Deciding on receiving donor eggs can be difficult, and it is important that you take the time to consider the decision. A donor can choose to be "anonymous", "anonymous plus", "open" or "known".
By "anonymous donation" is meant that contact can never be established with the donor. You can receive basic information about the donor's skin, hair and eye color as well as height and weight. It is at no time possible to obtain the donor's identity.
Anonymous plus donation
By "anonymous plus donation" is meant that you get the same information as for anonymous donation plus a number of extra information about the donor. The donor decides what she wants you to know (eg education and interests). It is at no time possible to obtain the donor's identity.
By "open donation" is meant that at a later date (typically when the child has reached the age of 18) contact can be established with the donor via VivaNeo. In addition, it is possible to get information about the donor.
By "known donation" the receiving couple themselves have established contact with a woman who wants to donate her eggs. This donor is not compensated by the clinic, so you have to agree with the donor how to compensate her. The well-known donor must not be closely related to the man, which means she must not be a sister or cousin to the man, or be a daughter of the husband's cousin.
Anonymous cross donation
A anonymous cross donation works in the way that you have an egg donor who wants to donate her eggs - but not to you. Her egg is donated to another couple or other single women (by double donation).
