General Information

This type of in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment is very effective for gay male couples interested in family building with IVF treatment.

How does the Donor Egg IVF process work?

The process of donor egg IVF starts after the endocrinologist determines that donor egg IVF would be the best option. The intended parents should then meet with a fertility counsellor to discuss the psychological risks and benefits to egg donor IVF and then decide if this treatment is right for them. Also, it is important to be sure about the cost involved and whether they can afford it or not, as IVF with donor egg is an expensive treatment when compared to IVF using your own eggs. Once you and your fertility doctor are clear about proceeding with this treatment, your next step will be to find an egg donor- this process is extremely important and requires time and careful consideration. Once you find your selected donor and once they are available for your cycle, you’ll need to attend to a number of legal and financial matters, you will need to sign a contract before the cycle can start. After all legal, financial issues are settled, the egg donor and intended mother need to complete fertility testing and screening required for treatment to begin. This starts the month before.

Note – If you are choosing the path of IVF using donor eggs, you should eat consider limiting caffeine intake and avoid eating fish that are high in mercury. Also getting enough sleep is critical for you and your baby.

‘’ The success rate for donor egg IVF may be lower when you are choosing a donor not ideal enough to be your donor candidate''.

‘’The largest group of patients using donor eggs with IVF are women above the age of 38-40’’

FAQs

What are the risks associated with donor egg IVF?

There are psychological risks associated with donor egg IVF treatment. The egg donor may later regret the decisions to donate her eggs or wonder what happened to the child conceived with her help, so speaking to a counsellor is very important to avoid this psychological risk. For the intended mother, the main risk of donor egg IVF is conceiving multiple pregnancies. To stay away from this risk, as few embryos as possible should be transferred.

Note – Talk to your doctor about whether single embryo transfer may be best for your situation

How much does it cost?

The cost will vary depending on the source of the egg donor; also the cost will vary from clinic to clinic. As donor egg IVF involves using eggs from not your partner, the cost is expensive when compared to using your partner’s egg for IVF treatment. You may be expected to pay anywhere from $20,000 to 35,000 per cycle. You can explore ways to pay less for your treatment by doing a lit bit of research.

What are my options if I don’t want to use an egg donor for my IVF treatment?

Not everyone wants to pursue donor egg IVF treatment. So for you all, the alternative options include- using an embryo donor, pursuing adoption, trying conventional IVF with your own eggs (your odds for success may be low).
