How are embryos matched?

“…Well the Millennium shift came, the year 2000, we all remember what we did then, right? I got cancer, Hodgkin's lymphoma... And when I stand here now 17 years later, you understand that it went well! Except for one important thing…"


The matching of your embryos to you is based only upon your own physical characteristics such as eye colour, hair colour and blood group. Egg and sperm donors that are available for our embryo adoption programme have provided the clinic with detailed medical and social information about themselves, including photos.

If before or after your embryo transfer you should decide that you would like the extended egg donor profile details and photos of your donor this can be arranged for you.

If however you would prefer to choose your own egg donor from our extensive database and gain more in-depth information about their personality, social background and educational history then our Personal egg donation programme with the usage of donor sperm can be used so that embryos can be created that are more suitable in meeting your human values and personal needs. Some women prefer to use sperm from sperm banks in Europe. If so we are more than happy to help you with the shipment of the sperm.

Would you like to tell us about your needs so that you can receive our professional recommendation about the best donor choice?
