Embryo Donation is legal in the Ukraine.  According to the Ministry of Healthcare in Ukraine, all egg and sperm donors are anonymous. For international patients, egg donors can become known, but only if the donor signs a voluntary consent of personal data disclosure.

There are two types of donation in the Ukraine:

  1.  Donation from patients who have decided to donate their additional embryos once they have completed their own families.
  2. Embryo donation from donors which are created for patients who choose a specific egg donor. Success rates are usually higher for this type of donation as the eggs come from young donors.

Donors can only donate between the ages of 18-35.

Many clinics work to European standards and ESHRE guidelines which limits donation only six times

Egg donors get paid approximately 350 Euros to donate
