Egg donation is an effective treatment where the eggs are extracted from an anonymous egg donor. Once the eggs are extracted, the eggs are fertilized in the laboratory for 2-3 days. The fertilized eggs are cultured with the male sperm to develop an embryo. The resulting embryo is transferred into the surrogate’s uterus or the intended mother’s uterus. But if you are suffering from PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), it does not necessarily mean that you will require donor eggs while IVF treatment in progress.
What to keep in mind before undergoing Egg Donation?
Using eggs of a donor can be a complex process as it affects both the parties – your family and the resulting child. A series of screenings are performed for both – egg donor and the prospective parents before beginning the treatment. According to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, a specially-trained reproductive psychologist does a psychological evaluation of the egg donor.
Only PCOS is not an indication to choose egg donation. It can be also used if the ovaries are absent or damaged, or you have low ovarian reserves or a severe genetic condition you have a genetic condition or you are medically unfit to undergo ovarian stimulation.
In most cases, the first step to treat a woman with anovulation caused due to PCOS is the intake of clomid orally. Usually, clomid is given with metformin (treats insulin resistance and induces ovulation). Other options can intrauterine insemination or in vitro fertilization.
