Treatment from Outside of Johannesburg: We have optimised the egg donation process to make it is easy as possible for recipients looking for donor eggs – easy egg donation. Once all medicals have been confirmed, if recipients of donor eggs still have a cycle, this will be synchronised to the confirmed egg donor’s cycle. This can happen whilst you are still in your home town. A prescription will be sent to you with egg donation guidelines as to how and what to do. We will also advise exactly when you need to be in Johannesburg for your treatment. This process is applicable if you are within South African borders or any where else in the world. Time in South Africa for Egg Donation: You will need to have a final scan on day 10 – definitely no later than day 12. Egg retrieval is normally around day 14, so recipients of donor eggs will need to ensure that sperm is available on the day of egg retrieval to fertilise the eggs. The embryo transfer is normally done on day 5 or day 6 post egg retrieval. So in a nutshell, you will need to be available from around day 10 to 5 days post day 14 – around 10 days. Required Medicals to Confirm Your Readiness to Become Pregnant: To optimise the process for egg donation, woman as recipients of donor eggs should have necessary medical tests. Men, whose sperm will be fertilising the eggs, should also have specific tests done. Access to Required Medicals for Recipients of Donor Eggs Egg Donation Success Rate: The success of an egg donation program is dependent on variables, including the egg quality, sperm quality and readiness of uterus to accept a pregnancy. In proceeding with egg donation treatment, please note that we attempt to improve and optimise these factors, but there will always be variables which impact on egg donation success. What is important is to optimise your own chance and improve your own egg donation success. Other patients who insist on proceeding with their own sperm or uterus, despite the odds provided that this will adversely impact their success – is an independent issue to your own. Having said this, considering all the human variables, baby2mom Egg Donation and Surrogacy Programme has a success rate of about 48%. This ratio is considered quite normal and if any other egg donation agency or egg donor clinic quotes higher stats, consider additional information first – e.g. number of embryos transferred.
