15 percent of the population is considered infertile. Infertility is described as not having a baby after 6 months of unprotected intercourse.
Infertility is increasing in modern communities. In men declines in sperm count due to toxic environment and possible evolutionary effects is noted. Also women due to educational and career concerns are married at a later age. Average menopausal age ranges between 48 and 52 in women. We now know that, several years before the menopause women are unable to bear children due to the diminished ovarian function.
In the current era, women get married when they approach their mid-late 30’s and start to plan their conceptions plans just newly. Unfortunately, the biology of the woman changes greatly after the age of 38 and the chance for becoming pregnant via natural ways diminishes.
Sperm donation procedure is necessary if the physicians are unable to find sperm from the males after Micro TESE ( microsurgical testicular extraction) which is an advanced operation. In addition to that, very low sperm quality is also an obstacke for the success of IVF treatments, therefore some couples directly choose to use a donor sperm.
Th is procedure is necessary when the woman is in the menopausal era, or have fertility issues such as poor ovarain reserve and when the man has no/or very low quality sperm. IVF Clinic performs both fresh and frozen embryo donation procedures. Fresh Embryo donation involves the preparation of a donor lady with IVF drugs for 10-12 days. When the donor lady goes into the egg collection, frozen sperm vial from the male donor is also prepared and the ICSI ( microinjection method) is performed.
