Our Egg Donation Program, which was created in 1991, is one of the pioneering
programs in Spain and is aimed at those couples whose sterility problem may be
solved by replacing the woman's eggs with the eggs from a young, healthy and
fertile donor and also for couples at risk of transmitting genetic diseases to
This technique is the most effective since the pregnancy rate for each embryo
transfer is of 57%, being increased to 94% after having undergone 4 egg donation
cycles. An increasing number of couples resort to this technique to achieve
their purpose: have a child.
At Ginefiv, the egg donation program is very simple. In fact, the patient
only has to come to our clinic twice at the most: the first time in order to
create her medical history by studying all the information needed to start the
treatment and the second time for the embryo transfer.
Yes, it is possible. However, our advice is to come twice, regardless the
treatment that the patient will be undergoing.
If possible, we generally recommend all patients to come to our clinic before
starting the treatment so that our medical team can meet them and perform an
embryo transfer test (for her) and a sperm survival test and sperm freezing (for
him). If patients come twice to our clinic they will only need to stay 24-48
hours during the second visit and will avoid all possible problems during the
embryo transfer. If they prefer to come only once, they will need to stay in
Madrid during 5 or 6 days.
We recommend this option (coming to Spain just once) in the following

International Patient Support team to discuss your situation so that they can
advise you what is best for your treatment.
It is important to emphasize that even the egg donation is the most effective
and simple assisted reproduction technique, it is however the one that requires
the highest level of coordination and synchronization of the assisted
reproduction team. The experience of Ginefiv's medical team marks the
- Egg donation is absolutely legal in Spain, regardless the patient's
nationality or origin.
- Egg donation is anonymous. Under no circumstances will Ginefiv be able to
reveal the donor's identity to the recipient couple and vice versa.
- At Ginefiv, all donors have to pass exhaustive medical exams, including
interviews and medical tests, in order to confirm their fertility and physical
health and to check that neither they nor their relatives are carriers of a
disease that could be inherited.
- Thanks to the high number of egg donors at Ginefiv, our clinic is able to
easily find an egg donor with physical features compatible with the
