Our egg cell donors


Egg donation is not the method of choice — it is the method of exclusion



"...If I would have known at the start, what I know now, I would not have done my IVF-attempts at my age as egg donation gave us result straight away. It was the best decision of our lives!"

Karin and Pedro, Sweden


At O.L.G.A. Fertility Clinic, we have our own base of egg cell donors: young attractive women who have passed our thorough physiological and psychological tests. The majority of women who need donated eggs to conceive a child have faced difficulties in finding a appropriate egg cell donor meeting their requirements. Just a minority of women has a female relative or friend able and willing to undergo the egg donation process on their behalf.

Finding your own egg cell donor

Egg donation is a process that demands a lot of dedication from the donor. She must be ready to go through the whole IVF treatment cycle up to and including the phase of egg harvesting. She must be able to accept the idea that, if successful, the treatment will lead to the delivery of a child with her genes. She must also be ready to accept the possibility of the treatment may fail. Finding such a special person among your friends is noticeably hard.

In some situations sisters or friends suggest themselves as donors, although just a small number of them has enough will and motivation that egg donation requires. And even then, you may not wish to accept the offer, for instance if the lady concerned looks differently from you. It is a highly individual issue, yet the donor candidate may be upset if you reject her as your donor. There may also be health related reasons why a woman should not become an egg cell donor. For example, many clinics do not want to accept egg cell donors who are overweight, or who are too old for the treatment to have a good chance of success. In addition to that, the would-be egg cell donor may feel under pressure to donate, and we have encountered many cases where an offer to donate is then withdrawn. This usually occurs when the donor becomes more acquainted with what is needed of her, or if she has second thoughts. For the childless woman or couple who are entrusting their chances to have a child to this egg cell donor, such a refusal can be devastating.

Shortage of egg cell donors

Sadly, it can also be a hard task to find an egg cell donor with a help of a clinic or hospital. Many European countries now have laws strictly prohibiting anonymous egg donation. Since this came into power, the amount of women offering to donate their eggs to help childless couples has considerably fallen. In countries such as Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland egg cell donation is forbidden. In the Netherlands, the most hospitals do not invite egg cell donors under the age of 30, or those who have not completed their own family, and the egg recipients should be younger than 45. Even in countries with much more tolerant laws, such as UK, the retracting of anonymity resulted in waiting lists for egg cell donation stretching up to years. The possibility of simply finding an egg cell donor is low, and finding the one who fits your requirements, is almost impossible.

The O.L.G.A. Fertility Clinic Donor Bank

To overcome the deficiency of egg cell donors, O.L.G.A. Fertility Clinic maintains an egg cell donor ‘bank’ of attractive, young, fertile ladies. Our donors all have proven fertility, with at least one child of their own. They have passed comprehensive medical tests, and are ready to donate when they are chosen. Thanks to these ladies, O.L.G.A. Fertility Clinic has no waiting list for egg donation. Find out more about our recruitment and screening process for egg cell donors.
