Egg and Embryo donation

About embryo donation

Embryo donation (it is also called embryo adoption, which means the same) is using donor embryos for IVF. There are different reasons, why women need to be treated with an embryo donation. Anyway, it is a highly successful way of getting pregnant and having your own baby. It can’t be implemented only in case of uterus absence or by severe medical reasons.

Before the IVF we accurately study your medical history and history of your partner. Many of our patients, who initially came for an embryo donation IVF, successfully delivered healthy children with egg donation IVF and partner’s sperm or with own eggs with PGS for 23 chromosomes.

The embryo donation IVF includes a 1-2-days visit to the Scanfert clinic, when we’ll give our advice on getting and staying pregnant, make laboratory tests and transfer the embryo.

Embryo Donation Program success

We have a huge experience in IVF with donor embryos, implemented by a professional and experienced team of doctors. At Scanfert with AVA-Peter transfer of one embryo results in 62% pregnancy rates. We make a detailed selection of potential egg and sperm donors. Moreover, our success in this field is due to the following conditions:

  • Avoiding using embryos, eggs or sperm of our patients not to pass possible fertility problems to the child;
  • Using high quality fresh eggs from our egg donors data base only;
  • Using sperm from our sperm donors base only;
  • Strict and demanding selection of egg and sperm donors in our donors data base;
  • Fertilization for creating donor embryos is implemented by mixing the eggs and the sperm, which makes the process natural and provides the best embryo quality;
  • High standards in the laboratory which provide only perfect quality embryos.

Embryo Donation Program Reduced Costs

90% of embryo recipients need not more than 3 tries of IVF with embryo donation for success.

To make the IVF with donor embryos more cost-efficient, we provide patients with 1 or 2 embryos from the embryo bank. In this case no costs for individual donation should be covered. One to one donation can be possible if you want to have more embryos from the same donors for future siblings to your child.

Many of our patients are scared that in case of unsuccessful IVF they will spend money in vain. But IVF with guarantee program gives patients opportunity to reduce this stress and to save their financial resources.

Indications for egg donation

Premature menopause. Women suffering from premature menopause unable to conceive a child due to run out supply of eggs. However, most women still can become pregnant and give birth to a child during the premature menopause because their uterus is still functioning well. At Scanfert IVF with egg donation is available for women up to 51.

Low quality and low quantity of eggs. Usually, the older a woman becomes, the less number of eggs in her body is. Moreover, as the years pass by, the eggs can lose their quality. This may cause problems in treating infertility, and getting pregnant in a normal manner becomes impossible. In this case, IVF with egg donation at Scanfert can be a solution.

Repeated IVF failures. Unfortunately, IVF success rate reduces when it comes to women of the older age. After 38 the number of failures of embryos implanting is caused by lowered eggs quality. By the age of 42 IVF success rate is only 5%. But at this age women still can get pregnant and deliver a child. So, one of the options for them is using egg donation.

Medical conditions. Egg donation is a suitable option for women who don’t have their own eggs in the ovaries because of some diseases or as a result of medical treatment (like chemotherapy).

Hereditary problems. Some women with hereditary problems have a high risk of passing their diseases on to their children. When a donor’s egg is used, the child will carry the genes of the donor and the genetic disease of his mother will be avoided. In this regard, desire to avoid child’s Down’s Syndrome can be met by using a donor egg as well, because the possibility of this disease increases with the age of the genetic mother. Our egg donors’ data base includes women under 32, 26 years old in average.
