Egg Donation Program

Short description of the program:

Egg (or embryo) donation for IVF fertility treatments, is indicated for women who, for various reasons, do not produce eggs. In these cases, it has been proven that egg / embryo donation is a very effective procedure in a wide range of problems. The indications for egg donation or embryo donation include the following conditions:
• Gonad dysgenesia, carrying an inheritable genetic disorder such as muscular Dystrophy or haemophilia. Such diseases can be passed on to their children. Rather than risk giving birth to a child who might suffer greatly and die at an early age, some women choose to have a chance of a perfectly healthy child via egg donation.
• Surgical procedures to / removal or absence of ovaries (ovarian damage following surgery, radiation or chemotherapy)
• Women born without or with under-developed ovaries (e.g. Turner’s syndrome).
• Poor response to ovarian stimulation
• Failure of multiple attempts of assisted reproduction methods (IVF, ICSI)
• Early menopause. This, however, occurs much earlier to some women, even in their teens or early twenties, before they would even have contemplated starting a family. This condition is called premature ovarian failure or premature menopause.
• Patient aged above 45 (menopause). After the menopause a woman is no longer capable of conceiving because her ovaries stop producing eggs and sex hormones.

Short description of surrogacy program:

In traditional surrogacy (also known as the Straight method) the surrogate is pregnant with her own biological child, but this child was conceived with the intention of relinquishing the child to be raised by others such as the biological father and possibly his spouse or partner, either male or female.
The child may be conceived via home artificial insemination using fresh or frozen sperm or impregnated via IUI (intrauterine insemination), or IVF (in vitro fertilization) or ICSI which is performed in a fertility clinic, such as Crete Fertility Centre. Sperm from the male partner of the ‘commissioning couple’ may be used, or alternatively, sperm from a sperm donor can be used. Donor sperm will, for example, be used if the ‘commissioning couple’ is both female and where the child is commissioned by a single woman.
At Crete Fertility Centre we offer extensive counselling, on the issue of Surrogacy, covering all possible aspects, starting from the emotional & psychological implications, down to indicated tests that surrogates should receive and insemination methods suggested for conception.

    Short description of the fertility national law or policies in the country:

    The Greek legal framework for assisted reproduction services is one of the most progressive worldwide, establishing Greece (and Crete Fertility Centre) as an ideal destination for couples from abroad seeking treatment not available in their own country.
    Recent Greek legislation assists couples to realize their dream of having a baby, using egg or sperm donation, until the age of 50 for women and without age limit for men, in contrast to other European countries such as France. In addition, there is favourable legislation for couples considering host surrogacy as a treatment option, in contrast to countries such as India.
