Donor Eggs

Orion IVF Pune

Best Egg Donation Center in Pune

Egg donation is a procedure in which a fertile woman donates eggs, or oocytes, to another woman to assist her in conceiving. It is also known as a form of assisted reproductive technology (ART).

Since its inception, our donor egg service has had a high rate of success. This allows donor egg recipients the ability to bear a baby and feel the joys and parental connection that comes with it. Donor eggs provide the option of childbearing to women who do not have ovaries or who have ovarian failure and do not yield fertilizable eggs. This is an excellent way to assist a couple in realizing their goal of being parents. Donor eggs are often used as a last resort option by patients. Before reaching a definitive decision, it is important to thoroughly understand the procedure, since the donor egg process will result in a stable baby and is also far less costly than repeated attempts of unsuccessful procedures. When patients discuss procedures using donor eggs, they have several questions and worries. When a woman or a couple decides to use donor eggs, their odds of becoming pregnant are normally better than for some other method of treatment. More families would be able to feel the excitement of welcoming a baby to their family as a result of this. Orion IVF strives to carry out egg donation with the full protection and consent of the couple involved.

Donor gametes are generally received from a healthy and anonymous donor. Selection of a suitable donor and screening of the donor is required for the successful outcome of the procedure.


The egg donation procedure is divided into two stages. Donors are given a combination of hormonal drugs in the first step, ovarian hyperstimulation, which causes the ovaries to release several mature eggs in one menstrual cycle. During the second stage, egg extraction, mature eggs are extracted from the donor using a surgical technique known as transvaginal ultrasound aspiration.

Ovarian Hyperstimulation:

During the ovarian hyperstimulation process of donation, women typically undergo three types of medications. Some donors can take birth control pills before starting the three-drug regimen to manage their menstrual cycles.

The first phase of the hormonal treatment regimen involves the use of a family of medications known as gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist analogs. These medications are used to inhibit the pituitary gland’s production of luteinizing hormone (LH), which usually triggers eggs to develop within the body. Other medications will then be used by doctors to control the timing of egg maturation and ovulation.

After the first class of medications has suppressed hormone levels, donors initiate regular injections of either follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) or human menopausal gonadotropin (hMG). This would encourage the development of multiple egg follicles, enabling the doctor to extract multiple mature eggs at the same time.

When tests show that the eggs have matured, ovulation is induced with a single injection of human chorionic gonadotropin. This injection is followed by egg extraction 34-36 hours later.

Egg Retrieval

Transvaginal ultrasound aspiration, a surgical technique conducted under conscious sedation, is used to extract eggs from the donor. A physician directs a suctioning needle through each ovary and separates mature oocytes from the follicles using a tube connected to an ultrasound probe. Donors usually stay in the clinic for 4-6 hours after egg collection and then return home to recover. To prevent infection, an antibiotic such as oral doxycycline may be administered, and donors will have a follow-up test and ultrasound one week after the extraction.

Selecting The Egg Donor

Who Should Consider?

When a woman or couple visits a fertility clinic — IVF with egg donation is not normally the first treatment option, since patients choose to aim for conception using their gametes first.

Nonetheless, the following are the cases in which egg donation is expressly indicated:

  • Patients who have no ovarian activity due to primary ovarian failure, premature ovarian failure, ovarian absence, or menopause.
  • Patients that have an ovarian function but are unable to use their eggs due to transmissible genetic defects frequent deficiencies in prior IVF cycles, or being above the age of 40.

Donor’s Profile

Donating eggs is a highly controlled procedure. To be eligible for egg donation, the applicant must fulfill several legal, medical, and ethical criteria. A screening procedure will be carried out to determine the woman’s suitability as a donor, during which both her physical and psychological conditions will be examined.

To be considered for the egg donation scheme, the prospective donor must be between the ages of 18 and 35, in good mental and physical health, and not a source of genetic, hereditary, or infectious disorders that may be passed on to the offspring.

Embryo Transfer

Once the donor’s eggs are collected, the spouse or sperm donor must provide a sperm sample on the day of the ovum pick-up so that the eggs can be inseminated for the development of human embryos. The embryos are cultured before they enter the appropriate stage for transplant, which is normally on day 3. At that point, recipients must return to the clinic for transfer to the uterus. Embryo transfer is a quick, painless process that leaves only the waiting for embryo implantation. In other words, a woman anticipates pregnancy after an embryo transfer.

Fetal Screening And Pregnancy Testing

A quantitative beta-hCG blood test will tell a woman whether she is pregnant within 10 days. Recipients should wait at least 14 days after fertilization to correct the results of this procedure. If the test results are positive, the first ultrasound scan will be scheduled. This is the time when you will be able to hear the fetal heartbeat and determine if the pregnancy is a singleton or multiple pregnancies.

Success Rates

Donor eggs are of the highest quality and they were donated by young, fertile women and who do not have any fertility issues. To be admitted as donors, they must pass a series of medical examinations to guarantee their overall fitness. With this in mind, it stands to reason that IVF cycles using donor eggs usually have higher success rates than cycles using the patient’s own eggs.

Once a pregnancy is completed by egg donation, the conception progresses similarly to birth with one’s own eggs. The patient may exhibit the same symptoms, and the maternity follow-up will be the same as well. Orion IVF provides innovative laboratory tests and cutting-edge infertility care to planned parents.
