How does the egg donation program work?

  • The ovulation of the oocyte donor is stimulated. The donor is injected with drugs for the growth and maturation of eggs. The dosage of the drug for the donor is selected individually. Every 2-3 days, a control ultrasound scan is performed to assess the growth and size of the follicles.
  • Ovarian puncture. Oocytes are collected under general short-term anesthesia. The procedure is carried out under the control of an ultrasound sensor. The procedure is painless and lasts about 10-15 minutes.

ATTENTION!

Information about the identity of the gamete donor (egg or sperm) is anonymous. The donor also does not receive information about the patients for whom the gametes are intended. The clinic signs an agreement with the donor on participation in the donation program. Donors who participate in the program receive material compensation and free examination.

Legislative standards

The procedure for donating gametes is enshrined in Ukrainian legislation, in the Order of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine No. 787 dated 09.09.2013 "On approval of the Procedure for the use of assisted reproductive technologies in Ukraine."
