Heartland Center for Reproductive Medicine:

Our Response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

HCRM is dedicated to keep our patients and staff safe and healthy during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. HCRM has policies and guidelines in place aligned with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local and state health authorities to help prevent the spread of illness. We are also adhering to recent guidelines that have been published by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) regarding the treatment of current and new patients.

Please review the new procedures we have put into place at HCRM:

1. All patients will receive a phone call 24-48 hours prior to the appointment and complete a prescreening questionnaire with questions regarding their travel history in the past 14 days and the presence of respiratory symptoms (fever of 100.4 or higher, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath) within the past 14 days.

2. All patients and visitors will complete the same prescreening questionnaire with a HCRM staff member prior to entering the clinic on the day of the appointment. Please allow for an extra 5 minutes prior to your appointment to complete the prescreening. It is possible that a patient may need to reschedule his/her appointment based on symptoms or travel history.

3. HCRM requests that patients come to the clinic unaccompanied, leaving their partners/support waiting for them at home or in their vehicles when feasible. We request that patients do not bring children to their appointment.

4. With the use of Telemedicine, we hope to continue to provide care to our new and current patients.

5. HCRM will reduce the frequency of clinic appointments during treatment cycle monitoring.

6. HCRM will frequently enforce infection control processes within the clinic, including good hand washing hygiene, frequent disinfecting of patient rooms and surfaces, and social distancing.

We at HCRM appreciate your ongoing support as we work together and do our part to "flatten the curve." Please contact our office at (402) 717-4200 for more information or any questions.

Receiving a Donated Egg

The egg donor program at Heartland Center helps patients struggling with infertility to conceive children using the egg of another female. Our egg donors can help these families in a huge way with a relatively simple process. Donors are kept anonymous, and their eggs are tested to ensure they are healthy and free from genetic diseases.

Why Work with Us?

We understand that there are many agencies that coordinate egg donation, and we believe that Heartland Center for Reproductive Medicine is the very best choice because of:

"The nurses and doctors are wonderful to work with."

My experience with Heartland has been fantastic. We are so lucky to have two successful pregnancies. It was always sad to leave the team at Heartland but for the best reasons, we were pregnant! I would and have recommended Heartland to anyone trying to start a family. They are a great support system.

Become a Donor

If it is determined that you are an ideal candidate for egg donation, you will have the chance to completely transform the lives of hopeful parents wishing to have a child.


Monitor Your Menstrual Cycle

The process begins with the monitoring of your menstruation cycle. You will use medications designed to stimulate the ovaries to produce a number of good quality eggs. All donors are closely monitored during this stage to ensure that the amount of hormones administered is correct.

HCG Injection

When blood tests and ultrasound monitoring suggest that the donor’s eggs have matured, she receives a human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) injection, which maintains her progesterone levels. This is the final step in egg maturity.


Egg Retrieval

About 36 hours later, the eggs are gently removed with an ultrasound-guided needle. Egg retrieval is a minor surgical procedure, and most women experience little to no discomfort.

Egg retrieval is an outpatient procedure. After your donation, you will be fully recovered in about one to two days and your next menstrual cycle should be completely normal.

What if I am an intended parent considering an egg donor?

Reasons to Consider
an Egg Donor

Recurrent Pregnancy Loss

Repeated miscarriages often indicate a chromosomal issue. This often means that a woman cannot use her own eggs and should consider a donor.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormonal disorder that compromises fertility by causing enlarged ovaries, cysts in the ovaries, irregular periods, and infertility.

Uterine Anomalies

Uterine malformations including fibroids, endometriosis, and septums can also affect fertility. If surgery is unsuccessful, many women turn to egg donation or surrogacy.

Premature Ovarian Failure

Premature ovarian failure (also known as early menopause) can prevent young women from releasing eggs normally. Many of these women also turn to egg donation and IVF

Older Age

As women age, the quality and quantity of their eggs begin to decline. If you are over the age of 40, an egg donor can provide the healthy egg needed for pregnancy.

Searching for an Egg Donor?
Here's Why You Should Work with Us 

Each egg donor who comes to Heartland Center for Reproduction must undergo thorough screening to ensure that that their age, physical health, psychological health, genetic makeup, and egg quality meets our standards. We only allow women who possess outstanding physical and emotional health to donate.
