How to choose the right egg donor?

How to choose the right egg donor? Choosing your egg donor.
At our clinic you can choose your own egg donor from our detailed Database of Egg Donors!

In all European clinics an egg donor is chosen for the patient by a doctor, or medical team. AVA-Peter is the only clinic in Europe which offers you the opportunity of choosing an egg donor yourself. 

We know that the extent of the information the patient will receive about the donor is very important for many women and their partners.  Some women’s desire is to find an egg donor with maximal physical similarity to own looks, other women choose “by feeling”.  We therefore offer extensive information about egg donors, which includes descriptions of their looks and looks of their relatives, family history, as well as their photos of the donor in the age under 12. 

For many women, physical characteristics are not as important as the egg donor’s psychological, social, educational and familiar background. Many patients are interested to find out more about our egg donors’ human values! This is why we ask all of our donors to write their own personal motivation letters for our egg donor data base. 

Our egg donor database offers you the opportunity to take the leading role in creating your future child. Your process of choosing the best egg donor from our egg donor data base is very personal and we do not proceed if you are not completely happy with the donor you have chosen. It's therefor possible for you to base your choice of an egg donor on the qualities which are most important to you, as we believe that you and your partner’s priorities and human values are the most important criteria in helping you to choose the right individual egg donor.

We respect your choice!

We understand that the detailed information about the donor is very important, but we also understand that the egg donor is not the most important person is this project. The most important person is you; an egg from a donor would not be able to grow into a child by itself. An egg needs a uterus and sperm and you are the one that combines these pieces together to create your child. You are the parent to this child’s existence!
