IVF Refund

What happens if none of the donor eggs makes it to the blastocyst stage and there are no suitable embryos for transfer?

We would like to preface our answer by saying that MedVacation has not had a situation, when none of the donor eggs made it to the transfer stage. There has always been at least two growing embryos at the time of transfer. Although MedVacation has not dealt with such a situation, not having growing embryos at the time of transfer is certainly conceivable. The reality is there are no guarantees in IVF. That is, whether you choose our overseas clinic or decide to work with a fertility clinic in the U.S., no IVF clinic can guarantee you will become pregnant. Nevertheless, if you have no embryos to be transferred, you will be eligible for a full or partial refund, depending on your situation.

Although our clinic’s donors are carefully prescreened and thoroughly tested prior to enrollment into our egg donor program, there are many other factors that affect the quality of your future embryos. One of those factors is the quality of semen used in the fertilization stage. The development of an embryo has to do with the male sperm as well. In fact it is a huge factor! Nearly 1/3 of all infertility cases are attributed to the male factor. If an egg does not fertilize it is very difficult to determine for sure what could have been the problem, if we had a beautiful egg at the start. If we have to work with a sperm that has poor morphology, motility or concentration, than there is a good chance that it is a sperm factor not an egg factor.

Lastly, we would like to address the issue of the refund, in cases when good quality eggs didn’t make it to the transfer stage. The donors we use are screened and are proven donors with good egg quality. Regardless of what the case may be, the donor has already been stimulated with medication, the egg retrieval took place and all the IVF lab work has been processed. In a situation like this, unfortunately, there is no refund available to patient.
