Egg donation in Greece

Egg donation is the process by which a woman donates eggs for purposes of assisted reproduction.

Given the difficulty that many women face about getting pregnant with their own ova, more women every day are looking in to egg donation as their solution in order to become pregnant

Egg donation is now a simple and painless process, during which the couple is provided with donor eggs.  Then, with the use of the recipient's sperm, they are fertilized and implanted to the recipient woman.

Do I need donor eggs?

Egg donation is a very promising solution for you if you have one of the following probelms:

  • Non-existent ovaries
  • Early menopause
  • Background with multiple miscarriages
  • Older women
  • Infertility resulting from cancer treatment
  • Women with hereditary diseases
  • Women with no response to ovarian stimulation drugs
  • Women who have multiple failed IVF therapies

Reciepient women are usually 35-45 years old and have tried many years unsuccessfuly to have a baby.


Egg Donation treatment, is a quite straightforward procedure as there is no waiting list and donor availability is more than efficient.

Legislation in Greece permits only anonymous altruistic egg donation and are only compensated for their time off work. The donor and recipients do not know each other's identity and the children born using donor oocytes cannot know their genetic origins in the future. The reciepient couple only specific characteristics can be given, such as height, weight, colour of eyes and hair, complexion of skin as well as educational level and occupation. Donor matching is determined depending mainly on the physical characteristics, therefore we would be grateful if you could provide us with a photo of you. There is a wide variety of egg donors, so hopefully the decision will not be restricting.
All the donors living in Greece and most of them are Europeans but we have also Africans and few Asian donors.

We screen our donors as required by the Greek law and in compliance with the HFEA guidelines. This includes a complete physical examination, tests for sexually transmitted diseases as well as genetic screening, to exclude the possibility of inheritable diseases.  Furthermore, a complete personal and family medical history is taken. Additionally, both the recipient and the partner need to be checked for HIV1,2, HCV, HBsAg and VDRL. Donors and recipient couples are obliged to sign standard consent forms, which will safeguard the respective rights of both parties.

An initial consultation is required, which for the moment takes place in ‘’Ovum Fertility Consultants Group’’.
