Thanks to egg donation motherhood is possible at any age!
Egg donation means the use of another woman’s (donor’s) egg during in-vitro fertilization in case of absence of own eggs. Thanks to this intervention, women are given a real chance of pregnancy and a healthy baby’s birth.
Egg donation has a lot of advantages, such as: obtaining of a sufficient number of eggs of good quality, and, accordingly the availability of additional healthy embryos in the cryopreservation process. Due to the fact that the eggs are taken from a young, healthy female body, it is less likely that the embryos develop with chromosomal anomalies from these eggs, and therefore the risk of self-abortions and congenital impairment is minimized.
Prior to this process the donor should undergo a detailed medical examination. After this, a controlled hyperstimulation of ovaries with gonadotropin shall be made to the donor. Stimulation causes the growth of multiple follicles in ovaries. The signs of egg donation include:
Premature ovarian failure;
Loss of the ovary/ovaries due to surgical intervention;
Late reproductive age/reduced ovarian reserve/menopause;
Avoiding the transmission of women genetic pathologies hereditarily;
Gonadal digenesis (congenital development defect)/ congenital absence of ovaries (aplasia);
Several unsuccessful attempts of in-vitro fertilization conditioned by eggs bad quality;
Radiotherapy or chemotherapy.
In our clinic the success index of cycles using donor eggs is 80%.
