Egg donation gives women with poor-quality oocytes, or the lack of oocytes altogether, the option to undergo a safe and effective fertility treatment. Unica has been providing egg donation treatment since 2003, making us the clinic with the longest track record and experience in egg donation in the Czech Republic. Approximately one-third of women, who have difficulty with conception, either have ovaries unable to produce eggs suitable for fertilization or do not have any ovaries at all. In these instances, Czech Law allows for the possibility to use donated eggs as a method of fertility.
For whom is treatmentwith donated egg suitable?

She does not have enough quality eggs or cannot produce them
Oocyte factor - repeatedly very low number of acquired oocytes and their low quality, frequent failure of fertilization, scoring, implantation with using own oocytes
Genetic predisposition (indication) - not solvable by preimplantation genetic diagnostics

What is the success rate ofegg donation treatment?
Since the embryos originate from oocytes obtained from young women, the success rates are very high, even during the first cycle. The cumulative success rate in the first complete Egg Donation treatment cycle at UNICA stands at 70% (1st fresh transfer plus additional cryo-transfers from same fertilization) and 97% from 3 complete cycles.

How it works?
We have built an extensive database of donors since we work with donations at our clinic. So we always have enough tested donors, which means that treatment can begin as soon as possible.
Reservation of the appointment, initial consultation
Preparation of the treatment - filling in the anamnestic questionnaire
Necessary examinations (at home or on the day of consultation with the doctor)
Consultation with the IVF doctor (at a distance or directly at the clinic): preparation of the treatment plan
Donor egg collection, partner's sperm and subsequent fertilization
How do we select the egg donors?
Donor selection is a complex process influenced by many factors. We put the most emphasis on fulfilling each individual requests of our patient couples.
We focus our attention on the resemblance between donor and recipient
The donor selection process respects the blood type and the Rh factor of the recipient, her physiognomy including hair color and eye color, as well as her physique.
Donors are young women, no older than 30 years of age, who register into our donor center and wish to help other women
In most cases, donors are university students or young mothers on maternity leave who are carefully selected in order to ensure oocytes of the highest quality. Every donor has, at a minimum, a high-school education.
All donors must always fulfil strict criteria for egg donation and embryos
This criteria is in accordance with the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (Guidelines for oocyte donation of The American Society of Reproductive Medicine, published in Fertility and Sterility Journal, Vol.77, No. 6, Suppl. 5, June 2002).
All donors must, of course, fulfil all legal requirements as defined by Czech Law
At Unica, we take it one step further and have defined a set of internal selection criteria that are even more strict and stringent than Czech regulations which is reflected in our success rates and the result of our fundamental know-how.
Unica’s team of physicians, coordinators, and nurses consists of carefully chosen professionals with great personal qualities dedicated to patient satisfaction. Our employees are a carefully selected and well-coordinated team of doctors and nurses with great human and professional qualities who are always ready to address every concern of even the most demanding patients.

After asking around for references within our network, we thankfully landed on Unica!
Our story began many years ago when my husband and I decided to get married after several years of dating. We were both already in our 30’s at the time of the wedding and definitely had plans of starting a family, albeit, not right away.
Andrea and Premek
We tried many different clinics, but it was the same no matter where we went. We were finally put in touch with Unica and decided to give it one last try.
My husband and I started struggling to have a baby seven years ago. By that time, I went to regular gynecologic examinations, which showed that I had serious health problems. I was devastated, almost depressed, and would start crying anytime someone mentioned the word children “child”.
