Double donation is permitted in Denmark. At StorkKlinik, we have extensive experience in the use of open, known and anonymous egg and sperm donors. We have a short waiting period for double donation.
Double donation became legal in Denmark on 1 January, 2018. This means that both the egg and the sperm are donated – and thus the child is not biologically related to either of its parents. Double donation can assist childless couples that cannot use their egg or sperm, as well as single people and lesbians, who are not able to use their own eggs and also require donated sperm.
At least one of the donors needs to be open (able to be contacted). This means that it is possible to use a known donor, e.g. a friend, sister or other family member. During an egg donation, the donor may not be too closely related to the male partner (e.g. his sister).
Many people also use StorkKlinik’s egg donors or buy sperm via a sperm bank. StorkKlinik is able to help with open, anonymous and anonymous plus donors.
Advice for the use of donor sperm
At StorkKlinik, we maintain a close dialogue and partnership with the sperm banks. We have many years of experience within the use of donor sperm. We provide advice on how you select and order donor sperm (open, anonymous and anonymous plus), and which questions you should ask when choosing donor sperm.
We provide advice about the entire process and always discuss the questions that naturally arise when a woman or couple decide to use a sperm donor.
At the clinic, we often speak to women who have had children via donor sperm. Thus, we have great insight into the entire process – from the first considerations surrounding the choice of donor, to the time that follows when the child asks the question: Who is my father? We also meet the children and their families when they grow up.
Dedicated egg donation team
We have a dedicated egg donation team at StorkKlinik. The team takes good care of the young women who wish to help childless people. The egg donation team is familiar with the entire process that you are facing. At the same time, our team can answer your questions and give you advice throughout the process.
Our team places great emphasis on helping people as quickly as possible, by coordinating all egg donations in order to simplify the process for you. That is why our waiting period is short.
We know that it means a lot to the egg donors when a donation results in a pregnancy. That is why we go out of our way to inform egg donors of whether the donation was a success. We also speak to many people who have been helped by an egg donation or a double donation. We then use this knowledge and experience in advising and helping others who will be undergoing the same process.
