For older women with poor ovarian reserve, donor egg IVF
is a great option, because it increases their chance of getting pregnant
The problem is that it's hard to find good quality egg
donors - and because response to superovulation is an unpredictable biological variable,
often the number of eggs the clinic is able to collect from an egg donor is
Tragically, lots of clinics continue to use eggs from a
fresh egg donor , and this means that often the egg donor doesn't grow many
eggs in the treatment cycle, or they're not able to synchronize the cycles of
the donor and recipient properly.
This means they up getting only a few eggs from the egg
donor; or the timing of the egg collection is not matched properly with the
recipient's endometrial receptivity.
However, because the clinic has lots of patients, and they don't want to maximise
their income, they end up splitting the eggs between lots of recipients ! This
is especially true when they fly down "diva donors" from overseas for
As a result of this, each patient gets allotted only a few
eggs, which means she gets only a few poor quality embryos, and the entire purpose
of using donor eggs is lost .
These patients not only end up failing fresh IVF cycles with
their own eggs, they end up failing these fresh donor egg IVF cycles as well !
The clinic they advises them to do surrogacy - not because
they need it , but because the IVF clinic is doing a shoddy job. The irony is
that the clinic now earns even more money in the process ! What a tragic farce
this has become today.
We have an active donor egg IVF program where we guarantee
that we can offer you at least 10 mature high quality donor eggs from a high
quality fertile donor, because we use only frozen eggs, which has now become
the international standard practice. Read more at http://www.donoreggs.in/
