In an egg donation, we use the eggs of a donor to fulfill the dream of the baby to a child's desire pair. This can also make pregnant women who otherwise have no opportunity to have a child.
In Austria, egg donation has been allowed by law since 2015.
The legal requirements are these:
You have been diagnosed with infertility. Still, you do not want to forgo the happiness of a family?
We gladly accept your egg donation treatment. If you have a donor from your family or friends, please bring them to the Wunschkind-Klinik.
The donor must be physically and mentally healthy. It must meet stringent criteria and conduct various investigations so that we can rule out infectious and hereditary diseases and you will receive healthy, fertile oocytes. In addition, we carry out a detailed, medical consultation with the donor before starting the treatment.
The donor never has a maintenance obligation for the child donated with her eggs. The child is not entitled to inherit. The donation is always voluntary. The donor may not demand payment or other consideration for the donation.
We perform a hormone stimulation with the donor and remove the follicles at the optimal time.
The preparation of the egg recipient takes place in parallel. Both treatments are coordinated. On the day of egg collection, we ask the man for fresh sperm. A discreet room in our clinic is available. We mix the ova with the sperm of the man.
After that, we closely monitor the development and insert one to two embryos into the woman's uterus at the right time. If there are more embryos, we freeze them for you. They are available for future treatment cycles.
After two weeks, we can determine with a blood test, if you have developed a pregnancy. Four weeks after the transfer of embryos to the uterus we check if the embryo is alive.
The chances of getting pregnant with donated eggs through artificial insemination are much higher than with IVF or ICSI treatment with your own eggs.
The reason is a higher rate of healthy oocytes, as the donor is usually much younger than the recipient in donations. Per treatment cycle, the probability of becoming pregnant is 65%. However, success does not just depend on the treatment itself being free from complications. The likelihood of pregnancy is also influenced by your age, hormonal status and lifestyle. Obesity, stress, nicotine and excessive consumption of alcohol can reduce your chance of success.
Our clear goal for all our patients is to achieve pregnancy in as little as one treatment cycle.
"Artificial insemination with donated eggs is the only chance for a child for some pairs of children. We help you seize this opportunity. "
We all want genetically own children in the first place. Sometimes that is not possible. The Austrian law allows egg donation when infertility is present. If there is still a wish for a child, the egg donation can help, but still have a child.
This can be the case in these situations:
While egg donation is permitted in Austria, embryo donation from existing embryos is prohibited by law. A combination of sperm and egg donation is possible.
You want a child?
We inform you about all possibilities to get pregnant. Arrange an initial consultation.
With the donor, a hormone stimulation is carried out for about two weeks. The growing oocytes are then removed at the optimal time and the resulting after fertilization embryo is frozen. Egg donation takes about three weeks.
