Egg Donation Program
A donor ovum is used when patient’s ovaries do not produce their own ovaries because of different reasons or when repeated attempts of artificial fertilization ended in failure. Ovaries donorship is also used in medicine if there is a risk to transmit hereditary deceases to a child.
An ovum donor can become a woman aged 20 to 32, who is physically and mentally healthy. The ovaries donorship program is absolutely anonymous. Spouses, who use donor ova, cannot see donor’s photos and are informed only about such characteristics as height, weight, colour of hair and eyes, blood group, and rhesus-factor, nationality, whether a donor has a family and children.
It is desirable that a recipient (a patient, who uses donor ovaries) is a woman aged to 50. An ovum donor receives no information about recipient.
Indications for conducting in-vitro fertilization using donor ova are the following:
1. Therapist’s report;
2. Clinical blood analysis;
3. HIV, RW, hepatitis B, C;
4. Blood group, rhesus-factor;
5. Microscopy of discharge;
7. Gynaecological examination;
8. Pelvic ultrasound.
