Returns hope for those who thought it was impossible for them to have kids:
Egg donation is using the eggs of a preselected young female donor then fertilizing them by the sperm of the woman’s husband then transferring the embryos to the woman’s uterus.
Egg donation is an effective treatment for infertility caused by decreased ovarian function. This is a problem that can occur at any age but is much more common in women above 39 years old. Fortunately, for women unable to conceive using their own eggs, donor eggs offers the highest pregnancy and delivery rates of any fertility treatment and still allows a woman to carry a child.
Who needs egg donation?
Donor egg IVF is generally used in women with significantly diminished egg quality and quantity (poor ovarian reserve) or having high FSH and low AMH. This includes women with:
- Advanced female age, such as over age 40
- Premature ovarian failure (early menopause)
- Very poor egg quality
- Poor response to ovarian stimulation
- High day 3 Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) levels and low AMH levels
- Very low follicle counts on ultrasound
You can have your own donor, or you can have an anonymous donor:
The donors are young females, who passed medical history selection and blood tests for different transmitted diseases such as Thalassemia, Hepatitis B, HIV, blood group and others. They are anonymous. You can know the characteristics of the donors, age, skin color, weight, height, eyes, hair, but cannot see them.
It's better to use fresh preselected eggs (oocytes) from already screened and selected young donors, than using frozen eggs (frozen oocytes).
