Egg donation is the process by which a woman donates eggs to enable another woman to conceive as part of an assisted reproduction treatment.

Surya Fertility Centre gives clients the donor egg alternative as part of fertility treatment for married couples intrigued in conceiving a child with donor eggs.

Surya Fertility Centre also sticks to the ICMR guidelines for donor verification.

When is Egg Donation used?

  • Premature ovarian failure
  • Repeated IVF failures
  • Genetic issue
  • Poor oocyte quality
  • Absent ovaries due to surgery treatment

The treatment itself is much the same as for standard IVF, except that the eggs are sourced from an anonymous donor or egg bank.

What is the success rate for Egg Donation?

While the pregnancy success rates obtained in IVF cycles using the woman’s own eggs stand at 35-43%, the rates of donor-egg IVF cycles lie in the range 55-63% approximately.

What are the risks associated with being an Egg Donor?

Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS)

Some women respond very sensitively to fertility drugs and produce many follicles. This causes the ovaries to enlarge and hormone levels to rise.

Pelvic infection

Pelvic infection can, very occasionally, occur following an egg collection.

Other complications

There is a very small risk that the needle used for egg collection can puncture the bladder, bowel or blood vessels.

At, Surya Fertility Centre, the success rate of oocyte donation program is 65-80%. Oocyte donation is planned in such a way that the patients will have minimum 3 frozen embryo transfer in order to maximize the chances of conception.
