How to donate oocytes

For different reasons (age, hereditary illnesses and previous surgical procedures, etc.) ovaries can loose their capacity to produce healthy oocytes which in turn creates complications for conception.

Women in this situation depend on the help offered by others who participate in the Oocyte Donation Programme.

The great majority of young donors are always very pleased to participate, sometimes repeating the process; feeling proud of having helped someone else fulfill their wish of becoming a mother.

Donors are anonymous and are chosen after going through a strict selection process. They must provide compatible oocytes for the recipient woman.
