2008-2012 Donor Egg IVF Success Rates (Pregnancy) at EmBIO
Clinical Pregnancy Rate per Embryo Transfer
Who can be a recipient?
In general, any woman with a medical or genetic indication for using an egg donor can be a recipient, if there are no medical contraindications to pregnancy. Our current age limit is 50 years. The decision to utilize donor eggs is made in association with our staff and consultants. If a male factor exists, donor egg IVF with ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection into the eggs) is also available.

Who are the egg donors?
We have made a huge effort to provide a large selection of screened donors. They are primarily recruited from colleges and suburban communities, including many young women with high level educations. Information available to you on all donors includes physical characteristics (height, weight, hair colour and type, body build, and blood type), ethnic background, educational record, occupation, special interests and audio interviews.
How is the donor egg IVF procedure done?
Recipient couples are asked to select one or more donors whom they find suitable. One of the selected egg donors will be offered to a recipient couple upon availability of the egg donor. Final approval of the specific selection is always made by the recipient couple. The Institute staff will coordinate the cycles of the donor and recipient to accomplish fresh embryo transfer whenever possible. Synchronization of cycles includes using a series of medications to facilitate a hospitable uterine environment for transfer of embryos. All viable eggs produced in a single donor cycle are inseminated, and all embryos belong to the recipient couple. If there are embryos in excess of the number for safe transfer, cryopreservation of additional embryos is available and is strongly advised. Cryopreserved embryos can be used for subsequent attempts at pregnancy whether or not the fresh transfer is successful.
How affordable is donor egg IVF?
A detailed description of financial options is enclosed. EmBIO’s financial counsellors would be pleased to talk with you about which program is best for you.
EmBIO’s donor egg IVF coordinator is available to answer your questions, arrange a telephone or on-site appointment or provide you with additional information on any aspect of EmBIO’s donor egg IVF program. To reach the donor egg IVF coordinator, please call +30-6973882675.
Is gender selection an option?
Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is available on-site at EmBIO Institute, which has one of the world’s largest and most experienced PGD laboratories. PGD is a form of prenatal diagnosis performed on early embryos prior to implantation in the uterus and initiation of pregnancy. PGD can be used to prevent disease.
Will the donation be anonymous?
Yes, always in accordance with national regulations that apply.
