Egg Donation (FAQs) Frequently Asked Questions-

Know everything about Egg donation process at Indira IVF with Top Egg Donation FAQs mentioned below-

Are fresh eggs better than vitrified eggs?

Pregnancy rates using fresh and vitrified eggs from egg donation are very similar. The only difference may be in the number of eggs harvested. What is certain is that once the eggs meet the spermatozoa (are micro-injected), the evolution will be the same, whether fresh or vitrified eggs.

Does the age of the recipient influence the success rate of egg donation cycles?

The age of the recipient woman influences the success rate of egg donation cycles because some studies have detected changes in the uterine level with age that may be responsible for a more marked decrease in the embryo implantation rate from the age of 45.

How many times do I have to have IVF before opting for egg donation?

It is difficult to give an answer to this question, because the treatment of fertility induces a physical, emotional and economic investment. Except in the case of menopause, you can never say that the chances of success are zero with your own eggs. However, the chances of successful IVF diminish with age, especially if the woman is over 39 years of age and the results of the ovarian reserve test are unsatisfactory (low AMH and /or high FSH values).

What are the success rates of IVF with egg donation?

The age of the woman is decisive for the chances of pregnancy in any ART treatment. For example, for women over 40, the success rate of IUI is on average less than 5% per cycle. With IVF, statistics indicate 20% success per cycle. IVF-Egg donation makes it possible to multiply the chances of pregnancy by using the eggs of a woman between 20-30 years old.

What are the risks of getting pregnant with twins with egg donation?

As with conventional IVF, the possibility of a multiple pregnancy is due to the transfer of more than one embryo to multiply the chances of pregnancy. Egg donation therefore does not increase this risk. The solution is to limit the transfer to a single viable embryo.

How many IVF-Egg donation attempts can be made?

The number of IVF-Egg donation attempts is the result of the will of the recipient and the doctor. In this case, it will be more a question of budget and health risks. It should be taken into account that IVF-Egg donation is usually tried after several previous attempts at conventional IVF.

Can a genetic disease be transmitted through egg donation?

IVF-Egg donation is particularly prescribed when there is a risk that the mother-to-be will pass on a genetic abnormality to her child. Egg donation prevents the transmission of genetic diseases to offspring. The donor is selected according to her age and her state of health. She has to go through genetic testing. The risk of transmission of a genetic disease is therefore minimal, if not zero.

The experiences of mothers through egg donation tell their children about the process but I have my doubts. Do experts recommend telling it to children?

The decision to tell it to children is very personal. However, this is a complex subject and in general, experts recommend that it be told.
