Dr Valentina Denisova, Fertility Specialist at International Centre for Reproductive Medicine (ICRM), Russia, discusses IVF with donor egg failure, the reasons, and prospects for successful treatment and birth.
Dr Denisova during her talk explained that egg donation is always a difficult decision for patients, and it gets even more complicated if such an attempt fails. The most common reason for proceeding with egg donation is the advanced maternal age, as the number and quality of oocytes decrease with age. Other reasons for using donated eggs can be Premature Ovarian Failure or poor ovarian reserve after some operation, chemotherapy, genetic diseases, etc. There is a wide group of patients with a low or poor response that could also be candidates for egg donation.
Later on, Dr Denisova talked about egg donors and how are they recruited in Russia. A woman who would like to donate her eggs has to be younger than 35 years old, has to be screened genetically and for infectious diseases, etc.
The last thing that Dr Denisova discussed was why failure in egg donation occurs and what should be investigated after such failure, and explained all possible solutions.- Questions and Answers
