It refers to the use of eggs donated by another woman who acts as a “donor” to assist an individual or a couple, in their attempt to become parents.
In order to donate eggs, the donor must undertake an IVF cycle.
The use of donor eggs is an option for women:
Egg freezing is a method of storing a woman’s unfertilized eggs to allow her to try to conceive later when natural conception would be unlikely.
It can be seen as a way of preserving the possibility of fertility for women who are unable to get pregnant right away or whose fertility is at risk for medical reasons such as cancer treatment.
It is recommended that women freeze their eggs at the age of 20 or until the age of 35.
There is no age limit, however – it all depends on the woman’s body and whether the eggs can still be retrieved from her ovaries.
Natural cycle IVF is a treatment similar to traditional IVF, but without the use of drugs to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs.
The cycle can only produce up to 1 mature egg at a time. Patients are monitored with ultrasounds and blood tests to monitor the development of the individual ovarian follicle so that it is not released (ovulated) from the body before it can be collected.
For whom is suitable:
Success rates of this type of IVF do not differ from the ones of conventional IVF.

Sometimes with the Transvaginal PRP doctors don’t have the same results in all our patients and seems that PRP revolution does not manage to reach the ovarian stroma because some women have atrophic ovaries and are in premature menopause, and others have small ovaries or endometriosis.
For this reason Dr. Grigorakis suggest the Laparoscopic PRP.
With this method he sees from the camera inside to the uterus and injects the PRP revolution into the ovarian issue targeting follicle growth.
Laparoscopy PRP, being a surgical procedure, involves a small incision, requires general anesthesia and longer operating and is very safe process without any risk or side effects for women.
Indications for ovarian activation:
The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) procedure involves drawing blood from patients with a special syringe, which is then left to be centrifuged at the appropriate number of revolutions over a period of time to separate plasma-rich growth factors.
The whole blood will be processed using the separation system.
At the end of this procedure, doctor gets the active plasma containing a large amount of growth factors, including PDGF, TGF-β, VEGF, EGF, and many others.
This method had and has good results.
