What is Egg Donation?

Egg Donation is a procedure where fertile women donate an oocyte or egg to help other women conceive. The egg donation method is a part of assisted reproductive technology or ART. The whole procedure involves a doctor who retrieves eggs or eggs from the donor and combines sperm with them in a lab for fertilization. The fertilized eggs or embryos are transferred into the recipient’s uterus. The implanting procedure is called IVF, which is implemented. Sometimes, eggs, embryos are also frozen for later use or implantation in different women.

Why Use an Egg Donor?

Egg donation is frequently used by women who can’t use their own eggs for various reasons such as ovarian failure, advanced age, or avoiding congenital anomalies in the fetus.

Usually, most women and couples turn to egg donation is due to their advanced age, which results in the poor quality of eggs. As women age decline after 37, the quality of eggs decreases and lessens.

Most couples who have poor-quality or no eggs but want a biological child with the help of a male’s sperm utilize this procedure.

Some of the other reasons which lead to the use of egg donation services are:

  • Women with no ovaries but have an intact uterus
  • Women with genetic abnormalities that they do not want to pass on to their children
  • Women over the age of 42

There are many questions when you are thinking about using an egg donor. At Yashoda hospital, our fertility doctors will advise you and clear your doubts as to whether you should make the decision or not.

What are the Egg Donation Requirements?

The doctors at Yashoda Hospital conduct rigorous medical screening for the women undergoing egg donation. The doctor conducts a physical examination, genetic screening, evaluation of medical history and family medical history, and ovarian reserve assessment to evaluate if she is likely to be a good donor candidate. Usually, healthy women between ages 21 and 30 are used for egg donation.

What to Expect From the Egg Donation Process?

Before the Procedure

Egg Donor may have to undergo different kinds of screening before the procedure, such as

  • Ovarian reserve testing: The doctor will analyze the quantity and quality of egg donor eggs
  • Infectious disease screening: The doctor will screen egg donors for diseases such as hepatitis B and C.

During the Procedure

  • Ovarian Stimulation: The egg donor is prescribed certain medications so that eggs are matured and eggs are prepared for fertilization. During her 2nd or 3rd day of the menstrual cycle, when the follicles look promising, then egg donor will receive an injection of hCG, which aid in maturing the eggs.
  • Egg Retrieval: After the injection, egg retrieval will be scheduled, during which the egg donor will be placed under sedation, and eggs will be collected via an ultrasound-guided needle procedure.
  • Sperm Collection: The semen of the man will be collected, and it will be washed using treatments, and then the eggs will be placed in a special culture for fertilization. The pregnancy will be conceived through an IVF procedure.
  • Embryo Transfer: If frozen embryos are used, then the fertilized eggs are frozen and stored for later use. After fertilization, our embryologist will select the healthiest embryos and transfer these to the uterus (women getting pregnant).

After the procedure

After the embryo transfer, you can start your normal daily activities. The success of any IVF procedure depends on various factors such as your age, cause of infertility, and previous treatment results.

That said, usually, IVF gives the best results for becoming pregnant.

Are there any Risks concerning the Procedure?

Eggs donation procedure is usually a low-risk procedure where people use donated before the doctor implants them by in vitro fertilization. The risks are the same as in the IVF procedure.

  • Spotting
  • Breast tenderness
  • Mild bloating
  • Mild cramping
  • Multiple births.
