In today’s article, I want to shed some light on the practical part of choosing an egg donor for your egg donation program. My intention is to give you tools that lead you to the best result and a simpler view on this complicated topic.
First of all, there are some things you need to know about egg donors. You may already know something, but to understand the real picture of egg donation in detail, you also need to see it from the perspective of the women who actually donate. This is very powerful and useful knowledge.
“How can this help me in selecting an egg donor?” you might ask. Being on the side of the egg recipient alone, your perception of an egg donor cannot be complete or unfounded. And this, of course, affects your approach to the selection process itself, as you lack snippets to see and understand the whole picture.
Who is an egg donor?
Egg donation is allowed in Ukraine by law. An egg donor is a young woman, who at some point in her life and under certain circumstances has come to the decision to donate her eggs through an IVF procedure, to become a so-called IVF donor. Such a woman usually has to meet specific and very strict criteria for egg donation not only to provide healthy biological material and a sufficient number of eggs for IVF, but also to avoid egg donation risks to her own health. Donor eggs can have a different fate: they can be stored in an egg donor bank or be fertilized immediately with the designated father’s sperm, or they can become frozen donor eggs and be stored until a couple chooses that profile. egg donor. However, frozen eggs are not as popular as fresh cycles with fertilization, because a frozen egg significantly loses the required quality.
Medical test candidates for egg donors
There is no exception, all egg donor candidates undergo a very thorough examination for all possible bacteria, viruses, TORCH infections, HIV, syphilis, hepatitis, hormones, ultrasound and much more. Only 4 out of 10 candidates successfully pass these tests. We do not perform any type of treatment for egg donor candidates, although any medical tests will come out with bad results, although our doctors always give a treatment recommendation for these women. Our intention is to involve only 100% healthy egg donors in order to ensure the highest possible chance of success for our IVF programs while protecting the health of the egg donors.
Why do many egg donors donate only once?
An unhealthy egg donor cannot be accepted into a program primarily due to the risks and complications that could be life threatening. The requirements for donors are very high not only because future parents need a good biomaterial, but also to protect the health of the egg donor. Even with a completely healthy candidate, many complications can arise during stimulation and after egg collection, such as discomfort during stimulation, drug side effects, hyperstimulation syndrome during protocol or after egg collection. Such egg donors usually inform their egg donation agency or reproductive center of their intention to donate only once as their egg donation experience was uncomfortable or had some complications and it is very easy to understand.
The point is that these egg donors never reach a static database, because they donate once and have no intention of having a profile to choose in the future. If there can be a database, it can only be a database of egg donors who are willing to return and donate again. Taking this into account, I want to draw your attention to the vast databases of egg donors in Ukraine and other countries which have many fertility agencies and clinics and age profiles that do not change over the years and many of them do not. I’m. available. The conclusions are obvious.
Proven egg donors, who are they?
Proven egg donors are candidates with successful egg donation experience. Basically, it means that this proven egg donor has successfully participated in a program that resulted in the pregnancy of an intended mother or surrogate mother with live births after egg retrieval and embryo transfer.
Such an egg donor database is very valuable, as choosing such an egg donor can significantly maximize the success rate of an embryo transfer.
In addition, Intended Parents can be assured that such an egg donor will give a good response to hormonal stimulation and provide high quality eggs. Proven egg donors are in high demand and usually have an additional fee for the donation.
In our Ukraine egg database, we have many good looking, healthy and proven egg donors and this is the only possible egg donor database that can be provided to our future parents immediately with no waiting time. A new egg donor, never donated, can also be presented to a couple after completing the egg donor questionnaire. Our center always has many egg donors in different stages: first request, passed the initial appointment with the fertility doctor, undergo medical tests and in the final stage – fully tested and ready to start the protocol.
How to ensure that the egg donor profile is not fake?
Ukraine does not have a common (global, public, state) database of egg donors so that every donor can register with you. Each clinic and agency has their own list of records and is usually not shareable. The quality of the examination and selection of egg donors in Ukraine varies from clinic to clinic, from agency to agency. The images of egg donors, for the most part, are very beautiful and it is very difficult to tell if these images are real or fake, if there are real people behind these beautiful images.
How can a couple trust an agency when choosing an egg donor? Egg donation in Ukraine is anonymous and, taking this into account, it is not possible to track your egg donor during stimulation until egg retrieval and to prove that it is the same person you chose from the profile. It is a matter of trust in a center, but we have our completely legal ways to make you more confident in your choice, it is our know-how and “secret weapon” and we prefer to talk to our clients only and during the first meeting.
Why are egg donors special?
At our center, we only specialize in exclusive egg donors, with perfect health, higher education and a model look on demand. The medical check-up contains karyotype and tests for certain genetic syndromes, alcohol, drugs and smoking tests. We have a guarantee for the number of eggs per stimulation cycle, the minimum number is 10 eggs from one egg donor, but usually our egg donors give 15-25 high quality eggs and this leads to good quality and number of embryos on day 5 Having mostly Caucasian egg donors, we have also started a selection of Asian egg donors and successfully offer such profiles to would-be parents. All our candidates are available at the moment of introducing them to couples, because we have found a perfect approach to the egg donor selection process. After a customer has filled out the egg donor questionnaire, the coordinator looks at the parameters and only matches them with freshly tested and 100% available profiles to save time for the customer and make everything easy and convenient. Every couple will be satisfied with the match and as soon as the egg donor is booked, sometimes it doesn’t even reach the database due to such a quick booking. The process of new requests, physical exams, matching, selection and booking of an egg donor is always an ongoing process and we basically have no egg donors on the waiting list. Although we have a static egg donor database with password access, this is the best egg donor database in Ukraine, as it only contains proven egg donors who have successfully donated and candidates are willing to come back for a stimulus. So basically, we always have new candidate arrivals and a large database of available and proven egg donors. This approach significantly saved the time between contract signing and the actual IVF procedure and improved the IVF success rate of each program.
Super fast start
Our unique approach to the Ukraine egg donation process allows us to present an egg donor to our clients even before the actual signing of the documents and agreement and on the first visit you can have an egg donor booked and meet a surrogate mother if you need it. This minimizes the time between the first visit and fertilization. The cycles start immediately and there are no analogues of such a fast egg donation process in Ukraine.
