Is the two-week wait also necessary in ovodonation?

By Silvia Azaña Gutiérrez B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 01/03/2022

Yes, any assisted reproduction treatment will have two-week wait time until the pregnancy test is performed.

This is because the pregnancy test cannot be performed too early because it could give a false-negative result, that is, a negative result even though you are pregnant. This erroneous result would occur because the beta-hCG hormone levels in early pregnancy are still so low that the test would not be able to detect them.
