Embryo donation is a process in which a couple receives embryo’s from the ART Bank.
Embryo donation may be recommended to couples when:
This means donors and recipients do not know each other’s identities. With an anonymous donation, no contact can be made between donor and recipient, either now or in the future.
An Embryo Transfer during the Donor Embryo Program is similar to Embryo transfer of IVF Cycle.
Your doctor will transfer one or two embryos into your uterus through your cervix with a thin catheter.
To avoid the risk of a multiple pregnancy, usually no more than two embryos are transferred. It is recommended that embryo transfer from donated eggs or embryos takes the age of the recepient into account , so your doctor may recommend transferring only one embryo.
Donor embryos will come from donors where the sperm donor is under the age of 45, and the female is under the age of 35. As fertility decreases with age, these younger embryos tend to be more viable, and so success rates for donor embryos tend to be higher than traditional IVF.
A pregnancy resulting from embryo donation has the same risks, to the baby and the recipient, as any other pregnancy with the additional consideration of the age and medical conditions of the recipient.
The success rate are slightly higher than standard IVF treatment. This is because the eggs are always donated by fertile women aged under 35 years, and the sperm from men age 45 or under.
