Who needs Donor Eggs?
Egg donation is the process by which a woman donates eggs for the purpose of assisted reproduction. In other words, a woman provides her eggs to another couple to help them in conception through in vitro fertilization or third party reproduction. The egg collected from the recipient need to be fertilized in a laboratory dish and the fertilized egg or embryo is transferred back into the uterus.
There are several reasons why someone might need the treatment with donor eggs. Some of the problems that egg donation overcome are as under:
- Poor ovarian reserve or poor egg quality
- Previous unsuccessful IVF attempts with own eggs
- Premature menopause
- Old age
- Increased risks of genetic abnormalities
How do we Match an Egg Donor with a Recipient?
All our egg donors are under the age of 32 years and preferably have children of their own, but this is not an ultimate requirement. In addition to it, egg donors have to undergo a process of medical and psychological screening to make sure they are fit and healthy to be able to donate. The process of egg donation in clinic usually consists of a series of blood tests and genetic screening to also ensure their eggs they will provide are healthy and suitable to be donated to another woman.
Our egg donor agency in India takes lots of details from the egg donors to ensure a very close match between donor and recipient is done properly. A photograph is used to match physical characteristics such as hair and eye colour, height and weight. Even the details about ethnicity are collected. Once we have found a suitable match, our art team will inform you to discuss the match at which stage you can decide if you wish to accept or reject the egg donation proposal.
Egg Donation – Pregnancy Success Rates
The average success rate is 25-40 % for each treatment cycle using donor eggs. This is slightly higher than the average success rate for conventional IVF across all age groups, as donor eggs must come from someone aged 35 or under.
Our goal is to make your journey as enjoyable and rewarding as possible. We understand the time and effort it takes to be an egg donor and we take care of all our donors with the respect they deserve.
