An Effective Solution for All Types of Families
What Can Egg Donation Help With?
Unsuccessful IVF AttemptsEgg donation is currently the most successful fertility treatment in existence today. For women who have tried multiple IVF cycles with no success, using an egg donor can help you grow your family.
Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (POI)Early menopause occurs when ovarian function ceases before the age of 40. Women with this condition can often successfully conceive using an egg donor.
Diminished Ovarian Reserve (DOR)In contrast to POI, women with diminished ovarian reserve experience normal ovulation and menstrual cycles. However, the supply and quality of eggs within the ovaries are decreased.
Same-Sex Male CouplesEgg donation can be an excellent option for same-sex male couples. The donor eggs can be fertilized by one or both partners before being placed into the surrogate's uterus through IVF, creating a genetic link to the child.
Single MenIf a single man decides he is ready to begin a family, using an egg donor is a popular option. The patient's sperm will be fertilized with donor eggs and then placed inside a surrogate's uterus.
Recurrent Pregnancy LossRecurrent pregnancy loss can occur due to genetic issues, environmental factors, structural problems, and more. Women who have experienced this are often excellent candidates for egg donation.
"If I Could Give More Stars, I Would"
Dr. Kristiansen and her staff are amazing! If I could give more stars, I would. For my first appointment, I went by myself and Dr. Kristiansen was so warmly, and non judgmental on every question I’ve asked her. Every visit since then, my fiancé have gone with me and everytime, the staff would hold conversations with us and answer any and every question we’ve had. All of her staff is lovely and amazing, but there’s two women I have to give credit to. Mayra and the phlebotomist. I don’t remember her name and I’m so sorry lol but those two ladies are heaven sent and I’m glad Dr. Kristiansen hired them. Her treatment plans work fast and she’s very affordable. I’m glad I’ve found her. Thank you❤️View On Google
I was very pleased with this office. Prior to coming here I visited other fertility locations in Houston and I never felt welcomed. It was as if I was just a number to them and that was it. I got the run around about why i could not get a quote. When I came to Dr. Kristiansen it was different. The entire staff was very friendly and gave me so much information the I felt like I had all my questions answered. Including pricing. I will definitely be using Dr. Kristiansen for my treatment once my husband and I are ready.View On Google

Selecting an Egg Donor: Finding the Perfect Match for You
How Are Egg Donors Evaluated?
Egg donors are carefully screened to ensure they are qualified to donate. A thorough medical evaluation will assess the donor's overall health and detect any infectious or hereditary diseases to determine if she is a viable donor candidate.
The family histories of potential egg donors are also evaluated to provide a better understanding of possible health conditions or genetic risk factors that could be passed on. By being thorough during screening, it ensures the highest chance of a healthy baby.
When it comes to selecting the right egg donor, mental health is also an important factor that must be assessed in order to determine candidacy. Donors need to undergo a psychological evaluation to ensure they fully understand and can fulfill their role as the egg donor.
What to Expect during the Egg Donation Process
"The Whole Team Is Extremely Patient and Caring"

Her nurse, Mayra Lopez, has been with me through every step of this journey and has simply been an amazing and constant source of support.View On Google
I wanted to share my experience with Dr. Kristiansen and staff. This team makes you feel first and important. This whole experience has its whirlwind of emotions and you can count on this team to keep you in the positive. I am one who has ALOT of questions and "what ifs" and wanted to thank Melissa so much for lending me her ear and being there when i was at my wits end. The whole team is extremely patient and caring. They make you feel like you are apart of the Dr. Kristiansen family. I would definitely recommend anyone and everyone to this clinic.View On Google
Egg Donation and INVOcell
INVOcell is a device that allows incubation of the sperm and eggs to take place inside the vagina. Dr. Kristiansen doesn't typically recommend INVOcell for donor egg cycles because the device can only hold a maximum of eight eggs. Egg donors usually produce greater quantities of eggs. If you would like to discuss this option with Dr. Kristiansen, you can do so during your consultation.
