Egg Donation is the anonymous, altruistic and selfless donation of eggs from one woman to another in order that the recipient can have a child.
Today, almost 20% of couples have difficulties having children and have to turn to assisted reproduction techniques to be parents. In some cases, the semen and eggs of donors are essential to achieve a pregnancy.
By being an egg donor, you will help realise the dream of many people.
Thus, if you want to be a donor and you meet these ments:
In a free initial consultation, our doctors will perform a detailed medical history:
To first step is to perform ovary stimulation to help the ovaries to mature eggs. These mature eggs will be ed and donated to the recipient women. The ovary stimulation consists of a hormone treatment that can be administered at home subcutaneously for 10-12 days. The doctor will explain the adequate dosage and how to administer it so that you can do it easily with no problems.
During the ovary stimulation process, the specialist will monitor you through different medical tests such as the transvaginal ultrasound and hormone analysis tests, which are usually conducted frequently to ensure the effectiveness of the treatment.
Once the gynaecologist decides that the moment has come to the eggs (when it is considered that the ovarian follicles can support a mature egg), the ion is scheduled, which is performed under slight sedation. It is a simple intervention which will enable you to return home in two or three hours.
The process is generally well tolerated and only in exceptional cases can ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) occur, which is an exaggerated response to the treatment and something that today, with the treatment protocols used, is very rare. Other problems described are infection, haemoperitoneum or ovarian torsion, which also rarely occur.
Each donor receives compensation for the inconvenience caused, which is set by the Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality, following the recommendations of the National Assisted Human Reproduction Commission.
The altruistic act of donating eggs gives the donor great personal satisfaction at feeling useful by helping others.
