Quite good results are usually noted on patients who were subjected to egg donation treatment. On average, the pregnancy rate in a first IVF cycle is about 60% and it can even reach 90% in the following attempts. These results are due to the usage of high quality oocytes that imply higher chances to produce good embryos which can be then implanted in order to achieve the pregnancy and the birth of a healthy baby.
All in all, Egg donation provides higher pregnancy rates and other advantages for the patient. It involves lower risk of natural miscarriage and chromosomal anomalies. On the other hand, it should be also pointed out that this treatment does not entail associated risks. It is absolutely painless and non-invasive procedure. Egg donation treatment does not include being subjected to hormonal stimulation and anesthesia.
What is the reason of good results in Egg donation treatment?
The main cause of high pregnancy percentage is because quality eggs are used. Donors are subjected to rigorous medical screenings through several meetings, tests and clinical analysis which are required by law to certify their fertility, their physical and mental health. It is compulsorily meeting all the necessary requirements to become a donor. The medical examination includes:
- Routine blood tests, liver, kidney and coagulation functions
- Serology study, Smear tests and urine genital culture to rule-out sexually transmitted diseases
- Ultrasound scan
- Genetic study which includes Karyotype, cystic fibrosis and X fragil in order to rule-out any of the most common inherited disease
- Personal interview with specialized psychologists
Another important element to take into account is the blood group type. In fact, it is necessary finding a match between the donors’ and the birth mothers and fathers. The phenotypic similarity between the recipient and the patient is also taken into consideration.
