Primary Reasons to Seek a Reliable Egg Donation Center to Become Pregnant

The most common reason that single women and couples seek an egg donation program to achieve pregnancy is because of poor egg quality caused primarily by advanced age – a woman’s egg value decreases appreciatively after the age of 35 – significantly post-39 years of age. Other ordinary reasons that egg donation programs are used to achieve pregnancy are:

  • Poor quality eggs or irregular egg production
  • No ovaries with an intact uterus
  • Premature ovarian failure
  • Prevention of a genetic condition from being passed on to the child
  • Menopause
  • Chemotherapy history
  • Genetic disease history
  • Multiple IVF failures

The egg donations available to infertile individuals and couples through Kofinas Fertility Institute have been surgically retrieved from healthy young women between 21 to 30 years of age who are in their reproductive prime – all having granted their informed consent. These egg donors undergo extensive psychological, medical, and genetic screening which is inclusive of a thorough medical history and evaluation.

Egg Donation Process – Removal and Transfer 

After being accepted as an egg donor by Kofinas Fertility Institute, the egg donor program facilitates the transfer of the donor’s eggs to the intended parent as follows:

  • The egg donor undergoes hormone injection treatments to stimulate her ovulation in order to produce five or more eggs – normally, a woman naturally releases one egg per month.
  • When the donor’s eggs have developed into a prime state for fertilization, a doctor then surgically removes them from the donor’s ovaries.
  • After the eggs have been removed from the donor, they are expertly fertilized within a state of the art laboratory using the intended parent’s sperm or other selected donated sperm.
  • The fertilized eggs then become embryos and are closely monitored until they have developed into an optimum growth stage – giving the embryos the most successful opportunity to attach to the intended mother’s uterine lining – for insertion into the recipient’s cervix.
  • When the embryos have developed into an optimum state, a doctor will insert the embryos into the intended mother’s uterus and, hopefully, an embryo will successfully attach to the uterine lining and develop into a healthy baby.
