A lot of patients all over the world consider Tandem IVF Cycle as an option during their infertility treatment because this type of treatment involves using both donor’s and patient’s eggs with their further fertilizing by semen.
In such way, you can maximize your chances to reach pregnancy either with your own oocytes or have donor’s ones as a back-up plan. This type of program can also save you time and finances since here you are undergoing two types of treatment at the same time.
How does it work?
Patients who have already made several unsuccessful attempts to get pregnant with own oocytes or those women with low ovarian reserve often wish to give themselves the last chance and at the same time to increase the probability of the positive outcome. Both egg donor and patient are stimulated simultaneously and their cycles are synchronized. Right after an egg collection, both sets of eggs are fertilized by partner’s or donor’s semen. Once embryos reach a certain level of development, their quality is estimated and you can decide on the number of embryos to transfer. In addition, you will need to choose which embryos to use – your own, donor’s or a combination of them. You will certainly be given professional piece of advice and a possibility to discuss this question with the team of our embryologists and fertility specialists.
