Does the donor’s age have an influence on the probability of success?

Egg quality when we talk of “childbearing age” between the ages of 18 and 35 and in a pre-selected donor population, does not depend on age. In addition to the strict selection criteria of our donors, it should be noted that only those that, in addition to meeting the requirements for acceptance on the programme and who demonstrate that they have good response to treatment, will get to the follicular puncture stage and be assigned.

Furthermore,at EUGIN the oocytes are not given to the receptor until the biologists have confirmed their “fitness” to be inseminated, regardless of the age of the donor. Our extensive experience in oocyte donation has enabled us to carry out studies showing that pregnancy rates in egg donation are maintained and are independent of the age of the donor.
