Choosing the Most Appropriate Egg Donor

Egg (oocyte) donation is the most preferred technique in fertility centers. The reasons behind it are late maternal age (because of career etc.) or unknown medical reasons. Careful evaluation of egg donors is crucial to achieving a successful outcome. Suitable donor for the couple is determined after a stringent series of tests are applied to the donor by our multidisciplinary expert staff.

Tests include:

  • Medical, psychological and gynecological examinations
  • Blood and serological tests against infectious diseases
  • Examining the genetic background to eliminate the most common inherited diseases

The ovarian stimulation process is done so that the donor obtains a sufficient number of eggs. The eggs obtained are fertilized with the sperm sample given by the male partner of the couple and when the embryos reach the desired level, they are placed in the uterus of the female.
