What is Egg Donation?

In what cases is it indicated?

Semen from the partner

  • Older women.
  • Women with ovarian failure due to menopause, premature ovarian failure or ovarian surgery.
  • Women who cannot use their own oocytes, due to poor quality or because of hereditary diseases that cannot be detected by PGD techniques; women who have repeatedly failed to get pregnant through in vitro fertilisation.

  • Primary ovarian failure is when menstruation does not begin during puberty (gonadal dysgenesis – Turner syndrome, Swyer syndrome, pure gonadal dysgenesis – Savage syndrome or resistant ovary syndrome).
  • Premature ovarian failure is when a loss of ovarian function is experienced before the age of 40, with periods starting to become irregular and eventually stopping altogether. Some of the causes of this include:
    • Hereditary factors: carriers of Fragile X Syndrome, etc.
    • Enzyme alterations: galactosemia, 17a-hydroxylase deficiency. Gonadotropin secretion defect.
    • Autoimmune disorders: MEN, or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome, Addison’s syndrome, diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism, anti-ovarian antibodies, etc.
    • Infectious factors: parotiditis, rubella.
    • Environmental factors: smoking, etc.
    • Surgical castration: due to cysts or tumours on the ovaries.
    • Past treatment with chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
  • Repeated failure with IVF is when women do not respond to ovarian stimulation, or when they fail to achieve fertilisation on several occasions with ICSI, or when they experience repeated embryo implantation failure.


Types Of Egg Donors

  • Men who have no spermatozoa.
  • Men who are carriers of a genetic disease which cannot be studied in the embryos, or who are carriers of a sexually transmitted disease.
  • Chromosomal abnormalities in the semen.
  • Women who do not have a male partner.


RESULTS

In 26 years, the IVI Group has helped more than 160,000 dreams come true.

CARE

97% of our patients said they would recommend IVI. We work with you at every stage of the treatment, providing support and care.

TECHNOLOGY

IVI has a worldwide reputation for innovative research and has developed and patented pioneering techniques and technologies.

EXPERTISE

IVI is one of the largest fertility providers in the world, with over 70 clinics in 13 countries.

Egg Donors

You may require egg donation as part of your fertility treatment. This may be because of medical complications or the female partner’s maternal age. There are three ways to access this treatment at IVI:

 

  • Using a known donor

    A patient may choose to use an oocyte donated from a relative or another known person. These eggs would undergo medical screening as part of the process and counselling would be necessary.

  • Using a UK donor

    Patients can use a UK donor. Due to the current UK law, at the age of 16 the child (or parent on their behalf) can access the donor’s non-identifiable information. When the child reaches 18 they may contact the donor if they wish, but this doesn’t change the legal status of the donor.

  • Using a donor from IVI in Spain
    IVI have a network of clinics across Spain that for many years have been working with UK patients who require egg donation. Egg donation is anonymous in Spain. IVI in Spain has the largest frozen egg bank in the world. We therefore have access to egg donors with all characteristics, with no waiting list.

Procedure

The woman receiving the embryos must undergo treatment to prepare her endometrium prior to embryo transfer. The clinic counsellor will arrange to talk with you about what donating your eggs means to you and your family. It will be an opportunity for you to explore and consider the implications of egg donation.

Pharmacological treatment

Preparation of the semen

Fertilisation and transfer

The best moment for embryo transfer, as well as the number of embryos to be transferred, will be decided and explained by our doctors based on couple’s medical history, characteristics and number of embryos obtained, and  individual circumstances of the cycle.

Donation Legislation

Egg donors often want to know about the legal aspects of their ‘gift of life’. Under UK law egg donors have no legal rights or responsibilities for children born as a result of their generous donation.

Women who wish to receive donor eggs have counselling about the desirability of telling their child about their genetic origins, but there is no legal obligation to do so. Children who are born from your donation will be able to contact the donor when they reach 18 years of age if they have been informed. This is a decision for their parents, and none of the medical professionals involved could influence their decision.
