Potential egg donors undergo a thorough examination, medical inspection, and even vital social and psychological testing. The interview covers the donor and any of their immediate family member complete medical and psychological histories (questions about alcohol, cigarette, drug use, etc.). A psychiatric evaluation of the donor is conducted to look for any behavioral, emotional, or personality issues that might influence the child.

A fertility specialist then assesses the donor's antral follicle count and renders an appropriate judgment. A stimulation plan is suggested after a physical examination and ultrasound of the pelvic organs to produce high-quality oocytes and guarantee the security of the egg donation procedure.

Additionally, there are several things to take into account for gay couples:

Donor characteristics that are significant to you, such as:

  • Ethnicity
  • Certain likes or dislikes
  • Certain skill sets
  • Level of education

Partner clinics, storages, and our professional staff are always ready to provide a range of egg donation services individually and of the highest quality.

Medical Screening

Ovogene donor egg bank uses artificial intelligence to deliver a variety of high-quality frozen donor eggs, including diagnosis, genetic testing, and ongoing support. Furthermore, we provide Genetically Certified Oocyte® technology for oocyte NGS screening.

What is the goal of this technology?

Reliable oocyte donors and oocyte morphology are fundamental components of effective egg donation programs. Deep neural networks serve to segment photos of donor oocytes, and algorithms obtain information about the morphological features of each oocyte and oocyte donor efficiency from previous cycles.

Senior embryologists select oocytes with specifically good morphological quality, and an active time-delay camera takes live pictures of the oocyte group shortly after.

Following semantic picture identification, the segmentation system is activated, and the morphological calculation on numerous parameters starts. Artificial intelligence-based selection will give security controls for morphological algorithms to stimulate egg production.

Many gay couples pick an option of embryo creation in our laboratory. And after that, origins can easily be transported for further egg retrieval to any clinic worldwide!

Antral Follicle Count (AFC)

Young people between 20 and 28 are preferred to donate eggs. However, not all of them might be appropriate for signing the egg donor contract since we learn a lot once we bring in the initial consultation and find out the number of their antral follicles.

It especially reveals the donor's number of dormant follicles and clearly expresses the possibility of receiving frozen donor eggs.

Some youthful donors do not have a ton of AFC. Therefore, we advise you to look for a person who produces a certain number of donated eggs to increase your chances of getting more viable embryos.
