Giving to Charity – Information for Potential Reproductive Tissue Donors

In "IVF Riga" clinic for infertility treatment are widely used donor programs: egg donation and sperm donation.

There are two methods of fertilization, depending on the semen quality – either by means of the traditional IVF method, or with the help of micro-fertilization (ICSI). In vitro fertilization (IVF).

In vitro fertilization (IVF)

Fertilization in vitro (IVF) is the type of infertility treatment used when the ovum is fertilized outside of female body. Currently fertilization in vitro is the most efficient type of infertility treatment. If the semen's motility and morphology are normal (or close to normal) in regard to the number of sperm, than the conventional IVF method can be used for egg fertilization.

Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

Just like in vitro fertilization, inracytoplasmia sperm injection microfertilization is an efficient method of infertility treatment. This method is more frequently used for the treatment of male infertility.

Legal aspect

According to Latvian legislation, IVF may be performed for heterosexual couples using a partner's or donor's sperm, as well as for single women until the age 49 years
For the optimal success of the procedure, the woman will have to undergo an ovarian stimulation course (of 10-12 days) which will use FSH medicines. During this time, the woman will need two to three USG checkups. When follicles reach 18-20 mm in size, then it will be necessary to prescribe medication for the maturation of egg cells and egg cell collection date will be scheduled. This procedure will be performed under intravenous anesthesia, upon which the collected egg cells are placed into a special environment and to be later be fertilized with sperm. Further embryo growth and division will be observed; on the third or fifth day, a procedure will take place to insert the embryo into the uterine cavity.
