leading average pregnancy success rate of 65% supports this claim. In fact, we’re so confident in our process that we offer an “Assured Refund” Financial Plan. The plan guarantees that you’ll be able to have your baby or you’ll get your money back.  

Furthermore, all of our financial plans are backed by our “Blastocyst Guarantee,” which ensures each egg lot you receive produces at least one blastocyst-graded embryo. If your egg lot does not produce a viable embryo, you’ll receive a new shipment for free.

A developed blastocyst is a crucial component in many successful embryo transfers. By guaranteeing you at least one of these fully developed embryos, we can help you have the best possible chance of conceiving.

Can Anyone Use Donor Eggs?

Donor egg is an ideal solution for most individuals struggling with fertility issues. However, some people may benefit from the process more than others.

While donor egg is needed by all of our gay couples, women who have the following conditions are optimal candidates for donor eggs:

  • Over the age of 40, have premature ovarian failure or low ovarian reserves
  • Genetic conditions that can be inherited
  • Prior treatments for diseases like cancer
  • Diagnosis of unexplained infertility

How Do You Get Started with a Frozen Donor Egg Cycle?

At Donor Egg Bank USA, we understand how challenging infertility can be. For this reason, we’ve sought to make donor egg treatment as seamless as possible. We’ve created a user-friendly “Simple as 1-2-3 Egg Donor Process” to guide you through the beginning of your donor egg experience. The three steps in this process include:

Step 1: Enroll

The first step you’ll take is to enroll in our frozen donor egg program. This free process can be completed entirely online. You’ll provide some basic demographic information to help build your profile, and we’ll provide access to our online donor database.

While this step can be completed directly through our website, our team is available to guide you if you have questions.


Step 2: Select

Once you have access to our easy-to-use donor database, the next step is to pick the best donor for your family.

We’re proud to have the largest selection of frozen egg donors in the industry. We have a beautifully diverse group of more than 430 donors who have already undergone their extensive screening requirements and egg collection procedure.

No matter what qualities you’re looking for in a donor, we have the right individual for you.

Step 3: Receive

Once you’ve selected your donor, your chosen egg lot will be removed from storage and sent to your fertility clinic for thawing and fertilization. Many of our partner clinics have earned our esteemed “Seal of Quality Assurance” in oocyte warming, oocyte cryopreservation, or both.

This expertise allows your eggs to be safely thawed without any risk to their physical integrity. Once your fertility clinic receives your eggs, you can undergo your embryo transfer when the time is right for you.

Start Preparing for Donor Egg Success Now

If you’re waiting until 2021 to start your donor egg process, you don’t have to postpone preparing for your donor egg cycle. There are plenty of simple steps men and women can take now to increase the odds of a successful embryo transfer later, such as:

  • Discontinuing smoking
  • Limiting alcohol and caffeine
  • Eating a healthier diet with lots of leafy green vegetables and healthy fats
  • Starting an exercise routine
  • Working to achieve healthy weight goals (your BMI should be between 18.5 – 24.9)
  • Minimizing stress and practicing self-care

Getting Through the Holidays

The holiday season is a trying time for individuals and couples wishing for a baby. These difficulties are made worse by the flood of children at family get-togethers, pregnancy announcements on social media, and questions from other people about when you plan on having kids.

To help decrease the amount of discomfort you feel throughout the holidays, it’s vital to have a plan in place.

Try doing activities that will make you feel good and take your mind off your conception journey. A great suggestion is to volunteer at a local non-profit organization. Don’t be afraid to pamper yourself, either. If the pressure of the holidays is becoming too much, treat yourself to a special gift or a relaxing dip in the tub.

Something else to keep in mind during the next few weeks—it’s okay to say no. If holiday get-togethers and responsibilities are proving too much, clear some obligations off your plate and decline an invitation or two.

Besides, in the year of COVID-19, you’ll have the perfect excuse to avoid frustrating family events if they prove too much.

Your Fresh Start Could Be Only a Clock Strike Away

As the ball drops on 2020 and we all receive the fresh start we’re seeking, allow yourself the joy and optimism that can come with possibilities for success.

If you’ve been struggling to conceive a child, next year could be your golden ticket to the family of your dreams, and frozen donor eggs are an ideal path to get you there. By following the simple steps outlined above, you could be setting yourself up for the greatest success of your life.
