Why does donor-egg IVF fail?

By Rebeca Reus.
Last Update: 05/19/2017

Several complications not necessarily related to egg quality can lead to IVF failure or the impossibility to carry the pregnancy to term in spite of having used donor eggs, including:

  • Genetic abnormalities, which might lead to embryonic arrest at any point of embryo development
  • Uterine alterations that might prevent the embryo from continuing its development and cause the woman to miscarry
  • Implantation failure due to poor endometrial receptivity
