Assisted reproduction with non-anonymous donor

At Institut Marquès Ireland, patients who have to undergo an egg or sperm donation are offered the possibility of choosing whether they want to do it with an anonymous donor or not.


In case of non-anonymous donations, it is up to the patients to choose the sperm or egg bank or, if they prefer it, bring their own donor (for instance, a relative or a friend). Furthermore, when the child will turn 18 years old, he will be able to obtain all information about the donor. On the other hand, if the donor is anonymous, the physician will choose him/her according to the physical characteristics of the future parents; this way, patients will only be provided with the necessary medical information (family history, age and blood group).

In both cases, the process is carried out with maximum-security guarantees and the excellent service that we always offer at Institut Marquès.

Who can benefit from this new option?

All women or couples from any country who require treatment with egg or sperm donation and who, for different reasons, wish to choose their donor. There are different types of motivation for wanting a non-anonymous donation. For example, the desire to communicate openly to a child that he is the result of a donation, knowing that when he will turn 18, he will have the right to find out the identity of the donor, if he wishes so. There are also women without male partners who would like to choose their donor or have a child using the sperm of a friend or a family member.

How does this process work?

Like with any other assisted reproduction treatment, the first thing to do is to ask for a first consultation so that one of our specialists can evaluate your case and recommend the most appropriate protocol for you, either an Artificial Insemination or an In Vitro Fertilisation. The initial consultation at our clinic is free of charge.

The choice of the donor

If you decide to do the treatment with a family member or someone you know, both the person who donates, as well as the recipient woman or couple, will have to come to our clinic in Clane to complete the treatment according to the protocol established during the first consultation with the doctor.

The second possibility is to undergo a non-anonymous donation through an egg or sperm bank. In this case, patients should contact directly our partner banks. This process is very simple and fast. In each case, we will provide you with all the necessary information about the process, prices, terms and conditions, shipping times and we will answer any other question that may arise. Once you will have chosen your donor, you will only have to ask for the eggs or sperm sample to be shipped to Institut Marquès Ireland.
