Donor/Egg Giver Criterions:

Infertility institutions’s suggestions in Europe and America are based on as donor criterions.

Age is an important criterion in donor selection. The recommended age for egg donors for egg transplant is 21-35 years old. However, since we work with a focus on success, we accept those between the ages of 21-30, who we think will achieve better egg quality in our center.

Genetically necessary tests must be done, psychiatric tests must be passed (chromosomal analysis, thalassemia and sickle cell anemia, cytstic fibrosis in cases deemed necessary) and the donor’s own health and family history must be examined in detail.

It has to be paid attention that she has to be in the same blood group and physical characteristics with the reciever. That’s why applicant patients’ physical characteristics are asked. And carefuled to be similar with donor. Hair color, eye color and complexion is decisive characteristic. But patient can share with us the characteristics that she wants.

In our center donor and reciever’s credentials are kept as secret. Reciever and donor’s credentials are never shared because of law. Strict privacy policy is based on this issue.

There is no donor waiting list in egg donation procedures at our center. In other words, when we start the treatment, the donor will also start the treatment. In this way, treatments will be carried out in parallel.

Sperm is necessary for eggs to fertilized. That’s why, manhas to be in our center and give sperm in the donor’s egg collection day. 3-5 days sexual diet is favorable before this progress.

If man cannot give sperms on the donor’s egg collection day, man can come and give sperm in advance. Sperms which are taken are frozen and kept. In insemination operation, man’s frozen sperms can be used by dissolving.
