Can I take any medicine for the infection other than paracetamol?

Pregnant women should not take any medication without first consulting their obstetrician, or medical team, if they are affected by Covid19.

Pregnant women should not take any medication without first consulting their obstetrician, or medical team, if they are affected by Covid19. Although we know that almost all medications carry some risk during pregnancy, it is usually low, and the risk-benefit of its administration is usually favorable, since obviously, to obtain a healthy baby we must have a healthy mother.

Donar 贸vulos, una actitud generosa y solidaria.

Muchas mujeres que no pueden tener hijos por problemas de fertilidad recurren a los tratamientos de reproducci贸n asistida (fecundaci贸n in vitro principalmente), en los cuales, a trav茅s de una estimulaci贸n ov谩rica se seleccionan sus mejores 贸vulos para fecundarlos con el semen de su pareja o de otro donante, si as铆 se requiere.

Donar 贸vulos, una actitud generosa y solidaria.

Muchas mujeres que no pueden tener hijos por聽problemas de fertilidad聽recurren a los tratamientos de reproducci贸n asistida (fecundaci贸n in vitro principalmente), en los cuales, a trav茅s de una estimulaci贸n ov谩rica se seleccionan sus mejores 贸vulos para fecundarlos con el semen de su pareja o de otro donante, si as铆 se requiere.

Pero hay casos en que la mujer, por diversas circunstancias -menopausia precoz, enfermedades, cirug铆as, haber padecido c谩ncer, edad avanzada u otras causas-, no produce 贸vulos propios o son de baja calidad. Una聽alternativa聽de tratamiento para ellas es recurrir a la recepci贸n de ovocitos de una mujer donante en una cl铆nica de fertilidad.

As铆, la donaci贸n de 贸vulos es un聽acto solidario y sumamente generoso聽ya que va a dar la posibilidad de que otra mujer pueda cumplir su objetivo de ser madre, llevando una felicidad indescriptible a una pareja que lleva muchos a帽os luchando por tener un hijo.

En HC Marbella Fertility Center queremos contribuir a culminar este objetivo.

Nuestro programa de donaci贸n de 贸vulos est谩 dirigido a mujeres de entre 18 y 30 a帽os que est茅n dispuestas, en un acto an贸nimo, voluntario y altruista, a ayudar a otras mujeres que no pueden ser madres por causas ajenas a su voluntad.

驴Cu谩les son los requisitos para ser donante?

Los requerimientos para ser donante de 贸vulos en Espa帽a est谩n especificados en el Real Decreto 412/1996. En nuestro pa铆s, la legislaci贸n especifica que podr谩n ser donantes de 贸vulos las mujeres que as铆 lo deseen y que re煤nan los siguientes requisitos:

  • Que sean聽mayores de 18 a帽os y menores de 30聽y hayan mantenido previamente relaciones sexuales.
  • Que est茅n en聽buen estado de salud f铆sica y ps铆quica鈥 sin antecedentes personales o familiares de enfermedades hereditarias graves y sin antecedentes de patolog铆a ginecol贸gica.
  • No ser portadora de聽enfermedades聽de transmisi贸n sexual.
  • Tener disponibilidad para聽acudir a la consulta cuanto sea necesario聽durante el proceso de donaci贸n o de selecci贸n.

驴C贸mo es el proceso de donaci贸n?

El proceso de la聽donaci贸n de 贸vulos聽es bastante sencillo. Deber谩s acudir a nuestro centro, donde hablaremos contigo sobre fertilidad femenina, la importancia de donar 贸vulos, la preparaci贸n para la donaci贸n y la intervenci贸n en s铆 misma.

Despu茅s, tras consulta con nuestros especialistas en fertilidad y el psic贸logo, comienza el proceso que dura dos semanas.

El primer paso es preparar a la donante y sincronizar su ciclo con el de la paciente. El objetivo es conseguir que los ovarios de la donante produzcan m谩s 贸vulos que en un mes normal. Esto se consigue a trav茅s de medicaci贸n, que te podr谩s poner t煤 misma en casa durante 10-12 d铆as, durante los cuales, deber谩s acudir a la聽consulta para control. Una vez que est谩n maduros, los 贸vulos se extraen mediante una leve intervenci贸n, v铆a transvaginal, que dura unos 15-20 minutos. Luego, permanecer谩s en la sala de recuperaci贸n del Centro entre 1 y 2 horas, hasta que terminen los efectos de la sedaci贸n. Si as铆 lo deseas, puedes ir acompa帽ada por alguien de tu confianza.

驴Existe una compensaci贸n econ贸mica?

S铆, en聽HC Fertility聽te ofrecemos una compensaci贸n econ贸mica por las molestias ocasionadas, que est谩 fijada por el Ministerio de Sanidad, Servicios Sociales e Igualdad, siguiendo las recomendaciones de la Comisi贸n Nacional de Reproducci贸n Humana Asistida.

驴HC Marbella me garantiza la confidencialidad de mis datos?

S铆, HC Fertility garantiza el anonimato de la donante de 贸vulos y de la pareja receptora de esos 贸vulos.

Egg Vitrification

Egg vitrification: no need to rely on your biological clock鈥 You would like to have children, you鈥檝e always wanted them and your partner would like them too, however you are at a time in your life when having a child would prevent you from having the professional career you long for鈥.,

+

or you still haven鈥檛 met the right partner. These are a couple of the reasons that many women decide nowadays to delay motherhood. However, if you don鈥檛 want to rely on your biological clock, egg vitrification could be the solution. It can also be used for medical reasons prior to chemotherapy, radiotherapy or removal of the ovaries as well as for endometriosis, for which reasons it was first prescribed.

 

What is egg vitrification?

Egg vitrification is an assisted reproduction technique which allows a woman鈥檚 eggs to be frozen at a stage in her life when she is still fertile, for use at an appropriate time in the future.

 

What is the process?

Vitrification is a type of freezing involving an ultra-rapid cooling technique. This prevents the formation of ice crystals within the egg which could damage its structure and leave it unsuitable for fertilisation.

The first and most important step is the selection of the fertility clinic where the treatment is going to be performed. The clinic should be accredited to carry out the procedure with professionals who are qualified to perform both egg vitrification and treatment afterwards when the time arrives. At HC Fertility, the Fertility Unit at HC Marbella, the whole process is performed by excellent professionals in a supportive, calm and confidential environment.

The duration of treatment varies from 8 to 10 days and consists of the following stages, which are very similar to the initial stages of in vitro fertilisation:

Ovarian stimulation.

Egg retrieval.

Egg vitrification.

 

And then what?

When you decide the time is right, the eggs which have undergone vitrification are defrosted. In vitro fertilisation treatment is then started to obtain the embryos which could lead to pregnancy.

 

What you should know:

This treatment will not affect your future fertility or your future egg reserves. It simply consists of obtaining eggs which would be lost in a normal ovulation cycle.

Probability of success is raised, it will essentially depend on your age when egg vitrification took place.

Egg vitrification can last for as long as you wish, the eggs can be used at a time which is most convenient for you.

Is there a waiting list for the egg donation program? And how many times do I have to come to Marbella and for how long?

There is no waiting list for donors at HC Fertility; once we have identified a suitable donor for you the preparation period is from 6 to 8 weeks.

+

You will be required to come for an initial consultation so that our specialists can study your case, we will also discuss the procedure and do any analysis required with the option of freezing a semen sample. This visit takes approximately 2 hours and includes an ultrasound scan.聽The consultation has a cost of 150鈧.

The second visit: arriving the day before the donor鈥檚 egg retrieval plan your stay for 6 or 7 days, or if a semen sample was frozen during your initial consultation you can arrange to arrive in time for the embryo transfer this is usually on day 3 or 5 following the egg collection.聽This way reducing the time needed to stay in Marbella.

We strongly recommend if possible to allow time to relax and enjoy your time in Marbella, as reducing the stress levels in assisted reproduction programs greatly improves the success rate.聽And where better than to relax and de-stress than Marbella鈥

Can I choose my own egg donor? And what are the screening tests for a donor?

In Spain all donations are anonymous. We are allowed to give you some information, for example her physical characteristics, blood group, age, nationality and if she is a proven donor or not. This means if she has donated before and been successful or if she has a child of her own.

+

The donors screening are those recommended by the SEF (Spanish Fertility Society) but at HC Fertility we do more than the recommended.

 

We have 3 options in for the egg donation program.

Improve your chances

Steps you can take to improve your chances of success

Bar Separator

Stop smoking

Research shows that the chemicals in cigarette smoke are harmful to eggs and sperm. Smoking can greatly reduce sperm count and decrease the response to stimulation and the rate of fertilization. Second-hand smoke also may decrease the odds that a fertilized egg will be able to implant in the uterus.

Bar Separator

Eat well

A well balanced diet comprised of a wide range of fresh fruits and vegetables helps to increase your chances.

Bar Separator

Maintain a normal weight for your height

Being overweight or underweight can affect your chances of success and can lead to complications in pregnancy. Maintaining a normal Body Mass Index (BMI) within a range of 19-30 kg/m2 can help you achieve a better response to stimulation and treatment.

Bar Separator

Reduce your alcohol consumption

Heavy drinking exposes the fetus to toxins that may result in fetal abnormalities. It also affects sperm production and motility. Avoiding alcohol altogether during treatment is encouraged.

Bar Separator

Avoid stress

Relaxing and getting enough sleep can help reduce stress levels and relieve anxiety.

Avoid strenuous exercise

Gentle exercise is encouraged to improve health and help cope with the stress of investigations and treatment.
