IVF treatments with egg and sperm donation in Estonia

Estonia connects the dots between Scandinavia, Central Europe and what lies to the east. Situated  on the eastern coast of the Baltic Sea in Northern Europe, Estonia is becoming a next hot spot for foreign patients.

Estonia has an excellent healthcare system and lower IVF treatment cost compared to most European countries. Fertility treatments are well regulated and the clinics are regularly inspected to maintain a high standard. Being a member of the European Union means that Estonia adheres to European Union Tissues and Cells Directive. For these reasons, together with the fact that Estonia has outstanding beauty and history, should make it a place to consider for fertility treatment abroad.

Egg and sperm donation – why choose us?

Our donors are exceptional young men and women,  whose voluntary act of kindness can help another couple or woman to achieve their dream of having a family. Egg and sperm donation is anonymous in Estonia.  Treatment for using donor eggs or donor sperm has an age limit of 50 years.

Egg donors must be under the age of 35, while sperm donors must not be over 40 years of age. Our donors are mostly aged between 20 to 35. The gametes obtained from one donor may be used in order to conceive babies to be born to up to six different women in Estonia.

While donors remain anonymous, the following information is disclosed about donors: nationality, skin colour, education, marital status, the existence of children, height, physique, hair colour and eye colour. This information is used for matching a patient to a donor in the best possible way.
