In some cases where the reproductive cells seem not present or are totally not available and due to this, when the chance of getting pregnant with both egg and sperm becomes impossible, in these instances, the only available option is the method of Cyprus embryo donation. This method is done by making use of reproductive cells that are obtained from both sperm and egg donors. In male and female couples that have azospermia and menopausal status at the same time, this method of embryo donation has been found to create wonders in the way of having a baby. This method of embryo donation involves fertilization of fresh cycle of egg cells with the sperm cells taken from the sperm bank (Cryos International), which are prepared in a way that it is compatible with the physical characteristics of the father and mother.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate For Embriyo Donation?
- Women in menopause
- Women who have delayed pregnancy in the name of pursuing their future carrier, late marriages, and therefore have weakened or completely lost egg cells
- Women who have experienced an early menopause because of many reasons which can include genetic inheritance, stress and hereditary diseases
- Women who do not produce or those who failed to produce eggs, even if the uterine tissue is smooth.
- Women with congenital reproductive problems, such as Turner or Mosaic Turner syndrome
- Women who have lost their egg cells and who go through the menopause because they are exposed to high doses of chemotherapy
- Women who have a genetic disease that can be transmitted to the baby (hemophilia, Huntington's disease, Duchenne's muscular dystrophy, etc.)
- Women who have removed all or most of the ovaries due to surgery.
- Men with azospermia

How to Choose Donors?
There are certain rules and criteria for being an egg donor. An individual that failed to meet up with these criteria are by no means considered egg donors. The illness, physical and psychological condition of the donor, the immune system will be analyzed by the use of a lot of tests and in the event that they are considered to be fit by medical experts, they will be considered as an egg donor. The major reason behind this overhaul is to avoid future problems after egg donation. As a result of this, a healthy treatment process can be provided.
In our IVF treatment with embryo donation, before egg donors can be selected, it must be confirmed that they are healthy and productive women that fall between the age ranges of 19 to 26 years. All controls and tests of the donor are performed with the utmost care.
For our Cyprus embryo donation treatment, we work in tandem with Cryos International located in Denmark, which was established in 1981, and is known as one of the largest sperm banks and the most reliable in the world.
Prior to the acceptance of the sperm samples by the bank, a lot of comprehensive tests are carried out and in this way, genetic and infectious diseases are examined. Sperm that failed to scale through the test is not accepted in the bank. In this way, our patients no longer ask questions, and their treatment ends in peace.
In addition, sperm donors are subjected to psychological and intelligence tests, which are discussed in detail by the sperm bank in terms of physical and biological conditions. On the other hand, donor sperm that failed the assessment will be rejected as well. As a result of this, the level of training and intelligence of sperm donors is high.
Stages Of Embryo Donation
- The history of treatment and detailed features of the couples are taken into account, the treatment plan is made accordingly. Testing and other preparations are mandatory. Our experienced patient coordinator Irem Berk, constantly provide psychological support to couples in their decision-making and preparation processes of the couples.
- The selection of egg donors is done by our experts, Dr. Firdevs, based on information obtained from couples, such as ethnic identity, physical characteristics, dominant characteristics, blood groups, etc. Information about the selected donor can be shared with couples. Upon approval, the final decision is made by conducting detailed tests and checks of the donor.
- In addition to obtaining the physical properties of the father’s hair color, eye color, body structure, and blood group groups among others, the sperm donor selection process is initiated and suitable sperm sample is decided from Cryos International Denmark, one of the world most reliable and the largest sperm bank.
- As we make a fresh cycle (fresh eggs), maternal and donor preparations are performed simultaneously. Therefore, the menstruation period from the mother was placed before treatment with the use of different tablets. If the mother is in menopause, this type of balancing is not needed, treatment can be started directly. As donor’s eggs are developed by Dr. Firdevs, the endometrium of the mother is prepared by making use of various medications.
- In this process, our patient coordinator, Irem Berk, helps the mother, step by step, and ensure an uninterrupted process. This pre-preparation process begins on the 2nd or 3rd day of the mother’s and donor’s menstrual period and it takes between 11 to 12 days for the completion of the process.
- After about 12 days of treatment, the donor is prepared for the egg collection process. All egg cells are fertilized by the sperm cells of the donor sperm. Since the eggs are prepared for the patient, fresh, one to one, and the sharing is not done, we can guarantee at least 10 healthy eggs for each patient. After fertilization, the fertilized embryo develops in special incubators. On the same day, we examined the mother's endometrium and began to take new medications that prepare mothers for pregnancy.
- The embryo transfer stage is the last stage of the treatment of the Cyprus embryo donation. This can be done on the 3rd or 5th day of fertilization. The best developing embryos are transferred to the mother in a painless manner, followed by ultrasound.
