How Soon Can I Start Treatment with Donor Eggs?

27th December 2017 in Treatments

Does using an egg donor mean you face a longer treatment process? We don’t have a waiting list for UK donor eggs or fertility treatment at Manchester Fertility, so if you need an egg donor to have a baby, you can start right away.

But there are a number of stages to treatment with donor eggs, before embryo transfer can happen and you can take your pregnancy test.

Fresh donor eggs: Treatment process

The treatment process for a fresh donor eggs IVF cycle – where you donor’s eggs are retrieved and fertilised straight away - include:

  • Initial consultation
  • Pre-treatment screening tests
  • Counselling for you and your partner
  • Egg donor matching
  • Synchronisation of your cycle and the retrieval cycle of your donor
  • Ovarian stimulation of your donor
  • Preparing your uterus for embryo transfer using fertility drugs
  • Egg retrieval from your donor
  • Fertilisation of donor eggs using your partner’s sperm (or donor sperm)
  • Embryo transfer – best quality embryo chosen
  • Pregnancy test two weeks later

Frozen donor eggs: Treatment process

A frozen donor eggs cycle is a quicker, shorter process as the donor eggs are already in our donor egg bank at our Cheshire fertility clinic, ready for your use.

This means there’s no delay whilst cycles are synchronised, no worry about how your donor will respond to stimulation or how many donor eggs you’ll have for your IVF cycle. Stages include:

  • Initial consultation
  • Pre-treatment screening tests
  • Counselling for you & your partner
  • Egg donor matching
  • Preparing your uterus for embryo transfer using fertility drugs
  • Thawing & fertilisation of frozen donor eggs
  • Embryo transfer
  • Pregnancy test two weeks later
