Egg Donation. Anoymous egg donation in Greece - Europe
International donor egg program - Egg donation and embryo donation / adoption in Greece
More and more couples from Australia,
the US and other countries are travelling abroad for medical
treatment nowadays. And there are many IVF clinics throughout Europe offering egg
and embryo donation. Why should someone choose having egg donation in Greece?
Our clinic has more then 25 years experience in IVF with egg donation and is one of the leading egg donation climics in Europe. In 1987, our medical director Prof. Mantzavinos and his team has succeeded in delivering the 1st child in Greece born through the method of egg donation.
Today there are thousands of women who, for many different reasons need donated eggs in order to conceive with the moste reliable assisted reproduction technique. Egg donation is an anonymous procedure in which the donor provides oocytes to the receiving couple. Donated eggs from volunteers are fertilized with sperm from the recipients’ partner or donor sperm as required. After fertilization, the resulting embryos are transferred to the receiving patient after a period of five days.
At Embryoland we understand that egg donation is not always an easy
decision to make, or step to take. There are many reasons why a woman
may require egg donation and different journeys that they will have
taken before reaching us, but whatever the reason, or however different
the journey may have been, here at Embryoland we know that we can support
you and help you create a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby.
Egg donation is recommended for women who have:
1. Primary ovarian failure
2. Become menopausal, either naturally or as a result of surgery, radiation or chemotherapy
3. Undergone repeated failed attempts at IVF due to poor embryo quality or failed fertilization
4. Failed to respond adequately to fertility drugs during IVF stimulation
5. A history of repeated miscarriages
6. A genetic disorder which could be passed on to their child
Egg donation treatment involves fertilizing the donor eggs with sperm from the recipient’s partner or donor and transferring the resulting embryos into the recipient’s womb. The recipient is put on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to allow her cycle to be synchronized with that of the donor and for the womb to be prepared to receive the embryos.
Is egg donation - embryo adoption / donation treatment allowed in Greece?
Yes, based on the legal
the IVF treatment in Greece, donor egg programs are allowed to be offered. Therefore we have an egg donation program at Embryoland IVF Center Athens.
Short waiting list for egg donation in Greece
Restrictive legislation in countries such as the Australia, UK and others means
that in the case of egg and sperm donation, there is a major shortage of
donors as there is no longer anonymity for these people.
Greece there are no such anonymity issues which means that there are
plenty of donors and much shorter waiting lists for the donor egg program for our patients from abroad. This last issue is important, not only from an emotional perspective, but also from a
biological one. Anonymous egg donation and embryo adoption is guaranteed.
