Egg Donation has now become an essential part of fertility treatments. At IFC, egg donation is a relevant treatment option for women who are unable to conceive with their own eggs due to decreasing ovarian function. This usually occurs with advancing reproductive age, for women beyond 35.
Indications for Egg donation :
- Poor fertilization of eggs despite good quality sperm
- Failure to achieve pregnancy following repetitive attempts of IVF or other ART
- Premature ovarian failure
- Women over the age of 40
- Absent ovarian function due to previous exposure to radiation or surgery
- Presence of genetic disorder with high chances of being transmitted to the offspring via the woman’s eggs
- Elevated FSH levels on 3rd day of the menstrual cycle
- Poor responders (less than 3-4 eggs)
- Unexplained failure of IVF consecutively (3 cycles)
Egg Donation Success Rates :
The chance of pregnancy with egg donation is higher than normal IVF treatment mainly because egg donors tend to be younger and more fertile than women seeking IVF treatment with their own eggs. At IFC, recipients of all ages are achieving success rate of approximately 40% per embryo transfer. Even better, cumulative birth rate exceeds 90% when 3 to 4 ET are performed.
Our team is skilled at coordinating care for patients who live locally, out of state or abroad. The ability to offer both fresh and frozen donor egg cycles means that our patients have more options, more control and can begin treatment more quickly.
