Egg donation

Price 5.000 Euros

Egg donation means donation of eggs from one woman to another. Egg donation takes place in connection with infertility treatment. The egg donor will always be anonymous. Donated eggs must never be fertilised with sperm cells from a donor, since the child always must know one of its genetic parents.

In Denmark women who are in the fertile age and under 35 must donate their eggs. A it is not allowed to remunerate a woman to donate eggs the supply of donor eggs in Denmark is very limited.

At Nordica we offer treatment with egg donation. We have a co-operation with fertility clinica abroad. The clinic has an important experience with egg donation and also offers eggs to women with a Scandinavian look. If you want egg donation abroad, all consultations, preliminary examinations and the medical treatment take place in the Nordica Fertility Clinic. The fertilisation of the egg and the transfer of the fertilised egg take place abroad. After your homecoming the after-treatment takes place at Nordica.

The Nordica Fertility Clinic takes no responsibility for the egg transfer and the result, since the treatment takes place abroad. Our function is, on the request of the clinic abroad, to examine you and inform about your general health.

If you want to know more about our egg donation program you can call us on +45 on all weekdays between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Egg donation – when?

Egg donation might be a help to women, who cannot themselves produce suitable eggs for fertilisation, neither the natural way nor through infertility treatment. Premature menopause, Turner’s syndrome, age, or sterilisation because of chemotherapy might cause lacking quality of the eggs or lacking egg production. These women can be helped to pregnancy through egg donation. Women who have a hereditable disease can have a healthy child through egg donation.

Receive donor eggs

The decision to receive donor eggscan be difficult. It is therefore important that you take your time to consider your decision. We will do what we can to satisfy your need for information, so that you safely make the decision that is right for you.

The procedure of receiving a donor egg is relatively simple. Prior to the donation it is important that you are well informed about your treatment – we take care of that. You will consent to the fact that the child we produce with the donor egg is yours and that you are committed to take care of the child.

Before we start the treatment with egg donation, we will examine both of you, so that we know the quality of the man’s sperm quality and we know that the woman’s uterus is able to receive the fertilised egg. The man will hand in a sperm cell sample, which is analysed.

You are expected to arrive abroad with you husband. He will give a spermsample to fertilise the donor egg.

Two days after the fertilisation the clinic can inform you about the number of eggs that have cleaved and therefore can be transferred to the uterus for normal growth. Therefore, it is important that you are in the Spanish clinic at the appointed time. Here the fertilised eggs will be transferred to the uterus for normal growth. Two weeks later we will perform a pregnancy test at the Nordic Clinic in Copenhagen.

For some time prior to and after the egg transfer the woman needs some medication (Estradiol) that prepares the uterus to receive the fertilised egg. The possibility for the egg to adhere to the uterus and become a pregnancy is thus improved.
