Are you a healthy woman between the ages of 40-42 in a lesbian relationship?

If you are a healthy woman between the ages of 40-42, there is a good chance that 20-25% of your eggs are still normal and are capable of creating a healthy child. If you would like to have your own children waiting any longer may become too risky due to the this egg aging process!

Egg aging process starts after the age of 30 and results in chromosome abnormality in more and more eggs, which makes them incapable of creating a healthy ongoing pregnancy and or a healthy child.

Hence there may be a good reason for you not to wait any longer and to proceed towards creating your own child with your own eggs, before all your eggs sadly become abnormal after the age of 42 [D. Wells, 2013]. 

To create your pregnancy and start your family you will need to use donor sperm

Sperm donors

At AVA-Peter we are proud to be able to offer you a donor with a basic profile from our own sperm donor database. Within the basic profile you will receive the following information about a sperm donor: age, blood group, height, weight, eye and hair colour. If however you would prefer to use one of the main European Sperm banks so that you can choose your own donor and gain in-depth information and profiles of the donor we are more than happy to help you with the choice and sperm transportation to our clinic.

If you would like to find out more about different sperm donor options and how we can use this to meet your own personal needs please contact us for a free non-obliging telephone consultation.

Insemination with donor sperm

If your follicular reserve is normal or reduced insignificantly we definitely recommend to try with your own eggs: IVF with your own eggs and donor sperm.

The IVF (in vitro fertilization) is a procedure of fertilizing your eggs outside your body (in a test tube). IVF allows not only to make sure that fertilization of an egg with a sperm has taken place and a developing embryo is placed at the right time in the right place, but also provides access to embryos at pre-implantation stage! 

If you would like to find out more about how your eggs are grown and collected and then put back in the uterus, please read more here:

IVF with donor eggs and donor sperm

If you have already tried IVF with own eggs without success, if your follicular reserve is low, IVF with donor eggs and donor sperm may become a very efficient solution, which can be realized in combination with own egg IVF or as a separate treatment.

If you have already tried IVF with own eggs without success, if your follicular reserve is low egg IVF with donor eggs and donor sperm may become a very efficient solution.

IVF with donor eggs and donor sperm involves an egg donor, a sperm donor and an egg recipient. The egg donor undergoes IVF treatment to produce eggs. These are then fertilised in the laboratory by the donor sperm. The fertilised eggs become embryos, and one or two of them are replaced back into the uterus of the egg recipient to create a pregnancy.

If you would like to find out more information about the egg donation process request a free, non-obliging consultation with us.
