The egg donation is one of the most important aspect of the modern assisted reproductive technologies (ART). It costs several times less than a surrogacy. Moreover, that is not the extent of its importance – egg donation is just as much important as it is demanded. The difference is that by taking a decision to become an egg donor, a woman does not expose her body to radical and long-term changes as in the case of a surrogacy. In addition, given the current development of the ART in Ukraine, all possible risks are minimized. Egg retrieval procedure can be done repeatedly. However, to preserve woman’s reproductive health, a maximum of 8 attempts of controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) for life is recommended. A repeated attempt of the COS can be done not earlier than 2-3 months after the previous one.
To participate in the egg donation program, you are invited to fill in the egg donor profile. Before you fill in the application form, read the requirements for egg donors below. After the approval of your candidate as an egg donor, your information will be included in our database. If the intended parents select your application to participate in the egg donation program, we will notify you immediately.
For the participation in the egg donation program, we offer an average of 15,000 hryvnia per ovarian puncture. However, this fee may be revised on your request depending on the number and quality of eggs produced during the ovarian puncture. The fee is paid at the time of completion of the ovarian puncture procedure.
An egg donor undergoes all medical examinations in the IVF clinic. We also cover transport and in some cases accommodation expenses in Kiev for the time of the ovarian puncture procedure.
