Egg Donation

Egg donation is the most popular infertility treatment among our international patients. There many reasons for this.Courtesy of Serge Bertasius Photography at FreeDigitalPhotos.netCourtesy of Serge Bertasius Photography at Apart from our high pregnancy rate, we have plenty of available donors with one to one match. In addition, we offer very competitive prices compared to IVF centers overseas.

The number of women who require donor eggs in order to become pregnant is rapidly increasing nowadays. Women with poor ovarian response to the IVF medications are very likely to need donor egg for a successful pregnancy to occur. Diminished ovarian reserve might be due to a history of malignancy and chemotherapy, premature ovarian failure, history of surgery in the ovaries or advanced age. The pregnancy rate with donor egg is very high because the implantation potential of the embryos is similar with that of the donor's age (55-60% pregnancy rate).

Egg donation is permitted in Greece. However, the anonymity is protected by the law. This means that the recipient is not allowed to meet the donor or see pictures of her. We can reveal the age, country of origin, physical appearance of the donor or level of education, hobies etc. The donor does not know the recipient either. Women who want to donate their eggs are younger than 35 years old and are undergone thorough medical examination including blood tests such as karyotype, cystic fibrosis, blood type and rhesus, hemoglobin electrophoresis (thalasemia, sickle cell test), syphilis, hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV I, II. The recipient of the donor egg should not be older than 50 years at the time of the embryo-transfer according to the Greek law.

In our state of the art Fertility Center, we would be glad, if we could assist you to become pregnant with donor eggs. We have assisted numerous couples worldwide to have their own children and we are confident that the same will happen with you. You will realize that we take into serious consideration your personal needs and you will be treated with professionalism and efficiency in a very friendly environment. As soon as you decide to be treated by us, we will send you a questionnaire and then talk on the phone or skype to arrange all the details for you. There is no waiting list. We coordinate your cycle with a donor's cycle. You are going to take some medications in order to prepare your endometrium (lining of the uterus) for the embryotransfer. 

The length of your stay in Athens will depend on your specific needs. We are going to decide this on the basis of each individual case. We can also provide donor embryo for single mothers.

I would be glad if I could assist you to have a successful pregnancy. Do not hesitate to contact  any questions.
