Egg donation

What is Egg Donation?

The egg donation procedure is an IVF cycle with donor oocytes. Fertilization occurs using the eggs of another woman – the donor. Donor eggs are fertilized with the partner's sperm and injected into the uterus of the patient (recipient). In this case, the child will be completely genetic for a man, and for a woman – by blood only.

Who Is Egg Donation Treatment Suitable For?

The use of donor oocytes helps become a mother when the ovaries are completely insolvent. The fresh egg program starts with donor stimulation for the intended mother. Donors are asked for help when one of the partners has diseases that prevent natural fertilization, or genetic pathologies that the child can inherit. The chances of pregnancy are very high as all donors are at the peak of their reproductive health and undergo a thorough examination.

Advantages Of Egg Donation

  • IVF with an egg donor means that the woman's age does not matter for a successful conception.
  • The use of donor eggs is also very effective for women suffering from premature ovarian failure, repeated miscarriages and other problems.
  • With the help of donor eggs, women who cannot conceive a child with their own eggs can experience the joy of pregnancy and motherhood.
  • A big advantage is the ability to choose a donor after getting acquainted with the information about her age, blood group, eye and hair colour, height, education. This makes it more likely that the child will inherit the desired traits.
  • Since the program involves young, screened egg donors, there is no risk of chromosomal and genetic diseases for the unborn child.
