Egg Donation Q&A

When you make embryos for the embryo adoption program – do you use the same donors multiple times? Or the same combination of donors multiple times?

Blastocysts for embryo adoption program pass very strict quality control, we freeze only the best ones. We do not use the same donors in the same combinations more than once for this program, but from one stimulation it can be several donor embryos frozen.

How does one determine that it is time to give up your own eggs and move on to egg donor?

It's a tricky question. First of all age — if you are 44 or more, live birth with your own eggs is unrealistic. If you are younger than 44 our doctors will analyze meticulously your previous history of the attempts and your current ovarian reserve. And give you an estimate for your chances with your own eggs. But it is completely normal to switch to donor eggs when this is your only realistic chance to have a baby and when you are feeling ready. Don't think of it as giving up - it's just a method to give you the long awaited result — a healthy baby.

I’m 47. I have longed for a baby of my own for quite some time. My boyfriend has two kids from an earlier relationship, he’s not sure he wants more kids but I want a baby of my own. I wonder if it would be possible to use my own eggs, I have regular menstruation but I’m worried that I might be too old.

Dear patient, at the age of 47 doing IVF with own eggs is unrealistic, unfortunately the live birth rate will be close to zero even if you have some ovarian reserve and regular periods. It is because of chromosomal errors in the eggs — at this age the majority of your eggs are unfortunately abnormal. But still you have some time to become pregnant and deliver a baby with donor eggs and maybe donor sperm — if your boyfriend is not willing to come aboard. Egg donation is not an easy step, I know. But it can be so rewarding!
