Treatment Options: Donor Eggs

The initial report of a pregnancy in a woman with no fertilizable eggs (within her ovaries) occurred in 1983. This technique took advantage of the understanding that embryos entering the uterine cavity following fertilization in the fallopian tube do not adhere to the endometrium (remain unattached to the lining of the uterus) for a few days. The procedure described involved insemination of the egg donor with the sperm of the egg recipient's husband and subsequent uterine lavage (to flush out the preimplantation embryo) with embryo transfer (of the retrieved embryo) into the recipient's (synchronized) uterine cavity. Major potential problems with this technique involve the possibility of implantation (of the pregnancy achieved with sperm from the intended recipient's husband) into the uterus (pregnancy) of the egg donor, infection in the egg donor from either the sperm of the recipient's husband or the uterine lavage procedure, and the moral implications of removing an embryo from one woman and transferring it into another woman's uterus.

More recently, In Vitro Fertilization has been used for egg donation. An egg donor typically undergoes controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (using protocols similar to any other IVF patient) and transvaginal ultrasound guided egg retrieval, the mature eggs retrieved are transferred to the embryology laboratory where they are inseminated in culture ("in vitro") with the egg recipient's sperm, and subsequently the fertilized eggs are transferred into the synchronized uterus of the egg recipient.

Donor egg IVF is highly complex since it requires synchronization of (donor) egg development with (recipient) uterine maturation. The psychological (social, ethical, personal, religious, legal) issues involved should be discussed with both the egg donor and egg recipient prior to initiating a cycle. Professional psychological counseling for both the egg donor and egg recipient is suggested to assure a reasonable level of preparation for the procedure.

Couples for whom egg donation may be appropriate include those where the woman has undergone ovarian failure (premature ovarian failure, menopause, following chemotherapy or radiation therapy for malignancy, after surgical removal of the ovaries) or has a severe reduction in ovarian reserve and requires IVF (for fertility), the couple has had repeated failed IVF cycles due to poor embryo quality, or there is a possibility of a significant genetic disorder that is not able to be excluded with preimplantation genetic diagnosis.
