This procedure is one of the most used in fertility clinics worldwide and consists of the search for pregnancy through donated eggs.
Many women resort to this treatment because when they get older, especially after age 37, the quality and quantity of eggs diminish, making it difficult to achieve pregnancy. Additionally, many women use this treatment because of various diseases that affect their fertility. This alternative provides the possibility for these women to achieve pregnancy with the help of our specialists.
When a woman has lost her ovaries because of various illnesses or if they no longer have eggs, there is an alternative to achieve a pregnancy using donated eggs.
The procedure consists of extracting eggs from a compatible donor woman (who shares physical similarities) with the woman who requires the donation. These eggs are taken to the laboratory to put them in direct contact with the sperm of the woman’s partner. The eggs are fertilized to grow and multiply in the strictest laboratory conditions. After 2 to 3 days, the fertilized eggs (already embryos of 4 or 8 cells) are directly inserted in the woman’s uterus to start the implantation and for the expected pregnancy to occur.
Women who may opt for this treatment are those who:
- Women who lost their ovaries after surgery or for other reasons.
- A woman who carries a family illness that she wishes not to transmit to their children.
- Are close to menopause.
- Have had conception failures due to ovarian factors.
Allow the treatment of couples with reproductive problems or risk of transmission of a genetic defect.
Egg donation is one of the most successful assisted reproduction techniques, with pregnancy percentages between 50 and 60% per cycle.
