Egg donation

Bookmark and Share

Egg donation (ovum donation) is a treatment that can offer you the chance of motherhood when your own eggs cannot be used to create a pregnancy. At AVA-Peter, we have our own egg donor bank. This allows us to offer you a choice of healthy, attractive, young egg donors who are ready to start treatment as soon as you are.  

In IVF or ICSI cycles with fresh donor eggs we usually transfer one fresh embryo (one superior quality blastocyst) and freeze the remaining good quality embryos. If fresh embryo transfer does not work we usually transfer two frozen embryos. Still the final decision on whether one or two embryos should be transferred is taken by the patients on the basis of our recommendation. Our recommendation is based on the patient’s medical situation and embryo quality.

In 2013 the clinical pregnancy rates in fresh donor egg cycles were 54,0% per one fresh embryo transfer and 48,8% per frozen embryo transfer.
Our recommendation to transfer only one fresh embryo if the quality is superior is based on the following facts:

  •     Transfer of two  fresh embryos increase your chances insignificantly in comparison to one(clinical pregnancy rates after transfer  of two fresh embryos were 61% in 2013)
  •     Transfer of two fresh embryos results in 40% twinning rates
  •     Twin pregnancies are known to have complications in mother and children  5-6 times  more often than singleton pregnancies

If you need egg donation, AVA-Peter is a sympathetic, experienced and highly professional clinic with high success rates and reasonable prices. Donor anonymity is guaranteed in Russia, and we have no shortage of egg donors. Many patients travel to us from their own countries to seek egg donation treatment. Our matching process is very personal, enabling us to offer you an egg donor with physical characteristics (such as hair and eye colour) similar to your own.

Advantages of egg donation at AVA-Peter

At our clinic, there is one egg donor per recipient. You therefore receive all the eggs that your personal donor produces in one stimulation cycle. There is (no “egg sharing” with other patients). Because our donors are young and have proven fertility (they have at least one child), there is a high chance of success (54% clinical pregnancy rate with fresh embryo transfer in 2013). We usually transfer 1 or 2 fresh embryos. We have a large egg donor darabase, there is no waiting list for egg donation, and we can work flexibly to fit in with your schedule. Furthermore, our prices are clear and affordable.

AVA-Peter offers you to choose an egg donor by yourself from the detailed database of IDEAS or a very personal donor-recipient matching service. Most of our donors are of North European appearance, with blonde or brown hair and blue, green, grey or brown eyes. All procedures are carried out at our own clinic. We transfer fresh rather than frozen embryos. This considerably improves the success rate. Embryos are grown to blastocyst stage (5 days old) and you have the choice of transferring 1 or 2 embryos. Any extra embryos of high quality may be frozen for another attempt. We can carry out pre-implantation screening (which can include gender identification) to help you balance your family.

Criteria for egg recipients

AVA-Peter accepts women aged up to 51 who wish to receive donor eggs. You may be married, in a relationship or single.

Criteria for egg donors

Our egg donors are aged under 30, with an average age of just 26. They are fertile, with at least one child of their own. They are also attractive, intelligent and healthy. They undergo a complete medical evaluation by a doctor, gynaecologist and psychiatrist, and are screened for HIV, Hepatitis B and C every 3 months.
