Oocyte donation (egg donation)

Oocyte donation is a variant of artificial fertilisation using oocytes (eggs) donated by an anonymous donor. This solution is particularly suitable for women whose ovaries are no longer functional for various reasons or whose own oocytes are incapable of fertilisation, as well as for women whose own eggs carry an increased risk of genetic birth defects. Egg donation is a very successful method of infertility treatment.

In the European Union, the donation of reproductive cells is standardised by EU Directives 2004/23/EC and 2006/17/EC, which are binding for all Member States. In the Czech Republic, these Directives have been implemented in Act No. 296/2008 Coll. on Safeguarding the Quality and Safety of Human Cells, and Decree No. 422/2008 Coll., which are more stringent even than their European equivalents.

Under the current, valid laws of the Czech Republic, the donation of embryonic cells is voluntary and anonymous for both the donor and the recipient, as well as any children conceived using this method. The clinic is required to keep the medical records of female and male donors for 30 years and is subject to periodic inspections by government authorities (State Institute for Drug Control, Ministry of Health).

Embryo donation is a variant of artificial insemination using the sperm from an anonymous male donor and oocytes (eggs) from an anonymous female donor.
