In the past few years, the primary indication of egg donation at most IVF centers has been for women with Premature Ovarian Failure (POF). It is defined as menopause occurring before the age of 40 years which affects nearly 1% of the women population. It is well known that the fertility of a women decreases after the age of 40 and has a less chance of having a successful IVF. When they find out that the eggs are not fertilized, they would then prefer for an egg donor.
Women who consider egg donation should undergo a series of tests and have formalities to be completed so that they can proceed with the procedure. In order to become an egg donor, there are few steps to be followed. The donor must possess some compulsory qualities such as to fulfill the age criteria, to have a correct BMI value, to have a regular menstrual cycle,be abstained from substance abuse, heavy smoking and drinking and should have no genetic issues. Only after having all these clarified, they can proceed with the egg donation. The donor must call the fertility clinic and express their interest to become an egg donor and fill in the donors application form. Next, the person will be given an appointment with doctor and will be explained completely about the procedure so that they remain doubt free. Then the person undergoes a blood test and a transvaginal scan to know how the person would react towards the treatment. Later, the person is invited to discuss about the medical history of the patient and her family history and also go through more screening tests. The person, then, signs the Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority (HFEA) and the donors details are entered in the database. The donor is asked to write a personal description and good will message which will be read by your recipients and any children conceived from your egg donation (in future). When matched with your recipient, the treatment starts and the donor will be registered with the Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority. In some IVF centers, the donor egg recipient are requested to undergo a preparatory “Mock Cycle” to make sure that the hormonal regimen achieves the required levels in the body.
Pretreatment counseling, prior to egg donation should include not only be a detailed discussion of the procedural aspects, risks and expected likelihood of success associated with the treatment, but should also include an exploration of the psychological and social aspects of “third party” reproduction.
The principal risk for the recipient is multiple pregnancy, because egg donors are young (usually less than 35 years) and pregnancy rates are high because of this. The age of the recipient, even if over 40, does not affect pregnancy rates.
