Surrogacy, Egg Donation & IVF

About Surrogacy

Surrogacy is an assisted reproductive technology that allows intended parents to have a long-awaited child with the direct involvement of the surrogate.
Sometimes infertility can be absolute, and the couple has no chances to conceive their own baby in this case. The only chance will be surrogacy.
A surrogate has a noble mission: she gives a childless couple a chance to become parents.

About Egg Donation

Egg donation is the transfer of eggs from one woman to another for the subsequent IVF procedure. In most cases, donor eggs are used for IVF of women with low fertility, that is, with a reduced ability to produce their own eggs (a healthy woman produces over 400 thousand oocytes per life). As a rule, the ability to produce eggs decreases with age. After 35 years, it becomes more difficult to obtain high-quality eggs.
When is egg donation required?
• abnormalities of genital organs
• menopause
• risk of transmission of genetic diseases
• premature ovarian insufficiency
• the negative outcome of IVF with own oocytes
• poor oocyte quality
• removed ovaries
In all of the above cases, donor eggs are fertilized with the husband’s sperm. The embryo is then transferred to the uterus of the surrogate or the biological mother.
Donor program can be completely anonymous at the request of the donor. All prospective donors must undergo repeated medical tests at the expense of our agency.
