Egg Donor in India


"Despite the relatively simple medical procedure it is a complex emotional process and extensive counseling is undertaken to ensure both donors & recipients have considered all the issues."


Egg Donor Program in India

We Care partner experienced fertility clinics across India providing an ethical and supportive donor program based on Indian and International protocols, governed by the ethical guidelines to assist people needing donor gametes (eggs or sperm) or embryos.

Despite the relatively simple medical procedure it is a complex emotional process and extensive counseling and consultation is undertaken to ensure both donors and recipients have considered all the issues. Donors may be 'known' to the recipients (possibly a friend or family member) or 'de-identified' (although traceable).

Openness is also more likely to lead to long term emotional and psychological strength of the donors and recipients (parents) and potential children, so we insist on counselling of all parties before a donor cycle is undertaken. Traceable and known donors are essential to ensure the continuity of this very successful program.


Need for donor eggs

All women are born with a finite supply of around 2 million eggs and this number declines with age. Originally, recipients of egg donation were primarily women who had experienced premature ovarian failure (menopause). This premature menopause may be caused by genetic reasons, sometimes surgery, or, most often, unknown reasons.

More recently, the largest group requesting egg donation is women in their late 30s/40s. These women have undergone several attempts of routine IVF without success and the scientific evidence suggests that the eggs they are producing are not suitable for developing healthy embryos.

For women who may not have healthy eggs or in fact have no eggs the only option for them to achieve a pregnancy is by using ,donated eggs (or embryos).


Considering becoming an egg donor ?

Women who have a plentiful supply of available eggs and are willing to donate them altruistically to those in need, may consider becoming an egg donor.

Donors are ideally aged between 21 and 38 years of age, who have usually completed their own family and want to facilitate pregnancy for another woman. A genetic, social and medical history (including blood tests) is needed from the donor before acceptance. There are significant screening tests undertaken on the donor including blood group, Hep B, Hep C, cystic fibrosis, syphilis, chlamydia, chromosome analysis and HIV status.

Egg donors need to be prepared to discuss and provide the following types of information : -


  • Medical history - advising of all known allergies
  • Physical description
  • Social/Lifestyle
  • Declaration - including details of any donation at other assisted reproductive treatment clinics.

The pregnancy rate of donor egg treatment is directly related to the age of the donor, number and quality of donated eggs.

How are eggs donated ?

Following an initial specialist consultation, counselling of both the recipient and donor is the next step. We discuss legal, social, genetic and moral implications of the donation as well as the medical related health checks and procedures involved.

A medical check is undertaken on the donor before undergoing an 'IVF cycle' to facilitate the collection of her eggs. They are then fertilised and transferred to the recipient.

The donor is given medication to stimulate her ovaries to produce an optimum number of eggs. The recipient begins taking oestrogen and progesterone to prepare the lining of her uterus. Blood tests monitor the donor and alert us to collect the eggs (just prior to the donor ovulating). The egg collection is done in a day surgery using a light general anaesthetic to ensure the woman is comfortable.

At the time of egg collection the recipient's partner provides semen which is used to fertilise the eggs in the laboratory. Traditionally the embryos are grown for 3 - 5 days before one or two are transferred to the recipient. Any other viable embryos are frozen for potential future attempts. After a two week wait a pregnancy test is undertaken.


Need for donor sperm

Although the last decade has seen significant improvements in the methods of surgically collecting and utilising very small numbers of sperm, there are still situations where too few, abnormal or no sperm are available and this is when donor sperm is required. We are also receiving an increasing number of requests from single women to conceive a child.

There are significant screening tests undertaken on sperm donors including blood group, Hep B, Hep C, cystic fibrosis, syphilis, chlamydia, chromosome analysis and HIV status. The sperm is stored for six months at which point the donor's blood is tested again for infectious diseases before a sample is used.

Considering becoming a sperm donor ?

Ideally sperm donors are of good health and would not describe themselves as having a 'high risk lifestyle' i.e. use recreational drugs or having multiple partners.

A semen analysis is the first step followed by a consultation with a clinician and compulsory counselling of the recipient and the donor. We discuss legal, social, genetic and moral implications of the donation as well as the health checks and procedures involved.

Sperm donors need to be prepared to discuss and provide the following types of information : -


  • Medical history - advising of all known allergies
  • Physical description
  • Social/Lifestyle declaration - including details of any donation at other assisted reproductive treatment clinics.


Embryo donation

Some couples may need to consider embryo donation due to egg and sperm problems. We Care's partner clinic's specialist team can facilitate this process.


Legal Considerations

We Care is mindful of the emotional and legal implications of donors, recipients and potential children and we are continually reviewing our program to meet the needs of our patients and that of the wider community.

Recipients are usually concerned about whether a donor might try to find the baby and claim it as her baby. Paradoxically, donors have the opposite concern, namely, that at age 18, the baby will find them and ask for a car or college tuition.

We take all precautions with the signing of the necessary legal agreements and documents by the egg donor and the recipient to ensure absence of any legal hassles anytime in the future
