How we coordinate our egg donation process abroad
We run a successful egg donation program, according to the National Legislation and the European Directives. All egg donor IVF cycles are fresh and each donor is prepared for one recipient. This means that a recipient will have a minimum guaranteed number of eggs (around 8-10). Using fresh eggs maximizes your chances of success.
Approximately, 80-90% of our egg donation patients have surplus good quality embryos to freeze. This means that if a cycle is not successful, a second attempt can be undertaken with the use of frozen embryos at a minimum cost and with a much shorter stay in Greece. Furthermore, freezing surplus embryos will mean that any subsequent frozen embryo transfers may result in a biological sibling.
Once you contact us to enquire about donor egg IVF treatment we will set up a call to either speak via telephone or Skype.
If you attend in person for your first consultation with us, we will be able to undertake some blood tests and also freeze a semen sample. This visit does not need to last more than a day so you can easily return home the same day if required. Once we receive your blood groups and photographs we need approximately 2 months to find a suitable donor and then organise your cycle. There are no waiting lists for donors at Newlife. We will start you and your donor’s medications simultaneously.
