The chances of getting pregnant with donated eggs through artificial insemination are much higher than with IVF or ICSI treatment with your own eggs.
The reason is a higher rate of healthy oocytes, as the donor is usually much younger than the recipient in donations. Per treatment cycle, the probability of becoming pregnant is 65%. However, success does not just depend on the treatment itself being free from complications. The likelihood of pregnancy is also influenced by your age, hormonal status and lifestyle. Obesity, stress, nicotine and excessive consumption of alcohol can reduce your chance of success.
Our clear goal for all our patients is to achieve pregnancy in as little as one treatment cycle.
You have been diagnosed with infertility, yet you do not want to give up the happiness of a family?
We are happy to assist you during your egg donation treatment. If somebody in your family or circle of friends would offer herself as a donor, please bring her to the Wunschkind Klinik.
What does the donor have to consider?
The donor must be physically and mentally healthy. She must meet stringent criteria and conduct various investigations so that we can exclude infectious and hereditary diseases and can rely on healthy, fertile oocytes. Of course we carry out a detailed, medical consultation with the donor before starting the treatment.
The donor neither has the duty to support the child conceived with her eggs, nor is the child entitled to inherit. The donation is always voluntary. It is also forbidden that the donor demands payment any other consideration for the donation.
After the donor has undergone hormone stimulation we remove the follicles at the optimal time.
The preparation of the egg recipient takes place in parallel. Both treatments are coordinated. The day of egg collection, the recipient's partner has to provide a sample of fresh sperm. For this, a discreet room in our clinic is available. We then fertilize the donated egg cells with the sperm.
After fertilization, we closely monitor the development of the embryos for 3-5 days and insert 1-2 embryos into the woman's uterus at the right time. If there are surplus embryos, we freeze them for you, so they are available for future treatment cycles.
After two weeks, we can determine by blood test, if you are pregnant or not. Another 3 weeks later we do an ultrasound to see if the pregnancy has developed correctly.
"For some couples, egg donation treatment is the only chance to have a child. We help you seize this opportunity. "
