Egg donation in Czech Republic
Donated eggs from a suitable anonymous donor are fertilised with sperm provided by the patient’s partner. IVF using donated eggs gives women who can’t conceive using their own eggs a chance to have their own baby.Contact us
Course of treatment
Egg donation is legal in the Czech Republic and subject to strict control. Our donors are young women aged from 18-32. All donors undergo thorough medical examinations to assess their physical and mental health.
A suitable donor will be selected by our doctors on the basis of the questionnaire you completed. You will receive non-identifying information about the donor while preserving her anonymity (age, appearance, interests, blood type)
Egg donors are compensated for accrued expenses associated with egg donation.
Optimally, the whole process from the initial consultation to a positive test takes about 2 months.
- First you will be asked to fill out a form (donor typing), where you will specify your requirements regarding the donor’s appearance.
- We will ask you to provide us with your photo or, with your permission, we will take a photo of you at the clinic.
- We will look for a suitable egg donor based on your requirements.
- You will be informed as soon as a suitable egg donor has been found.
- Your menstrual cycle will be synchronised with the donor’s cycle (usually using contraceptives), so that the endometrium is ready to receive the embryos in the optimally timed period.
- The uterine lining (endometrium) needs to be thick enough for an embryo to implant successfully.
- As a rule, you will start taking pills containing female hormones (oestrogens) on the 1st day of your menstrual cycle.
- The doctor will recommend an ultrasound to assess the thickness of the endometrium on the 10-12th day of your menstrual cycle (at the clinic or by your gynaecologist).
- We will discuss the results of the scan (by phone or e-mail).
- We will confirm the planned day of egg retrieval from the donor.
- Your partner will come to the clinic on the day of egg retrieval to provide a sperm sample. Or, as agreed, we will use your partner‘s previously frozen sperm sample.
- We use the ICSI method of directly injecting sperm into the egg for fertilisation.
- On the day of egg retrieval from the donor, you will start taking another female hormone (progestogen).
- Following fertilisation, the embryos will begin to divide and grow.
- Embryos can be cultured in the laboratory for up to 120 hours (5 days), after which they must be transferred into the uterus or frozen.
- The embryologist will determine the best time for embryo transfer based on the number, development and quality of the embryos.
- Surplus good quality embryos will be frozen for possible further use.
- The transfer of the embryo or embryos into the uterus is performed without anaesthesia using a thin flexible catheter (tube), the end of which is guided by ultrasound for precise placement.
- The transfer is completely painless.
- The embryos are injected into the uterine cavity with a small amount of liquid (culture medium).
- You will then rest in bed for about 10-15 minutes and will then be discharged from the clinic.
- Rest is recommended for 1-2 weeks after embryo transfer (no strenuous physical activity, sexual intercourse, or hot baths).
- You can go back to your normal routine after 1-2 weeks, but we still recommend avoiding strenuous physical activity.
- Take your medication regularly as indicated in the discharge report.
- Have a pregnancy blood test 14 days after embryo transfer and let us know the result.
- If the pregnancy test is positive, continue to take the prescribed medication until the 12th week of pregnancy and make an appointment for an ultrasound (in approximately 10-14 days) with your doctor.
- After the 12th week of pregnancy, gradually taper and discontinue the medication as recommended by your doctor.
- Standard prenatal screening also takes place, together with a check-up at your gynaecologist´s.
- If the pregnancy test is negative, stop all medication and contact us. We will discuss the next steps with you and plan for the transfer of your frozen embryos.

The clinic uses laboratory methods that increase the chances of successful pregnancy
We will suggest suitable methods following an initial consultation with a doctor. In the meantime, you can compare their effectiveness.
ICSI is the injection of sperm directly into an egg. This significantly increases the chance of fertilisation.More information
We can increase the chances of pregnancy by selecting only the best quality embryos for transfer. We can identify these through continuous monitoring in EmbryoScope.More information
In the absence of live sperm in the ejaculate, there is the possibility of obtaining sperm surgically from the epididymis (PESA or MESA) or testis (TESE).More information
This method is used to disrupt the protective envelope (outer shell) of the embryo in order to make it easier to implant (nest) in the uterus.More information
Testing the genetic makeup of embryos before transfer to the uterus reduces the risk of birth defects.More information
