Donor egg (oocyte) treatment

The reason for using donated oocytes (DO) is, for example, premature ovarian failure, status post ovary removal, status post radiotherapy or chemotherapy, the risk of transmission of a genetic disorder to an offspring, recurrent spontaneous miscarriage, poor own oocytes and repeated IVF-ET failures.

Egg donation in the Czech Republic is allowed by law, but is strictly anonymous. Likewise, in the case of donor sperm, we can reveal only the non-identifying information about the donor, e.g. age, blood type, eye and hair colour, height, etc. Those are the characteristics that we can reveal.

Treatment using donor eggs is a more complicated and more expensive process than treatment using donor sperm because the donor undergoes the burden of hormonal stimulation and egg retrieval under general anaesthesia.

The oocyte (egg) is a large delicate cell located in the middle of division. In such a cell, there is a greater risk of damage due to freezing, and therefore we prefer to use "fresh" eggs.

During treatment, it is necessary to synchronize menstrual cycles of the donor and recipient. The retrieved oocytes are immediately fertilized with sperm from the recipient’s partner. Resulting embryos are cultured and then transferred into the uterus of the recipient at the time when her endometrium is ideally prepared for embryo implantation. For the recipient, this means using the medication to synchronize the cycle (mostly contraception), and then oestrogens and progestogens (mostly in the form of tablets and vaginal capsules). In principle, the treatment resembles FET with HRT, but it is a "fresh" embryo that is being transferred.

Today, such freezing methods and media have been developed that even oocytes can be successfully freezed. We use this procedure when we do not have sperm for fertilization.

Oocyte donor must meet strict criteria, namely: perfect health and the age under 35; they also have to undergo genetic testing and screening for sexually transmitted diseases. Hormonal examination and the test of ovarian reserve must be carried out to make sure that the donated eggs have required quality. The donor receives financial compensation for costs associated with donation.

The success rate of treatment using donor oocytes is high, more than 50 % per embryotransfer.

Vážený pane doktore Šulci,

Chtěli bychom se touto cestou vrátit zpátky k péči, které se nám dostávalo od Vás a Vašich kolegů z GESTu od cca května loňského roku a které se nám dostává stále v průběhu prozatím dobře se vyvíjejícího těhotenství.

Vám bychom chtěli moc poděkovat mj. také za Váš přístup k nám, díky kterému jsme se i v ne vždy pozitivně vyhlížející situaci cítili tak, že je o nás postaráno a že je tady někdo, na koho se můžeme obrátit pro pomoc a radu. Moc si toho vážíme, protože nám to jednak pomohlo a také jsme si vědomi toho, že to v dnešní době bohužel stále není standard.

 Ještě jednou moc děkujeme



Finaly even me can boast with joyfull news. On 10th February 2020 was born gorgeous girl Michalka (3650 g, 51 cm). She arrived 10 days after predicted date of birth. We, happy parents, want to thank to the whole Gest team for the longwished happiness. Markéta and Lukáš



Finally can we show off our babyboy Michal. He was born on 24.12.2019, his weight was 2720g and was 48 cm long. Michal came into this world little bit earlier - at 37th week. 
Thanks a lot to the whole team - finally we have our little treasure.
