Criteria for egg donors:

Our compassion egg donors are aged under 30, with an average age of just 25. They are fertile, with at least one child of their own. They are also attractive, intelligent and healthy. They are being checked with a complete medical evaluation by our proffessional doctors. Also we are checking the donors shouldn’t have any family history regarding hypophrenia.Thus, they can not meet the recipient couples, but in the other hand if the recipient brings the donor with her to the treatment then its up to them, that is to say its accepted.

The physical characteristics of the egg donors, such as the skin color, eye color, hair color and the body type, are selected as similar to those of the couple as possible. Additionally, the ethnical origin, blood type and the other physical characteristics are selected as in concordance with the couple as possible.

Tests that are being evaluated from the donors:

The donors are examined with respect to infectious diseases (HIV, Hepatitis B and C, Cytomegalovirus, Syphilis, Chlamdydia) and genetic diseases (Karyotype analysis and Cystic Fibrosis analysis); and screened for Thalassemia and Sickle cell anemia (applicable for particular ethnic origins), whose blood types and Rh conditions are determined.

After the donor pass all those steps and have been confirmed from the doctor we start the treatment with the donor before the recipient arrives to make sure the eggs will be ready for the treatment.

Criteria for egg recipients:

We accept women aged up to 50 who wish to receive donor eggs. You may be married, in a relationship or single.

Tests that are being evaluated from recipients:

Both partners are screened to determine their suitability for the donation process. They are evaluated and counselled in order to determine that they fully understand the nature of the process. The physical screening of the female partner includes examination by a gyneocologist and several tests such as:

  • Blood tests including, HbsAg, Anti-HCV, HIV,
  • Blood type and Rh factor,
  • TSH, T3, T4, glucose test.

The male partner is screened blood tests and will also have:

  • Semen analysis
  • Blood type and Rh factor
  • Blood tests including, Hepatitis B and C, HIV.

Preparatory duration for the Egg recipient:

After recieving the test results that we asked from the recipient we are managing a treatment schedule for each patient that it should be followed from a doctor in their own countries, its up to the patient if they want to be followed with her own doctor or the doctors that we could advice her from our own lists selected the nearest place or even the same city could be given as a choice. Or in the other hand there is another choice; we would send the prescription of the medicine on how you should take them so you will get prepared for the treatment.

Preparatory duration for the Egg donor:

An egg retrieval procedure comprises both the Egg Donor’s Cycle and the Recipient’s Cycle. Birth control pills are administered during the first few weeks of the egg donation process to synchronize the donor’s cycle with the recipient’s, followed by a series of injections. These injections may be self-administered on a daily basis for a period of one to three weeks. Next, follicle-stimulating hormones (FSH) are given to the donor to stimulate egg production and increases the number of mature eggs produced by the ovaries. Throughout the cycle the donor is monitored often by a physician using blood tests and ultrasound exams to determine the donor’s reaction to the hormones and the progress of follicle growth. When a “fresh cycle” is followed, the success rate with donor eggs goes up to approximately 80%. With egg donation, women who are past their reproductive years or menopause can become pregnant.

Cycle of egg donation:

The receiver is given estrojen (progynova) on ascending doses as soon as the donor starts with the egg augmentation treatment. Estrogen makes the intrauterine layer thicker so that the retention of the transferred embryos is ensured. On the same day the eggs of the donor are collected, her partner’s sperms are sampled and the fertilization process gets started. (ICSI process which is the fertilization procedure routinaly used in our laboratory). In cases of inavailability of sperm in the semen, it is obtained by surgical techniques and extracted from the testes or scrotum. In other cases, couples may choose to use donor sperm. The receiver woman usually begins to use progsterone via vaginal route on the same day as egg collection process.

The fertilized embryos are placed in a fresh cleavage medium and left to develop for several days before the transfer. The transfer is generally done on day 3 when embryos are normally developed to the 6 or 8 cell stage. In some cases, depending on the embryo quality, they are allowed to develop until day 5 up to the blastocyst stage that contain more then 100 cells. The administration of progsterone and estrogen is maintained after the process of transfer. 12 days following the transfer process, the pregnancy result is found out by analysing the ßHCG in the blood.

Note:It is often the case in IVF with egg donation that more embryos are produced than can be used in one cycle. When this happens, those embryos can be frozen and preserved for future use.

Also note that for both menstruating women and menopausal women, the treatment stages are the same. Both must take medication prior to the embryo transfers.

Embryo transfer:

A few days after the donor oocytes are fertilized by your partner’s or donor sperm, you will come to our laboratory for the embryo transfer. Transfer is a simple and painless technique but some patients require anesthesia to relax their muscles. On the same day the embryologist will give you information about the quality of embryos to be transferred. The proceedure is very similar to that of intrauterine insemination (IUI).

You have to drink approximately 1 lt of water before the transfer, as a full bladder allows the Doctor to identify the uterus using a transabdominal ultrasound more easily, it straigthens out the cervix and allows the transfer to go more smoothly.
