How can you help?

If you are undergoing IVF through an Ovation IVF lab in Baton Rouge/Lafayette, Louisiana or Indianapolis, Indiana, you may be eligible to participate in the Ovation/Gameto in vitro maturation study by donating unused, immature eggs to be used for research.

There are several important things to know about participating in this study.

  • You will donate only immature eggs that will otherwise be discarded.
  • All mature eggs retrieved as part of your IVF cycle will be used for your own family-building efforts and will not be donated for use in this study.
  • The eggs you donate will be used for the purpose of studying in vitro maturation techniques only.
  • No eggs donated to the study will become embryos.
  • There is no compensation for participation in this study.
  • If you are selected to participate in this study, consent forms will be provided for you to sign.
