Oocyte donation

Egg donation means that an egg from another woman is fertilised with the man's sperm and subsequently transferred to the uterus of the recipient woman. This treatment is suited for women who are unable to produce own eggs of a sufficiently good quality or who have a genetic disease that they do not wish to pass on to their children. You can combine egg- and spermdonation.It is a statutory requirement that one of the donors must be an open donor, so the child has a chance to know more about his ancestry in the future.

You can bring your own egg donor

You are permitted to bring your own known donor if you require oocyte donation. Your mother or daughter may not donate eggs, but your sister, a friend or any other member of your family would be suitable donors. The donor may not be closely related to the man, as this would increase the risk of the child acquiring hereditary diseases. Cross donation is also permitted, whilst the use of surrogate mothers remains prohibited.

The waiting time for donor eggs is 1-3 month, dependent on the donorprofile. Contact us for more specific information.

We need more egg donors

It is permitted to use volunteer egg donors in Denmark. Cross donation is also permitted. It is up to the donor whether she wants to be anonymous or known, or whether she wants to help a specific person by donating eggs to the shared pool of donated eggs by means of cross donation. We are therefore very interested in hearing from women between the ages of 18 and 35 who live in Denmark and would be interested in donating eggs. The more donors we have, the more women we can help.

We are allowed to pay you 7000 DKK for a donation (july 2016). If you live in Denmark, you have to pay tax.

Women who are undergoing IVF treatment and are between 18 and 35 may also choose to donate eggs. If you would like to donate some of your eggs to another woman, please tell us before you start treatment, as we will need to take some extra blood samples before we collect your eggs.
