Egg donation

What is egg donation?

Egg donation is an anonymous and altruistic programme for women who have been diagnosed with infertility and are dreaming of having a baby. In the programme, one woman (donor) selflessly donates her eggs to another woman (recipient). Artificial insemination with donor eggs is one of the most successful methods of infertility treatment, because genetic material of healthy and young people is used. In the cycle of artificial insemination with donor eggs, the recipient is implanted an embryo in the uterine cavity; the embryo is developed by donor eggs fertilized with partner sperm.
