Egg donation

We offer egg donation to couples and single women

You do not have to give up your hope of becoming pregnant even if you are not able to form usable eggs yourself. We offer egg donation to women and couples worldwide. Book a preliminary consultation with our specialists. They can advise you on your options.

In Denmark, both couples and single women can be offered treatment with egg donation if they are unable to become pregnant with their own eggs. We also offer double donation, where both eggs and sperm are donated, if there is a medical reason for this.

Who can receive donor eggs?

You can receive egg donation until you turn 46. This means that the treatment must have been commenced no later than when you are 45 years old and that it stops when you turn 46.
