An opportunity to experience pregnancy

Want to be a mother and enjoy the experience of pregnancy? With egg donation, you can. Our pioneering assisted reproduction clinic guarantees great results with the most stringent donor screening programme in the country.

IVF with donated eggs is an assisted reproduction technique which allows the insemination of donor eggs with the sperm of the recipient's partner (or a donor) to obtain embryos which are then transferred to the uterus of the mother-to-be.

Before carrying out the treatment, it is essential to undergo a fertility test for diagnostic purposes and to determine the most appropriate treatment for each patient.

In our clinic, all donor eggs undergo thorough and stringent screening tests; preconception genetic testing, which allows to either detect or rule out up to 300 hereditary diseases, is also performed. The patient's partner also undergoes preconception genetic testing, as does the semen donor in cases where the use of a sperm bank is required.

Step by step

The process consists of the following steps:

Egg donation - Process

Egg donation - Gynaecology visit

Our team will review your medical history and tell you what steps to take.

Egg donation - Egg donor recruitment and screening

All of the donors in our egg donation programme are guaranteed to undergo a stringent screening process.

Egg donation - Selection of the perfect egg donor for you

With the guarantee that the physical characteristics of the donor are similar to yours.

Egg donation - Donor ovarian stimulation treatment - Initiation of egg recipient medication

Hormone treatment to obtain the maximum possible number of eggs. Alternatively, eggs from egg banks may be used. The recipient takes tablets in order to prepare the endometrium.

Egg donation - Donor egg retrieval

The eggs are harvested by follicular puncture, performed transvaginally.

Egg donation - Semen sample processing

To ensure that the most motile sperm cells are selected.

Egg donation - Egg fertilisation and embryo culture

The eggs are inseminated in the lab, checked to see if they have been fertilised, and cultured for 2-5 days.

Egg donation - Embryo transfer

The embryos are deposited in the uterus by a very simple procedure which does not require anaesthesia.

Who it is for

IVF with donated eggs is recommended if:

  • You no longer have ovaries because they have been removed.
  • Your ovaries do not work well, whether:
    • for physiological reasons, such as menopause,
    • for genetic reasons,
    • due to early failure.
  • You are a carrier of a genetic disease, and there is no other way we can prevent its transmission.
  • You have not managed to become pregnant after various IVF attempts using your own eggs.

Sandra and Marty, together at last

"After trying virtually every method imaginable to get pregnant, after many years of waiting and several miscarriages, Sandra eventually tried egg donation, an option she had never even considered at the start. The result was Marty, whom she describes as "her little miracle".
