Using an egg donor

We can help you with egg donation at Trianglen and our waitilist is short.

The Danish law also allows double donation which is the simultaneous donation of both eggs and semen. When making a double donation, at least one of the donors must be "non-anonymous".
 
In Denmark the female age limit for all fertility treatment, including egg donation is 46 years.

Types of egg donors

Egg donation can be from a known donor. That can be a friend or a family member (not mother or daughter).

Egg donation can also be from an anonymous donor. That means that donor and recipient will never get any information about each other’s identity.

The last possibility is egg donation from an open donor. With an open donor the child will be able to contact the donor, typically after the child has turned 18 years.

The egg donation process

The most common way is to retrieve eggs from the donor, fertilise the eggs with semen from the partner or a sperm donor, culture the embryos to the blastocysts stage and then freeze them.

After this the recipient is prepared for embryo transfer. If the recipient has a stable menstrual cycle the transfer of the blastocyst can be done in “own cycle”. If the recipient does not have a stable cycle the endometrial lining will be prepared with estradiol tablets and some days before the transfer you will also take progesterone vaginal pessaries.

In some cases an alternative is to synchronise the egg donor and the recipient so that the embryos will not be frozen but instead be transferred without cryo-preservation.
