At O.L.G.A. Fertility Clinic, we have our own bank of egg donators: young, fertile, attractive women who have passed our medical tests. Most women who need donated eggs to get pregnant have gone through difficulties in finding a suitable eggdonator. Just a part of people has a sister or friend able and willing to go through the egg donation treatment on their behalf.
Finding your own egg donator
Egg donation is a procedure that requires a lot of motivation from the eggdonator. She must be prepared to undergo the whole cycle of IVF treatment up to and including the step where some of her egg cells are collected. She must accept the fact that, if successful, the treatment will result in the birth of a child who carries her genes. She must also understand the fact that the treatment may be unsuccessful. Finding such person among your friends or relatives is hard.
There are cases in which sisters or friends offer to become an eggdonator for someone, although not everyone is able and willing to commit to the time and effort that egg donation involves. And even then, you may not want to accept the offer, for instance if the person who accepted to donate does not look like you. It is a highly personal issue, yet the would-be donor may be upset if you reject their offer. There may also be some medical reasons why a person should not become an eggdonator. For example, many clinics do not accept egg donators who are overweight, or whose age is too high for the treatment to have a good chance of success. Furthermore, the would-be eggdonator may feel under pressure to donate, and we have encountered some cases where an offer to donate is then pulled back when the donor finds out more about what is demanded of her, or if she has second thoughts. For the infertile women or couples who are relying on this eggdonator, such a refusal can be depressing.
Shortage of eggdonators
Unfortunately, it is also not easy to find an eggdonator using a help of a clinic or agency. An amount of European countries now have restrictive legislation on anonymous egg donation. Since these laws came into effect, the number of women willing to donate their eggs to help infertile couples has decreased dramatically. In many countries such as Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Norway, egg donation is actually forbidden. In the Netherlands, many clinics don’t accept eggdonators under the age of 30, or those who have not completed their own family, while egg recipients who can receive the treatment must be no older than 45. Even in countries with liberal laws, such as the UK, the removal of anonymity means that waiting lists for egg donation can extend up to several years. The possibility of finding an eggdonator at all is small then. And finding a donator who fits your requirements, is nearly impossible.
The O.L.G.A. Fertility Clinic Eggdonator Bank
To overcome the deficiency of egg donators, O.L.G.A. Fertility Clinic maintains an egg donator ‘bank’ of young, healthy, attractive women. Our donors all have proven fertility (they have at least one child of their own). They have passed all the required medical tests, and are ready to donate when they are chosen. Thanks to these women, O.L.G.A. Fertility Clinic has no waiting list for egg donation. Find out more about our recruitment and screening process for eggdonators.
