In 2013, the Ministry of Healthcare (MOH) of Ukraine approved the final procedure of the application of the Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) in Ukraine to strengthen regulation in this sphere. Ukraine regulations apply to the basic medical, legal and operations aspects of the ART in Ukraine. One of the major innovations that was introduced by the Procedure introduces a notary form of the surrogacy agreement in addition to the new forms of statistical accounting paperwork, which should be made in the medical institutions that use the methods of ART.
According to the MOH of Ukraine, all egg and sperm donors are anonymous. For international patients, egg donors could be identifiable in unique occasions as long as the donor signs a voluntary consent of personal data disclosure. Egg donors can only donate between 18 and 35 years. There is no centralized egg donor database so potentially egg donors can donate repeatedly. However, many IVF clinics work according to the European standards and ESHRE guidelines that allow donation up to 8 times throughout the life; repeated donation van be made no earlier than 2 months after the previous one. In order to donate, egg donors must, by law, undergo a number of tests to make sure that they are healthy.
Sperm donors in Ukraine have to be between the age of 20 and 40 years. There is a list of medical tests that are needed, by law, in order to donate too.
As per Ukraine regulations, embryo donation is also legal in Ukraine. There are two types of embryo donation. First, there is a donation from patients, who made the decision to give their surplus embryos once their family is complete. Next, there is embryo donation from egg and sperm donors that are created for patients who choose a particular egg and sperm donor. Success rates are often greater for the second type of donation as the eggs come from the younger donors.
