- Oocytes received from a donor subject to an ovarian stimulation procedure simultaneos to the endometrial preparation of the recipient (fresh)
- Frozen oocytes from a donor.
Egg donation: step by step
- 1 - Endometrial preparation
- 2 - Endometrial monitoring
- 3 - Donation
- 4 - Embryo transfer
- 5 - Pregnancy test
The receptor will undertake hormonal treatment in order to prepare her endometrium for embryo reception.
This treatment is tailored to each patient. It generally starts with a pituitary inhibition phase (induced by injectable medication) and the administration of oral oestrogen that will allow the endometrium to grow. Pituitary inhibition is not always required.
After approximately 10 to 14 days of endometrial preparation, an ultrasound scan will be performed in order to check its thickness is appropriate for embryo reception.
Once the endometrium is ready, the receptor should wait for her donor to finish the ovarian stimulation process or wait for embryo transfer to be scheduled when using vitrified donor eggs.
The day after this procedure the number of fertilized oocytes or pre-embryos is determined. These will be kept in the laboratory for a period of 2-6 days after which we will proceed to embryo transfer.
A pregnancy blood test is performed 12 days after the embryo transfer. An ultrasound scan is scheduled 2 weeks after a positive result to confirm a pregnancy is in progress.
- Primary ovarian failure or secondary due to surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
- Gamete genetic alterations.
- Serious hereditary and maternal genetic diseases.
- Repeated failure of assisted reproduction techniques due to insufficient response to ovarian stimulation.
- Repeated failure of embryo implantation.
The probability of pregnancy per embryo transfer cycle exceeds 50%. The overall probability of pregnancy after four oocyte donation cycles can reach 90%.
Furthermore, in a high number of cycles where donated oocytes are used, it is possible to vitrify an adequate number of them, with a subsequent higher chance of achieving a pregnancy.
Chances of pregnancy resulting from received oocytes depend primarily on the number and quality of embryos transferred. However, it must be considered that not all donors who initiate treatment achieve the adequate follicular development to undergo puncture, and not all recipients who undergo treatment achieve adequate endometrial preparation, which also affects the likelihood of gestation.
Egg Donation cost
*Add on 435€ when sperm donor is required.
- Fixed Price: This is a fixed priced treatment that includes the services detailed on the cost breakdown. Supplementary tests may be required according to medical criteria, however, these will be notified in advance.
- Validity: The validity of this estimate is 6 months from the date of your first consultation.
- Medication: Medication costs are not included. These will be assumed by the patient.
- Embryo devitrification: when an embryo transfer fails, an additional cost of 1.860 € will apply to subsecuent attempts.
- Cancellation by the patient: In case of cancellation of the treatment, the patient must pay the costs incurred until that point.
- After 2 years of embryo cryopreservation: It will be your decision to either chose from one the authorised applications regarding embryo donation/destruction or the payment of a 435€ fee per year of conservation for future use.
- Sperm preservation: this has a cost of 250€, and 230€ per year of conservation.
- A minimum of 8 mature donor oocytes is guaranteed.
- We guarantee at least 2 blastocyst-stage embryos. In the event of this not happening or when there is only one embryo and the patient does not achieve a pregnancy or has a miscarriage, the patient will only have to pay for the embryo transfer in a subsequent treatment; the remaining costs will be covered by the clinic (this warranty does not apply in case of male factor infertility).
