Will my body accept a donor embryo?
The concern that the uterus will reject a donor embryo is a common fear amongst women who undergo fertility treatments with donated eggs or embryos. Here at Dogus Fertility Clinic we address these questions on regular basis. Many patients think that the embryo itself has matured enough to be able to detect the recipient’s body as a genetically foreign one. However, this is furthest from the truth. Resulting from the fact that half of genetic make-up of the embryo comes from the male partner, the embryo itself at that point, is genetically foreign to its own mother. Any uterus is ready and "immunologically privileged" for any embryo, and donor embryos have just as good a chance of implanting as normal embryos.
Great strides have been made to ensure the highest possible success rates of donor embryos, resulting in success rates of above 80% at Dogus IVF Clinic. Today we can confirm donor fertility treatments result in the highest pregnancy success rates among all other IVF procedures.
Many factors point towards the high success of donor embryos over all other techniques
- Firstly donor embryos result from fairly younger women, giving older women an equal chance of getting pregnant and having a family.
- Secondly, donors are screened and tested, resulting in only the best embryos being chosen as donor embryos for couples facing fertility challenges.
- Thirdly, donor embryos bypass all the challenges being faced by the couple and these may include low sperm count, reduced ovarian reserve, blocked fallopian tubes or endometriosis. Instead, all that is hoped for is successful implantation and the pregnancy reaching its full term.
Dogus IVF embryo donation high success rates are well known to our patients and public [Pregnancy Success rates at Dogus IVF]. Our clinic avails either fresh or frozen embryo options to couples from all over the world. Within the fresh Embryo donor treatment, the donor is brought to our clinic and administered with ten days’ worth of medication to make her eggs grow. The eggs are then harvested, and fertilized with the sperm of a male partner of patient's choosing. Then the three best embryos are transferred into the patient’s uterus. Any remaining embryos can be frozen for a maximum of two years, and upon returning, the couple may use these for their subsequent children.
One must remember that IVF is a wholesome treatment needing one to live a healthy lifestyle. Eating healthy, exercising regularly, reduction in intake of caffeine, alcohol and cigarettes, will all contribute to the successful achievement of a pregnancy.
