Egg donation: everything you need to know

Egg donation is an option used by many couples and solo mom who have problems conceiving due to the quality of their eggs or due a low ovarian reserve. Age is the most common factor to indicate an ovodonation cycle.

Currently, the IVF method with donor eggs is one of the most demanded treatments in fertility clinics. Spain, due to its legislation and the high technological level of its fertility clinics, is the European country where the highest percentage of treatments of this type is performed, a 40%.


How is the donor chosen?

One of the issues that most concerns people who undergo IVF with egg donation is how the donor is chosen and what medical tests are performed. At Reproclinic we have our own donor bank. Our donor candidates pass strict physical and mental health checks, well above the mandatory tests required by law. If you want more information about how donors are selected and what tests go on, you can visit our blog post: ‘How are egg donors chosen and what medical tests do they go through?


What are the advantages of carrying out the treatment in Spain?

The great medical experience in this field and the use of the latest technology are not the only reasons why Spain has the highest rate of IVF treatments with egg donation. Spanish legislation firmly protects the anonymity of egg donors and semen donors. In addition, not only the anonymity of the donors is maintained, but the donation must be altruistic and disinterested. This means that donors can not be paid, they simply receive compensation for the inconvenience (displacement, etc.), which is also set by law.

Due to this difference, the cost of an IVF cycle with donor eggs can be up to 50% cheaper in Spain than in the United States, for example, where donors receive a minimum of $7,000.
