Donor Egg IVF 

Depending on your age and medical history, it may have been suggested to you that your best chance of achieving a pregnancy is through donor eggs or through using donor sperm. Here at Panama Fertility, we are all about individualized care and creating a treatment plan based on your fertility history. 

When is Donor Egg IVF recommended?

There are different cases in which patients are unable to provide their own eggs or sperm due to different types of difficulties or fertility problems. 

Women with ovarian problems

For women who have suffered ovarian failure or for women over 40 with a low ovarian reserve, then using a donor egg from a younger woman could be your best chance at a successful pregnancy. Some women also chose this route if there is a genetic family condition that may be passed on to a child using their own eggs.


Men with low motility or Sperm Count

If the male partner is not producing any sperm or has very poor-quality sperm then using a sperm donor may be the best option for pregnancy. Also, donor sperm is a good option for single women. The procedure for using donor sperm is a simple procedure and can be performed either through IUI or IVF depending on the female partner’s fertility history.

when using donor sperm both parties undergo counseling to understand the implications. Sperm donors are screened for hereditary and infectious diseases.


Screening of Donors

Here at Panama Fertility, all our egg donors are anonymous and you get to choose from our extensive egg bank from donors between 21-31 years old. We have donors in our egg bank from all ethnic backgrounds who have passed stringent tests to qualify as donors.

All the donors in our egg bank undergo genetic testing to screen for any hereditary and genetic diseases. They also undergo a psychological examination and have sessions with our counselor to ensure they fully understand the implications of egg donation. You as the recipient can look at photographs of the donors on our database and choose your donor based on physical appearance that closely matches your own characteristics such as eye color, skin coloring, hair color, and height. You will also learn the level of education achieved by the donor and whether they have had children of their own. All of our tests comply with FDA requirements.

Coordinating Your Cycle

Firstly, you would be evaluated to ensure your uterus is capable of carrying the baby to term. Then together with our IVF Coordinator, you would choose your donor. Then our IVF Coordinator would liaise between you and the donor to time the IVF cycle. We would also start the donor on her medication to stimulate her ovaries ready for egg retrieval.

A date would be set for the donor’s egg retrieval and at this stage, we would also need your partner’s sperm to fertilize the egg. Once fertilization has occurred in our laboratory, we would then schedule the embryo transfer to you the recipient. Once the embryo transfer is complete you may return home to take a pregnancy test 14 days after embryo transfer. Together we wait for a positive result!

In terms of cost, an IVF cycle with donor eggs is $7500 (USD) plus medication costs for you, these can vary but for your budget, you can allocate between $300-$500 (USD). The beauty of treatment at Panama Fertility is that with our extensive database of donors, we have no waiting list and are ready to begin your treatment cycle as soon as you are!

Marybeth & Steve

Our journey had been a long one and unsuccessful trying to get pregnant. We decided to visit a fertility clinic near where we live, and it wasn't the experience we were looking for. I mentioned the idea of medical tourism and we found Panama Fertility. Some of the reasons we decided to choose Panama Fertility is the cost difference. We made a virtual appointment with the clinic, and we felt very comfortable with the doctor. He explained how the whole process could work, we could live in South Florida and just travel for the treatments. However we had been working from home, and decided to move to Panama. Loved the people, loved the country. And it's a much nicer lifestyle at a fraction of the price. Everybody in the clinic has been very friendly. And now we're looking forward to our success story.

Rebeca & Jonathan

After 11 years of marriage, we had three years without using any birth control. And after that time we knew something was wrong. However, at the moment it was not our priority to become parents. Six years later we visited two specialists and underwent a series of tests. However, there was never an answer. There was a diagnosis but more tests were always needed to be able to give us a diagnosis adjusted to a treatment. We gave up the idea of becoming parents. During the pandemic, we returned to the topic, with time to investigate our options. We were struck by the amount of information available to inform us. Knowing that on the first visit, we were going to have an answer and a plan was the one thing that brought us to Panama Fertility. I came away from the first appointment with what I needed, with a complete picture and possible path. Dr. Mario Vega is an awesome listener and it gave me a huge sense of security to know that he was just a message away. The process was relaxed and we conceived on the first try. It was a great surprise. The companionship of the clinic makes you let go of any reason to be stressed. It has been a rewarding experience. The professional level and customer service are incredible. We totally recommend Panama Fertility.
