Nowadays, thanks to the techniques of assisted reproduction, many couples achieve their dream of motherhood. But in the cases in which the woman has a problem in her ovaries (advanced age, early menopause) or suffers from a genetic disease that could be transmitted to her children, the success of reproduction techniques depends on the donation program of oocytes. In Vitro Fertilization with donated ovules has been carried out successfully in the world since 1984. In the oocyte donation program, young women undergo an ovarian stimulation treatment with the objective of donating their eggs to those women who need them to be able to get pregnant.
The treatment with donated ovules is recommended in the following cases:
- Primary ovarian failure due to a numerical or structural alteration of the chromosomes (Turner Syndrome, Swyer Syndrome).
- Resistant Ovarian Syndrome (Savage Syndrome).
- Premature ovarian failure (Menopause before 40 years).
- Advanced ovarian age.
- Repeated failures in In Vitro Fertilization.
Patients whose ovaries have been removed for different reasons (tumors, severe endometriosis (grade III, or IV), cancer, chemotherapy.
