Donor Embryo IVF or Embryo Adoption IVF

Over the years, thousands of couples from all around the world have shared with me their heart aching stories of loss, pain and suffering over not being able to use their own reproductive cells (eggs and sperm) to become the mothers and fathers they so desperately want to be. Since traditional adoption (domestic or international) is very hard, expensive and lengthy with absolutely no guarantees, lots of couples are exploring the options of donor embryo IVF, also known as embryo adoption IVF abroad. This fertility treatment gives them not only hope but options as well with the added benefit of experiencing pregnancy.

Our donor embryos are NOT surplus embryos of other infertile couples!

Instead, only tested young men and women’s donated eggs and sperm are used for donor embryo IVF. So what are your options for Embryo adoption IVF?

1. Fresh donor embryos

Female egg donor is matched to you and her cycle is synchronized with yours. Her retrieved eggs are fertilized with donor sperm of your selection. This treatment is the same as our Donor Egg IVF but using donor sperm and not your partner’s. Donor sperm can come from our IVF Clinic’s extensive sperm bank or we can assist you with importing it from a different sperm cryobank. Benefit of going through fresh embryo donation IVF is that you have the opportunity to select the sperm and egg donor to match you and your partner as close as possible. Also, using fresh donor eggs yields a higher IVF pregnancy success rate; you also have a great chance of having surplus embryos from this donor embryo IVF and they can be frozen and stored for future siblings.

2. Frozen donor embryos

Eggs and sperm from healthy and tested donors are used to create embryos. Only the strongest and healthiest ones are frozen on day 5 or 6 at blastocyst stage. Usually, patients get 2 embryos for a single transfer (additional embryos can be arranged as well). Matching of donor embryos is rather limited in this fertility treatment as the embryos for adoption are already created.

My IVF Alternative success rates for donor egg IVF treatments in the Czech Republic.

Currently, the fertility clinic can help up to 90% of infertile couples (this is a total number of patients that have applied for their IVF treatment and achieved pregnancy at this fertility clinic).

In comparison with the available results of the effectiveness of infertility treatments in Europe, our fertility clinic is way above average and among the leaders in their field (source:
The Czech fertility clinic performs close to 3000 IVF cycles a year. Out of this impressive total number of embryo transfers, in 2012, 457 were donor embryo IVF embryo transfers
with a success rate of 45% (hCG pregnancy success rate).

Since we have had the privilege of working with the IVF Clinic since its foundation in 2006, we have assisted many couples in need of embryo adoption IVF; we could keep records of our patients’ IVF treatment success and these are our results (FET):

My IVF Alternative 2012 success rate for FET 55.6%

Donor Embryo IVF scheduling.

No matter if you decide to use fresh embryo donation for your IVF treatment in the Czech Republic ( where the clinic’s extensive egg donor database of over 1500 tested and ready to donate donors is available to you) or you prefer donor embryo IVF using embryos already created and frozen, precise coordination and scheduling of your treatment is still very important. A lot has to happen before you come for your 1-3 day IVF vacation to the Czech Republic to complete your embryo donation IVF treatment. We have even assisted patients flying to Brno in the morning, having their embryo transfer  and flying home in the afternoon of the same day – still with the same success rate! We can arrange for your donor-embryo IVF treatment in the Czech Republic in as early as five weeks for couples using fresh embryo donation IVF and in as little as three weeks for couples using frozen donor embryos for their IVF treatment.

Your next question on your mind probably is:

Who are Czech donors and how does the matching process work?

You can refer to our Donor Egg IVF page for more details about who the donors are, including some pictures of Czech girls from my personal album. Just like with any other donation in the Czech Republic,  donor egg/donor sperm or complete donor embryo is mutually anonymous but My IVF Alternative patients can benefit from our donor matching assistance:

  • detailed explanation of the embryo adoption IVF abroad process to you
  • listening to your needs and desires
  • relationship with the IVF clinic and the key staff members
  • donor embryo matching service since 2006
  • most importantly – PERFECT knowledge of not only English but also CZECH language and culture

My IVF Alternative can best ensure that the donor matching team of IVF doctors has all the right information to offer you a match. We can advocate for you to get more than the standard information on a possible donor embryo match (age, blood type, height, weight, hair color, eye color, achieved education). When requested (and if available), we are able to find out additional information about our patient’s possible egg and sperm donor such as: type of education and degree (BA minimum), if the donors have their own children, if they were previous successful donors (proven donor) or  first time donors, additional characteristics, etc.

Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Republic with lots of high quality schools and universities. Education is highly valued in the Czech Republic and greatly taken advantage of by the Czech population.Our egg donors are well educated.

What is the treatment and coordination cost of IVF with egg donation in Czech with My IVF Alternative?

If you have been through the infertility nightmare or you read about us or our personal IVF journey , you know what expenses can arise during a fertility treatmennt.  You can also read and watch video testimonials of our IVF patients sharing their details. One common thing for all of us was the unknown of HOW MUCH we will actually end up spending when the IVF treatment is complete as there always seemed to be extras. Spending a fortune and still not knowing the total cost just added additional stress to already emotional, stressful and time demanding treatments for us in the US.
To make sure this is not the case for our IVF patients during their ivf journey in the Czech Republic, the ivf treatment and coordination cost is a package, covering all aspects of the donor-embryo IVF treatment and coordination.
