Understanding Egg Donation: An FAQ Session with Marta from Ferticentro

Welcome to a journey into the captivating realm of egg donation! In this blog article, we’ll delve into the frequently asked questions about egg donation from a recent webinar, exploring everything from the legal aspects to the selection process of donors with insights. Whether you’re considering egg donation as an option or simply curious about the process, remember that you’re not alone on this journey. With the right support and guidance, you can navigate the path to parenthood with confidence and optimism.

In Germany, the woman who gives birth is considered the legal mother. If a surrogate is used, she would be the legal mother. However, egg donation is illegal in Germany, so the recipient would be legally recognized as the mother.

Can I receive photos or detailed information about the egg donor?

Although Ferticentro cannot provide photos in Portugal, they do offer detailed descriptions of donors. Their aim is to match donors based on your preferences, including physical characteristics and personal traits.

How does the egg donor selection process work?

You will engage in a conversation with Ferticentro’s donor selection team to outline your preferences. Subsequently, suitable egg donors will be presented for your consideration, granting you the final decision.

What criteria do you use to match egg donors with recipients?

Ferticentro considers various factors, including physical attributes, educational background, and personality traits. The goal is to find an egg donor who aligns with your preferences as closely as possible.

Is there a limit to the number of families that can benefit from a single donor?

Each egg donor can donate up to four times in their lifetime. However, at Ferticentro, quality is prioritized over quantity to ensure successful outcomes for recipients.

Is there an age limit for undergoing egg donation treatment?

In Portugal, where Ferticentro is based, treatment is available up to the day before your 50th birthday. However, individual factors such as ovarian reserve and overall health are also considered.

Can I access extended profiles or additional services for donors?

While Ferticentro does not provide services such as voice samples or handwriting analysis, they offer comprehensive donor profiles to assist in your selection process.
