IN VITRO FERTILIZATION (IVF)
In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) is the most commonly used of the assisted reproductive technologies (ART).
What is IVF?
During IVF, the eggs are collected from the ovaries and fertilised in the laboratory with sperm. After a number of days, the fertilised eggs (embryos) are transferred to the female patient’s womb to develop and grow. In women with certain types of fertility conditions, this significantly increases the chances of falling pregnant.
When is IVF appropriate?
Originally IVF was prescribed for women with blocked fallopian tubes. However, as laboratory techniques have improved drastically over recent years, IVF is also used in the following cases:
- unexplained infertility
- if other treatments such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) have been unsuccessful
- male subfertility (ICSI is recommended in more severe cases of male infertility)

IVF EGG DONORSHIP PROGRAMME
What is IVF egg donation?
This is when a donor's egg is used instead of your own egg to maximise your chances of falling pregnant. This option is generally recommended by Fertility Specialist (FS) in situations where the eggs available in the ovary are non viable. A suitable donor is then chosen by the parents based on a catalogue of variables, such as features.
The donor is given fertility drugs to ensure that egg production during her cycle is optimal. Once the eggs are harvested from the donor, they are fertilised with the male partner’s semen and then the 2 best embryos (fertilised eggs) are transferred back into the female partner. The process is managed with utmost discretion and anonymity is preserved.
What are the benefits or IVF egg donation?
Donor eggs can increase the chance of conception from 15% to a staggering 50%, dependent on the donor's age and/or the quality of her eggs. This could significantly decrease the number of "straight" IVFs you might need to undergo. For women over the age of 40, the chances of conception using an egg donor’s egg/s can be up to approximately 4 times greater than with their own.
How do I know if I need a donor?
