We operate with recognized and registered Donor Oocyte banks. Donors will be selected according to the criteria listed below and will be strictly confidential. Before a woman is accepted in the donor oocyte program, she will be examined by the Bank’s gynaecologist, a genetic and, if necessary, a thorough psychological evaluation will be done on the prospective donor. The recipient will be privy to the donor’s age, physical health and education status. Any information revealing the donor’s identity will be confidential under a code name that only the hospital administrators can access. Likewise, the recipient’s identity is also kept confidential. We follow ART 2022 guidelines issued by Govt of India, Ministry of Health in this regard.
PROFILE OF DONOR:
- Must be between the ages of — and —-
- Should not have any marked physical characteristics such as an unusual noise that might distinguish her.
- Donors are selected according to the recipient’s race, colour and blood type, donor’s intelligence level should be average or above average
- Must not have any physical restrictions against procedures such as controlled ovarian hyperstimulation and egg collection
- A person who has known genetic diseases in the family or has lost a baby for unexplained reasons cannot be accepted in the program as a donor.
Egg collection does not reduce the oocytes available to the woman. The procedure does not affect the donor’s fertility and age of menopause onset. Her chances of achieving pregnancy will be no different after she donates her eggs.
Briefly, the donor goes through two main steps. The first prepares the ovaries to stimulate increased egg production, and the second is collecting those eggs that develop. The woman will start the drug regimen on the second or third day of menstruation. The eggs will be collected after approximately 8-12 days of stimulation. Egg collection marks the end of the donor’s role in the process. Her eggs will be inseminated by the sperm obtained from the recipient’s husband, and the resulting embryos will be transferred to the recipient’s uterus.
