If a woman cannot get pregnant using her own egg cells, donor eggs provided by an eligible, anonymous donor are fertilized by the sperm of the patient’s partner.
Egg donation is legal in the Czech Republic and it is subject to rigorous control by the state authorities. Egg donors are healthy women between 18 and 35 years of age. All egg donors undergo a thorough medical screening assessing their physical as well as psychological health condition. Genetic testing aimed at detecting/ruling out genetic disorders, as well as STD testing for the presence of sexually transmitted diseases ( HIV, hepatitis B and C, syphilis) form an integral part of the medical screening.More information
