What is Egg Donation?

Egg donation process can offer hope to a couple who have a missing link in their lives and make their families grow. 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.

Why do people use Egg Donors?

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 ages 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 organs and it seems to be an easy process according the laws of most countries.

Egg Donation Success Rate

The use of donated eggs is getting more common especially among women over 40. High success rate of this technique is another reason of egg donation popularity. The chances of a donated egg make 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 which 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 quality of the sperm, health of the recipient, her nutrition, stress level, and also qualification and expert of the IVF treatment clinic.

Where can we buy donated eggs?

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.

How much does Egg Donation cost?

The cost of donated eggs 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 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 the 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 costs can vary widely among different countries or clinics. It is important to do a research before deciding to start.

Although egg donation is costly, the result 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 best physicians, high quality services and well-equipped facilities. If you are considering dsoing the process, you can read about IVF and Egg Donation to get more information about the subject.

 Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is one of the professional techniques before making any attempts toward pregnancy to make sure the baby will not possess any genetic defects. It is recommended to undergo PGD before pregnancy. This technique is also well-accomplished in Iran by the experienced and qualified Iranian experts.
