What Is Oocyte Donation?

For women whose eggs are not healthy or resilient enough to achieve a pregnancy, an oocyte donation programme may be a recommended path to conception. On Cloudnine, our superior third-party reproduction programme matches you with healthy, fertile and young donors who exhibit similar physical characteristics and features to you. The oocyte donation programme never exposes you to potential donors, ensuring an enduring wall of anonymity and confidentiality for both parties. A recommended donor is screened for infections like HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and syphilis at the very outset.

Why Choose Oocyte Donation?

Oocyte donation on Cloudnine is a skilfully tailored programme that connects you with donors who are healthy and young, with a proven fertility record.

Is Oocyte Donation Right for Me?

An oocyte donation programme is particularly suited for older women, women with premature ovarian failure, a genetic predisposition or repeated failed in vitro fertilisation (IVF) cycles owing to subpar eggs. That said, oocyte donation is pointed at a broad spectrum of subfertile and infertile women, and may be recommended to you if traditional interventions are unsuccessful. On Cloudnine, our oocyte donation programmes are strictly aligned with the guidelines laid out by the Indian Council of Medical Research. In light of this, a donor and a recipient remain anonymous to each other through the programme and beyond. Also, at the outset, an egg donor and her husband are mandatorily asked to sign a contract-cum-consent form with Cloudnine. Consequently, the donor and her husband lose all rights over donated eggs as well as any resultant children produced thereafter.

What Are the Steps of Oocyte Donation?

Cloudnine partners with a network of assisted reproductive technology banks for its oocyte donation programme. The oocyte donation programme follows the steps outlined below.

  • 1Donor Selection

    Once you opt for an oocyte donation programme, your doctor will specially select a donor who matches your clinical and physical attributes.

  • 2Donor Selection

    Your potential donor's fertility potential is evaluated based on scans and blood investigations. These tests help to rule out the possibility of medical conditions and infections.

  • 3Ovulation Induction

    Upon exhibiting adequate fertility potential, your anonymous donor is administered daily injections to induce ovulation.

  • 4Uterus Preparation

    While your donor prepares to release eggs, your uterus is readied for embryo transfer through a course of medications aimed at building the uterine lining.

  • 5Fertilisation

    As a final step, your donor's eggs are collected and artificially inseminated with your husband's sperm. Embryos produced in the laboratory through this process are then transferred to your uterus.

What Are the Risks of Oocyte Donation?

Oocyte donation is a plain-sailing process that seldom results in by-products or symptoms.

Oocyte donation

Egg donation is the term used when one woman donates her eggs, to be implanted in another woman as part of an assisted reproduction procedure. The egg donor may be related or unrelated to the recipient. Once the donor has agreed to donate eggs, the eggs are retrieved from her ovaries through an ultrasound assisted surgical procedure.
