IVF using Donor Egg

IVF using Donor Egg

IVF treatment with donor eggs gives women unable to conceive the chance to have a family.

IVF treatment with donor eggs allows women the chance to have a family. An option for people or couples who are unable to conceive with their own eggs is IVF using donor eggs. It entails the use of eggs provided by a different woman, also referred to as an egg donor, to produce embryos that are then placed into the uterus of the recipient.

We offer a wide choice of fresh donor eggs.

When are Donor Eggs recommended?

  • Age-related infertility.
  • Advanced maternal age.
  • Premature menopause.
  • Premature ovarian failure.
  • Poor egg quality.
  • Infertility is caused by a medical treatment such as chemotherapy.
  • A high risk of passing on a genetic or hereditary condition.

About our Egg Donation Program:

We differentiate between two types of donors:

  • A personal donor; is a family member or a good friend.
  • A clinic donor; is someone recruited by the clinic.

All clinic donors complete a non-identifying information (Non-ID) questionnaire that covers ethnicity, eye color, height, education, personality, the reason for donating, and much more. Our clinic screens donors for the most common diseases that can be sexually transmitted. Some genetics tests are done to screen for inherited conditions, such as Cystic Fibrosis. A karyotype genetic test is also done. Screening aims to reduce risks to the child and mother.

​Donor eggs are used fresh to lower the potential damage from freezing and thawing. Using Fresh donor eggs will also increase the fertilization rate. As the chance of pregnancy falls with a woman’s age and the possibility of fetal abnormality increases, we have set an age range of 20-26 for clinic-recruited egg donors.

The process of starting Egg donation treatment in Cyprus:

Here is a summary of the IVF procedure using donated eggs:

1. Examination and screening: A rigorous examination and screening procedure is carried out on both the recipient and the egg donor. To evaluate the status of her uterus and overall reproductive health, the receiver may undertake a number of tests. Comprehensive medical and psychological examinations are performed on the egg donor, including examinations for infectious diseases, genetic conditions, and hormone levels.

2. Cycle Synchronization: Hormonal drugs are used to synchronize the menstrual cycles of the recipient and the egg donor. This entails inhibiting the recipient’s regular cycle, prepping her uterus for embryo transfer, and inducing multiple egg production in the egg donor’s ovaries.

3. Ovarian Stimulation and Egg Recovery: The egg donor is given fertility drugs to help the development of several eggs inside her ovaries. The donor’s development is followed at various stages via hormonal blood tests and ultrasound imaging. The egg retrieval procedure is carried out after the eggs are judged ripe for removal. An ultrasonic imaging-guided, tiny needle is used to harvest the eggs.

4. Fertilization: In a lab setting, the recovered eggs are next fertilized with sperm from either the intended father or a sperm donor. Two techniques can be used to do this: intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), in which a single sperm is injected directly into each egg, and conventional IVF, in which the eggs and sperm are incubated simultaneously. At our clinic, we prefer to use ICSI for all of the treatments.

5. Embryo Development: To allow the embryos to develop, they are cultivated in a lab for a few days after conception. The embryologists keep a close eye on the embryos’ growth and evaluate their quality.

6. Embryo Transfer: One or more embryos are transferred into the recipient’s uterus once they have reached the right developmental stage, usually 3-5 days following fertilization. Typically, an ultra-thin catheter is introduced into the cervix and used to execute this treatment under ultrasound guidance. Cryopreserved (frozen) embryos that are still viable can be stored for later use.

7. Test for Pregnancy and Follow-Up: A pregnancy test is performed about two weeks following the embryo transfer to see if the procedure was effective. The recipient will continue to get hormonal assistance to help keep the pregnancy going if the test is positive. To track the development of the pregnancy, routine check-ups and ultrasounds are planned.

The needed amount to stay in Cyprus for IVF Treatment:

The first option; is 20 days: The patient can come for the entire treatment process and stay in Cyprus. The patient must come to Cyprus on the first or second day of the menstruation cycle. The patient will have all the medications and ultrasound scan monitors at the clinic. 

The second option; is seven days: The patient will be able to start the treatment in their home country. And come to Cyprus on the donor egg retrieval day to begin the process of fertilization. The patient will have a few ultrasound scan monitors in their home country, and we will help them. As for the medications, we work with many online pharmacies, and we will help the patients to order the drugs or send them by post from Cyprus.
