Pre-implantation genetic screening of embryos at the AVA-Peter Clinic, St. Petersburg

The first healthy baby after pre-implantation genetic testing diagnosis in AVA-Peter was born in 2000.

Since 1999 AVA-Peter was the only clinic in Russia which could help men and women carriers of chromosome aberrations (translocations, inversions and deletions) to use own egg and sperm and become mothers and fathers of healthy children having no chromosome aberrations. Couples from all over Russia came to AVA-Peter to exclude genetic disease in an off-springs.

In 2013 AVA-Peter has implemented PGS for 23 chromosome pairs

which helps to increase IVF success rates

  • in couples after several unsuccessful IVFs or recurrent miscarriage
  • in women of advanced reproductive age
  • in younger patients and donor egg recipients PGS for 23 chromosomes helps to make IVF procedure highly efficient and safe by selecting the best embryo for transfer not only on the basis of morphology but also genetics.

A wrong chromosome number in an embryo is the major reason for a morphologically good embryo not being able to attach and/or progress to a live born baby.

Testing of all 23 chromosome pairs in “good looking “ blastocysts helps to choose those for transfer which do not only have the highest chance to attach, but also to stay and result in live birth.

PGS for 23 chromosome pairs eliminates the negative effect of maternal age on implantation and reduces time to pregnancy.

Egg Donation at the AVA-Peter Clinic, St. Petersburg

Egg donation is a treatment that can offer you the chance of motherhood when other treatments, such as IVF, have been tried and have failed. This may happen at any age, but repeated failures are more common in women in their late 30s and 40s. However, women in this age group usually have a uterus able to support a pregnancy. Therefore it is still possible to become a mother through egg donation even if your own eggs cannot be used. AVA-Peter accepts women aged up to 51 who wish to receive donor eggs. You may be married, in a relationship or single.

If you need egg donation, AVA-Peter is a sympathetic, experienced and highly professional clinic with high success rates and reasonable prices. At AVA-Peter, we have our own egg donor bank. This allows us to offer you a choice of healthy, attractive, educated young egg donors who are ready to start treatment as soon as you are.

AVA-Peter’s detailed Egg Donor Data Base with photos of donors is the only one in Europe.

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 undergo a complete medical evaluation by a doctor, gynaecologist and psychiatrist, and are screened for HIV, Hepatitis B and C every 3 months.

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 process of choosing or matching an egg donor is very careful and personal, enabling us to offer you an egg donor who corresponds to your physical appearance and meets your priorities. We do not proceed unless you are happy with the donor we put forward for you. It is up to you to tell us which characteristics are most important to you when choosing a donor. We respect your choice.
