Russia is one of the countries where a woman has the legal right to become a mother through donation programs regardless of her marital status or the existence of a partner. Artificial insemination and embryo implantation require written consent by the couple or a single woman. Information about the IVF treatment, embryo implantation or identity of the donor is kept strictly confidential. Gametes of the donors who provide their sperm or eggs for the treatment of infertility relinquish all parental rights; they are absolved of parental responsibilities in relation to the baby as well.
Which Cases Require Donor Eggs?
- When a patient is lacking reproductive cells due to the early depletion of the ovarian reserve in the ovaries;
- When a patient is suffering from hereditary diseases or genetic disorders;
- When a patient has had previous unsuccessful IVF cycles, revealing that the use of own eggs for achieving pregnancy is not an option.
How Egg Donor is selected?
A relative of a patient can be used as a potential donor. This would allow the child and the biological mother to be genetically related. However, often this is impossible. That is why our Clinic maintains its own data bank of oocyte donors who have passed the required clinical testing in accordance with the Russian Ministry of Health Regulation Number 67. Furthermore, it is mandatory that the donors already have a healthy child of their own. We carefully screen all the donors in our bank to be sure in full satisfaction and safety of our patients. We do not have a waiting list and therefore we can start your treatment immediately.
How is Nova-Clinic's Egg Donor Program Implemented?
- We select a donor;
- We synchronize the patient's and the donor's menstrual cycles to perform successfully a transfer of embryos without cryopreservation.
- We induce superovulation in donors;
- We monitor folliculogenesis in donors and endometrial development in patients;
- We puncture the donor's egg follicles and fertilize oocytes with the sperm of the patient's husband;
- We nurture the newly-produced embryos;
- We transfer the embryos into the patient's uterus;
- We provide hormonal support for the luteal phase of the patient's menstrual cycle;
- On the12-14th days after the embryo transfer, we determine if the patient's blood or urine contains beta-HCG.
