Egg Donation at New Life Georgia
Selecting an Egg Donor is one of the most emotional parts of your journey to parenthood. You want to make sure you are giving your baby the best start in life possible. Part of that may mean choosing a suitable Donor that meets your established needs and criteria as well. Many parents-to-be emphasize the importance of previous donation history, while others are more concerned with the Donor’s education level, physical appearance, ethnicity and age. To make selection easier and more efficient, New Life grants every parent-to-be access to Donor profiles, which give detailed information about the Donor’s donation history, family, medical history, education, current occupation and more.
New Life has established Egg Donor Agencies in countries throughout the world, resulting in our large, comprehensive Egg Donor database that includes Donors from locations such as Georgia, Ukraine, Poland, South Africa, Thailand, China, Mexico and India. Because we have such a broad array of Donors, we offer a Travelling Egg Donor package for our parents-to-be looking for a wider range of options. The package is intended to cover the costs of accommodations, such as flights, food and transportation expenses.
At your request, we are happy to arrange a meeting or skype call between you and Egg Donor candidates before you make a final decision.
Once you have been granted access to the database, you will be able to review all of our available Egg Donors to choose the one that best fits the needs of your family. From there, we will approve your candidate, sign contract agreements and move forward with necessary screening, which includes the following:
- Anti Mullerian Hormone (AMH)
- Blood Group and Rhesus (In case an emergency blood transfusion is required.)
- Complete Blood Count/Hemoglobin (CBC/hb)
- Estradiol Level (Measured on day 2 or 3 of monthly cycle.)
- Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH/CD2-4; Tests for ovarian reserve, Donors must be measured on days 2 – 4 of menses.)
- Hepatitis B (HbsAg)
- Hepatitis C (HCV)
- Herpes Virus
- Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
- Luteinizing Hormone (LH/CD2-4; Donor must be measured on days 2 – 4 of menses.)
- Pelvic Ultrasound for Antral Follicle Count (Days 3 – 5 of menses.)
- Prolactin (Measures the level of the hormone prolactin produced by the pituitary gland. High levels can indicate infertility.)
- Syphillis (VDRL)
- Thyroid Stimulating Hormone/Thyroid Function Test (TSH )
- Vaginal Swab Tests for Chlamydia (To rule out any infection that may flare up during or after retrieval.)
This screening is standard, but parents-to-be are welcome to request additional screening requirements at their own expense. Once your Egg Donor successfully completes all necessary screening and they are approved to join your program, we will begin stimulation matching with your preferred calendar dates. If, for any reason, the Donor fails to pass the screening, you will be permitted to choose another Donor from our database. We will perform this same screening for the new Donor without any additional incurred costs to you, the parent-to-be.
For the stimulation we use short antagonist protocols that may last anywhere from 10 to 14 days, depending on follicle growth. Stimulation injections used include: Gonal F, Menopure, Cetrotyde and Ovitrel as a final ovulation trigger. During this process, and every step of the way, we make sure our Donors are safe, comfortable and respected.
New Life’s Donors
Because we value each of our Egg Donors and their willingness to gift the miracle of life to our parents-to-be, we strive to maintain a positive and friendly environment that nurtures and protects each party involved. Our Donors are treated with the utmost respect at all times, with our team striving to take care of them and promote their well-being at every step of the process. Every Donor is compensated transparently as a way to show we value them and their time. They will never be expected to wait in reception areas and we go above and beyond to ensure they are safe and comfortable. That is how we have achieved such exceptionally high satisfaction level among our highly responsible egg donors and surrogate mothers.
Important Information for Parents-to-Be
On extremely rare occasions, a Donor may not respond well to stimulation. If her follicles do not grow ideally to achieve a successful pregnancy, we will inform you immediately to discuss ending the stimulation with that Donor. Do not let this deter you from making your dream of parenthood a reality. Also its important to know, that number of eggs cannot be guaranteed and even if the egg donor has previous good donation history this is still not the assurance that her following donation would have the same results
Stimulation terminations or empty follicles are particularly rare, with less than one case a year. We have completed over 11,000 successful IVF programs that resulted in happy endings and healthy babies for parents-to-be. We only keep you informed about all possibilities because, at New Life, we strongly believe in establishing realistic expectations to keep your journey as smooth and stress-free as possible. We will do everything we can to meet your expectations and keep you informed every step of your journey with potential scenarios and your opportunities in the program to make your dream a reality.
