Thanks to our sophisticated donor eggs program, one of the biggest in Europe, we have a unique opportunity to also offer treatment with donor embryos.
Fertility Expert Dr. Tolga TUNA says "Unfortunately, for many women who have healthy eggs, their only option for pregnancy is with egg donation, this proposed method is a procedure for couples of which the woman could not get pregnant with her own eggs due to the male having been diagnosed by a designated reason that they can only have a child with sperm donation.
In this operation, the sperm obtained from sperm bank [ which has seen and completed the obligatory screen tests of the couple’s physical characteristics and has been approved] will be processed and acquired embryo transferred into woman.
Egg and sperm taken from another person or sperm banks, will be fertilized, developed and transferred into expectant mother. For this process, suitable donors are selected in the same way as egg and sperm transfer.
The first step to Embryo Donation, is an informative interview about medical reasons, details of the procedure, law and the process should be realized as in other donation applications. If couples decide on embryo donation after this interview, an evaluation of recipient couple will be done.
After screening tests are realized for recipient female till embryo transfer process, medication is to be used for the female in preparation stage and ultrasound observations will be realized. Date of embryo transfer will be determined in accordance with medical observations of recipient, and will be notified to recipient couple. With embryo transfer, even if the baby genetically will not belong to the couple, female can feel a pregnancy emotion and offers the nicest feeling of giving a birth and breastfeeding a baby that every woman will desire.
