Methods of infertility treatment

IVF using donor eggs

Donated eggs from a suitable anonymous donor are fertilised with sperm provided by the patient’s partner. IVF using donated eggs gives women who can’t conceive using their own eggs a chance to have their own baby.

Why Europe IVF?

Paragraph item #1 icon

Our pregnancy success rate is as high as 68%

The chances of pregnancy with IVF using donated eggs depend on a number of factors. These are the woman's age, physical and mental health, whether she is overweight or not and the quality of her partner’s sperm.

Paragraph item #2 icon

We won't keep you waiting

We completely understand your situation and we want to help you solve things right away. The whole process takes place within 1 -2 months.  Everything is planned so that you have the exact dates of treatment in advance, including the exact day of egg retrieval from your donor.

Paragraph item #3 icon

We have a top-rate donation programme

All our donors are young and healthy women. The donation programme is voluntary and anonymous, and, by law, a child born this way has no right to learn the identity of the egg donor even after reaching the age of 18.

Paragraph item #4 icon

Professional care and a human approach

The size of the clinic allows our medical specialists to approach each patient individually and guide couples through the treatment process or IVF, right through to pregnancy.

Course of treatment - Treatment block icon

Course of treatment

Egg donation is legal in the Czech Republic and subject to strict control. Our donors are young women aged from 18-32. All donors undergo thorough medical examinations to assess their physical and mental health.

A suitable donor will be selected by our doctors on the basis of the questionnaire you completed. You will receive non-identifying information about the donor while preserving her anonymity (age, appearance, interests, blood type)

Egg donors are compensated for accrued expenses associated with egg donation.

Optimally, the whole process from the initial consultation to a positive test takes about 2 months.


Preparatory phase

Number 1
Selecting a suitable egg donor
  • First you will be asked to fill out a form (donor typing), where you will specify your requirements regarding the donor’s appearance.
  • We will ask you to provide us with your photo or, with your permission, we will take a photo of you at the clinic.
  • We will look for a suitable egg donor based on your requirements.
  • You will be informed as soon as a suitable egg donor has been found.
Synchronisation of the donor’s and recipient’s cycles
  • Your menstrual cycle will be synchronised with the donor’s cycle (usually using contraceptives), so that the endometrium is ready to receive the embryos in the optimally timed period.
Preparing the uterine lining (endometrium)
  • The uterine lining (endometrium) needs to be thick enough for an embryo to implant successfully.
  • As a rule, you will start taking pills containing female hormones (oestrogens) on the 1st day of your menstrual cycle.
  • The doctor will recommend an ultrasound to assess the thickness of the endometrium on the 10-12th day of your menstrual cycle (at the clinic or by your gynaecologist).
  • We will discuss the results of the scan (by phone or e-mail).
  • We will confirm the planned day of egg retrieval from the donor.
DAY 1 - 5

Embryo transfer

Number 2
Day of egg retrieval from the donor
  • Your partner will come to the clinic on the day of egg retrieval to provide a sperm sample. Or, as agreed, we will use your partner‘s previously frozen sperm sample.
  • We use the ICSI method of directly injecting sperm into the egg for fertilisation.
  • On the day of egg retrieval from the donor, you will start taking another female hormone (progestogen).
Embryo culture
  • Following fertilisation, the embryos will begin to divide and grow.
  • Embryos can be cultured in the laboratory for up to 120 hours (5 days), after which they must be transferred into the uterus or frozen.
  • The embryologist will determine the best time for embryo transfer based on the number, development and quality of the embryos.
  • Surplus good quality embryos will be frozen for possible further use.
Embryo transfer
  • The transfer of the embryo or embryos into the uterus is performed without anaesthesia using a thin flexible catheter (tube), the end of which is guided by ultrasound for precise placement.
  • The transfer is completely painless.
  • The embryos are injected into the uterine cavity with a small amount of liquid (culture medium).
  • You will then rest in bed for about 10-15 minutes and will then be discharged from the clinic.
DAY 6 - 19

After transfer

Number 3
Regimen after transfer
  • Rest is recommended for 1-2 weeks after embryo transfer (no strenuous physical activity, sexual intercourse, or hot baths).
  • You can go back to your normal routine after 1-2 weeks, but we still recommend avoiding strenuous physical activity.
  • Take your medication regularly as indicated in the discharge report.
Pregnancy test, medication and monitoring pregnancy
  • Have a pregnancy blood test 14 days after embryo transfer and let us know the result.
  • If the pregnancy test is positive, continue to take the prescribed medication until the 12th week of pregnancy and make an appointment for an ultrasound (in approximately 10-14 days) with your doctor.
  • After the 12th week of pregnancy, gradually taper and discontinue the medication as recommended by your doctor.
  • Standard prenatal screening also takes place, together with a check-up at your gynaecologist´s.
  • If the pregnancy test is negative, stop all medication and contact us. We will discuss the next steps with you and plan for the transfer of your frozen embryos.
