Egg Donation in Iran

 

Egg donation is allowed by law in Iran and international couples can benefit from fertility treatment with reasonable prices through Iranian Surgery. All of our donors are Iranian and we can help you find persian egg donors with skin tone, eye color and other criteria similar to yourself so that your baby will look like you.



What are donor eggs?

Couples that have female infertility issues can use donor eggs. If a woman is infertile or unable to use her own eggs to get pregnant due to multiple reasons, an egg donor can help provide the eggs. You can carry the resulting embryos in your own uterus for 9 months or use a surrogate mother if unable. In both cases you will still be the biological mother of the baby. The egg donor would be the genetic mother but her job is done the moment the eggs are retrieved from her ovaries. The surrogate mother will have no blood relation with your baby and just helps carry the child for 9 months. Your baby is still going to look like you since your donor has a similar appearance to yourself, and half of the baby’s genes come from the intended father.




Who can be a candidate for donor eggs?

Women who:

  • Had their ovaries removed or were born without ovaries
  • Have premature ovarian failure 
  • Are postmenopausal
  • Had early menopause
  • Have a history of recurrent pregnancy loss
  • Have a history of multiple failed IVF cycles
  • Are poor responders to ovarian stimulation drugs
  • Have been affected by cancer
  • Who have undergone surgery or treatments that has affected their fertility





Are donor eggs fresh or frozen?

There are multiple ways you can use donor eggs. Your personal specialist at the Iranian Surgery fertility center will observe your situation and issues with your reproductive health, then recommend whether to use fresh eggs or frozen eggs in order to achieve the best possible results. 

Below are the average success rates of using donor eggs in different ways:

  • Fresh eggs fresh embryo transfer — 49.5%
  • Frozen eggs fresh embryo transfer — 44.1%
  • Frozen embryo transfer using donor eggs — 44.5%



Can donor eggs be used with donor sperm?

If your male partner has a genetic condition that can be passed on to your child, or if your partner has low sperm count, you may use donor sperm with donor eggs. You just need to make sure the country you’re undergoing fertility treatment in, allows double donation. Or you could use donor embryos. Couples who have undergone fertility treatment in the past and no longer wish to use their remaining frozen embryos, can donate their embryos to other couples who also wish to become parents. The Iranian Surgery medical team will help you figure out what method suits you best in order to successfully achieve your wish.




What are the requirements from the egg donors?

The egg donors at the Iranian Surgery fertility center undergo extensive screening before they can become a qualified donor. Below are the usual criteria they are tested by:

  • Aged between 20 and 30
  • Physical and mental health 
  • No history of genetic disorders 
  • Non-smokers
  • No use of alcohol 
  • Healthy lifestyle
  • Balanced diet
  • Exercising regularly
  • Regular menstrual cycles
  • BMI between 18 and 26




How does egg donation work?

After the donors are deemed to have all the qualifications, the Iranian Surgery fertility specialists will prescribe ovarian stimulation medication for them. This allows for more eggs to grow and become mature. Donors will get injections once or twice a day for about 2 weeks, and at the same time ultrasounds are used to observe the growth of the eggs. When the time comes, the donor will be under anesthesia while the doctor uses an ultrasound scanner to retrieve eggs with a thin needle through the wall of the uterus into the follicles that contain the eggs. After that the eggs will be used fresh or frozen in IVF/ ICSI for fertility treatment.



How long is the egg donation process?

In total the egg donation process takes about over a month. After finding a suitable donor, 2 weeks for screening and 2 weeks for the egg retrieval procedure is required.

 

What are the success rates of egg donation?

The chance that a fertilized donor egg properly develops into an embryo is about 80%. The success rate of these embryos implanting  successfully in the uterus is 75 – 85%. And the chance of clinical pregnancy is 55 – 65%. 




What are the drawbacks and benefits of egg donation for donors?

Pros:

  • Monetary compensation
  • Free health testing, genetic screening, consultation
  • Making sure you’re fertile and can have children
  • Psychological satisfaction of the donor – you can help other people achieve their wish
  • Quick and easy application process



Cons:

  • Time – it takes around 4 weeks with multiple visits to the clinic
  • Possible side effects during undergoing hormonal treatment and egg retrieval 
  • Higher chances of unexpected pregnancy due to ovarian stimulation
  • Society, moral and cultural issues – some people can judge this decision as a bad one
  • It’s not a job – there is a limit for how many times you can donate

 

How to prepare for egg retrieval as a donor?

In order to donate eggs with a good quality and quantity, maintain a healthy lifestyle, eat balanced meals, refrain from smoking, and exercise regularly. Taking care of yourself and being ready until you are matched with a couple is of high importance.

 

How to prepare for the egg donation process as the recipient?

In order to increase the success rate, your doctor will order some tests to identify any correctable abnormalities that can interfere with the fertilization or implantation process. These tests include an ultrasound sonography to detect uterine abnormalities, basic blood tests, and a detailed analysis of the semen that is going to be used.



Recovery after egg retrieval as the donor

Donors can return to their usual activities the day after the egg retrieval. However, it is recommended to refrain from intercourse and high impact activities as the ovaries are recovering. 



What are the risks of egg donation for the donors?

The most serious risk is ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), which happens due to taking ovarian stimulation drugs. However, the chances of experiencing this issue is very low. Doctors also observe the situation of the body throughout the donation process in order to prevent OHSS from happening to a patient.

 

Other mild side effects after egg retrieval include:

  • Pain and cramping of the abdomen
  • Spotting or bleeding
  • Bloating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Headache
  • Rapid weight gain

faq

Yes, Iran is the leading country in the region for offering quality fertility treatment services with a high success rate. Iran has done a large number of research in this field. As the only Muslim country in the world offering egg donation and IVF, Muslim couples can also travel for treatment with ease of mind.
Because of the culture of Iran, our donors prefer that their information remain confidential. We always only use high-quality fresh eggs since freezing eggs can slightly lower the quality. Every donor can only donate twice, with a gap of at least six months in between. Therefore, the donors that are currently available might not be available anymore by the time you come to Iran for your treatment. Also, since the human body is ever-changing, the donor’s health state might change, and she might not be in the best window of egg retrieval anymore. We consider many factors to reach the best possible result. The screening process for donors is rigorous, and they go through many tests legally, physically, psychologically, genetically, etc., which are done by specialized doctors in the field.
The Iranian Surgery team can help you with your visa application. By getting a medical visa, patients can travel to Iran alone or with someone else to accompany them during their treatment. In any case, the Iranian Surgery support team will be there to support international patients throughout the entire course of their treatment.
There are different options available for accommodation. Depending on your situation and preference, you could stay in a hotel with good qualities or an apartment hotel. As you will be using donor eggs, you need to stay in Iran for about two weeks.
You can send us your medical documents in English or Arabic; if necessary, Iranian Surgery will translate them into Farsi for you. Test reports are usually in the abbreviated language of medical tests, and specialists from all countries can understand them. However, if, for example, the description of your sonography is in a language other than English or Arabic, it would be better to translate it into one of these two languages and then send your reports to us.
Yes, many of our doctors are fluent in English and sometimes Arabic. However, in any case, the Iranian Surgery team will accompany you throughout your treatment.
