What is international donation?

We've partnered with two leading European clinics; Vitanova in Denmark and IVI in Spain to offer you the option of using an international egg and sperm donors for your IVF treatment. Our partner clinics offer the same high quality treatment as CREATE and have excellent success rates, so be rest assured you're in good hands.

This means that you will complete a large part of your treatment in your local CREATE clinic here in the UK, and then visit one of our partner clinics in either Denmark or Spain to give the sperm sample and for your embryo transfer.

Benefits include:

  • Shorter waiting time for donor eggs
  • Different anonymity options - In Spain, donors are anonymous and in Denmark they can be either anonymous or ‘open’
  • Access to larger donor banks
  • Simple patient journey - Your monitoring & medication is provided by your local CREATE clinic, with only one or two trips to our partner clinic

Vitanova - Denmark

Vitanova is a leading European donation clinic, with over 15 years’ experience of helping patients from around the world access egg and sperm donor services.

In the UK, patients needing egg or sperm donation services must use ‘open’ donors. This means that any child created using a donor, once they reach the age of 18, is able to access identifying information about the donor, such as their full name, last known address and date of birth.

In Denmark, patients have the option to choose an open donor or an anonymous donor which means that no identifying information about the donor is stored.

IVI - Spain

IVI Spain the world’s leading donor egg IVF provider to give our patients access to their egg donation programme, advanced technology and leading expertise.

In Spain, egg donation must be completely anonymous and there can be no links or contact between donor and the recipient couples. Recipient couples can only know very basic non-identifying information about the donor, such as complexion, height and eye colour. Donor-conceived individuals are prohibited from finding out any information about their donor.

Many couples in the UK use egg donation programs overseas because there is greater availability of donor eggs, thus reducing waiting times if their treatment is time-sensitive.
