Objective: To evaluate the success rate after oocyte donation and the obstetric and neonatal outcome in these pregnancies.
Design: Prospective study. Setting: Babies and US, Infertility, IVF and ICSI Center, Lilavati Hospital, Mumbai.
Study group: A cohort of 65 women who conceived after oocyte donation. Main outcome measured: Obstetric charts of
all these women were maintained and the incidence of obstetric complications and the perinatal outcome was studied.
Results: The most common antenatal complications were first trimester bleeding (31.2%) and pregnancy-induced hypertension
(23.4%). The incidence of multiple gestations was 15.6%. No major peripartum events were observed. Conclusion: The
incidence of obstetric complications is higher in oocyte donation pregnancies. The complications are usually manageable
and most patients have a successful pregnancy outcome.
