The IVF using donated oocytes concerns women who lack their own oocytes due to menopause. It is a documented scientific process with excellent results and the success rate in specialized units is over 50%.

In our Unit we use this technique for more than 20 years with excellent results and with responsibility as well as by implementing particularly strict scientific and ethical criteria.

According to the Greek legislation which is in force since 2005, the donors are healthy Greek women under the age of 35, who consent anonymously to a specific number of oocytes offer in the context of their own effort and volunteering or eggsharing.

The donors give a detailed personal and family history and are tested for

  • contagious diseases (hepatitis, AIDS, syphilis, etc.)
  • haematological diseases (thalassemia, cystic fibrosis)
  • the existence of chromosomal abnormalities by karyotyping.

The physical features are also simulated between the two women.

The oocyte receiver should be checked for the well being of her uterus and the appropriate hormonal preparation of the uterus for the embryo reception should be done. The waiting time to find oocytes is between 1-3 months.
