Treatment’s success rates are well above the average reported by ESHRE for IVF clinics in Greece.
Newlife IVF runs a successful egg donation program.
All egg donor IVF cycles are fresh and each donor is prepared for one recipient. A minimum guaranteed number of eggs (around 8-10). Using fresh eggs maximizes chances of success.
Approximately, 80-90% of egg donation patients have surplus good quality embryos to freeze.
This means that if a cycle is not successful, a second attempt can be undertaken with the use of frozen embryos at a minimum cost and with a much shorter stay in Greece. Furthermore, freezing surplus embryos will mean that any subsequent frozen embryo transfers may result in a biological sibling.
Newlife undertake additional investigations for donors such as:
One initial online consultation is required.
Patient must then visit Greece and the clinic for approximately 10 days.
Once egg collection has occurred and ICSI performed, doctors leave the embryos to develop in the laboratory, while they check them at intervals to monitor which ones are growing normally.
Embryo transfer will occur on day 5 and they will also freeze any surplus good quality embryos at this time. Patients are then able to travel home and wait for the outcome.
It is the way to preserve a woman’s fertility. The use of frozen eggs can obviously take place many years after their cryopreservation, as the length of freezing does not seem to affect their quality.

Best age group to perform egg freezing: between 20-36 years of age.
Steps of the process:
