Pour un don d’ovocytes à la française


Oocyte donation, initially proposed in agonadal women, saw indications expand to ovarian deficiencies and failures of in vitro fertilization (IVF), resulting in a significant increasing demand. The recruitment of oocyte donors is a critical issue for all countries that have allowed this practice. The French legislation, with the laws of bioethics, is clearly the most restrictive of European countries, imposing an absolute free gift from mother. The different solutions in the neighboring countries are analysed and in particular the interpretations made in respect of gratuity and compensation. Motivating donors (spontaneous, relational, or by reciprocity), but also motivating the medical teams can organize a program of oocyte donation in France. The authors present their results of three years experience, demonstrating that this system is possible in the current legislative framework.
