Donor Oocyte Program-A Infertility Solution


Assisted reproductive methods like Donor Oocyte Program (DOP) has helped many couples with infertility problems to conceive a child. Even a woman who cannot produce her own eggs (oocytes) can become pregnant through in vitro fertilization with donor eggs.

An egg donor follows the same protocol for medication and oocyte retrieval as an IVF patient. At the same time, the recipient receives medication to cause her hormone levels to mimic those of the donor. After the retrieval, the donor’s eggs will be fertilized with the husband's sperm. The resulting embryos will then be transferred to the patient's uterus. 
Who is the best Candidate for the Donor Oocyte Program?

Women who stop producing eggs earlier than normal, a condition known as premature ovarian failure. The cause is usually unknown. In some women premature ovarian failure is caused by autoimmune disease, surgery or exposure to radiation or drugs. If a woman's uterus is normal, she can conceive with donor eggs.
  • Women who carry a genetic abnormality in their chromosomes and want to avoid passing it to their children.
  • Women with other medical problems also can benefit by oocyte donation.
  • Women who are resistant to fertility drugs and produce a limited number of eggs during attempted superovulation. These patients, considered "low responders" to fertility drugs, have poor success when in vitro fertilization is attempted with their own eggs because few are able to be aspirated.
  • Women who are 40 years of age or older. The success of in vitro fertilization-embryo transfer (IVF-ET) decreases with age. Women age 35 and younger have the highest pregnancy rates and the lowest miscarriage rates with IVF-ET. Compared to these women, those who are age 40 or older have about half the chance to conceive and twice the chance to miscarry.
In order to synchronize the process of recipient’s cycle to that of donor doctors use a combination hormonal supplement. Once the recipient is pregnant maintains the hormones of the donor throughout her first three months of pregnancy.

The cost of fertility treatments in India is very high compared to other countries.Oocyte donation help you achieve your dream of having a baby.
