What is the procedure of egg donation?
The process of egg donation starts with the selection of a donor. This donor can be anonymous or known person. The donor is approved after a series of medical and genetic screenings.
The donor’s ovaries are stimulated by a stimulation regimen to produce multiple eggs. These eggs are used for IVF or ICSI. The fertilized embryo is placed inside the woman trying to conceive.
Some couples have infertility issues in both partners. Such couples can opt for embryo adoption. The donation is usually done via anonymous donors. The adopted embryos are placed in the uterus of the woman who is trying to conceive.
The child will not be a genetic child of the couple but will still be their biological child
What are the success rates of donation?
The success rates can vary according to the age of the donor, and the number and quality of donated eggs and embryos.
Please consider counseling with your doctor to understand the implications of conceiving via donation
