Do you know any couples who unfortunately have fertility problems and would you like to give them a helping hand so that they too can experience the joy of parenthood?
As a candidate-donor, you must meet certain conditions:
- You should be between 21 and 35 years of age.
- You should not have any relevant health problems.
- There should be no relevant genetic conditions in your family. You will be asked to disclose information on this matter in the questionnaire to be completed and during the consultation with the physician.
Keep in mind that egg donation can entail risks and side effects.
According to Belgian law, in principle, eggs are donated anonymously. This means that neither the donor nor the intended parents and their child(ren) are given any information on one another. Under no circumstance may the fertility centre provide the different parties involved with information on the other parties.
However, known donation – in which the donor and the intended parents know each another and decide for themselves what to tell the child(ren) conceived – is also an option. To find out more, have a look at this page.
