The assisted reproduction treatment of IVF with donor eggs offers higher guarantees of success, because the eggs come from young healthy females.

- Genetic abnormalities that could be transmitted to offspring
- Low ovarian reserve
- Advanced maternal age
Therefore, IVF with oocyte donation is recommended in those cases in which the woman cannot get pregnant using her own eggs. This assisted reproduction treatment involves giving up the woman's genetic load, so it is quite complicated for many patients to assimilate.
