Donor Egg IVF - How Does It Works?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, DGO

Donor Egg IVF - How Does It Works?

Donor egg IVF is used by more than 70 percent of infertile women above 45 years to conceive. More than 8,000 babies are born in the US to women of all age groups by this method of Assistive Reproductive Technologies (ART). This kind of fertility treatment will become even more popular, in the days to come, because of advances in the egg-freezing technology.

What are donor eggs
Donor eggs are eggs given by a healthy, fertile woman to an infertile woman for in-vitro fertilisation or IVF.

How does the Donor Egg IVF program work?
Before you start this course of treatment, you must consult a doctor regarding its feasibility and effect on your health. Typically, the process has the following steps;

  1. After a donor has been identified, the infertile woman (referred to as ‘you’) and the donor are given medication so that the menstrual cycles of both are synchronised. You are also given medication so that your endometrium lining is ready for womb transfer.
  2. After their donation, the eggs are fertilised using the In Vitro Fertilization technique.
  3. Since the donor is under 35, not more than three embryos are transferred from her to your womb.
  4. Embryos are formed after fertilising donor egg with partner sperm.

In some cases, the embryos may be transferred after they have been fertilised. This line of treatment is undertaken to reduce the stress of this treatment on you.

In cases of men, the following procedures are followed;

  1. Unless the sperm belongs to another man, your partner will be required to give a sample of his sperm to check sperm quality.
  2. The partner must give another sample on the day the eggs are collected.
  3. In the next stage, the eggs and sperm are mixed together and in vitro fertilised.

Chances of success in Donor Egg IVF program

The chances of you conceiving through this program are 60-70%. This strike rate is significantly higher than a conventional IVF line of treatment.

How to start with Donor Egg IVF program?

  1. Finding an egg donor is not that difficult these days. You can find a donor through a fertility clinic, an egg bank, an egg donation agency, a family member or a close family friend. Donors coming from a frozen egg bank are usually screened for health and other reasons. Most donors are in the age group of 21-35 years.
  2. Make it legal i.e while getting donors is easy, the tricky part is to comply with the various legal issues. Consult your spouse, doctor and your attorney before taking this step.
  3. Get counselling i.e. you need expert counselling before you conceive because, let us face it, your baby is not your biological offspring. You and your spouse need to be adequately psychologically prepared for this important development in the family.

Hypervitaminosis D - Are You Taking Too Much Vitamin D?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Hypervitaminosis D - Are You Taking Too Much Vitamin D?

Vitamin D is a vitamin that plays a critical role in maintaining the health of your bones, teeth and joints, as well as in assisting immune system function. But taking too much of it can cause Hypervitaminosis D, a rare but serious condition.

Hypervitaminosis D causes an exponential increase in the levels of calcium in your blood. And this can affect your bones, tissues, and other organs. The condition can also cause high blood pressure, bone loss, and severe kidney damage if not treated.

Causes

  1. You get Vitamin D from the foods you eat and by exposure to the sun. Still, there is severe Vitamin D deficiency in people living all over the world, including the tropics like India. These people are prescribed vitamin D supplements, a move which can misfire, causing hypervitaminosis D.
  2. Hypervitaminosis D occurs usually due to taking high-dose vitamin D supplements. The recommended dose for Vitamin D is 100 microgram per day. Anything over this, for several months, can cause Hypervitaminosis D.
  3. Some prescription medications used to treat high blood pressure and heart diseases can cause an increase in vitamin D in the blood.
  4. Oestrogen therapy for post-menopausal women is another cause.
  5. Taking antacids for a long time increases the risk for getting hypervitaminosis D.
  6. Isoniazide, an anti-tuberculosis medication, can also lead to elevated levels of vitamin D.

You are more at risk for developing hypervitaminosis D if you take vitamin D supplements and have other health problems, such as:

Vitamin D and Type 2 Diabetes - What is the relation?

  • Vitamin D is most known for its role in bone health, but researchers are beginning to uncover its vital role in the function of the pancreas, the organ that secretes insulin.
  • Doctors believe there is a link between vitamin D and Type 2 Diabetes as studies have shown that people who have the lowest vitamin D levels in their blood are at an increased risk of developing T2D later in life. Similarly, most newly diagnosed diabetes patients have lower vitamin D levels than people without diabetes.
  • Vitamin D is prescribed by doctors in type 2 diabetes to help improve the body’s insulin sensitivity and thus reduce the risk of insulin resistance, which is often a precursor to type 2diabetes.
  • Vitamin D helps your body metabolise sugar in your blood as well as it regulates calcium, which also helps manage blood sugar.
  • The trick is to not overdo the vitamin D supplementation as it may cause hypervitaminosis D.

Symptoms
Now what makes hypervitaminosis D doubly dangerous is that it can cause raise blood calcium levels. This can lead to a condition called hypercalcemia which means that there is too much calcium in your blood.
The collective symptoms of these two conditions are:

If left untreated hypervitaminosis D can cause:

So, be very careful while taking vitamin D, especially if you have an existent problem with your kidneys or heart. And don’t overdo the vitamin supplementation if you have diabetes- it can backfire. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Endocrinologist.

Only ashokarishta will not helpful, you have to take other medicine also, slate pencil eating means you are lacking of calcium, so such medicine supplements also to be prescribed, if interested let me know.

Nothing to worry. At 11 weeks, organ formation just starts and we cannot differentiate stomach. We are more concerned with heart beat & gestational age shown on ultrasound vs. Missed date by calender ,even there can be variations among the two but only for about 5-6 days+ or - good luck to you to get to see normal stomach around 16 weeks +

There are less chances of you being pregnant if the test is negative. But you may repeat it after 1 week as sometimes it comes false negative. And to be sure you may consult a gynecologist for physical examination and confirmation.

There is no risk of getting pregnant because ovulation occurs mostly around 14 th day of menstruation cycle. But it's not 100 %sure, if next period delayed check by pregnancy check card.
