Donor Egg IVF

Recently I came across a couple who was referred to me from Bangalore. They had been married just one year but unfortunately, the wife was diagnosed with severe adenomyosis along with multiple fibroids and other medical conditions. A famous expert surgeon performed laparoscopic myomectomy and bowel repair on her. When she came to consult us, a scan was performed and we noticed that there were severe adhesions, bilateral ovaries were not clear and there was fluid in the cavity. 

In her case natural pregnancy was not possible and egg retrieval for IVF had complications. We explained to the couple the difficulties and problems in egg retrieval and the probabilities of pregnancy with own egg IVF. They understood the medical complexity and happily chose donor egg surrogacy program without hesitation, till now they were in the dark and had not known about these options. This was the choice which opened the door to them for a family way and fulfilled their dream.

Mother's love is unconditional

This is the sad story of a husband and wife with a happy ending. 18years of yearning for a child had been exasperating for this couple. They didn’t leave any stone unturned to get a child of their own. They had tried 8 IUIs and 5 IVFs from two different hospitals, but each attempt was unsuccessful as every time pregnancy resulted in a miscarriage. With each unsuccessful attempt, their despair grew and age was also catching up and both of them were above 50 years old.

Then someone told them about surrogacy and a fresh hope was instilled in them. Their decision to undergo surrogacy with donor egg program bore fruit
when the surrogate gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Their decades of suffering and despair had ended, the mother was so overwhelmed with joy that she couldn’t stop crying for hours. The boon of surrogacy and a positive attitude worked miracles for this wonderful couple. 


Few couples are reluctant to opt for donor eggs, they are under the notion that they will not be able to love the child in the same way as their own child. But in all the scores of donor egg surrogacy cases I have done so far, the mothers never showed any differentiation and were always overjoyed and ecstatic to get the baby. Mother’s love is always unconditional and knows no difference between own egg and donor egg
