IVF & Egg Donation Blog

We failed IVF what now? The answer to this question is enormously hard for some of us.

Many families struggling to conceive children have undergone repeated cycles of failed in vitro fertilization (IVF), leaving them pretty much convinced that nothing will ever work for them.

But, as they say, where there is life, there is hope. Sunshine has accumulated significant experience in helping families who have gone through unsuccessful IVF attempts at other reproductive clinics.

Interested in figuring out how Sunshine donation agency can assist you in growing your family? Here you will find further details on our services.

Sunshine helps people of all sexual orientations to build the family they are dreaming of. If you and your partner want to start a family, you may wonder what options you have and how the process looks like.

There are two ways for male couples to have a child – using a gestational carrier and traditional surrogacy.

At Sunshine, we’ll use your or your partner’s sperm in combination with an egg donated by an egg donor.

The egg will be fertilized by IVF and the embryo will be carried by a surrogate mother. We will do the semen analysis of the partner who wishes to donate his sperm to test the viability of the sperm.

According to the statistics, the level of anxiousness and depression in women suffering from infertility can be compared to those with cancer, HIV, and heart disease.

When it comes to men, they also experience the consequences, such as self-esteem issues and a higher risk of developing anxiety and depression.

However, due to the fact that infertility is not generally seen as a disease, a lot of people find it difficult to understand how it can affect a human being.

As a result, people dealing with infertility feel completely misunderstood and isolated, and these are the symptoms of depression.

Sadly, more than 50 million people globally suffer from infertility. Most individuals or couples can become fertile again with well-established therapeutic methods.

However, when such less aggressive methods fail or in situations when they are inappropriate, in vitro fertilization (IVF) may be required. In short, IVF is an assisted reproduction method in which egg and sperm are combined in a laboratory to provide for fertilization to happen outside the body, followed by transfer of the embryo back to the uterus.

Sunshine is expanding possibility space for women who have had difficulties conceiving. Via using donor eggs, both fresh and frozen, we enable pregnancy for women struggling to conceive with their own egg. Our pregnancy success rates with donor eggs depend on a woman’s age and are approaching 80%.

What is an ideal weight for pregnancy? Are there any restrictions?

Female fertility may be affected by a vast variety of factors, some of which are quite well-known to the general public.

However, there are also other factors in play that you may not be aware of, yet they could be crucial to your ability to conceive a baby.

One of them is healthy body weight. It may seem unlikely that what you eat (and consequently, your weight) could impact on fertility.

However, our bodies think that the optimal time to bear a child is when you’re lean and fit. As a result, being overweight could reduce your chances of getting pregnant.

At one point in your fertility journey, you should make a stressful, but important step – visit a fertility clinic.

The initial several appointments can be particularly intimidating because you do not know what to expect and must process large amounts of information provided to you.

It is essential to ask the right questions at your appointments but if you feel overwhelmed you will easily forget those questions. One trick is to prepare a list of questions prior to your appointments.

As your appointment is coming to an end, pull out your list and run through it with your fertility doctor to ensure you get all the answers you need.

The ability to use the services of an egg donor came as a godsend for many women who have lost their fertility.

Many people are aware of the fact that the fertility of a woman begins to decline after she hits the mid-30s.

More and more women decide to build a family later in their life; unfortunately, unlike men, their fertility rapidly declines after a certain age and they are unable to have kids.

Thankfully, by choosing an egg donor, you can experience the joy of motherhood you’ve always dreamed of.

All you have to do is overcome any preconceptions that you may have and use the following tips when browsing through our extensive database of egg donors.

While you may be feeling more than ready to move forward and have a transfer as soon as possible, it’s actually best to wait.

The longer an embryo has to develop, the more likely the embryologist will be able to select the highest quality to transfer.

It also allows time for preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) to screen for genetic abnormalities. A more viable blastocyst means a greater chance of surviving transfer and implantation.

In fact, a blastocyst transfer is the closest thing to a natural pregnancy; at day 5 of development, the uterine lining is typically the most receptive to an embryo that would just be leaving the fallopian tube.

Well, nothing physical is ticking inside your body planning to ring when it is the best age to become a parent.

Nevertheless, there is an innate mechanism in your brain. The one orchestrates your physiological processes like growth, sleep, as well as reproduction.

For instance, the sleep-regulating circadian rhythm is a component of this innate mechanism. It helps your body to adjust well to the environment.

According to some researchers, it can also produce a hormonal inclination for becoming a parent at a certain point in time. One study conducted in 2011 shows that women and men alike can experience an “impulsive, instinctual and almost overwhelming urge for having a baby.”

The quality of sperm affects the possibility of conceiving the child.

That`s why many couples are eager to know what affects sperm quality and how to improve it.

Common bad habits and an unhealthy lifestyle can greatly harm your sperm.

There are many factors that affect sperm quality. Sperm should have 50% or more healthy spermatozoa that have an oval head and a long tail.

Healthy sperm must be motile and there should also be a normal indicator of their number – about 20 million for 1 ml of sperm.

All these indicators are very important for the quality of sperm, but there are factors that can worsen it.
