This procedure, one of the most used in fertility clinics around the world, is the search for pregnancy through donor eggs.
Many women resort to this treatment because over time, and especially after the age of 37 years, the quality and quantity of eggs diminishes quickly which makes 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 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 female recipient who requires the donation. These eggs are taken to the laboratory to put them in direct contact with the sperm of the recipient woman’s partner. In the strictest laboratory conditions, the eggs are fertilized and begin to grow and multiply. After 2 to 3 days, the fertilized eggs (already embryos of 4 or 8 cells) are directly inserted in the recipient woman’s uterus so that they implant and the expected pregnancy occurs.
