Abstract: The wait for an oocyte donor is highly unpredictable and stressful. The recipients may have to remain contactable at all times. Even when a donor is present, their reproductive cycles may not be in synchrony to enable gamete or embryo replacement, and embryo freezing is required for the transfer of embryos in the subsequent cycle. After the release of the Guidelines for Assisted Reproductive Technique by the Ministry of Health we have established a simplified oocyte donation programme with which the need for synchronisation, embryo freezing and the disruption to the recipient couple's social life are eliminated. To illustrate, we report the first report of oocyte donation pregnancy home bred and delivered in Singapore.
