What is embryo donation?
People who have undergone in vitro fertilization (IVF) may have surplus or extra embryos that they wish to donate.
Mount Sinai Fertility has an anonymous Embryo Donation Program. Current or former patients may be eligible to donate remaining embryos for use by a third party; we do not accept donation of embryos created at other facilities.
We currently have a waiting list of patients who are interested in receiving donor embryos. It is difficult to predict the wait time to receive a donor embryo as donation is not predictable, but our estimation is 2-3 years. You and your doctor will determine whether you are a good candidate to be a recipient and you will then be placed on the Embryo Donation Waiting List. The counselling and medical screening process will be started when there is a potential embryo.
Please contact our Patient Liaison, Stacey at email@example.com if you would like to receive more information on this program or if you have been a patient at Mount Sinai Fertility and are interested in donating embryos.
