Fresh or frozen donor eggs?

Assisted reproduction with donor eggs is needed for example when a woman’s own ovarian reserve has declined or the quality of the eggs has reduced. Usually the chance to have a healthy child for a woman over 43 years is very small and using donor eggs is recommended. Donor eggs can also be used if there is a risk for a child to inherit a genetic disease. Nova Vita Clinic has its own Egg bank which makes the planning and timing of the procedure very fast and convenient.

Egg donation can be arranged with fresh or frozen donor eggs. The frozen donor egg ivf process is easier to plan and there is usually no waiting list. The procedure can be arranged at the most suitable time for the woman to whom the embryo(s) would be transferred. The planning of egg donation procedure with fresh donor eggs can take a couple of months because menstrual cycles of two women (donor and recipient) need to be synchronized.

How does the egg donor process work?

IVF with donor eggs process step by step

  1. Contact our patient coordinator Tiina Lille. Tiina will help you book a Skype meeting or a first time visit with one of our doctors.
  2. Meet the doctor with Skype or face to face.
  3. Your personal patient coordinator will provide you with further instructions and guide you through the whole egg donation process.
  4. Our donor coordinator matches you with the best possible donor. You can wish for certain characteristics (height, eye, hair and skin colour).
  5. In the treatment with frozen eggs your endometrium is medically prepared for the embryo transfer (with fresh eggs your cycle is also synchronized with the donor). You can do this and the follow-up ultrasounds in your own country. We thaw the eggs and fertilize them with your husband’s fresh or frozen sperm or use donor sperm (in egg donor treatment with fresh eggs this needs to be done on donor’s egg retrieval day). After a few days we will do the embryo transfer (and freeze all other good embryos) or freeze all the embryos to be used later in the frozen embryo transfer.
  6. You can take a pregnancy test 2 weeks after the embryo transfer. You have over 60 % chance to get pregnant with the first attempt!

Who donates eggs in Estonia?

Our egg donors are:

  • Carefully chosen according to the legislation in Estonia and the international standards of quality.
  • Healthy, non smoking young women (aged 20 to 33).
  • Screened for infectious diseases and genetically tested (Karyotype, Fragil X, Cystic Fibrosis)
  • Estonian residents with Nordic-Scandinavian appearance (caucasian)
  • Altruistic anonymous egg donors.
  • Well cared for.

We understand that usually the woman seeking for egg donation would prefer that the donor would look similar to her. Our donor coordinator will help you find the best match. In Estonia egg donation is anonymous. The following information will be disclosed about the donor: nationality, skin colour, education, marital status, the existence of children, height, body build, hair colour and eye colour. Woman’s close relative (for example a sister) can also be a non-anonymous donor.

Egg donation process for the egg donor

All candidates undergo donor screening and blood tests are taken for infectious diseases (HIV, HBV, HCV, syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhea). In a health check-up the candidates with low ovarian capacity or any known inheritable diseases in the family are ruled out. Donor candidates also have a discussion with a qualified midwife. It is very important for us that the donor really understands all the aspects of the donation before making the decision to donate. We don’t want anyone to regret their donation afterwards.

We take really good care of our donors and this is why most of our donors do a second or even a third donation cycle.

The donors undergo a normal  ovarian stimulation (as in IVF treatment) to produce a good number of eggs for the treatment. The aim is to provide enough eggs for a successful treatment but not to compromise the wellbeing of the donor (with for example ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome).
