Dr. Koufomichail performs Egg Donation

The decision to use donated eggs will have a significant impact on the people who achieve a family through the donor program and on the children in that family. 

Egg donation refers to the use of eggs donated by another woman who acts as a ‘donor’ to assist an individual or couple who are the ‘recipient(s)’, in their attempt to become parents. In order to donate eggs, the donor must undertake treatment on an IVF cycle. The use of donor eggs is an option for women unable to produce their own eggs, or when it has become clear that her eggs are of a poor quality and are unlikely to lead to the birth of a child. In some circumstances, the donation might be sought because the woman carries a rare genetic disease.

Egg donation process:

  • The donor undergoes the same procedure, and is given the same drugs as in IVF.
  • If and when it is confirmed that a woman is suitable as a donor, the ovarian stimulation phase follows (it is medically controlled).
  • Ovulation is done with light anesthesia.
  • On the day of the scheduled egg retrieval from the donor, the partner of the recipient gives his sperm sample.
  • The eggs are then fertilized in the laboratory with partner’s sperm.
  • The next day we check how many eggs have been fertilized.
  • After 3-5 days, the embryo transfer takes place.
  • The remaining embryos are cryopreserved.
  • At the same time, drugs are given to facilitate the implantation of the embryo.
