Recently, more and more zones on the world map become red (Fig.) - these are countries where problems of infertility are observed. According to WHO approximately 10% of all couples of reproductive age are infertile, and primary  female infertility reaches 3%. At the same time, the highest level of secondary infertility is observed in women of the African phenotype, up to 12% of all women.

In general, at the global level, the number of infertile couples in 2010 was estimated at 48.5 million [PloS Medicine]. Many negative factors lead to the fact that annually up to 4.5 million couples face infertility. According to experts, female infertility in a couple is the most frequent cause.


40% of couples have infertility due to the male factor. The largest factor is the female factor, almost half of the cases (50%). And the rest is a mutual factor in the couple.Feskov V.A. Candidate of Medical Sciences, member of ASRM, ESHRE, UARM

Causes of female infertility

Consider what types of infertility women can have and their causes. Modern medicine distinguishes the following sources of female infertility:

  • endocrine disorders (inherent, stress, infection, etc.) = up to20 %
  • pathology of the fallopian (uterine) tubes (infections, congenital) =  30 %
  • pathology of the ovaries = 10–20 %
  • uterine pathology (childbirth, abortion, surgery) = 10 %
  • pathology of the cervix = 5 %
  • endometrial damage =  5 %
  • immunological incompatibility and other reasons = 5–15 %

Regardless of skin color or type of problem, couples want to become a complete family and have a baby. We found that most future parents “feel connected” when they find a close egg donor. Our doctors note the high desire of future parents to make the child look like them. This is a natural desire. People seek to this for psychological and social reasons. Therefore, in the last decade, in the donor base of egg cells, attention has been paid to the donor race and its phenotype. But due to cultural reasons, black women did not donate eggs, or they did so in a limited number of cases. Therefore, potential parents were looking for an African or black egg donor and had to wait a very long time.

How to find an African egg donor?

Currently, the problem of finding an African egg donor is not sufficiently solved. So in the European countries and in the USA the number of couples with reproductive problems is higher than the offer of egg donor bases. Maybe you want to find a black egg donor with longer or curly hair? If you are looking for an African egg donor with a lighter skin color or darker, pay attention to its height, IQ, then such a search has always been difficult.

African egg donor base or clinic?

The most common solution for finding an African egg donor is to contact the egg donor database. Often clients turn to a human reproduction clinic, and the clinic turns to a donor base. The most reliable result is when the clinic has its own egg donor base. There are several reasons for this:

  • if the clinic and the base are located in different countries, it is necessary to solve the issue of egg transportation;
  • when participating in the donor base process, the responsibility to the client is distributed between the clinic and the base, which will be more difficult if each person acts in their own legislative base;
  • candidates undergo a strict medical examination due to the interest of the clinic;
  • sometimes the egg base can be presented by several small representative offices, which can easily close or move, and the clinic will not going anywhere.

 The ideal option is universal. For example, the clinic of prof. Feskov, who has a large own bank of egg donors, can also turn to an external egg database if the recipients wish. Due to this, the waiting time for the start of treatment can be minimized. You can choose a donor by a photo with a description of the phenotype and physiological parameters. We know that the geography of origin is very influential, and in different cultures there are many legacies and religions that also need to be taken into account. Therefore, the selection will also take into account the place of origin of donors. For example, if a client comes from North Africa, then the donor will be selected from the same region in order to preserve the characteristic external features. Our staff will help you choose egg donor profiles to find the perfect match.

Selection criteria for African egg donors

Different countries and clinics have their own conditions and selection criteria for donors. Here is an example of how we select African egg donors:

Oocyte donors are selected based on their age (30 years or less), the candidate has at least one healthy child, and general appearance characteristics. Before adding a donor to our database, she must take part in a medical and psychological assessment. Complete clinical examination of participants, testing for sexually transmitted diseases, hormone testing, testing for genetic diseases (chromosome typing, screening for common genetic diseases, or genome analysis for all clinically significant genetic diseases). All participants receive consultations in which they are informed about the process itself and the nuances of the donor procedure. They also receive psychological counseling. For the entire presence of the participants in our database, we periodically conduct tests for drugs, precursors and smoking.
