Information about fertility egg donors at O.L.G.A. Fertility Clinic

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

Our fertility egg donors

At O.L.G.A. Fertility Clinic, we maintain our own “bank” of fertility egg donors: fertile, young, attractive women who have all gone through our psychological and physiological tests. Most women who are in need of donated eggs to conceive their child have encountered many obstacles in finding a good fertility egg donor. The majority of these ladies don’t have a sister or an acquaintance able and wishing to go through the egg donation procedure to help them.

Finding your own fertility egg donor

Egg donation is a form of treatment process that takes a lot of will from the donor. She must be prepared to go through the whole IVF treatment procedure up to and including the phase where her eggs are harvested. She must accept the fact that, if successful, the treatment will give birth to a child with her genes as the result. She must also be ready for the availability of the failure of treatment. Finding such a special person, especially among your friends or relatives is not easy.

In some cases friends or sisters offer to donate, although only few of these women are ready to spend their time and input their effort in the steps that egg donation involves. And even then, you may not want to accept this offer, especially if the person concerned has an appearance that differs much from yours. It is surely a highly private issue, yet a future donor may be upset if you reject her offer. There can also be several medical reasons why a woman should not become a fertility egg donor. For instance, many clinics do not invite fertility egg donors who are overweight, or whose advanced age may result in significant decrease in the treatment success chance. Even more, the would-be fertility egg donor may afterwards reject her offer to donate. This usually happens when the donor becomes more informed of what is expected of her, or if she has changed her mind. For the infertile woman or couple whose chance of having a child is depending on this fertility egg donor, such a situation can be devastating.

Shortage of fertility egg donors

Sadly, but it can also be hard to find a fertility egg donor using an assistance that a clinic or hospital may provide. A large number of European countries now have laws that make anonymous egg donation forbidden. This resulted in that the number of women who want to donate their eggs has fallen dramatically. In countries such as Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Norway, egg donation is forbidden at all. In the Netherlands, the majority of hospitals do not accept fertility egg donors who are younger then 30, while egg recipients must be no older than 45. Even in countries which have more tolerant laws, such as the UK, the removal of anonymity resulted in waiting lists for egg donation stretching up to years. The chances of finding a fertility egg donor at all are unclear. And finding the one who fits your wishes, is often nearly impossible.

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

To cope with the shortage of fertility egg donors, O.L.G.A. Fertility Clinic maintains an egg donor ‘bank’ of healthy, attractive, young ladies. All our donors have proven fertility (they have born at least one child of their own). They have passed comprehensive medical tests, and are ready to donate as soon as 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 process for egg donors.
