Success Rates: IVF with Egg Donation
Every intended parent that comes to us will gain a comprehensive understanding of how our egg donation program works and why more and more intended parents (egg donor recipients) trust in the PureOvum collective.
The PureOvum egg donor collective has experienced significantly high clinical pregnancy rates. The contemporary egg donor program continues to be at the forefront of advances in egg donation, fresh-cycle technology.
Excellent donor egg IVF success rates are a result of many factors, beginning with the egg donors’ age and robust physical and mental health. PureOvum egg donor requirements in California were set by using strict guidelines set by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).
Statistically, fewer than 3 percent of those who apply to become an egg donor for our Southern California physician-owned egg donor program will make it through our screening process and become egg donors.
What is IVF with Egg Donation?
What is egg donation? Egg donation is a process when a woman (egg donor) gives her eggs to another woman (recipient) to allow the recipient to have a baby. To donate eggs, the donor must be given medications that will cause her to develop multiple eggs over a single cycle. The eggs are then safely removed from the donor during a minor surgical procedure.
This is done by placing a needle that is attached to an ultrasound probe through the vaginal tissues and into the ovary. The eggs are then gently aspirated (suctioned) from the ovaries. Once the eggs are removed, they are evaluated in the laboratory. Then sperm from the male partner or a sperm bank is placed around or injected into each egg to allow for fertilization (one sperm entering one egg) to occur. This process is called in vitro fertilization (IVF).
IVF with Egg Donation Success Rates
The use of IVF with donor eggs overcomes most of the natural barriers to conception and live birth – barriers such as problems with ovulation, fertilization, and egg quality (including chromosomal abnormalities).
The success of egg donation depends on many factors but is not considered to be related to the age of the recipient. Success rates compiled by the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) and by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for the year 2014 show an average birth rate per embryo transfer of 53.6 percent for all egg donor programs using fresh eggs.
