The Embryo adoption is a proven, successful process allowing families desiring to experience pregnancy and childbirth (single parents or married couples) to adopt remaining embryos from patients who have performed a successful IVF treatment at our clinic and donated surplus embryos to other future families.
Embryos are created during the process of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). In order to reduce the possibility of multiple pregnancies, excess embryos are cryopreserved for future use.
At our embryo storage we have more than 1000 cryopreserved embryos ready to be booked immediately. In 2016 we reached 60% clinical pregnancy rate with donated embryos with patients over 40 years old! In accordance with the newest research, the success rate of frozen embryo transfer cycles is nearly the same as fresh IVF cycles.
What is Embryo Adoption program?
The embryo adoption process is otherwise similar to oocyte/egg donation. Our medical coordinators ask recipient parent\parents to compile the Patient form in order to plan an individualized stimulation protocol and perform the necessary medical examinations before we perform the embryo transfer procedure.
Intended parent\parents describe what they are looking for in an embryo, which allows us to match available embryos with recipient couples. Patients write the main criteria that they would like for the future baby to have:
- blood type;
- eyes color;
- hair color.
Once a match is made, the cycle usually proceeds quickly.
There is a possibility to come only once for the embryo transfer procedure or patients can come twice:
- first visit – initial consultation and full check up (patient can perform all tests and examinations at our clinic for 430 euro within 1-2 days).
- second visit – embryo transfer procedure (patient should arrive one day before the planned procedure and stay for 3 days in total).
We can transfer 1 or 2 embryos per cycle, it`s up to the patient and the medical team to decide together which choice will be better in that particular case.
