After undergoing one or more fertility treatments without achieving pregnancy, would you consider donating oocytes? Many couples have doubts about this treatment, mainly because they need to deal with a strong emotional impact. However, this may be the best alternative to fulfilling your desire to have a baby.
It is not an easy decision. Although adoption is a possibility, it is understandable that people want to experience pregnancy and childbirth themselves. But feeling guilty about not being able to have children is a crisis that shatters the hopes of many couples, especially when they have already made several attempts at assisted reproduction using their own oocytes and it did not work.
The specialists in our assisted reproduction clinic have experience in couples with previous treatments and we can tell you that a viable option in these cases is In Vitro fertilization with donor oocytes. Of course, it is always important to consult an expert.
Diseases that contraindicate ovarian stimulation
Ovodonation is increasingly common, especially among women over 40. In fact, this technique has a high success rate (between 50% and 70% in one attempt).
Many patients are concerned that their baby will not look like them physically, preventing them from identifying with them, their partner, and their family. In this aspect, at the assisted reproduction clinic we always look for the donor to have physical similarities with the recipient.
The patients (both women and men) also feel anxious to know if they will be able to love and care for the baby as if it were theirs biologically. Various studies have shown that the baby can look very much like its parents, as the chosen donor has physical characteristics very similar to the recipient mother, as well as being very similar to its parents because it observes, learns and imitates their behaviour and conduct from a very young age.
In reality, the answer lies in the attachment and bonding generated between parents and children. When a couple has the illusion of forming a family, egg donation is not an obstacle to loving their baby.
Once the decision is made to resort to ovodonation, we perform a series of medical procedures that include
Two weeks after the In Vitro fertilization, we perform a pregnancy test. Some patients have mixed feelings at this stage, believing they will not be able to make it. That is why we provide emotional support before and during the treatment, in addition to having advanced technological equipment that allows us to increase the success of the treatment.
