Egg Donation Facility at Dogus Fertility Clinic, Cyprus
Is it safe to donate egg or use the donor’s egg for IVF? All the things you need to know beforehand!
Egg Donation process in vitro fertilization (IVF) has permitted many infertile couples to form families. Donor eggs are typically required when female’s eggs will not fertilize and mature appropriately due to age, genetic disorders, damage from treatments such as cancer therapy, early menopause, or unexplained infertility. With egg donation, the father adds genetically, and the receiver female carries the baby, feeling the pleasure of pregnancy and of giving birth. Dogus Fertility Clinic in Cyprus, has a facility for IVF, including successful egg donation programs with advance technology for infertile couples of the opposite or same sex couples.
Selecting an Egg Donor:
Dogus Fertility Clinic works with several donor egg agencies and has a broad selection of egg donors around Cyprus. Donors of an egg are usually between the ages of 20-30, have a healthy weight, non-smokers, no chronic clinical or genetic diseases, and are physically and emotionally fit. Once the eggs are recovered from the egg donor, they are parted from the follicular fluid and arranged for fertilization by our donor egg program experts.
Egg Donation with the help of ICSI:
If the eggs are due for intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), sperm will be inoculated directly into the eggs before incubation. The infertility professional will discuss each couple before the cycle when ICSI is needed.
The eggs are retained in incubators after they are fertilized and stay there for 3-5 days (sometimes more extended periods are required). Often a growing embryo will progress to the blastocyst stage by day 5. Blastocysts are stronger and generally produce better outcomes. Since they are more liable to implant and mature, less can be transferred, thus decreasing the chances of multiple births.
The couple comes to the clinic where the fertility expert consults the number and quality of the embryos accessible for transfer or freezing. Since multiple pregnancies are highly possible with egg donation, we often suggest transmitting two embryos to the womb. The rest of the viable embryos can be frozen for further use. The embryos are transferred into the recipient's uterus using a small catheter in a painless technique, using sonogram guidance. Embryo transfer is a painless practice demanding less than 10 minutes. The patient returns to the Dogus fertility clinic for a pregnancy testing as required.
Costs related to egg donation:
The recipient couple pays all the egg donor's expenditures, including ovulation induction drugs. (Please see the Dogus fertility clinic IVF Cyprus information webpage, which includes the cost for donor egg.)
Egg donation success rate:
Luckily, IVF success rates for a donor egg cycle are equal to the egg donor's age group. For example, if the eggs of a 21-year old are used in a 42-year-old recipient, the success rates will equal the donor's early 20s age group and are high. This means that the usual IVF success rate for a woman aged 42 could rise from 5 percent to 50 percent, and with our success rates at Dogus for older women and our many years of experiences chances are much highe.
