IVF with egg donation in France

In which case you can apply for IVF with egg donation?

IVF with egg donation, also known as Donor Egg IVF, is a fertility treatment option primarily recommended in specific medical cases where a woman's own eggs are not suitable for conception. Here are some common medical scenarios in which IVF with egg donation might be considered:

  • Premature Ovarian Failure (POF): When a woman experiences premature ovarian failure, her ovaries cease to function before the age of 40. In such cases, using her own eggs for IVF may not be possible, and donor eggs become a viable option.
  • Diminished Ovarian Reserve: Some women have a reduced number of viable eggs due to age, genetics, or medical conditions. In cases of severely diminished ovarian reserve, using donor eggs can significantly improve the chances of a successful pregnancy.
  • Genetic Disorders: If a woman carries a genetic disorder that she doesn't want to pass on to her child, she may choose to use donor eggs to avoid transmitting the genetic condition to her offspring.
  • Recurrent IVF Failures: After multiple failed IVF attempts using the woman's own eggs, a fertility specialist might recommend donor eggs, as the quality or quantity of the patient's eggs may be a contributing factor to the unsuccessful pregnancies.
  • Poor Egg Quality: Some women have eggs with poor quality, which can lead to miscarriages or failed implantation. Donor eggs from a healthy, younger donor can increase the chances of a successful pregnancy.
  • Advanced Maternal Age: As women age, the likelihood of chromosomal abnormalities in their eggs increases. Donor eggs from a younger, healthier donor can reduce the risk of genetic issues and improve the chances of a successful pregnancy, particularly for women over 40.
  • Surgical Removal of Ovaries: Women who have had their ovaries removed due to medical conditions, such as ovarian cancer, may require donor eggs to conceive.
  • Unexplained Infertility: In cases where the cause of infertility is not identified through standard diagnostic tests, or when all other treatments have failed, IVF with donor eggs may be considered as a last resort.

It's important to note that IVF with egg donation can be an emotionally and ethically complex decision for individuals or couples. The choice to use donor eggs should be made after careful consideration, and it's recommended to consult with a fertility specialist who can provide personalized guidance based on your specific medical history and needs.

If you are considering IVF with egg donation, it's essential to have open and honest discussions with your healthcare provider, a reproductive endocrinologist, or a fertility counselor to fully understand the implications and the process involved.

How does our clinic choose a donor for IVF with egg donation?

Clinics that offer IVF with egg donation follow a thorough and carefully regulated process when selecting egg donors. Here's a main steps of how clinics typically select egg donors.

Donors are generally required to be under a certain age, often around 37 years old or younger. This age limit is based on the fact that egg quality and quantity tend to decline as women age. Younger donors typically have healthier and more viable eggs.

Donors undergo a comprehensive health evaluation. This assessment includes hormonal, infectious, and genetic screening to ensure that they are in good health and free from transmissible diseases. It's essential to protect the health of both the donor and the recipient.

If the donor has not yet procreated, there may be an option to retain some of her eggs for her own potential future use. This precautionary measure safeguards the donor's fertility in case she encounters fertility challenges later in life and needs assisted reproductive technologies herself.

We are also conduct psychological assessments to ensure that donors are emotionally prepared for the donation process. This evaluation helps identify any potential psychological concerns or issues.

The recipient or the recipient's partner may have preferences for certain traits in the donor, such as physical characteristics, ethnicity, or educational background. The clinic will try to match these preferences as closely as possible.

In many countries, including Spain, egg donation is typically anonymous. This means that the recipient usually doesn't have access to the donor's personal information, and the donor doesn't have access to information about the recipient. The focus is on the medical and genetic compatibility.

Donor selection must adhere to local and national laws, ethical guidelines, and the clinic's own policies. These considerations vary from place to place and may include consent processes, legal documentation, and the protection of the rights of all parties involved.

It's important to note our clinic take their role in the egg donation process very seriously and work diligently to ensure the safety and well-being of both donors and recipients. This meticulous selection process is designed to maximize the chances of a successful pregnancy and protect the health and interests of all parties involved.

If you're considering IVF with egg donation, I recommend consulting with a fertility specialist in our reputable fertility clinic in Spain. We can provide you with specific information about our donor selection criteria and the steps involved in the process.

What is the process of IVF with egg donation treatment?

The donor is stimulated with gonadotropins for 10 to 14 days, then her eggs are punctured. The eggs collected in this way are fertilized by the sperm of the partner (or possibly a donor – in this case, it is called Double Donation IVF ) in the laboratory. The embryos thus created are cultured in vitro for several days. After several days of culture (in principle 3 to 5 days) one or more quality embryos, depending on the age of the recipient, is/are transferred into her uterus.

Carried out during a first consultation, this step is essential to address all questions, including that of contraception. The donor must sign a donation consent form, as well as the other member of the couple, if the donor lives as a couple. The evaluation of the donor's state of health includes the study of her family history and clinical and biological examinations. This assessment allows us to better understand the donor's fertility and to eliminate any contraindication to donation.

For the donor and possibly the other member of the couple, if the donor lives as a couple, this interview represents a free time to speak and conducive to reflection on the donation process in a neutral setting (neither family nor friends) and personalized . The interview with the psychologist or psychiatrist of the medical team is recommended and can be repeated on request.

Donation process lasts 10 to 12 days. It allows the maturation of several oocytes. It is generally carried out by the donor herself or by a nurse using daily subcutaneous injections. Most often, this stimulation phase is preceded by one or more injections to put the ovaries to rest.

During the stimulation period, 3 to 4 blood tests and/or ovarian ultrasounds make it possible to assess the good response to the treatment. The stimulation is thus adapted gradually. This monitoring also makes it possible to set the day and time of the last injection which completes the maturation of the oocytes.

Ovocyte collection is the last step of the donation. It takes place during a one-day hospitalization, 35 to 36 hours after the last injection. It is carried out vaginally under ultrasound control and under analgesia or anesthesia. The donor can then leave the hospital, provided she is accompanied. After collection, the oocytes are fertilized or frozen via the vitrification method.

The recipient receives treatment aimed at preparing her uterus so that it is ready to carry out the transfer. If the uterine mucosa is judged to be of satisfactory thickness by ultrasound control, the process can continue. We warn the couple that they must come to do the transfer, so there is very little time to organize the trip.

This is done in two stages:

  1. Preparation of the endometrium (via hormonal treatment to be taken orally or vaginally)
  2. Transfer of the embryos obtained as soon as the endometrium is ready (approximately 8mm in size). The transfer is quick and painless for the recipient. All that remains is to wait for the result of the pregnancy test.
