International Egg Donation Program
RSC’s international egg donation program provides ease of access to affordable donated eggs that are not widely available in many parts of the world.
RSC has streamlined the treatment process for international patients so few trips to our San Ramon clinic are required. Given the logistics and need for precise communication, our team will coordinate the entire experience for you. Many international couples are now enjoying pregnancy and parenthood as a result of this program.
RSC’s International Egg Donation Program began in response to increased interest from infertility patients abroad who were seeking donor eggs. We designed our program to help patients overcome some of the barriers of seeking treatment abroad, with result of offering maximum success rates, affordable treatment, and minimal travel.
