Ovum donation is an altruistic, confidential and economically compensated act, whereby one woman gives her ovules to another to help her become a mother.
The donor receives an economic compensation stipulated by Law that will not exceed € 1000 without prejudice to the altruistic and non-profit status of the donation
This compensation will be for the inconvenience and travel to the Center, as well as for the time dedicated to the donation for the inconvenience caused during the donation.
Donors must be over 18 years of age and under 35 years of age, have good psychophysical health status, and not be carriers or have a history of hereditary genetic diseases.
The donor must undergo ovarian stimulation with injected drugs to recover the largest possible number of oocytes from their ovaries and then extract them under sedation.
The donation process takes about 12-14 days from the start of the medication until the eggs are removed
During this time, the donor must go to the clinic for ultrasound controls to monitoring the stimulation.
The donor must pass an informative interview, where a questionnaire about her personal data and family history will be made. Afterwards, he will have to pass a psychological test, a gynecological and an analytical check to know his good state of mental and physical health, in addition to ruling out hereditary diseases.
The donation does not involve pain but some discomfort. The part of the stimulation is somewhat uncomfortable since the administration of the medication is injected, but not painful. The follicular puncture to extract the ovules is under sedation, so the patient does not feel any kind of pain during the process. Later, you may have some minor discomforts derived from it but that can be relieved with mild analgesia.
The donor can carry out several donation cycles, if that is her wish, with the limitation reflected in the Assisted Reproduction Law of 6 live born children.
The donation has no physical risks, beyond the inconveniences arising from the puncture, or psychological. You can resume your daily activity a couple of days later with total normality and it will not affect your chances of being a mother later.
