Egg donation involves using another woman’s ovum (egg) for fertilization and subsequent implantation. It is suitable for those women who are unable to produce suitable eggs even after using fertility drugs and also due to the absence of ovaries.
Eggs produced by the donor during her menstrual cycle are harvested and the fully mature ones are selected for egg donation to infertile couples.
For a woman to donate her eggs, some standard criteria are designed for legal reasons and to make it safe for donors as well as recipients.
Women with a history of cancer, heart disease, and genetic problems are not permitted to donate their eggs. Besides general physician check-up is also necessary to select good and healthy egg donors. The checkup includes blood sugar, BP, HIV, HbsAg, and other essential tests.

During the process
- Doctors prescribe fertility drugs to stimulate egg production and their development is monitored with the help of ultrasound scanning.
- At the same time, hormone levels in the blood are monitored.
- At the right time, and with the help of a fine needle that is passed through the vagina, each egg is removed safely. The whole process is done under general anaesthesia.
After the egg removal procedure, the donor can go back home the same day or after an overnight stay. Some women may notice some blood in their urine, which is normal and should not cause any serious concerns.
Another method used for the same is Vitrification.
This technique uses very high concentrations of cryoprotectant, usually three or four times higher. A cryoprotectant is a substance that prevents the freezing of tissues or prevents damage to cells during freezing. Rapid cooling is used to freeze the embryos around 10,000 times faster to prevent the toxicity of the high levels of cryoprotectant and to achieve vitrification.
Vitrification in simple words is a process of changing the liquid state into gas formation instead of changing it into a solid state that allows cells to be preserved in their existing state.
Normally, embryos can be stored for ten years and after this, their storage will depend on the woman’s medical circumstances and her partner or sperm donor’s medical status.
The success rate of pregnancy using frozen embryos is similar to or slightly lower than that following fresh embryos.
