Egg donation

Krishna IVF Clinic is a multilingual, state-of-the-art IVF Lab and Fertility Clinic that offers personalised care with latest technology needed to manage infertility & reproductive disorders.

Egg donation is  for women who are unable to conceive using their own eggs, where the donor and the recipient are known to each other.  In most cases our patients come to see us with a family member or friend who is willing to donate her eggs. 
You may be considering using donated eggs if you are unable to use your own eggs, for example:
  •  you are going through premature menopause
  •  there is a risk of passing on genetic disease
  •  you have had IVF treatment but repeated cycles have indicated poor egg quality
  • you ovaries are effected or involved due to cancer chemotherapy
The success rate using donor egg treatment is directly related to the age of the donor, and the number and quality of donated eggs. 
Donors should be aged between 23 and 33, with no medical or genetic conditions. Donor  should be prepared to discuss their medical history, and provide details about your lifestyle and physical descriptions with one of our fertility specialists .Before proceeding with donation, donor will be  screened and ultrasound examination will be done . 
The ivf process is as following for  a donor cycle : The ivf process is a  synchronized for the recipient and donor cycles. This allows the eggs to be collected from the donor and transferred to the recipient at the best possible time. 
The  fertility specialist will monitor the donor as she undergoes vaginal ultrasounds and blood tests to determine when to collect the eggs. 
At the time of egg collection, the sperm is collected and the eggs are fertilised in the laboratory. Three to five days after the egg collection, one of the resulting embryos is transferred into the recipient and any other viable embryos are frozen, or all are frozen, for potential future transfer. After two weeks, a pregnancy test is done .
Embryo Donation : In IVF , some patients may produce more embryos (fertilized eggs) than they need. The extra embryos may be cryopreserved (frozen) so that they can be transferred later. However, sometimes these embryos may not be used. These patients have the option to have their embryos discarded, donated to research or donated to another woman to achieve pregnancy. For some couples, donated embryos may give them a better chance of having a baby than using donor sperm or eggs.
