Become a Donor
You are aware of the problem of infertility and would like to become a donor? Here are some criteria to help you determine if you are eligible.

Egg Donation

If you’re aware of the infertility struggle that many people face, and you wish to help by donating your eggs, we applaud your selflessness and are eager to assist you with this generous act. Egg donation is an altruism-based donation, which means that you will not receive any financial compensation for your donation. 

 

There are two ways to donate eggs. It can be an anonymous donation, which means the eggs go to someone who is unknown to the donor. Otherwise, it can be a directed donation, which is when the donor and the recipient know each other. 

 

Anonymous donation

At clinique ovo, we understand that egg donation is a complex process and for that reason we have a dedicated team of physicians and nurse coordinators working to help you through every step. You will have access to the egg donation nurse coordinators throughout your cycle to answer your questions through email or phone. These people will be able to guide you through your treatments and support you throughout your process.

Criteria required for an egg donor:

  • Be under 35 years of age (ideally under 32)

  • Normal BMI

  • Have a good ovarian reserve:

    • Blood test for Oestradiol, FSH and AMH
    • Ultrasound on day 2-5 of the cycle
  • Be approved by the physician to undergo the treatment cycle

  • Be approved by the psychologist

  • Have completed the required tests

  • Genetic analyses can be carried out for the donor if you would like. You can discuss this with your treating physician

Become a Sperm Donor

If you’re aware of the infertility struggle that many face, and you wish to help by donating your sperm, we applaud your selflessness and are ready to help you follow through on this generous act. 

 

At clinique ovo, we are always looking for potential candidates interested in becoming anonymous sperm donors. The selection process must be very rigorous, in order to respect the mandatory standards established by Health Canada. All donors residing in Canada must go through the same process, which is strict and systematic.

 

Sperm donation is anonymous. Your name will never be given to the parents or to a child conceived using your donation. You will not know anything about the couple who receives your sperm. Contact between the parties is impossible.

 

The donor must undergo several tests both before he is accepted as a donor and during the donation period.

Here is a list of pre-screening criteria to become a donor:

  • Be between the ages of 18 and 40.

  • Be in good general health.

  • Not have been born or lived in any of the following regions: Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Niger and Nigeria.

  • Not to have have been an employee of clinique ovo (nor a family member of a clinique ovo employee).

  • Not have a medical history of hemophilia or related bleeding disorders for which the patient has received human blood-derived clotting factor concentrates.

  • Never have been permanently or temporarily deferred from donating blood.

Please note that appointments and donations are exclusively done at the Montreal clinic (8000 Decarie blvd, Montreal, QC, H4P 2S4).
