Egg Donation

What you read

In some cases, the causes of infertility can not be addressed by prescribing drugs or advanced methods of treating infertility, and egg donation will be done.

For example, in some women, because of their high age, early menopause and other disorders, despite the fact that fertility organs are healthy, they are deprived of the possibility of fertility due to lack of oocytes. In these people, the only way to fertilize the donation of an ovum is from a volunteer. In the laboratory, the donation oocyte is fertilized by male sperms that receives the oocyte sperm, and the embryo from this fertilization is transferred to the infertile woman’s womb. The first child of the ovule donation in the world was born in 1984, and this method has now been used in our country after legal and legal procedures for many years.

Important points in oocyte donation are the maximum age of an oocyte recipient of 45 years. Of course, the person should be fully aware of the risks of fertility at an advanced age and, after consulting with a specialist and psychiatrist, should do so. – It is necessary that couples who are being treated with oocyte donation methods are advised to take all aspects of this task, including mental, psychological, inheritance, law and other issues, and begin with complete knowledge of the treatment.

Pre-treatment preliminary tests should be performed in full. Male spermogram test, general physical examination, routine pre-pregnancy tests such as rubella, immunological tests, blood group and RH, AIDS, hepatitis, pelvic exam, uterine cavity examination and sonography for measuring uterine volume and, if necessary, hysteroscopy and laparoscopy Some of these experiments are. Meanwhile, the uterus of the oocyte receptor should be ready at the time of action, which requires that the necessary measures be taken beforehand. – The age of the ovary donor is better to be between 21 and 34 years of age, and it is preferable that the person has already had a baby because it increases the odds of pregnancy in the oocyte receptor. – The physical characteristics of the recipient and the oocyte donor should be better coordinated. Features such as skin color, eye color, hair color and body building. – Donor donors should be genetically genetically healthy, as well as for diseases such as syphilis, hepatitis, and AIDS.

The psychological evaluation of an ovum donor by a professional is also highly recommended. This record includes family history, academic record, mental stability, donation motivation, history of severe pregnancy, interpersonal relationships, legal and judicial background, history of psychiatric disorders and personality disorder. Ethical considerations of oocyte donation There has always been a lot of discussion about the oocyte donor, whether the donor or donor person is better known or unknown. Many recipients tend to receive ovules from anonymous donors because they tend to maintain their privacy. But in front of others, they insist on recognizing the donor. For them, the social, cultural, and donor characteristics of the oocyte and its genetic features are of great importance. Another issue is to reveal or hide the issue from the child resulting from this act. In cases where the truth is concealed, there is always the risk that the unwanted truth will be revealed. This is especially important in families where there is no understanding and agreement. However, it is important that the physical and mental health standards are respected by the donors and received from the donor and receptor to prevent future problems of consent.
