The egg donation process consists of four phases.
- In the first phase, ovarian hyperstimulation, donors receive a series of hormonal drugs to produce multiple mature eggs.
- During phase two, egg retrieval, mature eggs are removed from the donor through a surgical procedure.
- The next step is about fertilizing the donated eggs with the sperm of the future father.
- At the final phase, the resulting embryos are transferred to the receiving woman after a period of five days.

As long as humanity has existed, fertility has been a major issue for the medical field. Nowadays, fertility problems affect more than 20% of the population. It is only since the late 1970s that a real chance for conception has arrived, thanks to the development of IVF treatment.
Recommended for..IVF treatment is in short the in-vitro fertilization of woman's eggs in a laboratory environment.
In-Vitro-Fertilization treatment is recommended to couples that have unprotected sex regularly for longer than a year and have failed to get pregnant.
The fertilized eggs are placed in incubators that simulate the human body. These fertilized eggs are then observed for three to five days for their progress: some will develop into viable embryos. The IVF treatment ends and the viable embryos are transferred to the patient’s uterus and from that point on, pregnancy develops naturally.
There are several variations of IVF treatment for cases where fertility problems of one partner (or both) do not allow pregnancy with their own eggs or sperm. In such cases, the treatment is performed using donors’ eggs or sperm (or both).

- Premature ovarian failure is a leading cause where women stop producing eggs at an early age. There are cases where women go into early menopause in their early 20s. Women suffering from premature ovarian failure can no longer produce healthy eggs that can lead to pregnancy.
- Some women are born without ovaries, in which case the only possibility of having a baby is through egg donation.
- Women who go through chemotherapy or radiotherapy whose ovaries may have been damaged by the treatment may also need this procedure
- Women who produce eggs but have genetic diseases could also choose egg donation to ensure healthy children.
- Older women with diminished ovarian reserves or older women who are going through menopause could also become pregnant with egg donation.
Use of donated eggs results in a highly enhanced pregnancy rates in the region of 75% - 80%. This is due to the egg donors’ proven fertility. Egg donors go through strict screening to ensure that the egg donation will be successful. Most egg donors are below the age of 30 with proven ovarian reserves. They are also screened for genetic diseases and a psychological examination is performed.
