In Donor Egg In Vitro Fertilisation, also known as IVF with egg donation, the donor eggs are fertilised with the sperm in the laboratory and the embryo is then transferred to the patient’s uterus.
Donor Egg IVF is the treatment with the best success rates.
It is an optimal option for those patients whose eggs are not of sufficient quality to achieve an evolving pregnancy, either because of their age or other circumstances (menopause, early ovarian failure, genetic causes, cancer treatments, etc.)
Pregnancy rate per cycle refers to pregnancies achieved with embryos generated in the same oocyte retrieval or pick-up. This includes the transfer of fresh embryos and possible frozen embryos. In the case of Donor Egg IVF, our pregnancy rate is 91,5%.
These excellent results have been achieved by transferring a single embryo in 90% of the treatments. In this way, we have shown that the transfer of a single blastocyst (embryo on its fifth day of development) improves success rates.
The embryo transfer is carried out ‘fresh’, without freezing it. This requires a great deal of coordination and synchronisation between the donor and the future mother, but it also offers the best results. Even so, either by decision of the patient or by medical indication, we can also do the embryo transfer in deferred, freezing the embryos obtained to transfer them in a later cycle.
In Barcelona, and as a project of Institut Marquès, we have our sperm bank with more than 2,000 premium donors. They are anonymous donors, as the Spanish law 14/2006 of May 14 on assisted human reproduction techniques establishes that donation must be anonymous, voluntary, informed and unpaid.
As we have our own sperm bank, we know the donors and select only the best. They are young people who decide to donate to help other people to build a family and who must undergo exhaustive medical and psychological tests. We also have all the phenotypes to find the most suitable donor for each case. It is the doctor himself who will be in charge of choosing the best fitting sperm donor for you, taking into account your physical features and the hereditary traits of your personality. We look for the perfect “match”.
If you prefer to personally choose your donor (non-anonymous donor) or do your treatment with the sperm of a family member or friend (known donor) we can help you, we collaborate with the best clinics.
