Which cases need to resort to donation?

There are many couples with fertility problems who cannot become pregnant; they have to resort to egg, sperm or embryo donation to achieve a pregnancy. On the other hand, women increasingly want to help others achieve a pregnancy and decide to become an egg donor.

Egg donation is recommended in cases where the woman cannot achieve a pregnancy with her own eggs. The most common, albeit not the only, causes are:

  • Age
  • Low egg quality
  • Low ovarian reserve after repeated in vitro fertilisation failures
  • Genetic disorders
