What are the Steps of Egg Donation treatment?
The first step occurs when the patient contacts the hospital with a desire to have children but cannot do so due to a problem with either their ovaries or eggs. The first point of contact is a Patients Coordinator, they will learn your IVF history (if applicable) and then arrange a telephone consultation with your chosen doctor.
The next step will then be to have some routine tests carried out, either at our clinic or in your home country. These tests will determine your treatment protocol and preparation can then begin for the cycle.
Following on from this you will then be able to select your donor and be able to learn the weight, eye, hair and skin colours, facial type, education status and hobbies of your donor. All donors remain 100% anonymous.
Once you have selected your donor if necessary we will sync your menstrual cycle with that of your donor’s. During this time both parties are monitored and a detailed check-up and genetic scanning of the donor is repeated. Once the donor is ready her egg collection will take place and the eggs inseminated with the father-to-be’s sperm. Providing all is well embryo transfer will take place 7 days later and the mother-to-be will be free to return home.
12 days after embryo transfer the betaHCG can be checked via a blood test to determine whether pregnancy has occurred, the patient is free to do this in their own country or to remain in Cyprus to learn the result.
