Egg Donation

Can we see and select egg donor through photo online?

As per the guidelines laid down by ICMR, we run an anonymous egg donation programme, wherein neither the egg donor nor the recipient ever see each other in person or see each other’s photos, but rest assured that we will select a healthy, fertile egg donor for you

Usually what is the age of egg donor at your centre?

All our egg donors are between ages 20 to 30 years and have qualified to become egg donors after going through  stringent selection process already described in detail on this site.

What is the level of their educational standards and their socio-economic standard?

Generally almost all of our egg donors have passed 10th standard exam at least. Some of them are graduates too. They usually come from low middle class to middle class strata of society, and have clean living conditions, which are already verified by our care taker and care taker periodically visits their houses to verify these conditions.

What tests are done for egg donor?

All our donors  undergo very elaborate testing already given in very details on this website.

Do you split the donor’s eggs between /among the recipients?

No. A donor contractually assigned to you is ovulated for exclusively you and if there are extra embryos are frozen for your subsequent use,as will be decided between us.

When will you transfer the embryos and how many embryos are transferred?

Normally 48 to 72 hours after IVF/ICSI/IMSI and do blastcyst transfer also if the client is particular about it and if we get more embryos, but it is best to leave this aspect of decision to us to adjudge the best in the given conditions.

How long does it take to choose an egg donor?

Normally we have ready egg donors and one doesnot have to wait long before we get you a suitable egg donor. However, if you have any specific requirement regarding donor’s appearance or higher educational status, ethnicity etc. then it may take a little time.

How much do you charge for embryo freezing or semen freezing?

Embryo freezing comes as a part of the egg donation package but semen freezing is charged @ $ 100 per freezing.

How does egg donation differ from embryo adoption?

In the egg donation process only the egg belongs to the donor while it is your husband’s sperm that is used for embryo formation, whereas in embryo adoption both the egg and the sperm belong to donors. Egg donation is more expensive than embryo adoption. However, both the egg donation and embryo adoption are effective treatment options for women with poor ovarian reserve.

What are the legal aspects of egg donation ?

According to ICMR guidelines, commercial egg donation is perfectly legal in India, however, it has to be anonymous and confidential. The egg donor signs a contract with and gives consent to  the clinic, forsaking her rights over the donated eggs.
