Each year in Catalonia, Spain and the world many children are born thanks to the solidarity and altruism of many women who donate their eggs. Without the donor it would not be possible. In fact, one out of three treatments of Assisted Reproduction occurs through egg donation.


Today there are many programs to publicize egg donation but also to give recognition to these women who selflessly donate their eggs.


Egg donation, a resource for couples with difficulty conceiving

The current situation is that there are many women and couples who are unable to have a child naturally, and only another person can compensate for this deficiency. Although there have been many advances in science and medicine, without a donor could be no life, and here lies the importance of women egg donors, and that enable other women to realize what they want most: to be mothers.

It is very important to be aware of the importance of this first step egg donation. Hence the importance of caring for donors from all aspects (medical and emotional) operator to prevent any risk.


Role of units of assisted reproduction in egg donation

Assisted reproduction units become facilitators and intermediaries in the process of egg donation, which will finally close the circle with the birth of a child.

However, the process involves certain requirements that must be met, not all donors end up being suitable for egg donation. There are certain factors that can make the process not proceed:

  • Not meet the medical or psychological requirements
  • Lack of sufficient interest (from the units assisted reproductive want to avoid abandonment of the process in half)
  • medical or psychological safety of the donor

The above aspects are essential to ensure maximum safety and give importance to the selection, the allocation between donor and recipient, as well as high medical, essential surveillance throughout the process.


Who can donate eggs and what the process

Donors can in principle be women between 18 and 35 years of any nationality, provided they do not suffer any disease. Before treatment, as already mentioned, a medical study of women who, in addition to determine whether it is suitable or not for the process, also serves the donor woman to know their health status will be made.

The process takes about 12 days, the need for a Sabbath. Note that the donation is anonymous and that the law provides equal compensation statewide.
