General requirements

Corresponding to Russian law, egg donors (ovum donors) should be women who have good health aged between 20 and 35 who have at least one child of their own. These requirements comply with the prerequisites of the European Society for Human Reproduction (ESHRE). The average age of our egg donors is just 26 years, and no donor in our bank is older than 31. All our donors are anonymous, as this is supportet under Russian law.

If you would like to come with your acquaintance as an egg donor to O.L.G.A. Fertility Clinic, she may be even older than 35. Though you should keep in mind: the success rate of treatment is notably decreased when older egg donors are involved. The genetic risks increase also, especially in terms of conditions such as Down’s syndrome, so prenatal diagnosis is highly recommended.

How we screen candidates

At O.L.G.A. Fertility Clinic, egg donors go through an all-inclusive medical and psychological test to ensure they are in good health to donate. The screening starts with an interview to evaluate the general abilities and intellectual level of a potential donor.
