IVF With Donor Egg Testing

The Complete List of Tests Required for IVF with Donor Egg

Before our fertility doctors create your IVF Calendar and you undergo your IVF with egg donor treatments, you and your spouse will need to provide us with the results for what's called IVF precycle tests. The list of tests for the egg donor cycle is remarkably similar to that for the IVF cycle using own eggs. There are, however, a few differences. Since donor egg recipients are not being stimulated, you will not need to test for FSH, LH.

In an effort to assist you, we have prepared this pre-cycle checklist as a guide to understanding the in vitro process and how important it is to complete all required steps in a timely matter. Theses tests can be ordered by your local ObGyn doctor. If you already have results for some of these tests, please contact us to clarify which test you may still need.


Step I Uterine Cavity Evaluation (must be completed within 6 months of IVF cycle)

○ Saline Sonogram – Make an appointment with your OB/GYN on the first day of your next period to schedule. This appointment needs needs to be scheduled on cycle day 7 thru 10.

Step II Required Infectious Disease Screening for Female & Male (test valid for one year)

♀ Female Blood Testing
○ HTLV I/II
○ RPR
○ HIV
○ Hepatitis B surface antigen
○ Hepatitis C antibody
○ RH Blood Type
○ CBC
○ Glucose (Fasting)
○ TSH/Prolactin/Rubella/Varicella

♂ Male Blood Typing

Step III Required IVF Semen Analysis (good for one year)

○ Contact your OB/GYN and ask for a referral to an IVF clinic in your area to schedule an appointment for a semen analysis for your spouse. This test can also be preformed in our clincs for a fee of $30, if it makes the process easier.


The combined cost of doing precycle testing for both female and male patients with our clinic is $400. If precycle testing is done with us, the patients must travel to our clinic two days prior to IVF treatments start date.


Once ALL test have been completed we can then give a proper protocol for your IVF cycle. A calendar will be created to give you exact dates for your IVF treatments and the length of time you will need to stay with our clinic.
