Spain is a leading country for assisted reproduction treating patients from all over the world. Many of these couples have been trying for a family for many years, and decide to try for egg donation outside their country.
Spain’s Egg Donation Anonymity
Donation in Spain is known for the anonymity of both the donor and the recipient. Neither the recipient nor the donor will know anything about each other, although the recipient is offered general details about the donor such as Height, weight, colourings and blood group.
Both donor and recipient are required to sign consent forms prior to starting treatment that guarantee anonymity and authorization for the treatment.
The donors: selection process and laws in Spain
The donors are selected and screened according to the SEF protocol (Spanish fertility society). Following the protocol provides us with top quality eggs which together with a team of medical experts, laboratory highly trained staff and coordinators are key to the success of the treatment.
Ladies who wish to become an egg donor are required to be between 18 and 35 years old, be healthy and have a normal reproductive system. In order to comply with the law, they go through strict tests and evaluations. After the treatment the donor receives a compensation for any possible inconvenience that it may have caused them in their daily routine and can be anything between 600 and 1000 Euros.
Although most donors donate eggs once or twice in their lives, a maximum of six live births are permitted from the same donor.
