Egg donation

 

In Austria, egg donations have been allowed by law since the start of 2015.

 

Women that do not produce their own eggs, for instance due to premature menopause, can receive assisted conception in the form of an egg donation. The use of donated egg cells can also be a feasible alternative if the ovaries were damaged by surgery, chemotherapy/radiation therapy or genetic diseases. The current law stipulates that women up to the age of 45 can receive this treatment.
Egg donors are eligible up to a maximum age of 35. We determine which woman would be a suitable donor after recording the person’s social history and conducting certain examinations.


Once we have identified a suitable donor, she then receives hormonal stimulation. The egg cell is extracted at precisely the right moment and then inseminated with semen from the recipient’s partner. At the same time, the recipient is prepared for subsequent embryo transfer. If this is not possible, embryo transfer can also be performed at a later date, although this requires the embryos to be frozen in the meantime.


The couple receiving fertility treatment are not informed of the donor’s identity. But on request, the child conceived by egg donation is entitled by law to receive information from us about the donor once it has reached the age of 14. The donor is never required to pay child support.

 

As one of the few facilities in Austria, the Tiny Feet Fertility Clinic has offered egg donation treatments since as early as 2015.

 

 

 

Semen donation

 

The use of donor semen can be an opportunity to fulfil the desire to conceive a child if the man does not produce any semen cells (azoospermia), if fertility treatments have not proved successful due to significantly reduced sperm quality, or in the event that the man suffers from hereditary diseases that should not be passed on to the child.          

Donor semen is always needed to satisfy the desire of lesbian couples to conceive, of course.

 

We determine which man would be a suitable donor after recording the person’s social history and conducting certain examinations.

The couple receiving fertility treatment are not informed of the donor’s identity. But on request, the child conceived by semen donation is entitled by law to receive information from us about the donor once it has reached the age of 14. The donor is never required to pay child support.
