Long waiting times in UK…

Because of long waiting times in UK hospitals due to Covid19, I hit upon the idea of having my bilateral hernia surgery done while on a 2-week holiday in Antalya. After making inquiries through Yasmin, I had a short but comprehensive consultation with an eminent surgeon Prof Alihan Gürkan and my operation was scheduled for a day halfway through my stay in Antalya. It went well with keyhole surgery, I stayed in overnight and was discharged the next day, which gave me 6 days to recover before my flight home to Scotland. Yasmin kept in touch throughout, making sure I had transport to and from the hospital, and a special thanks to Fatma, my mentor and guide at the Memorial Hospital on my day of tests and examinations. I telephoned my surgeon a few days after the operation for advice on removing my plasters and he was most helpful and reassuring about my complete recovery. I was not too fond of the breakfast, but considered it as another form of medicine! My flight home was amazingly comfortable without painkillers, although they were definitely needed for a few days after my operation. In conclusion, I would be happy to have other treatment like this, though in a nice sort of way I hope never to set eyes on the Memorial Hospital again. 🙂

A very positive outcome

A very positive outcome, following my decision to pursue in having dental cosmetic surgery/treatment carried out in Turkey. Excellent advisory skills by Flymedi rep Abud. He was professional, well informed, and followed me up with total attention throughout the whole process. Last but not least, I thank Dr Ahmed Kumsan and his team at Infinity Smiles Dental Clinic for their commitment and professionalism. Highly recommended.

Thank you Flymedi

I was considering several different options, however Abud was by far the most committed and helpful of all the agents I'd been in discussions with. Everything was organised for me and I was guided throughout and if I was feeling apprehensive about anything or had any questions Abud was always on hand to answer my questions and give reassurances. I'm so happy with the results of my operation and I was left overwhelmed by how friendly and supportive everyone was throughout. If you're considering using flymedi then I can honestly say you'll be delighted with the service both before during and after your surgery.

Recommended For Donor Egg IVF

Women who cannot produce an egg for starting the pregnancy processor cannot use their eggs for fertilization can be the candidate of the Donor Egg IVF procedure. There are many reasons to choose donor egg IVF treatment:

  • Post-cancer treatment
  • A woman born without her ovaries due to a congenital anomaly
  • Repeated canceled IVF treatment
  • Unexplained repeated IVF failure
  • Age-related infertility (most often for women age 40 or older)
  • Early menopause
  • The gay male couple who want to have a child with a surrogate

Not Recommended For Donor Egg IVF

If there is a reason to prevent you from getting pregnant or if your IVF treatment with your own egg has failed several times, your doctor may recommend Donor Egg IVF treatment. If you find the appropriate donor, you can start the procedure with your doctor's approval.

Overview

Some couples cannot have a child because the female partner cannot produce eggs, and no medication can stimulate it. If another woman donates eggs to her, these women can give birth to a child. This treatment is called donor egg IVF. There are certain criteria in egg donation to increase the success rate and reduce the risk rate of the treatment. Women who donate eggs should normally be younger than 32 years and ideally had a child before, should have no significant health problems, and should not have any genetic disease or infection that may infect the recipient of the baby.

Preparation

The process of finding an egg donor requires time and careful thinking. Patients can spend months at this step. Among the most common egg, donation sources are the fertility clinic that offers you IVF treatment, an egg donation agency, an egg bank, a friend or family member or another couple in IVF treatment. The egg donation and implantation procedure is similar to standard IVF treatment. After a thorough examination, the woman receiving the donor egg needs to receive some hormone treatment to prepare it for the egg. If they still have ovaries working, they'll need estrogen and progesterone treatments to make their cycle exactly the same as the donor. In the meantime, the donor will also be treated with hormones to trigger superovulation.

How It Is Performed

The doctor performs a transvaginal ovarian aspiration to remove the eggs from the donor's ovaries. An ultrasound probe is inserted into the vagina, and a needle is used to remove the egg from each follicle. During the procedure, which takes approximately 30 minutes, the doctor may give the donor painkillers, sedatives, or anesthetics. Since this is a small and short procedure, the donor does not need to stay in the clinic or hospital overnight.

Recovery

It is recommended that women wait approximately 2 weeks after embryos enter the uterus before performing a pregnancy test to see if the donor egg IVF treatment works. For some people, this waiting time is considered the most difficult part of the treatment process. If pregnancy occurs, an ultrasound scan is performed in the coming weeks to check the progress of the procedure as expected. Then the normal prenatal care process given to all pregnant women for the IVF participant begins.

Risks

Donor egg IVF treatment has similar risks to women undergoing traditional IVF. In addition to the psychological risks that may occur, the greatest possible risk for the donor is to develop ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). The primary risk of donor egg IVF for the intended mother is multiple pregnancies.

Side Effects

The main side effects of donor egg IVF treatment include:

  • Bruising at the injection site
  • Mood swings
  • Tender breasts
  • Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS)

Success Rates

According to the study conducted by Fertility and Sterility, the donor egg IVF procedure results in a successful birth with the rate of 49,4–50%.

Before And After

Couples who do not have children may not be able to move to pregnancy because the female eggs cannot be used due to certain circumstances. In such cases, donor egg IVF treatment can be used. In parallel with the success rate, the treatments that offer the desired result give the couples great satisfaction and happiness.

What is Donor Egg IVF?

Donor egg IVF is the treatment used in cases where the female's eggs cannot be used for various reasons in IVF treatment. Following the retrieval of the eggs, the eggs are fertilized in the in vitro fertilization (IVF) laboratory using sperm from the partner of the recipient couple or in some cases with donor sperm.

 

How Long Does Donor Egg IVF Procedure Take?

The screening process usually takes several weeks to complete. Once an egg donor is selected, a cycle lasts about four weeks. Women who expect pregnancy during treatment should come to the clinic about 7-10 times for ultrasound monitoring and blood tests within a two-week period.

 

What Is the Cost of Donor Egg IVF?

Using donor eggs is a high cost over the current cost of IVF. The exact cost of donor egg IVF procedure may vary greatly depending on the use of fresh or frozen eggs, how selective the recipient is, the IVF clinic has chosen, the location of the treatment clinic, etc.
