Legal Regulations

At Trianglen Fertility Clinic, we perform all types of fertility treatments that are legal in Denmark.

We offer treatment of heterosexual couples, woman-woman couples and single women.

The treatment may be with the husbands or male partner’s semen or with donor semen.

Donor semen may be from an ‘Anonymous donor’, an ‘Extended profile donor’, an ‘Open donor’ or an ‘Own donor’.

There may be medical issues that preclude treatment, for example HIV, hepatitis B or hepatitis C.

At Trianglen, treatment can start immediately. The only exception is that we unfortunately have some waiting time for oocyte donation. It is legal to perform oocyte donation from a donor whom you know, and who has accepted to donate oocytes to you. It may be a friend or a family member (not mother or daughter). If you have your own oocyte donor, we can do oocyte donation without wait.

Legal regulations 
We can do treatments within the limits of the law in Denmark. Some of the central elements of the law are summarized below.

Age of the woman 
Fertility treatment may not be performed after the woman has turned 46 years.

Sperm donation 
May be from an ‘Anonymous donor’, an ‘Extended profile donor’, an ‘Open donor’ or an ‘Own donor’. Donated eggs and donated sperm may not be used together.

Oocyte donation 
Oocyte donation may be with eggs from an anonymous donor or from a donor whom you know. The donor cannot be your mother or daughter.

Double donation
Double donation - simultaneous donation of eggs and sperm - is now legal in Denmark.

Cryo-preserved embryos and oocytes 
Cryo-preserved embryos and oocytes may be stored for up to five years.

Parent ‘suitability’ 
There must not be doubt about the ‘Parent suitability’.
