Medical examination of egg donors

After selecting an egg donor, our partner organization, the ReproART Center, will start a thorough medical examination of the donor. The egg donor will complete special tests defined in the internal standards of our partner center. The cost of the examination is covered by the couple at the ReproART Center.

After an egg donor is evaluated positively by the ReproART doctor, the donor will be considered acceptable for the couple.

Preparation of future mothers and egg donors with medications

After having selected an egg donor, the menstrual cycles of the egg donor and the future mother are synchronized so that the embryo may be transferred into the future mother’s uterus with a properly prepared endometrium.

If endometrial preparation for a future mother takes place in Georgia, the waiting period is 14-16 daysalthough she can prepare in her home country under the supervision of a reproductive endocrinologist of her choice. In such case, the ReproART reproductive medical doctor and the patient’s doctor of choice maintain constant contact and treatment with medications and monitoring are carried out jointly.

If a couple cannot travel to Georgia, the legal aspect can be completed by their authorized person who will sign the contract on their behalf.

In such case, the biological sample (frozen sperm) of the future father must be delivered to Georgia prior to the aspiration procedure. As for the couple, they can arrive in Georgia as late as the day of embryo transfer (into the future mother’s uterus) and their stay in the country will last between 1 and 3 working days.
