Egg Donation: Helping Couples Conceive Children Despite Infertility

By Kiara Somers Subscribe to RSS | February 18th 2012 | Views:

There are couples who are not lucky enough to have a baby using natural ways. It is saddening that some couples would consider filing for separation because of infertility. However, some would consider adopting children, so there would be someone to receive all their parental affection. But there are some who would try for more scientific ways just to have their genetic children. With the help of egg donation, this can be possible.

Egg donation helps in In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) where the egg and the sperm are fertilized outside the woman’s body. There are several reasons why couples consider In Vitro Fertilization—some women do not have healthy eggs that are capable of fertilizing, some have reached menopausal stage and cannot produce egg cells anymore, and some just don’t seem to have the capability of conceiving children as they have encountered several miscarriages before.

There are certain qualifications that aspiring egg donors should have before they can be allowed to donate egg cells. Usually, women of ages 21 to 35 are qualified. It would be a plus if the donor has given birth to a child before, or had successfully donated eggs in the past—these indicate that the donor is fertile. The qualifications may also depend on the couple’s requests and preferences—the couple may request a friend or a relative to donate eggs for them.

The egg donation screening involves a thorough process, especially if the donor is not a “known donor.” Medical examinations are performed to see if the donor does not have genetic disorders that the child might inherit. Thorough medical background check will also be done to make sure that the donor will not likely pass any fatal disease. It is important that the donor should know very well about her family’s medical history so that the doctors can easily check her medical background. If the aspiring donor is adopted or has insufficient knowledge about her family’s medical history, it would be best if she will not continue with the donation process.

The success of the egg donation depends on several factors: the health and the age of the egg donor, the quality of the sperm, and several others. It is the IVF experts’ responsibility to ensure that the process is carefully done from its first stages until it is finally completed. Couples should also seek legal and emotional advice before making such a crucial decision.

Although there are couples who have successfully had children through this process, egg donation still entails risks. It is important that couples understand these very well, and will be willing to take these risks once they have decided to undergo IVF.
