Donors includes the following types:
- Donors unrelated to the recipients who do it for altruistic and/or monetary reasons. In the US they are anonymous donors or semi-anonymous donors recruited by egg donor agencies or IVF clinics. Such donors may also be non-anonymous donors, i.e., they may exchange identifying and contact information with the recipients. In most countries other than the US and UK, the law requires such donors to remain anonymous.
- Designated donors, e.g. a friend or relative brought by the patients to serve as a donor specifically to help them. In Sweden and France, couples who can bring such a donor still get another person as a donor, but instead get advanced on the waiting list for the procedure, and that donor rather becomes a “cross donor”. In other words, the couple brings a designated donor, she donates anonymously to another couple, and the couple that brought her receives eggs from another anonymous donor much more quickly than they would have if they had not been able to provide a designated donor.
- Patients taking part in shared oocyte programmes. Women who go through in vitro fertilization may be willing to donate unused eggs to such a program, where the egg recipients together help paying the cost of the In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) procedure. It is very cost-effective compared to other alternatives. The pregnancy rate with use of shared oocytes is similar to that with altruistic donors.
Egg donors are first recruited, screened, and give consent prior to participation in the IVF process. Once the egg donor is recruited, she undergoes IVF stimulation therapy, followed by the egg retrieval procedure. After retrieval, the ova are fertilized by the sperm of the male partner (or sperm donor) in the laboratory, and, after several days, the best resulting embryo(s) is/are placed in the uterus of the recipient, whose uterine lining has been appropriately prepared for embryo transfer beforehand. The recipient is usually, but not always, the person who requested the service and then will carry and deliver the pregnancy and keep the baby.
Being an egg donor leads to a very exciting and rewarding journey provide an opportunity to help infertile couples make dream come true of having own child. Many couples out there find it difficult to conceive by their own and need donated eggs to get pregnant. Egg donation is a wonderful program whereby an infertile woman uses occytes (eggs) from a donor to fulfill her desire of becoming a mother.
Becoming an egg donor is a serious commitment and results are gratifying. The generosity and compassion is appreciated for the infertile couples. However in order to become a fertility egg donor, there are certain criteria you need to fulfill to establish your suitability.
As all women are not eligible for donating her eggs, some criteria are fairly standard including donor age limits which should be less than 35 years, screening tests and consent (a legal document for the use of donated eggs in treatment). Prior to egg donation process, you will be required to undergo certain screwing tests such as blood tests, ultrasounds, pelvic exam and psychological screening etc.
The egg donation process involves (In Vitro Fertilization) the retrieval of occytes from the donor and will be combined with the sperm from the recipient couple or donor and kept for 3-5 days in laboratory to produce embryos. Once healthy embryos are produced, one or two are transferred to the recipient in order to achieve the pregnancy
The program recommended to:
- Women with ovarian failure
- Women unable to get pregnant with their own eggs or repeated IVF failure
- Women who have had repeated miscarriages
- Have chromosomal abnormalities
- Age more than 35 years or older women
