Egg donation in Greece

IOLIFE-IASO Assisted Reproduction Clinic in Athens is able to offer egg donation in line with Greek legislation. All donors are aged less than 35 years old and are extensively screened to rule out any medical or genetic problems. Recipients are exclusively allocated at least 7-8 eggs. Any spare embryos belong to the recipient and are frozen to be used at a later stage, either in the case of an unsuccessful result or to ensure genetic siblings following a birth.

The egg donation program at IOLIFE-IASO is extremely efficient with pregnancy rates of more than 80%. There are no waiting lists for egg donation and the clinic can search its database to find the most compatible choice for a recipient within 24 hours of a request.
