The following is from an article in Time, the amount of women using donor eggs has grown over the past decade: 

Women tried to get pregnant using donated eggs more than 18,000 times in 2010, a dramatic increase from a decade earlier, according to a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Thursday.

There were 18,306 in vitro fertilization cycle attempts using donor eggs in 2010, up from 10,801 ten years earlier, according to the study done by researchers at Emory University and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
