Egg Donation Treatment

In vitro fertilization treatments using donated eggs have a higher likelihood of pregnancy initiation compared to any other fertility treatments, with an average of 60% of embryo transfers resulting in pregnancy regardless of the recipient’s age.

However, deciding to undergo egg donation treatments can be difficult and carefully considered for many. Nonetheless, research indicates that individuals who conceive with donated eggs are on average more satisfied parents and love their children just as much as they would their own biological children.

Most often, individuals opt for egg donation treatments when it is no longer possible to conceive with their own eggs. Common issues are typically related to age-related decline in egg quantity or quality. This may follow several unsuccessful IVF treatments with one’s own eggs and/or miscarriages.

Sometimes, during the first consultation, it becomes evident that egg donation treatment is the most realistic option for achieving a successful pregnancy.

Before starting treatment, the treatment process is thoroughly discussed, and any concerns are addressed. All egg donation treatments include at least one visit with a psychologist specialized in egg donation.

Currently, the majority of egg donation treatments at Dextra are conducted in a way where the donor’s stimulation and egg retrieval are timed to suit the donor’s schedule, and embryos are frozen after fertilization and blastocyst culture. Subsequently, embryo transfer is planned as a frozen embryo transfer into the recipient’s uterus. This approach ensures that both the donor’s and the recipient’s treatments can be carried out according to the desired schedule, taking into account factors such as the results of ERA/BeReady tests. Egg donors are healthy women under 36 years old who have undergone medical and psychological evaluations, have been tested for infectious diseases, and have good fertility assessed by our own staff at Dextra Fertility Clinic.

According to Finnish law, gamete donors are registered with Valvira (National Supervisory Authority for Welfare and Health), but the donation process itself is completely anonymous.

Upon reaching the age of 18, the child born from donated eggs has the right to access the donor’s identity if they wish.

Due to the shortage of egg donors in Finland compared to those in need, there is usually a waiting time of approximately 4-6 months for treatments, depending on the situation.

The age limit for our egg donation treatments is 46 years old.
