What is egg donation?

Egg donation is an anonymous and altruistic programme, during which one woman selflessly donates her eggs to another woman faced with a diagnosis of infertility and dreaming of having her own child. In vitro fertilization using donor eggs is one of the most successful methods of infertility treatment, as it uses the genetic material of healthy and young donors. During the cycle of in vitro fertilization with donor eggs, an embryo resulting from fertilization of a donated egg with the partner’s sperm is implanted into the woman’s uterus.
