IVF with egg donation in Spain

In vitro fertilization (IVF) with egg donation and partner’s semen is a technique in which donated oocytes are fertilized by partner’s sperm in the laboratory.

Donors are selected based on extremely strict medical criteria test. We do a selection of the oocytes donor according to physical and immunological characteristics of donor and the receiver. Spanish legislation requires that egg donation is anonymous, where donor and receiver will not meet each other.

Donors have to undergo a treatment for about two weeks to stimulate their ovaries, administering hormones similar to those produced by the woman herself (gonadotropins). This stimulation is regularly monitored by analyticals and ultrasound scans. After several follicles have reached the right size, final oocyte maturation is induced. Eggs are removed by follicular puncture under sedation.

Once the donor eggs have been harvested, they are placed in a culture dish for a few hours while the partner’s sperm is prepared by andrology laboratory. Insemination of oocytes is performed by “microinjection of a sperm into each mature egg” (ICSI), where a sperm is injected directly into each egg.

The successful embryos are observed a few days, until the moment that the best quality embryos are transferred to the uterus of the mother. Under Spanish legislation we can transfer up to 3 embryos, but normally are transferred 2 embryos.

IVF with donor eggs is recommended to women who have problems with their ovaries and have to use eggs provided by a donor. The most common causes are that ovaries are not producing eggs or that the eggs are not of sufficient quality. IVF with egg donation is also used if there is a genetic disease or a condition that makes ovarian stimulation impossible. It is also recommended after several unsuccessful cycles of fertility treatment with your own eggs or if you are over 42-43.

Costa Blanca extends along the eastern coast of Spain and covers the province of Alicante that has the best all year round temperatures for a speedy recovery for treatment abroad. The World Health Organization considers the climate as one of the most favorable in the world for overall health and well-being. This is why engaging in health tourism in this region is of such a great benefit. Especially, for those looking to undertake a fertility treatment Costa Blanca presents an ideal region making it possible to take advantage of the healing properties of the Mediterranean environment due to presence of salt lakes and relatively low humidity. Additionally, the great presence of negative ions in the air of the Costa Blanca region positively affects both mental health and physical comfort.
