What is Egg Donation?

What is Egg Donation?

During a woman’s lifetime, many different factors can affect the ovaries, such as problems with ovulation, problems with the uterus, blocked fallopian tubes, early menopause, genetic diseases, and the effects of chemotherapy or radiotherapy and unfortunately all these factors can cause the ovaries to lose their capability of producing good quality eggs. Age is also an important factor. Women are born with all the eggs they will ever produce and as women age, the number of these eggs decreases because each month, unfertilised eggs are released from the body through the menstrual cycle. Once women reach their mid thirties, a drop in the number of eggs and an increase in the number of abnormal eggs may also be the reason for seeking the help of an egg donor.

Who would benefit from Egg Donation?

Oocyte donation can be used in both IVF and surrogacy programmes and could be a solution for:
– Women with polycystic ovarian reserve.
– Women with low ovarian reserve.
– Women with early menopause.
– Women who produce low-quality eggs or who do not respond well to hormonal treatment .
– When assisted reproduction treatments have failed on various occasions.
– Women that suffer from a genetic disease.
– When the access to the ovaries through a surgical procedure is complicated.

At Nest we have teamed leading fertility clinics and agencies around the world to offer a range of egg donation and IVF services.
