Donor Treatment


Starting your own family sometimes is challenging. Despite trying to conceive in natural form, there are couples who still fail and choose IVF for family progression. However, there are couples who still want to consider donor treatment by using donor eggs or donor embryos for donor pregnancy. There are certain cases where patients embark on treatment using eggs or sperm donated either by their relatives or anonymous person. 

Vatsalya offers several options to them from the moderate level of intervention before proceeding with further treatment. 

Overview of Donor Treatment

Infertility clinics in Nepal offer a wide range of fertility treatment ranked in order of complexity. The donor treatments range from the simplest donor insemination (DI) or Intra-Uterine Insemination (IUI). Likewise, if the simple donor treatment fails, highly medicated In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) with egg donation, Intra-Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), egg sharing, or embryo donation is practiced.

Types of Donors 

Anonymous donors

Where the information of donors and recipient are kept hidden.

Family donors

Where the family members or relatives donate their sperm or eggs to the receivers for pregnancy. 

Egg-share donors

Few clinics offer younger women the option to donate some of their eggs for fertility treatment.

Donated embryos

These are the frozen embryos that are produced plenty during one cycle of treatment. 

Altruistic donors

The eggs get extracted from those women who have not taken any infertility treatment. 

Forms of Donor Treatment in Nepal

  • IVF donor treatment is a method where a woman gets a chance to conceive to proceed with a family. The process is similar to IVF treatment, except the eggs are used from the donor. IVF donation gets suggested to the couple who have repeatedly faced failure in natural IVF treatment. 
  • The donor IVF process involves a fertility expert removing an egg from the donor’s reserve and fertilizing them in a laboratory and then transferring the composition inside the receiver’s uterus.
  • Egg success rates over 40 years female in the IVF program is nearly 52% while the donor IVF success rates with clinical pregnancy are almost 42%. 
  • Intrauterine insemination - donor insemination is used on artificial insemination for single mothers. The sperm is collected either from a known or unknown donor or from a sperm bank. The IUI donor process gets recommended to a female same-sex couple where the treatment involves placing sperm inside a woman uterus to facilitate fertilization. IUI aims to increase the number of sperms that reaches the fallopian tubes and increase the chances of fertilization.  The donor insemination success rate in women under 40 years of age is about 10-15 percent per cycle.
  • Cycle Monitoring - It allows the fertility expert to figure out the ovulating period and inseminate time to increase the chance of pregnancy. The cycle monitoring takes place during the first half of the menstrual cycle to keep account of the development of ovarian follicles. 

Recommendation for donor treatment

Several reasons may exist where the patients may get advised to take up donor treatment. The treatment is suggested to people of:

  • Advanced maternal age
  • Premature ovarian failure
  • Low egg quality
  • Age-related fertility
  • Premature menopause
  • Infertility caused due to high radiation of chemotherapy.
  • Couple with high hereditary or genetic situation.
  • Same-sex couple

Risk of donor treatment

During the donor pregnancy, the receiver faces similar kinds of issues like traditional-conventional IVF or IUI. The fertility drugs taken to treat the ovaries comes with specific side effects such as vomiting, severe abdominal pain, allergies, weight gain, mood change, or heavy breathing.

Before taking the donor treatment, it is essential to speak with a fertility counselor. For the intended mother, the primary risk associated with donor egg IVF or IUI is conceiving with multiple pregnancies.
