Embryo Donation

About Treatment

It is a treatment method applied in cases where the reproductive cells of both mother and father-to-be are insufficient or absent due to various reasons. Reproductive cells taken from young and healthy individuals suitable for the family are combined with the microinjection method and transferred to the mother.

What is the embryo donation treatment process?

In order to perform embryo donation, a donor who will match the blood group and physical characteristics of the parents is sought. As for eggs, since the success rates of frozen eggs are lower than fresh eggs, they always prepare fresh eggs.

When the expectant mother begins treatment, the menstrual cycle of the expectant mother is first examined. If our patient does not menstruate, she is prepared for treatment with the program determined for the preparation of the uterus with menstrual-regulating drugs. This process takes about 14-18 days. During this process, the patient may be asked to be examined on certain days in order to evaluate the uterine response of the patient, and the drug program can be changed according to the results. If the mother no longer menstruates due to reasons such as menopause, the mother can also start treatment directly on the day the donor will start treatment.

In embryo donation, approximately 10-12 days after the start of the treatment at the fertilization stage, the developed eggs are collected from the donor and fertilized with the sperm cell specially brought to the father-to-be from the sperm bank on the same day. On the last day of the fertilized embryos for 5 days, they are transferred to the mother's uterus painlessly under ultrasound guidance. 12 days after the embryo transfer, the pregnancy result is learned by looking at signs of pregnancy in the blood.

To whom do we recommend Embryo Donation?
  • For those who are older,
  • For those going through early menopause,
  • For couples who cannot use their reproductive cells for many reasons such as hereditary diseases or who do not have reproductive cells

  • How is the Selection of Individuals to Donate Embryos Made?

    Donor selection is a very sensitive issue in our center. In line with the information we will receive from you, we choose the most suitable donor for each family. Donors are selected as similar as possible to the recipient couples in terms of blood groups, ethnic origins and external appearance characteristics. Confidentiality is essential during the treatment and personal information about the donor is not given to the mother and father, while the donor is not given any information about the mother and father. The criteria we consider before including donors in our treatment protocol are summarized below;

  • Must be between the ages of 20-29
  • No problems with necessary blood tests, including serological, infectious diseases and chromosome analysis
  • Preferably having a previous healthy birth
  • No family history of any genetic or physical disease
  • Book your first appointment at Lefkosa Sevinc Hospital - Nicosia IVF Center

    Patients thoughts

    We met one year ago with Dr. MEK. I have seen too many doctors before. But years later, he became both a doctor and a father to us. I thank God first and then our doctor. Thanks to him and his team, I had 2 babies. I believe that he is the best doctor in Northern Cyprus.

    Thank you very much, my dear doctor Mehmet and his valuable team, for giving hope to my despair. You gave me this joy at the age of 53. Many expectant mothers like me should not lose hope. I wish that many families who are longing for a baby will meet you and be happy.

    It was obvious from the approach of the staff before the treatment that the result would be positive. The sensitivity and knowledge of all staff made me feel good and my motivation increased. I had twin babies. Thank you to everyone who contributed.
