Golden Egg

What is Golden Egg?


‘Golden Egg’ is the name given to healthy eggs retrieved from the prospective mother with problems related with egg reserve, miscarriage or advanced age with ‘Dual-Stimulation Method’ and tested genetically. Inevitably, specialization solely in in vitro fertilization and acting as pioneer of ‘personalized treatment’ brought about new treatment options. GOLDEN EGG, a method named by Hakan Ozornek, M.D., named the ‘GOLDEN EGG’ which is a treatment applied especially to the women in advanced maternal age who suffer from statistically lower chances as they are in challenging patient group and this method creates big difference in getting the change of pregnancy through elimination of the disadvantage arising from the age.



Chance of Motherhood with Golden Egg



Eggs are retrieved from a prospective mother two times within one menstruation cycle, using Dual Stimulation Method. Eggs are retrieved with 10-day treatment per menstruation and these eggs are frozen with vitrification method. Medication treatment is applied with the same method once again 3-4 days after the egg retrieval procedure and retrieval process is repeated for the new eggs.  Genetic test is performed on 4-5 eggs with the best quality upon retrieving them as explained above. There is a high risk of genetic defect in 1 egg out of 2 eggs transferred to women at 40 years of age. In this case, conception chances are reduced, and pregnancy is terminated due to miscarriage. Genetic diagnosis test is performed to eliminate the defective eggs in order to prevent this situation. Higher number of eggs are retrieved through stimulation with medicines in one menstruation cycle and chances of retrieving the healthiest and best quality of eggs are increased. Thus, higher chance of healthy pregnancy is achieved. 



Who is Eligible for Golden Egg Treatment?



 • Mothers of advanced age

 • Prospective (young) mothers having problems with egg reserve and quality

 • Prospective mothers who suffered from repetitive miscarriages 



What is Ovarian Reserve?




Each woman has a certain ovarian capacity at birth (1-2 million eggs) and this count is reduced to 400 thousand at adolescence.  In other words, the count and quality of eggs are reduced with age, particularly after 36-37 years of age, and the count declines to 25 thousand. This process is accelerated after 40 years of age. The ovarian reserve is consumed, and menopause starts at around 45-50 years of age. The ovaries cannot maintain their functions, menstruation stops, and chance of pregnancy is reduced to zero. The ovarian reserve of a woman is known at birth. The ovarian reserve depends on age. In other words, the chance of pregnancy is eliminated with the aging of the eggs. 8-10 eggs can be retrieved from prospective mothers of 20-30 years of age and this number is reduced to 1-2 for prospective mothers 40 years of age. Therefore, each egg is as valuable as gold.



How to Measure the Ovarian Reserve?



The count and quality of follicles in ovaries of a woman determine the capacity of conception. The chance of conception is reduced for women in proportion with the reduction of ovarian reserve, and the risk of miscarriage increases even if the conception occurs. Therefore, analysis of the ovarian reserve is very important for couples who want to have a baby. On the other hand, chronological age of a woman may not always be in parallel with the age of ovaries and the age of ovary may be higher than the woman’s age. In other words, woman’s age may be 25-30 but the age of ovaries may be 40. Important information is obtained with the analysis of the ovarian reserve and such information is used to determine the method of infertility treatment and chance of conception. High ovarian reserve is an indicator of the high follicle count in ovaries and higher chance of conception. Today, women decide to get married when they are older, or they delay plans of having children due to career plans even when they get married young; therefore, these factors appear as the one of the biggest barriers before having children. Every woman should have ovarian reserve analysed by the age of 30 regardless of she is married or not. Reproductive health check-up allows early diagnosis and treatment.
