Infertility is defined as an inability in getting pregnant after one year of unprotected sex. About 8 to 12 percent of couples experience some kind of fertility problem around the world. Nowadays, thanks to modern fertility treatments, having a child does not seem so far-fetched. One of these treatments is egg donation which brings hope to the lives of so many couples and fulfills their wish of parenthood. The egg donation process is similar to IVF with the difference that eggs are collected from an egg donor, not from the intended mother. In this article, we are going to talk about the egg donation cost in different parts of the world and guide you to the cheapest country for this treatment. So let’s get into it!

The egg donation cost can vary based on many variables. Sometimes multiple rounds of Donor Egg IVF are needed which can increase the expenses. Fresh donated eggs usually cost about twice the price of frozen donated eggs. It can be said that the cost of fresh donated eggs in the USA is approximately between $35,000 and $65,000. This amount includes the cost of agency and fertility clinic fees, egg donor’s compensation, medical expenses, egg retrieval procedure and IVF procedure, legal fees, and travel expenses.
It is important to know that worldwide only less than %1 of people used insurance for their Donor Egg IVF process, so it is very rare to have insurance coverage for this cycle. But the IVF cycle may be covered by your insurance so you can check it with your insurance company in advance. In general, the egg donation cost can vary widely among different countries or clinics. It is important to do research before deciding to start.
Although egg donation is costly, the result is worth all the money because it gives hope to women who deal with fertility challenges related to their eggs. This process enables women not having viable eggs to experience pregnancy which may feel like a dream coming true. They give birth to the child whom they carried in their wombs for months and is genetically related to their partner.
Iran is one of the best destinations for egg donation in the world by using the best physicians, high-quality services, and well-equipped facilities and it is the cheapest country for egg donation. If you are from the middle eastern countries, especially Arab ones, you can find Iranian donors very similar to your own people. In addition, by doing this process in Iran, you can take advantage of other fertility techniques including surrogacy, gender selection, genetic test, ICSI, thawing, and more. If you are considering doing the process, you can read about IVF and Egg Donation to get more information about the subject.

Where can we buy donated eggs at a lower cost?

Donated eggs can be purchased from three different sources.
The first source is “Fertility clinics” where there are both fresh and frozen donated eggs for sale. If you want to use a known donor, you also need to go to a clinic and do the donation and IVF process there. “Donor egg banks” sell just frozen eggs and send them to fertility clinics to be used by applicants, and the last source is “donor egg agencies” where there are fresh donated eggs from a group of donors by coordination of the agency. Frozen eggs have usually a lower cost compared to fresh eggs; however, the success rate may not be lower.

Egg Donation cost in Iran

Iran is the top Islamic country where egg donation is legally practiced in fertility centers. Each year, many couples especially Muslims come to Iran to have a baby using donor eggs. Numerous fertility centers and clinics are offering egg donation treatment to married couples who cannot conceive due to different problems leading to a lack of healthy eggs.

The egg donation cost in Iran is around $5,500 to $7,000 which is very affordable compared to the other countries. This cost includes the IVF process, egg donor’s compensation, medication, doctor visits, and embryo transfer. The egg donation cost in Iran is at the minimum while the quality of treatment is at highest and can be compared to the quality of the same service in American and European countries.

Accurate screening of donors is what made Iran’s fertility centers high-quality places for egg donation. Therefore, the egg donation success rate in Iran is the same as the best fertility centers in the world. Iranian fertility specialists are experienced and skilled in infertility treatment and will guide you in the best possible direction. The fertility clinics and IVF centers are all equipped with the latest types of assisted reproductive technologies.

IVF along with egg donation gives couples this opportunity to get pregnant and have a child who, unlike adoption, is biologically related to the father and will grow up in the woman’s womb. Therefore, you will have a baby who is genetically the male partner’s child and was nurtured in the female partner’s womb.

Does Egg Donation Cost Worth it?

Egg donation can offer hope to a couple who have a missing link in their lives and make their families grow and hope worth the high egg donation cost. Egg donation is a type of fertility treatment in which a healthy qualified woman donates her eggs to another woman in order to get inseminated and have a child. Donor’s eggs are fertilized in a laboratory environment with sperms of the intended father or a donor to make the embryo. The resulting embryo then is transferred into the recipient’s uterus to hopefully grow into a healthy pregnancy.

Before donation, egg donors will go through some blood tests including HIV, hepatitis, syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, and HTLV which are all needed to screen candidates. They will be asked about hereditary diseases that run in their families and their physical and mental health will be checked.

In the IVF egg donation process, donors will receive hormones to stimulate ovaries and mature multiple eggs instead of only one egg which is usual in a normal cycle. Then the eggs are retrieved and will be donated to an infertile couple for insemination with the male partner’s sperm and forming embryos. Then the embryo will be transferred to the intended mother’s uterus or in some cases to a surrogate mother for growing.

There are so many reasons which prevent a woman from having a fertile egg on her own. Having a genetic disorder, absence of ovaries, low-quality eggs, early menopause, and old age can be mentioned as some of the reasons. Egg donors by providing their healthy eggs can help these women to make their dream of having children come true.

It should be added that egg donation is a highly regulated and supported fertility treatment. FDA treats eggs just like any other organ and it seems to be an easy process according to the laws of most countries.

Does Egg Donation Success Rate Worth the Cost?

The use of donated eggs is getting more common, especially among women over 40. The High success rate of this technique is another reason for the egg donation popularity. The chances of a donated egg making a properly developed embryo is about %80, the chance of implanting the embryo in a uterus is between %75- %85 and the pregnancy success rate is about %55 – %65.

Of course, there are some factors that can affect the success rate. For instance, different genetics or physical and chemical factors can affect the quality of eggs. Numerous environmental factors can also have an impact on the success rate including the quality of the sperm, the health of the recipient, her nutrition, stress level, and also qualification and expertise of the IVF treatment clinic. In overall, egg donation gives you a high chance of developing a high-quality embryo which is worth the cost of it.
