Egg donation is one way to help infertile women or couples to start a family.
For many couples, being infertile no longer means having to go through life without children. Modern science and continued research in this direction has helped millions of couples all over the world become parents to a healthy child. Even issues that were once thought to make it impossible to conceive a child can now be overcome. One such female fertility problem is having a lack of eggs available for fertilisation.
What is Egg Donation
So what is a woman to do if her eggs have been found to be of poor quality or low quantity? Egg donation is the process by which a woman provides one or several (usually 10-15) eggs (ova, oocytes) for purposes of assisted reproduction or biomedical research. For assisted reproduction purposes, egg donation involves the process of in vitro fertilization as the eggs are fertilized in the laboratory. After the eggs have been obtained, the role of the egg donor is complete. Using an egg donor can significantly increase your chances of pregnancy. Compared to your own eggs, using donor eggs are typically a better option when you do not have a very good ovarian reserve.
Ovarian reserve is the quantity and quality of eggs present in a woman’s body and this number differs for from every woman. In some cases, in spite of a high number of follicles, a woman may not have her eggs mature due to issues like premature ovarian failure. Other women may have eggs that are incapable of being fertilised or implanting on the uterine wall due to structural defects.
On the whole, donor eggs may be a better option when:
- Premature ovarian failure due to genetic or auto-immune disorders has been diagnosed or has occurred due to radiation therapy or artificial removal of the ovaries
- A woman is over 40 and is going through or has already gone through menopause
- There has been no response to fertility drugs
- There is a high level of FSH in the blood (FSH is a hormone that stimulates follicles to mature into eggs. If its level is too high in the blood, it signifies fewer eggs present in the body.)
- A woman cannot conceive in spite of repeated IVF cycles
- There is a risk of transferring genetic disease, like haemophilia, to the child from the mother
