Sometimes issues with infertility may be solved without donor egg IVF with donor sperm. In order to understand the eligibility of the process, it is recommended to visit a fertility clinic first in order to get full information about various types of infertility treatments and their risks.
Because both egg and sperm do not come from future parents in donor egg IVF with donor sperm treatment, the preparations expected from them are minimal. To have this type of IVF procedure, a future mother must undergo some medical testing. Then, donors with appropriate characteristics and background are selected for in vitro fertilization process to begin.
Women agreeing to egg donation are given hormones for two weeks before starting the IVF procedure in order to ensure that their eggs will be suitable for the purpose of artificial insemination.
The IVF process in donor egg IVF with donor sperm is quite simple but takes time. The first step of the procedure is that doctors remove the eggs from the donor. The sperm is then removed from the male donor, and IVF treatment may begin. Doctors use ICSI treatment (inject sperm cells into donor eggs) or leave the only egg and sperm cells in a culture dish. The method is chosen by the couple who wish to have children. The doctors then learn how many eggs have been inseminated, and the final stage of IVF can be performed after 2-5 days. Doctors inject the so-called embryo into the uterus of the patient and hope that it will be implanted successfully.
While donor egg IVF with donor sperm is a quite effective method, fertility specialists cannot guarantee that artificial insemination with this method of IVF treatment will be successful. Sometimes two or more attempts are made in the IVF procedure to help women get pregnant in a healthy way. Fertility clinics can only offer the possibility of pregnancy, but this is never 100%. Therefore, future-parents who decide on donor egg IVF with donor sperm must be patient.
However, the final result will definitely pay off for even numerous attempts at infertility treatment with the IVF process.
IVF success rates vary depending on the age of women who want to be mothers, as well as other factors, including the health of sperm donors and women deciding for egg donation. However, it is generally accepted that success rates in donor egg IVF with donor sperm treatment are higher than normal in vitro fertilization and this difference increases with the age of a woman who decides to become pregnant by the IVF procedure. Some fertility clinics even estimate the success rates of IVF to be 90%.
What Is Donor Egg IVF with Donor Sperm? Donor egg IVF with donor sperm is a procedure, during which the IVF process is conducted using egg donation and sperm bank. Then, after artificial insemination is successful, a pre-embryo is planted in the uterus of the future mother.
In Vitro Fertilization Cost – Is It the Same around the World?
The cost of this treatment, as with almost any treatment, may vary depending on the country in which the procedure takes place. In the United States or the United Kingdom, the cost of IVF maybe two to three times higher than in countries famous for medical tourism. When choosing clinics for IVF treatment, it is necessary to select medical tourism destinations with strong reputations, high success rates, and successful clinics, as well as considering low cost. Turkey is an important example of destinations that provide these criteria.
What Is Better – IVF Treatment or Surrogate Mother?
It depends mostly on the wishes of future parents. Finding a surrogate may be more effective, but for some women, it doesn't feel the same as carrying a baby in the womb.
