International Survey on Egg Donation, what do women think about this.

Due to the great interest aroused by the egg donation issue, Ovulum conducted the I International Egg Donation Survey and the results are more than surprising. Here you have all the data.

Surely you have read enough articles or know some case of egg donation either from your own experience because you have a friend who has donated eggs or received from a donor.


Egg donation is one of the most used and successful techniques in assisted reproduction treatments and with a great growth in the last years, mainly because the woman delays more and more the age of its first pregnancy. All this means that there is a greater demand for egg donors and that it is necessary to know in depth what motivates the act of donating eggs in women.

For this reason, at the end of 2016, Ovulum launched the I International Survey on Egg Donation to find out what women think, what their knowledge is, their experience if they donated eggs, their motivations, etc. …

This survey was conducted to women in Spain, Argentina, and Mexico and included the last question as a novelty in this type of survey which turned out to be the most interesting in terms of their answers. “Is there anything you want to add?” It was an open and non-mandatory question, where the respondent could answer anything. In general, this type of question does not usually have a very high response, but in this survey, of the 599 women who completed it, 201 answered that question, that is, 33.56%.

Who answered that question?

The country classification of the respondents who answered that question was:

Spain: 72 reviews – 35,82%

Mexico: 81 reviews – 40.30%

Argentina: 48 comments – 23.88%

And their ages were between 18 and 38 years, although, of these, 93.03% were between 18 and 30 years; Also distinguished whether they had experience in egg donation or not.
