Egg Donation Programme

Take the first step to make your dream happen and we will do the rest, thanks to the EVA Egg Donation Programme, especially designed for you.

Egg Donation

Egg Donation

Spain is a reference when it comes to Reproductive Medicine and especially, Egg Donation. Many women and couples travel overseas to undergo IVF treatment with donor eggs and they choose our clinic to get the best fertility care and the highest success rates. The main reasons why you should choose our fertility clinic are:

  • At EVA Clinics, donors are carefully selected before being accepted in our Egg Donation Programme. They must meet very strict criteria to confirm they are excellent donors.
  • No waiting lists for treatment: our egg bank is based on a continuous flow of donors since many women in Spain decide to become egg donors and are keen to donate.
  • Egg Donation is regulated by law in Spain and establishes that donations are anonymous: the process is strictly confidential and the identity of the donor cannot be revealed.
  • EVA Clinics are equipped with the latest technology in Assisted Reproductive Technology and our team uses cutting-edge methods and protocols.

HOW DO WE CHOOSE OUR DONORS?

At EVA Clinics we have very strict requirements for donors to be eligible to donate eggs for our patients.

  1. In accordance with Law
    Egg and sperm donation in Spain are regulated by law. The aim of the law is to guarantee ethical procedures and professional medical services and biological processes involved in reproductive healthcare. The Spanish law establishes that donations must be anonymous, voluntary and altruistic.
  2. Anonymity
    The process is strictly confidential for both the donor and the recipient. This involves that the identity of the donor cannot be known, therefore the donor cannot be chosen by the intended parents. Confidentiality works both ways, since the donor will not receive any information about the recipient and the future child.
  3. Voluntary
    Egg Donors voluntarily join our Egg Donation Programme. However, all donors must pass a series of screening tests and interviews before being qualified for donation.
  4. Altruistic
    Trading eggs, sperm and embryos is not permitted under Spanish law. Egg and sperm donation in only permitted to help patients with fertility problems have children.
  5. Egg Donor Application and Screening Tests
    All prospective donors must undergo a series of tests and medical consultations to ensure they are healthy and free from genetic or infectious diseases. During this consultation, our medical team will review the donor’s height, weight and blood pressure to confirm they are within the normal range. The age of the donor is an important factor too. According to the law in Spain, they can be women between 18-35, however at EVA Clinics we choose donors aged below 30.
  6. Medical and Psychological Tests
    Following the first consultation, the prospective donors must undergo strict screening as provided by law. These tests include the assessment of their fertility status along with their physical and psychological health. Donors must meet specific requirements:
    – Health screening tests, including tests for liver and renal function and routine coagulation tests.
    – Infectious disease screening including testing for sexually transmitted diseases.
    – Pelvic ultrasound exam that covers Pap smear test and cervical culture for sexually transmitted diseases and evaluation of ovarian reserve.
    – Genetic testing for Karyotype, Cystic Fibrosis, Fragile X syndrome.
    – Consultation with our fertility specialists.
  7. Blood type
    Blood type is a factor to consider when undergoing egg donation treatment. The blood type of the recipient, the donor and the recipient’s husband (if applicable) can play some role in the matching process. Although it has no bearing on the outcome of the Egg Donation cycle, blood type must be compatible in cases when the parents do not wish to tell the child. At EVA clinics we always try to select a donor blood type that could create similar blood types to those that the intended mother (and father) could create naturally.
  8. Phenotypic similarities
    When selecting a donor, the phenotypic characteristics such as the race, height, skin colour, hair colour and eye colour must be taken into account. Donors must complete a specific form that includes their physical characteristics and the clinic registers this information in order to find the closest match.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT EGG DONATION

  • What are the Success Rates of Egg Donation?
    Our Egg Donation Programme offers excellent success rates of 60%. Good quality embryos come from good quality eggs, therefore successful implantation requires high-quality eggs.
  • What Are the Advantages of Egg Donation over Other Fertility Treatments?
    The use of donor eggs has significantly increased with higher success rates for patients who have struggled to become pregnant. Apart from higher rates, there are many other advantages such as the possibility to have fertility treatment without the need to undergo ovarian stimulation. Additionally, with Egg Donation, since younger eggs are used, there is a lower risk of chromosomal birth defects.
  • Should I Use Fresh or Frozen Eggs?
    After egg retrieval, the eggs can be donated or vitrified (frozen) for future use. Using fresh donor eggs requires a specific treatment protocol in order to synchronize the recipient’s menstrual cycle with the donor’s cycle. On the other hand, there may be special circumstances in which the eggs are cryopreserved (frozen) and then thawed and used for treatment. For example, for specific physical characteristics, to plan the trip to Spain well in advance or to facilitate the management of the Egg Donation Programme when there is not a synchrony between the endometrial preparation of the compatible recipient and the egg donor retrieval. Egg freezing has become a very viable option thanks to the advances in the freezing process, meaning that quality is not compromised.

No matter the scenario, all potential donors go through the same testing and screening before they are cleared for donation

  • Is There a Waiting List to be Matched with an Egg Donor?
    There could be no waiting time (dependent on the type of donor that you are looking for) to proceed with treatment, once all the relevant screening tests have been completed. We have a large number of donors and no waiting list for Egg Donation.
  • Can I still Undergo Egg Donation Treatment if I am a Single Mother or if I Have a Female Partner?
    In Spain it is allowed to undergo fertility treatment regardless of marital status or sexual orientation. Donor sperm is used in these cases (anonymous sperm donation).
  • independently on the woman’s marital status and sexual orientation. In this case the sperm from an anonymous donor is used.
  • Are There any Risks or Side Effects with Egg Donation?

There are no risks involved. Egg Donation is a simple and safe process. There is no ovarian stimulation needed or egg retrieval under anaesthesia. The embryo transfer procedure is an easy procedure, very similar to a smear test, and does not need an anaesthetic.

  • How Many Trips Do I Need to Make ?
    For Egg Donation treatment, typically only two trips to Spain will be required. The first involves a first consultation to complete tests, freeze sperm sample (if applicable) and plan the start of treatment and medication. This trip can usually be done in one day. The second trip will be for the embryo transfer. If you could only travel once, we could plan your cycle of treatment in advance and coordinate everything accordingly.
  • How Long Would My Stay be in Spain?
    Your first visit to EVA Clinics can be planned in one day trip. The next visit, for the actual embryo transfer, may involve one two-day trip at the most, depending on the type of treatment.
  • What Treatment Will I Need to Receive Donated Eggs?
    In order to prepare the lining of the womb you will need to take some medication (typically combination of the pill, oestrogen pills or patches and progesterone pessaries) and this will be monitored with ultrasound scans that can be performed in your home country. The treatment is easy to understand and follow.
