Donor EGG IVF Chennai, Egg donation india


In-Vitro Fertilization is an effective fertility treatment, which is employed when either one or both the partners have certain complications in conceiving by natural process. This procedure involves combining a sperm and an egg to result in a fertilized egg or embryo in a laboratory, and then implanting it in the uterus. A couple may seek out for the IVF treatment including donor egg or donor embryo IVF after consulting an expert for advice.


Egg donation process assists an infertile woman to conceive and give birth to a child. The first baby to take birth after an egg donation treatment was reported in 1983 in Australia and in 1984 in USA. In this process, the donor eggs and sperms are combined outside the body, in a petri dish forming a fertilized egg after a period of two to five days, which is then implanted into a woman’s uterus through her cervix.

The reasons for a woman’s infertility can be many:


  • Premature ovarian failure, i.e. an early onset of menopause, typically before the age of 40.
  • Decreased ovarian reserve and low quality eggs with ageing.
  • Fallopian tubes blocked.
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome.
  • Higher level of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) in the blood signifying fewer eggs present in the body.

Ovarian Stimulation for the Egg Donor

Firstly, you have to choose an egg donor who can either be a friend or relative or an unknown who is willing to donate eggs for altruistic or monetary reasons. If you wish to choose an anonymous egg donor, you can find one with the assistance of our fertility clinic. You will usually be able to choose a donor based on her physical appearance, background, educational record, and profession. The donors are mostly in the age group of 21 and 29 years, and have undergone medical, psychological, and genetic screening. Our clinic also performs various medical tests to check a donor for HIV, syphilis, cystic fibrosis and hepatitis B or C. We also carry out blood tests on our donors to know their blood count and blood group. After choosing a donor and signing a legal contract, we start the donation cycle of the donor, which takes three to six weeks. The process of egg donation consists of two phases.
During the first phase, the donor is given birth control pills to synchronize her cycle with the recipient’s cycle. Then, several injections are given to stop the normal functioning of the ovaries. These injections can be self-administered daily for one to three weeks. After this, the donor is given follicle-stimulating hormones (FSH) to augment the egg production in the ovaries. The patient is supervised throughout the cycle by our expert physicians using ultrasound exams and blood tests to determine her reaction to the hormones and the progress of follicle growth. Also, the recipient is given estrogen and progesterone to prepare the endometrial lining for implantation.

Egg Retrieval for the Egg Donor

Once the follicles are mature, they need to be retrieved. This is the second phase of the egg donation process. The donor is given one last injection of human chorionic gonadotropin hormone approximately 36 hours before retrieval to ensure that the eggs can be harvested. When the ultrasound imaging shows that the donor’s egg is ready to be harvested, it is removed from the ovaries through vaginal wall by inserting a needle and using an ultrasound for guidance. After that, the sperm and the donor eggs are combined in a petri dish in the laborato

Pregnancy Tests for the Recipient and Post-Retrieval Checkup for the Donor

The embryo that results from the fertilization is inserted into the uterus of the recipient through her cervix using a thin catheter. The doctors usually transfer a single embryo into the uterus to avoid the risk of multiple pregnancy. The post-retrieval checkup of the donor is performed to ensure proper recovery from the ovarian stimulation and retrieval. Also, the pregnancy test of the recipient takes place about two weeks after the embryos are placed in the uterus.
