What is Embryo Donation?Embryo Donation - Dr Hit

The embryo in your womb forms as the fetal egg fertilizes with the sperm. The process of embryo donation involves fertilizing the donated eggs with the donated sperm and injecting it in the woman willing to give birth. Also, we can observe this process by donating the embryo through the surrogate mother.

Clearing the Preliminary Tests

The woman aiming to test a baby for any potential health risks that could affect her health and the procedure.

  • Physical examination for a history and background check
  • Ultrasound to examine any cysts or formations in the abdomen
  • Endometrium to assess the uterus’s condition

The procedure involves preparing the egg and sperm donors by coordinating the blood groups with that of the recipient family. In a case where the blood groups aren’t a suitable match, forcing the procedure forward can result in numerous issues in both the mother and baby. And so, the donor has to pass multiple tests in order for the procedure to move forward.

Surgical Tests

The first and foremost in the list are the surgical tests that examine the donor for any fatal diseases that could harm the prospective mother and baby. These tests include HbsAg, HIV Duo, Anti HIV, and VDRL tests.

Hematological Tests

The next, most important test is the complete blood count of the donor as it has a significant role to play in the egg collection procedure. It involves the Coagulation tests, aPTT, and PT, INR tests.

Modern technology has now allowed parents to prepare better for the children of the future.

You can now be confident about your choice to go with pink or blue using our gender determination service.

How Does It Work?

Knowing the baby’s gender even before it is born is now possible! It takes only a few steps to unravel the baby’s sex. Gender identification involves two methods of doing so. Firstly, an ultrasound helps us determine two of the most important factors:

  • Measuring the Endometrial Thickness
  • Evaluating the Spawning Capacity

Secondly, we can go for gender selection through more methods that come under the HSG method which targets the medicated uterine film.

  • Evaluation of Tubes
  • Intrauterine Control
  • Determination of Drug Usage

More Blood Tests

In every step of the process, you need to have a complete analysis of the blood composition and circulation in the body. And so, for gender determination as well, you need to conduct some blood tests.

  • Blood Count
  • Tests exhibiting bleeding and coagulation
  • Thyroid test
  • Tests alarming for infectious diseases

Examining the Males

Looking for the gender by examining the father is much easier than doing so with the mother. All we need to do is count the sperms and evaluate them. If the sperm is found to be problematic, it is further examined with sperm retrieval and genetic tests. The procedure begins with the egg collection day and has certain guidelines attached with it.

  • The mandatory blood tests need to be conducted
  • You can’t eat or drink anything 5-6 hours before getting anesthesia
  • The medication needs to be altered before the procedure
  • The genetic and hematological tests need to be observed

The Gender Determination Processes

The first step that commences the gender selection process is taking the mother’s interview which is then followed by several other treatments that tell you if it’s a baby girl or a baby boy.

Drug Treatment Process

During this process, we stimulate the ovaries with the use of drugs so the eggs develop and start their job right away. Using needles, we inject the expecting mother with the prescribed drugs under their abdomen’s skin. The ultrasound that follows in the coming days then displays the result which reveals your baby’s gender nicely.

Egg Collection and Microinjection (ICSI)

On injecting the HCG in recipient, the egg collection starts under the effect of anesthesia. Moreover, On the exact same day, we fertilize the eggs with the father-to-be’s sperm. We look at the eggs under a microscope while the fluids soak the egg. We collect the eggs then store them in a lab for around an hour and half, and later on we peel them off using an enzyme or mechanical blows.
