When Should I Consider an Egg Donor?
If you’re facing infertility, you may be considering various fertility treatments to help you conceive. However, in some cases, using your own eggs may not be a viable option. In these cases, using an egg donor can provide an alternative option. Here are some points to consider when deciding if you should go for an egg donor.
Diminished Ovarian Reserve
Diminished ovarian reserve (DOR) is a condition in which a woman’s ovaries have fewer eggs than usual or the eggs are of lower quality. This can make it more difficult to achieve a successful pregnancy using the woman’s own eggs. In this case, using an egg donor can increase the chances of a successful pregnancy.
Premature Ovarian Failure
Premature ovarian failure (POF) is a condition in which a woman’s ovaries stop functioning before the age of 40. This can result in infertility and premature menopause. Using an egg donor can provide an alternative option for women with POF who want to have a child.
As a woman ages, her fertility naturally declines. This can make it more difficult to achieve a successful pregnancy using her own eggs. Egg donation is the ideal treatment for age related infertility and thousands of families around the world grow yearly thanks to this treatment.
Unsuccessful Fertility Treatments
If you’ve tried various fertility treatments without success, using an egg donor can be a way to increase the chances of a successful pregnancy. The donated eggs can be fertilised with sperm in a laboratory and transferred to the woman’s uterus.
ReproMed offers two distinct Egg Donation programmes: one where the embryo transfer takes place at our Irish clinics, and another where patients must travel to the Czech Republic for the transfer.
These programmes are done in collaboration with clinics that are part of our European Group, and we maintain a close relationship with them, overseen by a shared Group Medical Director. If you want to learn more about either programme, please get in touch with us.
Alternatively, you can book a consultation with our Fertility Consultants to discuss these options.
