Using a donor egg for IVF is a delicate process with many steps and no guarantee of success. Specifically, there’s no way to be sure whether a given donor egg will be successful in producing a live, healthy child at the end of the process. Egg donation data can give us an idea of how likely success might be, however. The average rate for egg donations resulting in a live birth is around 50%. Each stage of the process also has its own success rates: the chance of a fertilized donor egg producing properly developing embryos is about 80%, the chance that those embryos will implant correctly in a uterus is about 75-85%, and the chance of clinical pregnancy is about 55-65%.
While medical science has continued to research and innovate to improve egg donor IVF success rates, there are still many things we can’t predict or control. Various genetic, physical, and chemical factors can affect the quality of an egg, but those aren’t easy to assess. Sometimes, a donor’s eggs may be considered of good quality if she’s successfully had children before. Or, if she is young and has a good number of follicles of a good AMh test. Numerous environmental factors can also affect the chances of success, such as the health of the recipient, the quality of the sperm and the competence of the treating IVF facility.
It’s important to note that success rates can also differ significantly between IVF clinics. Clinics with higher rates of success may have more experience, better equipment, and better methods for success (though there may be other factors, like access to a younger, healthier population). Whatever the case, prospective parents should be aware that the clinic can make a difference when it comes to the outcome of a donor egg.
Conceiving through a donor egg largely depends on the age of the woman. A person can use their eggs until the age of 45.
With donor eggs up to the age of 42, the probability of pregnancy reaches 50%, and between 43-45, the chance of pregnancy is between 30-45%. But after the age of 50, the chance of pregnancy, even with a donor egg, is very low, but possible. Therefore, clinics do not recommend the use of donor eggs for people over 55 years old.
When people talk about IVF, they’re usually talking about non-donor situations in which a woman provides her own eggs. In this context, IVF success rates are affected by genetic and physical factors related to using one’s own eggs. Donation success rates differ in that any negative factors that may have affected a woman’s own eggs are eliminated by using a donor. This is why egg donor success rates are typically higher than standard IVF rates.
