Sperm, Oocyte
and embryo
donation programs

"The love we give away is the only love we keep" (Elbert Hubbard)

Donor programs include sperm, oocyte and embryo donation and are the ultimate solution for many couples who thought they would never have their own children otherwise, allowing them to become biological, if not genetic, parents.

Donation is allowed in Greece and, according to Greek legislation, must be entirely anonymous. Male donors are between 18 and 40 year old, female donors between 18 and 35. All donors undergo several examinations, including genetic screening for STDs (sexually-transmitted diseases). Many clinics use also sperm from international sperm banks.

The first pregnancy from oocyte donation was reported in 1984. Today it is a promising method in numerous cases such as premature ovarian failure (POF), genetic disorders, severe endometriosis, poor egg quality and following chemotherapy. Donors receive reimbursement for costs arising from the donation and donate up to two to three times per year.

For couples requiring both sperm and oocyte donation, or for single women, an alternative to oocyte or sperm donation is embryo donation, also known as prenatal adoption. The recipient typically receives two embryos, either from the clinic bank or in a fresh treatment cycle.

Success rates in donor programs are very high, particularly in the oocyte and embryo donation program, due to the usually excellent embryo quality.

Preparation for the recipient can be with or without downregulation. The monitoring stage involves several ultrasound examinations during preparation back home. The recipient will typically travel to a first consultation with the clinic, during which the male partner will give a sperm sample. On the day of each sperm collection, a blood test for STDs is performed in the clinic.

Initial consultation includes a pelvic examination and an ultrasound as well as usually a mock transfer. All required examinations should be available prior to this date. Last but not least, on the day of the first consultation, most recipients will go through the paperwork with a coordinator and will sign the necessary consent forms prior to beginning treatment. Unmarried couples or single women must sign a consent form with a notary.

Once the medical team gives their approval and issues a treatment plan, the recipient may return home and will have to come back only for embryo transfer.
