EGG DONATION

Our 10 egg guarantee

Egg donation consists of the donation of a guaranteed minimum of 10 oocytes (eggs) from an anonymous donor for IVF treatment. It is a safe, reliable fertility treatment with a higher rate of success over all other IVF treatments .

Unlike other countries, egg donation is completely legal in Cyprus. Cyprus assisted reproduction law protects donor identity, so that the donor never knows the child’s identity and the child never knows who the donor is.

Our unique egg donor program consists of a wide selection of experienced donors; who have proven to be successful.

Like with all aspects of your fertility pathway, at Embryon YOU provide the input for your perfect donor using your personal photos and your personal criteria. Our strict screening measures and innovative Perfect Match 360 system assist us in securing your selection together.

Benefits of Egg Donation

One of the main benefits of IVF egg donation is its high rate of success. The principle being that the age of the egg, not the uterus, is the critical factor. Success rates for donor egg IVF can be 3 to 10 times higher than with traditional IVF. Much of this success is due to the use of young and fertile egg donors.

Egg donor IVF offers some possible advantages over adoption.

IVF Process

Egg donation

IVF Process

In our IVF lab, the donor’s eggs are combined with the provided sperm. The number of embryos transferred and the day upon which the embryos are transferred depend upon the number and quality of embryos that result from this cycle. In most cycles, our physicians transfer two embryos on day five.

Many egg donors produce a large number of eggs which increases the possibility of freezing embryos for future use. Among many other advantages, pregnancy with donor egg IVF has a reduced rate of miscarriage and Down Syndrome.

Below are some of the steps involved in the Egg Donor IVF process, most of which take place at our clinic, in conjunction with our in-house egg bank:

Egg Donor Selection (If you are using an in-house donor, you may be matched with a donor at the start of your testing/evaluation cycle. If you are using a foreign donor affiliated with an external egg donor agency, they will be screened utilizing the same criteria as the in-house donor program. The timing of the cycle will be determined by factors such as schedule availability of you, the donor and our IVF specialist. You will discuss the timing directly with your coordinator.

Egg Donor Screening

How we help you find
your “Perfect Match”

At Embryon we are proud of our high standard for donor screening.

Our screening tests comply with ESHRE and ASRM regulations, and ensure our candidates have no physical, genetic or contagious diseases. Our donors must be between the ages 20 and 30 and in overall excellent health.

We perform genetic, medical, and sexually transmitted disease screening in addition to an elaborate social and psychological screening. Psychological screenings are performed by a licensed therapist with a degree in psychology and include personality and attitude assessment, and an in depth interview for motives and personal background.

Only those who have completed this process have been added to our list of anonymous donors. While this makes ovum donation costly, it assures the highest quality of medical care which is the backbone of Embryon’s standard.

How we help you find your “Perfect Match”

Perfect Match 360º

Along with our rigorous screening methods, we listen to you carefully in terms of what an ideal donor candidate means to you.

In combination with your personal photos and criteria we have integrated an innovative matching system which achieves the most accurate donor choice possible: Perfect Match 360°. This system ensures we find your ideal donor candidate based on thorough genetic assessment (flagging over 500 genetic anomalies), as well as special criteria unique to you such as personal phenotype (physical characteristics, ethnicity, eye colour, hair colour, height and body type, blood type) and biometric recognition (defining facial resemblance).

Embryon Donor Perfect Match
International patients

Egg donation cycle options for international patients:

At Embryon, we help patients from around the world achieve their dream of becoming parents. Patients from Australia, New Zealand, UK, Germany, France, Spain, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, China and Korea have sought our expertise in finding their perfect egg donor.

Most of our international recipients of donor eggs have the monitoring of their uterine lining (usually only 1 ultrasound test needed) done in their home country. Arrival to Cyprus is only needed a day or 2 prior to the donor’s egg retrieval. A stay in Cyprus is required until embryo transfer. The total length of stay in Cyprus is 4-7 days.

Short Stay

4-7 day stay in Cyprus

An “initial consult” is required first so that we can go over your case in detail and discuss all relevant issues. You can then have the monitoring of your uterine lining performed in your home country. Usually, only one ultrasound is required to document a proper uterine lining.

The Intended Father or sperm producer should plan to be at our clinic on the day of the donor’s egg retrieval unless we have previously frozen sperm. The Intended Mother or gestational surrogate should plan for a final ultrasound prior to the donor’s egg retrieval unless the plan involves a “freeze all” of embryos for a later transfer. This is the most common scenario utilized by patients living abroad.

Long Stay

2-3 weeks in Cyprus

You can make one extended trip to Cyprus and have the monitoring of your uterine lining as well as the embryo transfer performed in our center and then return home. This option requires a 2-3 week stay here in Cyprus.

The exact duration of the stay depends on the duration of the ovarian stimulation of the egg donor. In this scenario, we have you do a long distance consult prior to coming in person to make sure the relevant issues are covered.

In all cases, the male partner needs to be here by the day before the donor egg retrieval procedure. We need his sperm on the day of the egg retrieval in order to inseminate the donor eggs. The female recipient needs to arrive to Cyprus by the day before the scheduled embryo transfer procedure.

We prefer (but do not insist) that you have 1- 2 days of “rest” after embryo transfer. However, many (successful) couples have traveled home either the evening of the transfer, or the next day.

Duplicate IVF cycle using Anonymous Donor Eggs

At Embryon, we help patients from around the world achieve their dream of becoming parents. Patients from Australia, New Zealand, UK, Germany, France, Spain, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, China and Korea have sought our expertise in finding their perfect egg donor.

This option is particularly useful if you have found your ovaries do not respond well to the stimulation medication used in IVF. During a duplicate cycle, both mother and donor undergo IVF treatment to produce more eggs than a classic cycle. You can then select the best embryos for embryo transfer

The decision about which embryos to transfer is yours and you can choose between: your donor’s embryos or your own embryos, but not a combination of the two.

We offer this treatment to all but especially for older women, women with diminished ovarian reserve levels or women who do not respond well to stimulation medication.
