Egg Donation + NGS process

  1. First contact.
    Validation of medical information and screening

    To start the program, you need to contact by email or WhatsApp the coordinator of Forsa Fertility. He will provide you with a list of tests that you need to do before arrival as well as a questionnaire that you need to fill out. After the validation of your records by our doctor, we will set up the first appointment with you (depending on the reception hours and availability of our doctor).

  2. Consultation and
    IVF treatment procedure.

    The first visit includes: consultation with our gynaecologist, medical tests (serology + smears + karyotype + blood tests + hormonology + sperm collection). At the time of the consultation, our gynaecologist will establish the protocol for you in advance. According to the stimulation protocol, you will know the date of the IVF and the transfer.

  3. Endometrial preparation

    The donor will take the drugs for the growth of the follicles (oocytes), these will be the hormonal injections. We will monitor the development of follicles. For IVF to be successful it is necessary to obtain a few mature eggs during a menstrual cycle. 

  4. Donor’s egg collection

    In the IVF program, the transvaginal puncture of ovarian follicles is the final stage of stimulation for a donor. The procedure is carried out simultaneously with the collection of sperm from the intended father. Puncture of follicles during the IVF process has the only purpose – collection of a sufficient number of mature oocytes from the donor for their subsequent fertilization in the laboratory. The ovarian puncture is performed under general anaesthesia.

  5. In vitro fertilization

    In vitro procedure is carried out by the embryologists in the embryological laboratory. After the oocytes aspiration, they are combined with the husband's sperm and placed in an incubator-thermostat where fertilization takes place.

  6. Embryo culture

    On the second or third day after fertilization, the embryos are assessed for the feasibility of their further cultivation. If there is a sufficient number of dividing embryos, they are placed in the special medium and cultured for two or three additional days.
    The purpose of extended culture is to select for transfer the embryos that have reached the blastocyst stage and will give a higher chance of pregnancy.

  7. NGS

    This procedure is carried out in the embryological laboratory: experts take material for analysis on the fifth day of embryo development. The process is fully automated which excludes the impact of the human factor. The material is obtained from the outer layer of the embryo due to which the risks for its further development are minimized. Since in vitro embryos can live up to five days, and the analysis takes time, a cryo cycle is performed. Embryos are frozen ultra-quickly and then transferred in the next cycle – in the period most suitable for conception. Thus, doctors can carry out the NGS procedure and better prepare a woman for pregnancy: stabilize hormonal levels, make sure the endometrium is ready for implantation.

  8. Embryo transfer

    The embryo transfer procedure does not require anaesthesia as it is absolutely painless. With the help of a small-diameter guidewire, a catheter with the special medium is inserted through the cervix into the uterine cavity where one or more embryos are placed. After the end of the embryo transfer procedure, a woman can go home in a few hours.

  9. Pregnancy test

    After the embryo transfer, assessment of the level of chorionic gonadotropin in the blood is the most reliable method for determining early pregnancy. After carrying out the embryo transfer in the infertility treatment program, it is recommended to determine the level of hCG in the blood on the 12-14th day.
