We have definitely seen an increased number of egg donation requests over the past couple of years from couples in Asia, Australia, the UK and elsewhere, and I do think that this is a trend that will continue.

For many couples, egg donation is the only viable option for pregnancy. This can be especially challenging for couples outside of the US. For these couples, their best chance for success is often to choose a donor in the United States and travel for their IVF procedure.
To date, Beverly Hills Egg Donation has registered intended parents from over 51 countries and has worked with international clients from all over the world to help them begin, or add to, their families. Most donor cycles take approximately 2-1/2 to 3 months from beginning to end (from the time a donor is chosen through retrieval and transfer), and most physicians will require the recipients to travel to the States only once. “Typically our clients are here for about a week, and some have come for as little as four days,” said Lisa Greer, Managing Partner and Co-founder at Beverly Hills Egg Donation, a leading egg donation agency based in Beverly Hills, California. “We have definitely seen an increased number of requests over the past couple of years from couples in Asia, Australia, the UK and elsewhere, and I do think that this is a trend that will continue.”
Egg donation is illegal or highly restricted in a number of European countries including UK, Germany, Austria, and Italy. Even in countries where the process is legal, there are often a number of restrictions involved that can delay the process indefinitely. Furthermore, some countries (including Canada) do not allow egg donors to receive any kind of monetary compensation, which makes it extremely difficult for couples to find viable candidates who are willing to undergo the procedure – which is time consuming and often invasive.
For this reason, many couples choose to seek help in the United States. IVF with anonymous egg donation is also the main assisted reproductive technology sought by Canadians traveling to the U.S, and is the most common procedure for 80% of cross-border treatments by Canadians.
