We have excellent Success Rates not only in own egg IVF and ICSI treatments, but also in our egg donation and embryo adoption!
In our egg donation and embryo adoption programmes clinical pregnancy rates are above 60% and live birth rates are above 49%, per fresh single embryo transfer; single elective embryo transfer is standard practice.
We always freeze and store all remaining, usable embryos for the future should the first transfer be unsuccessful, or you desire directly related siblings. We have excellent success rates with frozen embryos too! 98% survival rates after thawing and above 50% clinical pregnancy rates per transfer!
Our excellent results in egg donation have enabled us to offer a “Baby Guarantee” to all women in the age of 49, or under, who would like to protect themselves against bad luck! We are so sure of our egg donation success rates that if our patients do not deliver a baby within 3 IVF egg donation tries, or 4 embryo adoption attempts, we will return to 80% of their money back to them.

Choosing the right egg donor?
At our clinic you can choose your own egg donor from our extensively detailed Database of Egg Donors!
In all European clinics an egg donor is chosen for the patient by a doctor, or medical team. AVA-Peter is the only clinic in Europe which offers you the opportunity of choosing an egg donor yourself!
We know that the extent of the information the patient will receive about the donor is very important for many women and their partners. Some women’s desire is to find an egg donor with maximal physical similarity to her own looks, other women choose “by feeling”. We therefore offer extensive information about egg donors, which includes descriptions of their looks and looks of their relatives, family history, as well as the photos of the donor in the age under 12.
For many women physical characteristics are not as important as the egg donor’s psychological, social, educational and familiar background. Many patients are also interested to find out more about our egg donors’ human values! This is why we ask all of our donors to write their own personal motivation letters for our egg donor data base.
Our egg donor database offers you the opportunity to take the leading role in creating your future child. Your process of choosing the best egg donor, from our egg donor data base, is very personal and we do not proceed if you are not completely happy with the donor you have chosen. It's therefor possible for you to base your choice of an egg donor on the qualities which are most important to you, as we believe that you and your partner’s priorities and human values are the most important criteria in helping you to choose the right individual egg donor.
We respect your choice!

What is the Egg Donor Database?
- In total we have more than 600 loyal, healthy, attractive and educated young egg donors
- All our egg donors are under 32yrs old and have healthy children of their own!
- All potential egg donors undergo comprehensive medical testing, including consultations with 3 medical doctors: a GP, a Gynecologist and a Psychiatrist. We accept less than 10% of potential egg donor candidates! Whichever egg donor you choose you can be sure that she has passed through all the necessary medical examinations.
- You can choose from more than 150 egg donors at any one time and you will always be able to choose from several egg donors who have the same eye, hair, height, skin colour, skills etc. as yourself
- There is no waiting time for treatment -all egg donors on the data base can donate in the nearest future and the time frame suitable for you.
- The database provides you with 150 individual and personal details about each egg donor, their photographs until the age of 12 and personal letters about why they have chosen to become an egg donor.
We understand that the detailed information about the donor is very important, but we also understand that the egg donor is not the most important person is this project. The most important person is you; an egg from a donor would not be able to grow into a child by itself. An egg needs a uterus and sperm and you are the one that combines these pieces together to create your child. You are the parent to this child’s existence!

Why is the AVA-Peter Embryo Adoption Programme so successful, safe and affordable?
Throughout 20 years of experience AVA-Peter Clinic has established excellent success rates in our Embryo Adoption Programmes, well over the average in Europe. Among other reasons, this became possible due to using only top 10% of professional egg and sperm donors, rather than embryos donated by fertility patients, as in other European clinics.
The programme is very affordable because instead of covering all the expenses connected to individual egg donor, a patient may receive just one, or two, blastocysts of excellent morphology from our extended donor embryo bank.
For all embryo adoption packages we guarantee the availability of top morphology blastocysts, available for transfer at any time, because our embryo bank contains more than 500 excellent donor embryos from young healthy donors. We also offer our ‘Baby Guarantee’, which means we return 80% of your money back to you if no baby is born within 4 embryo adoption attempts.
Embryo adoption treatment at our clinic is available as a single try, 3 package, or our Baby guarantee programme.
The following applies to all 3 embryo adoption programmes:
- Physical matching of embryos, by AVA-Peter team, on the basis of the following physical characteristics: colour of eyes and hair, height, weight and body complexion.
- Extended profile of your egg donor with photos and family history available to you free of charge.
- The Extended profiles includes egg donor photos, personal letters, physical description, family and medical history.
- Top egg and sperm donors who have own healthy children and have donated before with positive result
- Top morphology blastocysts
- No waiting list
In our clinical practice we increase success rates not through the number of embryos transferred, but through thorough selection of potential egg and sperm donors and high standards in the laboratory, this ensures only excellent quality blastocysts are selected and used. Single elective embryo transfer is a standard practice.

Egg number guarantee for our egg donation programmes
We have many patients, in egg donation treatment, who have tried IVF with their own eggs, but sadly there were no, or very few eggs, available at egg retrieval. These patients are scared that an egg donor may also produce a low amount, or no eggs at all. We believe ensuring a good amount of eggs available for each recipient is one of our primary responsibilities.
At AVA-Peter we are very strict and critical in the process of recruiting egg donors. Among other inclusion criteria ovarian reserve and excellent fertility history are of top priority and we therefor accept less than 10% of potential egg donor candidates. In 19 out of 20 egg collections, in egg donors, a good number of eggs are collected. Still, in one out of 20 egg retrievals, in egg donors, there may be not be sufficient amount of eggs for the recipient. To these patients we offer the opportunity of having the missing amount of eggs from another suitable egg donor, without any extra charge!
We feel that it is our responsibility to provide our patients with the opportunity of having a sufficient amount of eggs for fertilization, so we strongly believe that having no, or a low amount of eggs available for fertilization is our issue to rectify and that this is outside of our patients’ risks.
We offer our patients a guarantee of 8 eggs and a guarantee of 12+ eggs in our egg donation programmes.
Embryo guarantee for egg donation and embryo adoption programmes
Many of our patients have tried IVF with their own eggs more than once and have never managed to have an embryo transfer. There were always some eggs available at egg retrieval, but no embryos have ever grown from these. Was it bad luck? Was the sperm to blame? What if the sperm does not fertilize the donor eggs? These patients are very much afraid of the same problem happening again, even with donor eggs: that no embryos will be available for embryo transfer!
At AVA-Peter we are very confident of the quality of our donor eggs and the level of our embryological laboratory procedures. 9 out of 10 donor egg IVF cycles are very straightforward and there is a good amount of excellent embryos available for transfer and freezing. Still, one out of 10 donor egg IVF cycles may be not as good, with little, or no embryos available for transfer. To these patients we offer an opportunity of creating the missing amount of embryos without any extra charge!
We feel that it is our responsibility to provide our patients with the opportunity of having a sufficient number of embryos for transfer, capable of creating pregnancy. We believe that having no embryos available for transfer in a donor egg cycle is our issue to rectify and that this is outside of our patients’ risks.
We offer our patients a guarantee of having at least 2 embryos available for transfer and freezing on day 5 if they use an egg donation programme with a guarantee of 8 eggs.
We offer our patients a guarantee of having at least 4 embryos available for transfer and freezing on day 5 if they use an egg donation programme with a guarantee of 12 eggs.
In our embryo adoption programme there is always a guarantee of having top morphology blastocyst, from young healthy donors, available for embryo transfer, because we have more than 500 donor embryos available in our embryo bank for the patient’s choice at any time!
Baby Guarantee for egg donation and embryo adoption programmes
Many of the patients that come to us for egg donation, or embryo adoption, have already been through multiple fertility treatments, spent a lot of money and have still not achieved a result. One of many concerns expressed by our patients is: “What if we spend more money on fertility treatment and don’t get the result we wish for? Then we are left with no money and no child”.
We offer our egg donation and embryo adoption patients treatment with a baby guarantee for this very reason!
Egg donation: should no baby be born within 3 donor egg IVF attempts, patients will get 80% of their money back.
Embryo adoption: should no baby be born within 4 embryo adoption attempts, patients will get 80% of their money back.
